“Structural firefighting gear will provide limited protection. . .”
It’s a favorite phrase in the DOT Hazmat guidebook. Yesterday I invoked it with the yellowjackets. I must have looked very silly going after the nest in full PPE, but it worked. The nest is gone, and I didn’t get stung.
Of course I found another nest while painting the trim last night. Right now the series is tied, with one nest to me and one to the bugs. We have a night game scheduled for this evening,
