Pattuq: Where I live, we have these assholes:



They tend to stick to the mountains and rural areas, but I see the odd one in Tokyo. They bob lazily through the air in near-slow-motion, which creates a moment of frozen time wherein every panic response activates in your brain simultaneously. The knowledge that they can reach 60 KpH and release pheromones that empty nearby nests into buzzing lynch-mobs does not make me relaxed.


I hope that's a really little hand that, that, that THING is perched upon.

No, sadly those things are real. Last time I was in Japan one of those things flew into a Shinkansen train and caused a panic to say the least. Ugh, in Ohio we have White Face Hornets along with Yellow Jackets and they looove to raid wild fruit and will charge your ass from a good 2-3 meters away. Letting apples ripen on the ground is a great way to turn fruit picking in late summer into a hellish experience. I absolutely hate any sort of paper wasp/hornet/stinging thing with a passion, especially because mud wasps are far, far more friendlier and target some of the more ferocious spiders around here and while their nests are unsightly, they are pretty reasonable neighbors and will move if you destroy their nest. The little yellow freaks even build giant burrows underground sometimes and heaven help you if you drive a lawn tractor over it.

I am abso-farkin-lutely TERRIFIED of bees, wasps, etc anything with a stinger. I have no idea how that woman is even within 5 miles of that house, let alone still living there.

Overflowing with bees and stuffed with honey?


Funny you should mention that:

ReverendJynxed: Her repair costs would be covered if she sold the honey they are recovering. 2000 pounds of honey is worth quite a bit.


The problem is this honey is not in a frame that they can be easily spin through a machine, so getting the comb with honey and not larvae in it, extraction and filtration will cost a bit more. Quality will also be an issue, as these are wild bees that have built comb in a house around electrical wiring and pipes, etc. Who knows how badly the structure of her house has been affected. Also, have you ever cleaned up spilled honey? It's a nightmare.

Also says their homeowner's insurance won't cover it, that sucks. How would your policy account for that?
