Bush hogging today deer plots andTW trails How would you like to bump into that dude on the TW
Maybe a dumb question, but did the dog live? Lol. I have no experience with a nest that size.I used to come across their nests while working in the mountains on hydro dams. The first scouts will kamakazi you in the head without stinging you. Feels like an acorn was dropped onto your head. After 2 or 3, you get the idea they are hornets and look for the nest. The nest will have another 2 or 3 staked out on the outside. If you leave, no worries. If you stay, more come out and cover the nest. Move closer and they'll start to attack. Throw a rock or your coffee mug at it and they will swarm! Trust on this one, you do not want them to swarm! In my case, I went back to my truck, drove it to the nest and then threw my mug at it, diving back into the truck. However, there was a dog who heard me and came over. What started as fun, watching the hornets smash themselves into the windshield as I pressed against the glass turned into a nightmare as they discovered the dog. I have no idea where the mutt came from, nothing around for miles. Poor fella.
I was setting up to fall a big pine tree that was pretty close to a neighbor's house once. As I was clearing out the low brush at the base of the pine I ran into a nest about 2' off the ground.I've never seen one that low before. 4'-5' is probably the lowest I've seen one, usually higher. Sure would hate to hit that while on a bike. Or worse yet, a tractor with no cab. (slower than a TW!)
Scott, do y'all have any of these?Wow,
You guys really have some hurtful insects back there. I'm afraid I'd have to call for an air strike!!!! Maybe a dose of Napalm would do it huh? We don't have that kind of stuff around here in Lake Havasu AZ. All we have is HEAT! Phoenix has some killer bee attacks once in a while.
