Message from Facilities Director Jason Francois: Spraying of Hornet’s Nest – Mon, August 19, 2019; AM

Dear Colleague,

As summer progresses, the hotter and drier weather has begun to affect the behavior of some of our more aggressive hornets.

Unfortunately, there is a particularly threatening nest in the landscaping around the 2300 building. We have not identified the exact location of the nest because the area was vacated after the nest was riled. Our Grounds crew will identify and mark this area the morning of Friday, August 16.

The plan is for the nest to be sprayed the early morning of Monday, August 19. While the spraying of nests is not our preferred option at any time, this nest poses a hazard.

The product that will be used on the nest is called Spectracide PRO. Information about it can be found at this link or on this pdf.

If you would like an alternate work location or other accommodations on August 19, please contact Human Resources at (206) 546-5880.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

Thank you,
Jason Francois
Director-Facilities and Capital Projects
(206) 546-4514
