#nature funny Wasps, killer bees

THE WASP FROM HELL.

I had a battle with a wasp this morning. It was that big I was like a lion tamer with a chair and a whip. It must have been some sort of mutated freak of nature. Big as an american football, a stinger that would kill a giraffe and fangs as sharp as needles!

I walked into the bedroom and heard a buzz. Not a little buzz, more of a chainsaw sound, high pitched, aggressive. The damn thing flew straight at me and I automatically jumped. Well when I say jumped I ended up on top of the wardrobe, cowering. The killer wasp turned and for a second we were eye to eye, fear gripped me as it launched itself again. Terrified, I dived and rolled off the bed like a stunt double and quickly grabbed a cup and unopened letter. It suddenly decided to land on the window and I that was my moment, the one and only chance. My legs sprang up and I expertly tried to cup the beast. It made a noise that chilled me to the bone, like a buzzy scream of rage. It was that strong it made the mug jump! Luckily I then had the opportunity to put the letter underneath, trapping the flying horror. Somehow I managed to get it to the open window and let it escape. It flew off but incredibly turned to come back in. I was like lightening, slamming the window shut. It angrily banged it’s ugly head against the glass then disappeared, probably looking for a new victim.

Alright, I may have over exaggerated a tiny bit…… It wasn’t as big as that but it did scare the crap out of me!

OH what a HORRIFYING experience!!! I’m sure it must have taken you hours to recover! And Vinny? I think you’d make an excellent writer of fiction! 😄 While I love most all insects, especially bees, I am not a fan of either wasps or hornets, for they are just downright mean. I have a bumblebee friend who I talk to in the mornings when I go out to water the flowers, and occasionally he perches on my nose while we chat. But I’d never get that close to a wasp. You were a brave man!

You have a bee on your nose?!? That’s like a horror movie to me! What if it stings you and your nose comes up like Jimmy Durante’s?! I’ve been stung a few times by wasps and the pain is a killer.

A bumblebee, Vinny … calm down … bumblebees are all but harmless and will almost never sting unless you threaten them. I remember one time decades ago I used to hang our sheets outdoors on the clothesline to dry. Well, one night I had put fresh sheets on the bed when all of a sudden my then-husband began screaming … and then I felt it … sting after sting! A group of wasps had nested in the fitted sheet and once we went to bed, they decided it was dinner time! Yes, that pain was a killer!
