This thread is hilarious. Full of pants-shiatting pussies.

Wasps get into my home every day during summer.  I trap them in a plastic bowl and release them outside.  They run for their lives.

tgambitg: I've never run into a wasp that didn't survive a quick shot with this:

Something in there makes their exoskeleton become an endoskeleton really fast. Like, drop out of the air dead fast. They don't even have time to react.

fark wasps. I go all biological warfare on them.


Or starting fluid & a Bic lighter. Then there's that old call the fire department thing though.

CSB time,

So one January my brother goes for a hike in the woods and finds a hornets nest.  He thinks it looks cool and decides to bring it home.  He takes it to his bedroom and shuts the door before coming to dinner.  About an hour or so goes by and he goes back to his room to find it full of pissed off hornets.

Dad had to shut off the furnace and remove the window, from the outside of the house, and wait for them to go back into the nest.  It took about an hour or so for them to do so.

Once the stingy bastards are back in the nest, said nest is taken out to the yard, doused with gasoline and set ablaze.

Did I mention my bro was diagnosed with schizophrenia?

Good times.

HairBolus: A minor amount of googling turns up that they sprayed poision and killed them all, and that the "wasps" were African killer bees (Apis mellifera and Apis dorsata adansonii)

[www.gomeranoticias.com image 600x338]


I do believe that'd be Apis dorsata and Apis mellifera adansonii. The former is the giant honey bee; the latter is an African species of the western honey bee.

Neither is the so-called "killer" bee, which is actually a hybrid of European species of Apis mellifera bred with  Apis mellifera scutellata.

The Managing Editor at the first newspaper I worked for lived out in the country. On his porch was his grandfather's recliner, because he had a tiny house, and no room for it inside. It sat there for about five years, and a bee colony established itself inside it. He didn't care, so it thrived.

One warm (for late February) day, he decided to see if the bees had survived the Winter, so he took a broom and from the safety of his door, gave the chair a big WHACK! and ducked back behind his screen door. Dust and a few drowsy bees came out, flew around a bit, and went back inside. About three hours later, he decided to go to town to do his laundry. He walked out with his laundry basket on his head, and they were waiting for him. They chased him a quarter-mile to the neighbor's house, and he got stung over a hundred times. He looked like the Pillsbury Dough Boy. He went to the hospital, and from there, he called a beekeeper, and the guy opened the back of the recliner and there was 65,000 bees and almost 40 pounds of honeycomb.

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




Ants evolved from wasps.

Sounds like Africanized Killer Bees. They will literally sit there waiting for you to fark up so they can ruin your shiat while you aren't looking. And when you run, they will follow you for ~2 miles just because.

They're Al Pacino in Taxi Driver.

Back when I was working for a summer camp, the boss brought us an article about a guy who had ran over a nest with a tractor. They chased him so he jumped in the pool. He got stung hundreds of times on his face because the swarm just hung out over the water waiting for him to come up. Eventually someone saw what was going on and called the local fire and rescue who took a high powered hose to the swarm. Even the fire fighters got stung up pretty good, but everyone made it out okay.

It was excellent! He gave everyone at the newspaper a piece of comb (small newspaper), and he healed up nicely, but kinda lumpy there, for a while.

Good call, but this was Northern California, in the early '80s so they hadn't migrated that far yet. They're trying to establish themselves there now, but so far the Winters have stymied them (this is the mountainous Oregon/California border).

About your story about the guy on the tractor, my step dad had that happen to him. He was plowing our little six acre field next to our house, and hit a nest. He ran for the house (my sister heard him coming, and held the door for him, and slammed it behind) and only got stung four times, because he always wore long sleeves and a hat. But we had to get another tractor to pull his out, because he just abandoned ship, and it ended up in the creek. I had never seen him run before; I can vouch for him, he had some wheels! Not bad for a fifty-year-old.

When I was stationed in Hawaii, at Barber's Point NAS, we were scheduled to fly my Chinook helicopter to Maui on a routine flight, but we had to cancel because a swarm of bees had migrated onto a large red, wheeled fire extinguisher that was positioned between our aircraft and the next. No way we were gonna start that helicopter. The base called a beekeeper, and he got 80,000 free bees.

What's worse than a wasp?

How about a 5-foot-tall queen wasp that shoots its babies at you like a living gatling gun?

We get wasps nests this big all the time, usually on a vacant lot somewhere.  Last year it was between an old dumpster and an abandoned school building.

They build some nice 3x2' nests in my 3rd story attic from time to time.  Very easy to resolve.  Get an electric leaf blower, attach the leaf suction adapter, duct tape 20' of plastic drain pipe to it.  Fire up the blower, put the end of the drain pipe on the entry hole in the wall where the wasps go in and out and gently bang it on the wall.  All of the wasps will come out and be turned into bee mulch.  Do make sure to point the end of the blower away from you.

Next day, repeat the process.  You'll get everyone who was out the day before, reassigned to nest protection.

Now reverse the drain pipe, putting it on the blower end.  Turn the leaf blower upside down (leaf sucker adapter still in place), put the end of the drain pipe where the entry hole is and turn it on, and dump a cup of sevin-5 insecticidal powder in it.  Turn off the blower and try to avoid the cloud of dust from landing on you.  You just fired a fair amount of powder into the entry, and any wasp coming or going will collect it on their wings and legs.  Eventually the nest will die off from the accumulated insecticide.  In the winter, go into the attic and remove the nest.

I wish I'd invented this, but this is how they remove unwanted bee nests and a guy took one out of my neighbors tree years ago, which gave me the idea.  He had a low speed vacuum with a long pipe and a clear box they got suctioned into, where the majority survived and he was able to sell them to someone who wanted bees.  The cool part is during the swirl down the hose they get sick and puke up their nectar and whatnot all over the inside of the clear plastic box.
