    How long would you say these fuckers are from stem to stern? Looks kinda European Hornet-ish (but they are big bastards) from the pics. If they are an inch or more in length, fuck that shit, pay somebody. They are badass as all hell.

    Another "introduced species", that always works out well. wtf were they thinking is what I wonder. "We're not terrified enough in this new land, let's get some hornets up in here."

    Wasps
    Depending on their nest location, most of the techniques described above wonít work. Sometimes they have multiple entrances and often then entrances go down and around corners, etc.

    Iíve found that you have to dig until you find the heart of the nest and then crush it and drown with pesticide. Googles, hood, gloves, jacket, long thick pants, and boots recommended.

    If they’re really huge, like more than an inch long, make sure they’re not a cicada killer before you go all fucking nuclear on them. Those fuckers don’t hurt nothing but cicadas.

    Are they this huge? They look like this? Are they flying around and trying to fight you? Or are they just going in and out of a hole like they live there and they get some business going on. The cicada killers want to fucking kick your ass for being in their neighborhood. Even though ain’t got no damn stingers.

    Believe me, I know my shit. I am not a dental entomologist.. I am at entomologist who specializes in entomology dentistry. The work ain’t easy and my tool kit is admittedly small.... However I do get Wednesdays and powder days off in addition to my weekends. So I got that going for me.

    Cicada killers absolutely do have stingers, and use them to paralyze their prey. The are not aggressive towards people. I've seen one of those bad asses pound a cicada to the ground, sting it relentlessly then pick it up and fly away with the caucus three times the size of the wasp itself. Fucking cool as shit to see.

    Never been bothered by one, but I wouldn't want accidentally sit on or fall on their nest. Ground bees though, those things are totally harmless.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Not cicada killers and I’d say similar sized to if anything slightly bigger than a normal bee.

    Not fuzzy like the bee pics.

    One neighbor alsready scoped me trying to check these f’ers out and yelled, “you got bees there!?!” I said no, wasps without even knowing at the time to keep him moving.

    The underground diagram is a little disheartening for my action plan. I’m weary of blowing much up as I live in the city and there’s gas lines n shit. Molten aluminum sounds fun.

    Somewhere on this website is a tale of my, well, actually my dog’s, last run in with a skunk. No fucking thanks.

    We got an entomologist in the hizzouse. Noted.

    Yeah the Cicada killers are pretty distinctive and they put on a show but you can tell their heart's not in it. European Hornets, on the other hand....RUN!!!

    I've been on like a 20-year mission against fucking Carpenter Bees, the males don't sting but they act all badass, but the morons give away the location of their wimmin, so thanks I guess.

    I wouldn't give a fuck about them but they're trying to eat my house. So, die. Permethrin in the holes. I've gotten so i kinda enjoy the buzzing after you puff the powder up in the burrow (the burrow's in my siding) and the way the female comes out of the burrow all dusted up with the Permethrin powder and proceeds to die, noisily.

    It's probably not for everyone.

    I had an underground bee nest once and I put a corn hole board over it for a few days and blocked all the light, they moved away.

    Forgot where I read to do that but it seemed to work

    Depends what’s on em I guess. Back in college, in the ancestral city of cornhole’s birth, I made a pair of my own boards. Not a weekend seemed to pass where you didn’t drink and play yourself silly.

    It’s ok. I’m long done with that chapter in my life.

    The cornhole that is.

    There's definitely shit on them. Whatever it is, turned black at some point. Or maybe it was black.

    But yeah there's some shit of undetermined origin on there for sure.

    PM me your addy. Please.

    Have you seen his credentials? Until then he's just another guy pretending to be an entomologist. Happens all the time.

    Cornhole circa 1997 was in its infancy and us pretentious college kid east-siders in Cincinnati stole it from our heathen Price Hill west-side brethren who curated the game. It was revolutionary when it came to bbq drinking activities, much less backyard sport.

    Ice, my boards were adorned with the crosstown rival logos of the UC "paw" and X. I'm not sure boards with poo of unknown provenance are what my life needs right now, much less the game as-is.

    I'll send my info if my needs change. Thank you.
