Had two of those big suckers bouncing against the slider to my deck this morning while it was still dark out. I had to make the poor dogs stand outside until I was sure I could let them in without those monsters flying in.

Except the European Hornet isnt on there. I just saw my first couple againsst my slider two nights back. Go to 3:00 for some good idea as to what these are. WE generally ignore them, had a few that got in over the years, and I'll get them with a stick vacuum.

Yup. Very easy to mix a few of them up. My neighbor and I have a problem with cicada killers right now, ground nests everywhere. They're not bothersome to me, but the neighbor has a couple of small kids that are deathly afraid.
maybe that's what's been buzzing super low to the ground in my yard lately. They're kind of dark, very little yellow. I don't typically stick around on that side to get too close of a look :lol:

Round here in these parts we call them Horse Hornets. They are attracted to light at night. So porch lights, interior lights they can see through glass, etc. DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT get stung by one.

I think these are the phuckers that have drilled through my upstairs ceiling sometime since Saturday night. I killed 7 in my living room last night, one in my bedroom and two this morning in the living room again. I also got stung on my knee last night and it still hurts like a mofo. :burning:

I use a vacuum to suck bees up. Much easier than trying to swat them.

I was baffled last night where they were coming from and didn't think about the vacuum. I talked to my neighbor earlier and he said he'd come take a look. Hopefully he can spray some killer in the hole and cover it up. Being a shorty, I fear I'd fall over the stairs railing. The welt is bad enough.
