aseras: Repo Man: Oldiron_79: Repo Man: Japanese honey bees have evolved a fascinating defense against Asian giant wasps. I'm very glad that we do not have these in the US. In another documentary I watched about them, the entomologist said that he was stung by one when he was a boy. He said it felt like a white hot nail being driven into his leg.Actually I have seen the giant asian hornets in US.I hope you are mistaken, because they would be a nasty exotic species to have here in the US. But if true, it would be an old story too often repeated.Definitely have them in Florida. I find them all the time. Hard to miss a 2-3 inch long hornet drowned in your pool.
Frantic Freddie: phamwaa: Frantic Freddie: Shiat like that makes me glad to live in the high desert, not many bugs.Yeah. About that:[photographyheat.com image 650x433][25.media.tumblr.com image 500x375]In 18 years of living in this area (most of my life in the southwest) I've never seen a scorpion. Being at 7000 feet might be the reason.A Child of the Earth, a large bug, but very rarely seen & completely harmless to humans.Now centipedes.....I've found they disintegrate quite nicely with a CCI shotshell from a 10/22 at close range.
Z1P2: A yellow jacket is not a type of bee, it is a type of hornet. Yellow jackets kill bees easily. What this guy did was he likely sprayed the yellow jacket nest with a chemical he's using off-label hence the secrecy since when it comes to pesticides the label is the law.
dave2198: tenpoundsofcheese: Subby, a yellow jacket is a description for a type of bee.He didn't train bees to attack a yellow jacket. It seems you meant to say he trained them to attack a yellow jacket NEST.A yellow jacket is NOT the same as a yellow jacket NEST which is the object that was destroyed.I have to say, I'm not exactly shocked to find out that you're wrong about more than just politics."Yellow jacket is the common name in North America for predatory wasps of the genera Vespula and Dolichovespula."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellowjacket
Repo Man: Have you considered taking a specimen to an entomologist? If these things are in the US, it ought to be made official, so people could be warned.
