Redneck Exterminator

To avenge the stinging of a friend, this Darwin Award wannabe soaked a bees nest in a tree with gasoline and set it on fire. The explosion caused neighbors to call 911, but by the time firefighters arrived the fire was out and the bees were dead. No charges have been filed.

It's common practice and I agree with Expat, it worked. That's how we get yellowjacket nests all the time. Granted they are in the ground so it doesn't explode when lit, but same result. Also, if it were a hornets nest then more power to him. In SC, we have had an influx of Japanese hornets. They are HUGE.

You aren't kidding, here is a picture of one on a hand.

Below is a quote from jasper the Japanese Hornet in an "interview".

"Though humans are never our main target, it is estimated that approximately 40 humans die every year from our attacks. Our stingers contain a venom that can dissolve skin and is lethal to humans if not treated quickly. We can also travel at speeds of up to 25 miles per hour for 60 miles. We are also known for ejecting acidic saliva from our mouths into eyes. Sorry, but nature's gotta defend itself!

CLICK HERE for some more interesting info on, and a fair warning from, Jasper.

The article is outdated somewhat since it claims that they are not in the U S.
