Man Fails At Properly Removing Hornets Nest
If you're going to take down a hornet's nest, make sure you're a fast runner... and don't forget to leave the door unlocked!
A man found a nest of hornets in the crown of one of the trees in his front yard. Now, the hornets weren’t doing anything really and the cells were full of larvae. Naturally, man needs to show off his manly side, so what can he do to come out more macho? That’s right, he takes a long wooden stick and takes a swing at the nest!
It is like a scene from one of those old cartoons. The same instant he swung at the tree, the adult hornets swung after him. You can run, but you cannot hide from their wrath, big boy! It might be your first instinct, but those things can fly up to 30 miles per hour, and that is not your best result. Even the guy recording the entire stunt can be heard saying: “Idiot!” Because an idiot he surely is.
In case you ever come across a hornet's nest on your own property, there are a few steps you can take to make it easier and safer for you. If it’s in the early months of development, say some time after winter and the nest is smaller than a tennis ball, you can use something tough and heavy to smash it, like a brick.
If it’s much later, when the nest is much larger and the workers are inhabiting it, take a red light and a hornet jet spray that can spray at a longer distance (make sure it is labeled ‘jet spray’) and wait until it is about 9 or 10 PM, when the workers are asleep. Spray directly at the hornets’ hole and at least for some ten second, for successful removal.
