Giant sucking sound

No, it's not U.S. jobs heading south to Mexico. It's a "Wasp Sucking Machine" devised by an individual annoyed by yellowjackets disturbing his lunchtime on a daily basis. He discovered they were entering and exiting through a crevice in the building where he worked. Not content with using a Shop-Vac to remove them, he put together a contraption with a high-powered motor that sucked them out through a hose and into a glass-topped box to show off the catch.

Nine hours of running the machine netted thousands of yellowjackets in the box. Read more and see the photos here.
