If you were attacked by killer wasps what would you do???
Nothing like being chased by a cubic yard of angry hornets. Put as much distance between you and the wasps as quick as you can. If you approach or
disturb their nest you will be attacked. The farther from the nest you get the less their defensive response will be.
We have yellow jackets here and used to mess with them as kids (i know). But a dare is a dare. Sure we got stung but knew to run away. About 100 yards
and we could stop. Only the most stubborn wasp would go that far to defend their nest. The ones that crawl up your shirt sleeve or down your collar
were the exception. They would sometimes wait to bite you after you got home. A yellow jacket bite in the armpit by those meat shearing mandibles is
The worst case scenario I ever heard of when I was growing up was a boy and his dog were killed. They got too close to a nest and ran when they were
attacked. The dog went around one side of a bush and the kid the other. The leash was strapped to the boys wrist by his mother so the dog could not
get away from him. As they panicked they continued to run around the bush until they were hopelessly tangled. The wasps never relented.
So get some distance, now
. Don't swat, don't think, don't hesitate. Pick a direction and move it
