Yellow Jackets Jackasses

Yellow jackets act impulsively, make poor decisions and fail to plan ahead. Supposedly when they sting you, they are following their natural instinct to protect their home. But once they sting and draw attention to themselves, what happens to their nice comfy home? Somebody blows it to smithereens, that’s what.

    Yeah. Nasty suckers. They like to make their nests in the ground out by us. They you ride by and step on one and voila, a tornado sh*t storm of angry bees and fleeing horses. I give them this though, they are effective in their ability to get you the heck away from their hive in a hurry.

      Oh, that’s terrible! You must have been stung multiple times. Even one hurts like a mother. I was stung last week and ran far away and was chased. Fortunately, truly allergic reactions – where you feel a bodily response other than at the site of the sting and can have your breathing impacted – are said to be rare. I hope you’re doing okay.

        Yes I am. I trip to the emergency walk-in center and 48 hours later I was feeling good. The injection site still itches and it happened last Sunday. Yes, I ran for my life. I blow up and itch but it hasn’t affected my breathing. Miserable but not life threatening.

    Coming from someone that has been bitten twice in the last month – and coming from someone who now has a family and dog who are scared to go out into our own backyard – I completely don’t understand these type of critters. Don’t they also die when they sting? I think I heard that somewhere and I’m too lazy to do real research -but if they do then they are the ultimate stupid creatures.

      [Steps forward, clears throat] You’re in luck, I already looked into it. Honey bees die when they’re stung as leaving the stinger in you evidently rips them apart. (Gross!) Yellow jackets, oh no. They sting to their shitty little hearts’ delight. I do not blame your dog or your family. Once stung, long time scared.
