Wasps, hornets, yellow jackets -- those, however, are a pestilence straight from the pit of hell. They don't care whether you're bothering them or not; they'll sting you just for fun. They get mad if you try to blow them away from your soda can, and sting you. They'll gang up on you and sting you while you're just innocently sitting there doing nothing, nowhere near them.
And the more often you or your children get stung, the more likely you/they are to develop an allergy. It only takes two or three stings to develop one.
I say they have no business building their house in your house, when they don't have your best interests in mind and have no intention of "not bothering" you. In the famous words of Bugs Bunny, "Of course you realize, DIS means WAR!"
I say don't play around with allergies and potential harm to your kids. Get rid of them! They'd do the same to you if they could.
