Now there's a guy who REALLY trusts his bee suit!

I want to see the guy that opened the door and discovered it that was not wearing any protection. I imagine he had about 3 seconds to make up his mind to run.

I had to cut one out of one of our outbuilding walls last year. Very similar, maybe a tad bigger. They have a ridiculously painful sting, beyond anything I can describe. The downside to eliminating them is they had wiped out the yellow jackets, wasps and bald-faced around my home. Now they are back with a vengeance and killed out three of my hives.
