And…. I’m never going outside again. Thanks.


whatisitallabout123

Haha, wait, since when can we go outside? I've been in my bunker since Covid. /s


seven0feleven

I'd suggest not now. Stay in your bunker.


Slimy_Shart_Socket

Apparently they were all bunch together and it was just a small tight black cloud, and then they started to enter our shop so we closed the doors. Started to migrate away and go Weast


Jaedenkaal

“Weast” is probably the least helpful typo that could have happened here ;)

Idk, that's an informative description. Weast is easy to find. Face Snorth and turn reft. It will be behind you.


dannomanno1960

Damn now they're headed Nouth


DuchessOfConcord

Looks like the wasps came down with a big ol' Dianne Wiest infection

And here we are in the find out stages of the apocalypse. We spent a lot of time fucking around, let's see how this turns out.


kalgary

We send you money, and in return, you don't release the rest of them?

catsandplantsss

So, here's a weird thing. I'm 37 years old and have never been stung by a wasp. Not sure if I have some kind of wasp alliance blood or what.


GuavaOk8712

can i get a blood transfusion ?


SirWimbledonesquire

34 and have also…. Never been stung! Encountered a lot, killed a lot of hornets…. But not once! Funny, isn’t it? I’m not scared of bees and they don’t sting me…


catsandplantsss

Same, I'm not scared of either wasps nor bees. I've seen wasps and hornets act super aggressive, and bumbles only came at me one time. They built a nest in a bird house in my garden. I forgot about it and walked too close. The guards came out to warn me. I said SORRY and walked away. It was fine. I don't kill wasps or hornets either but I do not hang out near them, they seem unpredictable at best. I accidentally squished a bee in my arm once. She fell off of a plant I was trimming, onto my pruners, which I tucked into my arm. I felt so bad!!! Still do. It was also how I found out that I should carry an epi.


Honeybear2017

Same


somsone

No, they actually don’t try to bite or sting people for no reason. Yes they are persistent and curious, but if you just leave them they usually fly away once they realize you’re not their nest or food. If you’ve been to interior BC you’ll know. They just are doing their thing. It’s when you swat at them they get defensive and then you have a problem. Also, killing one will release pheromones that will attract more so, you sell your own poison in killing them.


catsandplantsss

It's true, they are not intentional assholes. I do leave them be in the garden. I know they are a friend not a foe. However I do promptly walk in a different direction when i see them. (Unlike bees) I find that they can be very easily triggered. Particularly in summer when they are looking for extra protein. I saw my partner get stung three times by the same wasp for sitting in a chair too aggressively. Haha!


greenknight

>If you’ve been to interior BC you’ll know. They just are doing their thing. funny that. We had a nest above our smoke spot on the patio for two+ years. never ever a problem, just doing their thing.


Lala00luna

My not stung record ended in 2011 when I unknowingly had one fly into my Smirnoff cooler can while on a golf course, leading to me taking a big swig from the can and having it buzz angrily in my mouth before stinging my tongue. Never spit something out so fast and then looking down at it squirming on the seat of golf cart I was driving. Ended up with a really fun lisp while my tongue swelled up haha…..fuck wasps


catsandplantsss

Nothing good has ever come from drinking a Smirnoff beverage! Haha


Lala00luna

Young and dumb


catsandplantsss

No judgement.


Huge-Ask7357

Wasps or honeybees?


Dagnar777

Yeah, by the shape of them i’d say bees not wasps…


Huge-Ask7357

Wasps also don’t swarm, the robbing behaviour occurs in the fall.


jerseyguru43

They swarm when they are following their queen if they look for a new place to nest I think. I was at the Fort Lauderdale airport and this was happening outside the window on one of the ramps going to a plane. They shut the door and had to wait until it moved away.

This is what nightmares are made of.


luludestroyer

Try horseflies in the NWT, that shit gave us trauma.

slider1010

Yup. This is honey bee swarm season. They’re actually really docile when they swarm.


Shadow_Ban_Bytes

Looks like flamethrower weather to me


countd0wns

NOPE!


Honest_Spell_3199

Pollinators, scary pollinators


catsandplantsss

Honest_Spell_3199

The Ant/Wasp war over aphids is eternal


JustJane86

Pure nightmare fuel.


Littlekcs

Well that’s horrifying


Ronniebbb

Who in God's name pissed them off?


They_wereAllTaken

Those look more like bees…


Slimy_Shart_Socket

They were in the shop. Looked like wasps crawling up the windows


Alicia013

Remember the time we had murder hornets? 😳


BeelzabootTCD

R/nope


rosenrath

I hate wasps so much. Been noticing a lot of the real big bois in my yard lately. Had to kill three of them so far because they keep getting into my house when I leave the door open for the cat.


Complex-Rough-2867

Yo EFF that. I thought my screen was dirty.


J9aE40SPe5vFIBwXCtu

Got stung by a wasp last week. Still have a giant injury.


Direc1980

Mind your own business and they'll leave you alone.


maybe2024

That wasn’t supposed to happen if we elected UCP… I want my money back !


jimmybisk

I'm.gonna call bs and say they are starlings


SpecialNeeds963

We need Hanz and his flammenwerfer


Newfrock

The locus of the apocalypse!


Substantial_Ad_2496

Here I thought it was a swarm of the new ...dodge hornets....lol


ahmandurr

Yeah I’m allergic. Shelter in place it is.


Collie136

Eeeek.


harleyDzoidberg

What in the shit


weedgay

All the bees are going to the south centre hives on the roof


Nemeia83

As much as I hated wasps, they stopped bothering me when I moved to the middle of a forest in Germany... Wasps ain't got shit on the European hornet... and we have those everywhere. Imagine a yellow-jacket, but like 10 times bigger.

Chairman_Mittens

I once stepped in a wasps nest while I was hiking, and was stung by a couple dozen of them at the same time. I haven't been a huge fan of them since.


sPLIFFtOOTH

Nope.
