I remember reading about those suits last summer -- they bought some random shiat they found on Amazon that looked like it might work, and they kept their fingers crossed that it would.

Outside of hiring NASA or some corporation to design them a customized suit for a few million $, that would be my strategy as well.

Maybe pick up a tennis racket as well.

Thing that scares me about the story is the possibility that they juuuuust manage to eradicate all of them, but the last nest's on some land controlled by a Bundyite nutjob who thinks tEh cOnStiTuTi0n AiN't sAy nUtTiN b0uT n0 eNtOm0LoGiStS, doesn't permit them anywhere near the nest ... and it all spirals out of control from there.

I'm not discussing this because I hate calling them 'murder hornets'

Glad to see the authorities are giving them a more-than-fair 20 seconds to hide, before they start seeking.

Watched this over the weekend. Pretty interesting. Kind of cool how the public jumped on the grenade and were a huge part of finding them. Also watching them try & attach trackers to captured wasp with out hurting them was strangely cool.

You listed a lot of things I've been around that are much less worrisome, both from a "will they hurt me" and environmental perspective, than japanese hornets.

When I was in el paso I played with tarantulas bare handed (I advise gloves, in case they shed). I slapped the first hawk I saw because I thought it sting my buddy. It shook itself off, gave me the stink eye and landed right back near us. Every one I encountered was passive.

fark black widows and rattlesnakes. Never saw the former. Got lucky not getting bit by the latter.
