August 27th, 2014: Catching some ZZZZZZZs

Where's that PillowLover chap when you need him?

A woman found this enormous wasps nest in her unused spare room. They had eaten through the pillow and mattress. The blanket was saved, though.....

Geez. I walk around in my house in the dark.

"Honey, would you please grab the comforter off the bed in the spare bedroom."

How do they know they are WASPS? Some could be Jewish. :-)



monster  Thursday Aug 28 08:54 AM

Same way you do--by the appearance of their stingers.

Not to pick on Spuck, but I find the flashing emoticon, what ever it is supposed to mean, annoying in the extreme, mainly because it has an auditory effect somewhere deep in my computer.
I am surprised to find wordplay on WASP in regard to English wasps. Isn't that an American term?
Does anyone have an idea as to what kind of wasps those are?

Well, that's weird.

Well yes, WASP is an American term, but this board is international and known for thread-drift.... and I rarely hear the term wasp used here (in Midwestern USA) to describe the yellow and black stinging insects. they call everything answering that description a bee. Occasionally a hornet. But mostly bees. *shrug* I gave up on that years ago.

Really? Down here everyone knows the difference between a bee and a wasp. Bees make kids squeal and parents launch into the "leave it alone and it will leave you alone" speech.

Wasps make everyone leap up, gather their most treasured possessions, say a hail Mary, and toss a Molotov cocktail over their shoulder as they run screaming for the hills.


That picture makes me nauseous. Wasps are evil incarnate.

yeah, I suspected it was regional. here they call everything a bee and then run like shit because you can't kill it -won't you please think of the apple crops- but it's gonna sting you to hell and back if you stay......

Sundae  Saturday Aug 30 10:26 AM

I may be the only person in the whole who doesn't mind wasps.
Okay, exaggeration (please please let me be special and unique! please)

But the first time I was stung I was in bed and didn't know about it until the morning when the big fat wasp fell out of my bed. It was nowhere near as bad as an ant bite. I've never worried about being stung since.

I'm not saying I'd sleep in that bed though. I'm crazy, not stupid.



infinite monkey  Saturday Aug 30 10:28 PM

I think of wasps as those longer things with hangy-downy legs, when they fly. They can sting over and over. A bee stings you, it be dead. I've been stung by many a bee but I've never been stung by a wasp. And they build nests around here. Knock on wood.

I looked up wasp images in google images, and I had to go to 'mud dauber' to find the pic of what I'm talking about. I guess what I think of as wasps are those. They build those flute-like nests. Or some woodwind instrument. That creeps me out the most, and there are tons of them around here. Things with holes creep me out. I found out from an article in Scientific American Mind (the only magazine I buy off rack) that's actually a 'thing'...like holey ceiling tiles and stuff...can't stand that. http://www.scientificamerican.com/ar...raid-of-holes/



monster  Saturday Aug 30 10:52 PM

That thing looks ready to run in the Special Olympics.

(am I going to hell now?)



infinite monkey  Saturday Aug 30 10:57 PM

If 'special' means 'making me laugh' then yes, yes you are going to hell.



Pamela  Sunday Aug 31 02:50 AM

I hate those mud daubers. I had one bild a nest right on the shaft of the heater blower in my camper and I didn't know it until the winter got cold enough to freeze the water pipes and drop the power lines, thus rendering my house unliveable. I retreated to my camper, flipped on the heat and zap, fuse blown. I replaced the fuse and promptly blew it again. Several hours of exploration and some salty language later, I got the heater unit out and disassembled enough to find said mud nest jamming the motor. I was not happy, but did get the unit going again once I reassembled it and got it back into it's home. Little bastards!
