It's great fun and i highly recommend it to everybody.

Except not.


The nest:
Basketball sized, right in the middle of the yard, right next to my bamboo, at a six to six and a half foot altitude.

The plan:
0) Wait for 11pm when it's dark and they are sleeping.

1) Spray expando sticky foam stuff into the one nest enterance.

2) Get on ladder, grab branch, break branch, stuff nest into double trash bags.

3) Hose self off to remove wasps, stuff bag in freezer to kill wasps.

4) Get in shower, remove anti-wasp gear with water running full blast in case of ninja-wasps.

5) Party.


The Operation:
0: Waiting to do something of questionable intelligence is fun, right?

1: Went almost as well, sealed the nest nicely.

2: Not so much. Branch broke, branch slipped out of hand, nest fell six feet and broke open, plus it's rather hard to get a Y shaped branch and nest into a trashbag without ripping it, and just as hard to close off the top properly (no drawstrings)

3: Took a bit, had to hose bag off twice, had to change doors to do it in front of as wasps followed me to the light.

4: Hard to get helmet off, found a ninja-wasp drowned in tub, sent it down the garbage disposal unit.

5: Finished at midnight, and had entirely too much adrenilin in me to sleep any time soon.

Number of times stung: 0


The key is Teh Super Anti-wasp Suit of Doom.
Which i have pictures of, i should be able to get them out of the camera tonight.

i just had to eliminate a huge hive of bees from my chimney. Why must bees make their home in my chimney... ? A good roaring fire sent them all packing.

lol i bet! Good thing they went packing in an upward direction!


I was going to take a few shots before executing my plan, till i realized the local store had close and i'd be driving 15 minutes each way...

Haven't opened the freezer or checked the previous location of the nest today, i'll do both tonight, give 'em a solid 18 hours in the freezer :P

LMAO! Sounds like your experience may be the last one. Same as the one I had with a large nest. :) Those little fuckers are serious.

Now thats some Pissy Bees! I used to throw rocks at them as a kid. Later upgraded to slingshots. It was a game to wait until someone walked up on it because they couldn't throw too well/were fkn stupid & smash the shit out of it so they get stung. I grew up around some totally fkd people :).
My friends dad got bit a week later by some bees in the pocket of the raincoat his son had on during a late night in-ground nest torture session. There is some agency you can call that freezes the nest & puts it in a bag. I don't know who handles that but it never crossed my mind to do it myself.
Pskov, too radge.

Last summer I worked at a wildlife place. It sucked. I had to clear trails and do all their manual labor. I fucking hate the wildlife now.

Anywways, I was clearing some brush when all the sudden I feel a sting on my hamstring. Then another. Then another. Then 15 more. Turns out about like 15 wasps had flown up my jean leg and started stinging me like maddddd.

Wasps & bees & Yellow Jackets = Bad.

Well 'sky. At least you had a plan of action that was well enough executed..lol..the nest is gone! That's better than when I told my brother in law to go spray it with the hose...and he did it!!!:lol: He now knows the meaning of the word B-line. They went straight at him :eusa_doh:

I tried the spray foam stuff on a yellowjacket nest underground got stung numerous times. Must have had another exit somewhere else. Good job that was like ten times as difficult as what I tried and you were much more successful than I was.

Presto, pictures!
Note the scale marking on the nest, it's rough (based on a yellow jacket being half an inch long, which is generally true), but gives you a good idea of size.


EDIT:
I am very glad this was an airborn nest, i've heard nothing but horrer stories about subterranian nests.

Wow, man, THIS is a great thread! That story was priceless. REALLY fun to read. I am absolutely loving your "wasp nest whacking Tek!!!"

The pictures are just the bomb diggety icing on the cake, though. That wasp fighting outfit...dude, that is friggin' top notch! It would make a kick ass Halloween costume!

But Dial8 beat me to referencing the fencing mask. Stroke 'o genius, to use that, by the way...
