"The hornets caused the deaths of six people in France through anaphylactic shock."

Oh, so they're deadly in the same way that every other bee or wasp in existence is deadly.

Still scary looking farkers.

The scary thing is that these farkers are appearing at 50 degrees north.

They normally stay places where it's warm for more than a couple of days a year.

Why is it that every deadlier, more invasive species of insect, fish, plant, or reptile, is from Africa or Asia? Australia has some killer species, too, but at least they don't invade like the damn Asian and African species.

From what I understand, these are significantly more aggressive, and hit a hell of a lot harder when they sting.
Or is that the joke.

Either way.  fark these things.  Bees are fine in my book, they make delicious honey.  Hornets and wasps serve no purpose.  Unless the military starts using them as subjects for testing the tracking systems of tiny missile turrets.

Funny, but no.  Come to Georgia and encounter one of these irrationally aggressive motherfarkers.I have a 2mm scar from a single sting THREE YEARS AGO and I'm not allergic to them.  They come after you if you're simply 6 feet away from a nest.

The two best hornet / wast killers that I have used are,
1. A 500.000 BTU propane torch.
2. Food Grade silicone spray.
The silicone spray is the one that surprised me as soon as the bug was hit with the stream of silicone they dropped dead.
There was a couple of Bald Faced hornets near my shop bench at work and I grabbed the nearest spray can and shot a stream at the hornets. Dead right there and I mean right there.
The silicone does not work as a repellent you have to hit the bug with the stream.
The propane torch was more fun.

Paper wasp?  When I was a kid, in the course of destroying a nest with my friends, I got stung twice on the left hand, once between the ring and middle finger, other on the palm.  It was a couple days before I could use my hand properly again.

Silicone spray usually uses a flammable propellant. I've heard.

Got stung by hornets or wasps in Louisiana back when I was about three or four. I almost died. Not a CSB.

Of course it was so long ago (1969 or 1970?) that I only have the vaguest recollection of it. Mostly I remember my folks telling the story of how we'd gone to visit one of my Dad's cousins, and the guy had a bunch of beehives on his farm, and how the bees always left everyone alone, but it was the damned wasps or hornets (they were never very clear on which one it was, and I was too young to know or care about the difference) that got me.

Actually hornets and wasps are pollinators, so they do serve a purpose.

I know.  I just don't care.  That's not enough.  If you, as a species, want to be a douchewaffle 24/7, I'm gonna need more than that.

Same. I was stung over 100 times when I was a kid helping tear down a small shed. I was nearly croaked in the hospital at the time, but I found out that my dad was freaked enough that he went back out, saturated and froze most of it with the liquid hose from a bulk propane tank, then tossed his zippo into it.

I wait until twilight, when they are all back at the nest, then I zap them with this:

It has a pretty powerful stream, capable of knocking these little f*ckers out of the air. Once they're hit, they die quick, writhing on the ground, unable to fly because their wings are soaked in lovely, lovely poison. Sorry to be so sanguine, but I really hate these little f*ckers. I usually stomp on the little bastards to hasten their demise.

Bees, wasps, and hornets all have distributed breathing systems, in which they take in oxygen from what amount to various air intake ports all over their bodies. The bigger they are, the harder it is for them to get enough oxygen.

The silicon spray would clog all of those breathing holes at once, and the hornet would immediately suffocate. Any paint, lubricant, or other coating spray would do the same thing, even Pam.

I've often considered bringing some hydrofluoric acid home from work and using a pressurized spray bottle to kill them.  But I think that would probably damage my house.

I've been killing ants and aphids in my garden lately with a mixture of water and Murphy's Oil Soap. I've been told it's safer than insecticides, and it certainly does the job, clogging the breathing tubes and suffocating them. I've not tried it on anything larger, nor would I want to try it on hornets or wasps: those f*ckers get the big guns.

That was at 8 am and it still hurts like hell. Only now it's starting to itch as well. Benadryl isn't touching it.

When my wife was a kid, they had ground hornets.  Her dad called up the university and they said to pour gasoline down the hole (at night).

No one said they shouldn't then light the gasoline.
