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]
ZAZ: HairBolus: The big problem is that news sites just copy the same story and pass it along.I have often suggested Fark needs a submission filter that scans a submission of a Gawker group page, finds the real story linked within, and substitutes that link.
ZAZ: 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.
UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: 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.
Ronin_S: lousyskater: [i.imgur.com image 780x506]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.
BenJammin: Throw a stick of dynamite at it.
Mister Peejay: Galileo's Daughter: The article states that authorities could not locate the homeowner. He's probably in the nest.[www.feoamante.com image 301x225]

tgambitg: I've never run into a wasp that didn't survive a quick shot with this:[www.zepindustries.eu image 342x475]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.
studebaker hoch: 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.
orclover: KangTheMad: My question is, what made the neighbors concerned over the house?Probably all the local homeless and pets being carried into the house. Or maybe the 120db steady hum of a million wings beating constantly.
Gilligann: 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?
skinink: 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.
