If they suspect it is an invasive African species, why can't they go one tiny step further and tell us which? "A house in Spain was infested by a 7 meter nest of the African species Vespa hominivorax." It's that easy.

One spider is fine.

Twin spiders as well.

Five hundred baby spiders descending from the ceiling down to the pillow where I lie, and Aaaaaaaaaaagh!

Yeah regular wasps are fine and all, but those giant asian invasive ones are way better.

and I thought nothing could creep me out more than the spider pics/stories.

/wish I hadn't looked at that.

Sources say authorities were surprised, however, when what they initially thought to be a gigantic hornet's nest was actually discovered to be old man winter's fresh new look for summer.

So, how do you kill one of those nests without burning down the house or just making them really mad?

My first guess would be to drape the house in plastic at night then bug bomb it, but would that really get them all?

This headline (I refuse to glance up to see what it said) had the same effect on me as the movie poster for Man On a Ledge.  Instant fetal position.

Had a problem last summer with wasps constantly getting into my apartment somehow. One after the other. I had nightmares about getting hurt in the middle of the night. Lucky for me wasps make a real loud annoying sound so I was never surprised with one being right on me. I bought a can of RAID extra strength wasps killer and by the end of the summer I had just about killed every rich, whitebread farking yuppy that had been getting into my apartment.

One bottle of bleach and some amonia and come back a few days later with a hazmat team.

I'm not sure why you're ruling out burning it down. If I walked in on that my responses would start with burn it down and work up to nuke the site from orbit.

Nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

I have to say, high on my list of things not to do around a 22 foot farking wasp's nest, LEAVING MY FLASH TURNED ON would be pretty damned close to the top.

Brave photographer, or stupid photographer? Your pick.

Experts have examined the nest, which is said to be 21'9" in length, and say the common type of wasp found in gardens would never normally build a nest of this size.

Can't they tell what type of wasp it is by looking at one of the wasps?

See I would be OK with it if I could control them like Baron Spider from Ninja Gaiden 2.  I always hated that boss.

So you want to go catch one of those wasps?  From its wasp commune?

Well, no. Although i'm not one of these "experts". I would think they could catch one.

Must be tons of them flying around outside the house.

You know they're all girls, right?

I'd like to get a giant nest of ants and toss it in there with a remote camera just for added WTF-ness.

What? sonofa....

Despite their common names, as adults, crane flies do not prey on mosquitoes, nor do they bite humans. Some larval crane flies are predatory and may occasionally eat mosquito larvae.[3] Adult crane flies feed on nectar or they do not feed at all. Once they become adults, most crane fly species exist as adults only to mate and die.

Well, there went my grand plan.

Your killer wasp is a "cicada killer." They are solitary, or nest in small groups. They sting cicadas. They are not programmed to seek revenge on intruders.
 
2013-04-12 08:33:49 PM
If I was the first person to find that nest, I'd put some clothing near the nest so it would appear the nest was covering a dead person.  Some kid-size shoes with about a foot of pant leg on each would be perfect.  Put them close together and aimed into the nest.  Maybe a "big book of bugs" nearby.

Then let someone else discover the nest.

How many wasp experts can there be on the Canary Islands?  I wonder if it's just the local gardening club that knows about insect pests or something.

/I obviously know nothing about the Canary Islands.

You forgot the pigs blood. It is not a make believe killing zone without garments covered in pigs blood.

Probably all the local homeless and pets being carried into the house.  Or maybe the 120db steady hum of a million wings beating constantly.

Um, they are aggressive as hell around my place- lay claim to the whole yard. Sure, I've never been stung by one, but the third or fourth time one comes at me (bro), even if it's just bluffing, I have to end it.
