BEES? WASPS? HORNETS? D:
< on 4/9/2012 10:11 PM >
Posted on Forum: UER Forum
 
Has anyone encountered any nests of bees and all those other flying annoyances with stingers? The other day while exploring I found a huge pile of dead wasps, How they were killed, I have no idea. (By the way, I searched for similar topics using the word 'Bees' brought up nothing. Sorry if I missed something.
Anyhow. I've got a pretty crazy fear of bees and things that fly and can sting me. I guess because when a spider is on the ground it can only move so fast to bite you or something, but bees can fly at you and sting you within a few seconds. Also, where there's one bee, there's usually more somewhere. I've actually been considering carrying around a small can of spray or something just in case. An abandoned house I was standing near yesterday had tons of bees flying around it. I'd hate to see what that looks like inside..

sounds like you should just stay put at home. not worth the risk.

If you do opt to live on the edge.....Supposedly, Vagasil actually makes unreal repellents when applied on your skin. so just wipe yourself down with that stuff and you should be good

Steal only whatever you can run with comfortably and leave no footprints

So, I'll be optimistic here, but if you see a lot of bugs flying around a single spot (say, a door), someone might as well have spilled something there that attracts them.
Whenever I encounter bees or wasps I brush them aside and it's all good. If there's a lot of them though (and I mean a LOT) you might want to avoid waving your arms around. That will definitely startle them and boy, you'll be feeling that in the morning ;)
Needless to say, if you can spot a hive you should probably get the hell out of there. Just imagine some giant monster invading your city, people would end up attacking it. Same goes for the bees.
You could consider carrying a can of raid of course, but what good would that be? You won't get them all at once, so some might sting you after all. And I'm trying to sound like a hippie here, but why disturb them? They're not harming anyone.
So, in a nutshell: if you see some bees or wasps, you could consider taking the risk. Be careful with hives though and don't disturb the creatures if you can avoid it.

Well if you aren't allergic to them it's just pain.

Most bumblebees, wasps, and honeybees are pretty mellow as long as you don't mess with their nests. Some wasps are hyper aggressive and will attack if you get near their nests. White Headed hornets are some the worst to be attacked by.
Yellow Jackets will attack without any reason at times, and are the ones I hate the most.

A site I went to recently was full of Ground Bee nests. I'd never encountered them before, but when I heard a familiar humming I looked up in the trees or buildings for nests. It wasn't until I stepped on one of the nests and bees came swarming out that I realized what I'd run into. I made myself calmly walk away and wasn't stung. I've never been stung before, but I've learned that acting as calm as you can around any type of bee or wasp is the best thing you can do. I know they're intimidating, but if you're cautious you should be ok. Look for signs, as in a nest, the occasional bee on a window here or there or the humming sound. In my opinion, the bees were there first, so don't bring wasp/bee spray to their home.

There was a member here "scarecrow" I think that was in Texas somewhere and had a post of a house FULL of dead bees. I wish I could find it now as it was pretty cool and he does some other awesome night shots. Hopefully he'll see this thread and chime in.

Yeah large amounts of "angry wasps" are the worst site security ever because you can't win against them. Well at least I can't I'm slightly allergic, if there is just a few I'll go on past them but a whole swarm or nest and I'm headed to a new spot. I went in a old house this summer that was a repeat visit from a few months prior. I didn't think anything of it since I'd been there before but when the weather warmed up the wasps moved in.

I was in the house shooting, went around a corner and started hearing this constant low pitched humming. I figured it was a truck or farm equipment off in the distance until I noticed 1000's upon 1000's of wasps hanging out in the corner. It didn't take long for them to notice me either and they didn't enjoy visitors Needless to say I made a hasty exit and left the place alone until after the first fall freeze.

Also those gigantic black and yellow bumble bee's seem to have an undying love for me. I don't know if it's the soap or deodorant or some smell that I give off but if there is one in the area it seems to find me. And they don't just fly near me its like a full on molesting of my face and trying to land in my hair or go in my ears. I don't usually get bothered by bugs and I don't fail around or make any noise if one gets close to me but those things just will not leave me alone. The sound they make is like a small plane when they are next to your face, makes my skin crawl just thinking about it.

TL;DR SCREW BEES, WASPS, AND HORNETS AND GETTING ATTACKED BY THEM!

I've encountered many abandonments with large bee hives. If you don't fuck with them, they tend to leave you alone. Might land on you or something, just don't freak out. Yellow jackets on the other hand, they suck. I stumbled into a nest of those bastards and was strung (or bit?) many many times. It was not fun at all.

But if your really worried, carry a can of spray and use it if they attack. If your allergic at all, don't even go near. Not worth the risk.

The sound they make in your ear is so nerve racking. I've been stung on the bottom of my foot and dear god it must have hit a soft spot or something. It hurt so bad. Haha. Can't imagine what a sting in the butt would feel like. LOL.

I've got a pretty crazy fear of bees and things that fly and can sting me.


Only one way to get over your fear.

I walked up to a light fixture with a paper wasp nest inside it and smacked it, the wasp flew out so fast and (as I jumped back fell backwards onto my ass) it hit me smack dab in the middle of my forehead she hit so hard stunned she herself and didn't sting or bite me.

I headbutted a wasp and won.

He's also a master of messaging people just to call them names.

Don't get him riled up about bees though, he'll derail this thread so fast that he'll be discussing the intricacies of household bug problems in Thailand before we even realize what's happened.

As for the topic at hand, I find it's best to stay away from the nests. I've found some dead nests in machinery before, with the bees huddled together for warmth, but all died due to the cold. I've never been stung by a bee before, so I'm afraid of what that would be like and if I would have a bad reaction to it...therefore I do my best to be nice around bees and steer clear whenever possible.

One time at summer camp when I was little, I stepped on an underground yellow jackets' nest. I only got stung about three times, fairly lucky. Two of the stings however, were on my lips, top and bottom. Needless to say, I walked around like this for the following two days...



I was nicknamed "Jamal" for the rest of the summer, good times.

Ah! MrfullofShitvials! It's great and appropriate.


One time, at a place I was staying, there was a few wasp nests under the eves. During the day they swarmed outside, just flying around. And at night, somehow they made their way in at night, and huddled together in groups of twenty or so. I slept a night like that with them all inside before I could do something about getting rid of them the next day. It was freaky, but they didn't bother me.
