WTF would you do about this? by FantasyStock WTF would you do about this? by FantasyStock
...:omg: These are yellow jacket wasps, and I just found them nesting in the little door where the truck is fueled.

Yes, yes, it's stock, unrestricted, use it for whatever, just tell me about it and credit me with a link back. (More stock here.) Policies in my journal.

But I digress...


WFT would you do about this??? I would feel terrible to poison them, but I've been stung repeatedly by a single one of these before. They're aggressive. And question #2: Is it totally crazy that I'm considering going outside to try to get better stock photos of them?? (I'd need to get a LOT closer.)

I say we take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Don a bee suit, plant fireworks in their nest, and run as far and as fast as you can. They will be pissed off. They will chase you.

Pretty colouring, but I wouldn't want to approach that nest either! What did you do in the end?

What are they nesting on? Seems like a gas pump. I used to live near bugs like those and they always wanted to go inside my house, but they got pissed off when they actually got inside.

Scary!

1:4 mix of soapy/detergent water might neutralize them with out poison.

I wouldn't try to take a close-up of these guys...

pretty sure I'd start crying. I'm allergic and any time I see these I kind of panic T_T. Please be careful!

Thanks! I panic too, but I'm trying to be cool about it. I got stung once before by a yellow jacket. It flew into my root beer bottle, and I didn't realize until the thing was in my mouth, stinging me again and again and again... If just one can do THAT much hurt to a person, I don't want to piss off a whole family of them!
