You'd think white people would be easy to pick out in China.

"Wasps are common in the country in autumn but most people lack sufficient awareness to avoid them, which poses great potential danger, he said."

Alright, is there something about living in China that makes all common sense vanish? One of the very first things you learn as a kid is don't go near the wasps. Wasps aren't stealthy creatures and wasp nests are actually pretty loud.

I just have this image of China being like the US 80 years ago where they had to have PSAs not to wash your clothes in gasoline or shake your baby.

I was wondering the same thing. "Let's see, of the last nine people who went into that cave, six died from wasp bites. I like those odds, let's roll. That bird's nest soup isn't going to collect itself."

The scary thing is, this being the Chinese government we're talking about, that's just how they might decide to deal with the problem. Or just have a plane fly over and drop a fuel-air explosive.

You wonder what kind of biohazard mutant wasps they can grow in China given all the industrial pollution and crap in the water/air/ground.

I smell a SyFy movie.

I wash my fully clothed baby in gasoline and then shake it dry.  Never had any problems.

Wasp women vs Mansquito?

Because People in power are Stupid: European Honeybees vs Asian Giant Hornet


One defense bees use is to swarm around the hornets. As many as they can and raise the internal temp of the hive and that eventually kills them.  But not before many gungans die.

I learned about these farkers when I lived in Japan.  Imagine becoming aware of their existence for the first time by seeing one in person.

Yeah. It's the stuff of nightmares.

I've only had honeybee hives for 2 years now, but, wow, wasps are assholes.  Hornets, yellowjackets, and even those flies and beetles who took on horizontal stripes on the abdomen as a defensive marking.  Seriously, I spend about 100 bucks per hive per year, and then these other flying insects mimic my girls and give them a bad name.

The flying black & yellow bugs in your soda, or attacking you at the soda machine?  Not bees.  Certainly not honeybees.  I worked 7 hives today without any gear or smoke, and the most I saw was ONE guard bee chasing me for 20 feet or so after I gave her hive a gallon of sugar-water.

Bees are extremely docile by nature.  I get seriously pissed when I see people swat them.

Hornets, OTOH... No mercy.

Yeah, I leave honey/bumble bees alone.  I apparently had a small amount of carpenter bees eating my deck that I thought were bumble bees for awhile until I figured it out.  Those bees have to go, unforunately.

The hornets making nests all around my house...If I could make them feel pain before they die, good.  I'll never forget one of those farkers getting into my GFs shirt and stinging her like 4 times as she was carrying groceries.

/FYI: Spraying them with bleach-based cleaners doesn't kill them quickly, but they do die after about a minute on the ground

Bees are fine.  Even some wasps - the paper wasps I've got on my property never give me any issues.  In fact I accidentally had my hand about an inch from one of their nests while doing some maintenance and they did nothing but pop out their heads and look at me (which is how I found the nest).

Yellowjackets, now, hate the farkers.  They can all die in a raging inferno.
