I have one.

Back in 7th grade I broke my ankle playing tackle football for school. The day I went in to get the xray for my foot there was Mexicans running around yelling and screaming. Turns out they hit a hornets nest. Now little defenseless me was being wheelchaired into the building. As this was happening my mother pushed the chair right through the area where the hornets nest was and said, and I quote, "You'll be fine." I was stung 17 times. She wasn't stung at all.

I've been terrified of wasps/hornets ever since. I'm 21 now. This happened 8 years ago.

I ask because today as I go to cut my lawn I see a hornets nest right at the door of my shed. It's not big. Maybe a little bigger than a golf ball. There's about 4-6 of them flying around it now. I dropped the weed wacker just as I realized it was there and said to myself, **** it. No lawn cutting today. How do I get rid of this horrible creation?

There was an underground hornet nest when we were camping once. My brother found it and covered the hole with some wood or something. Called me over and said "hey Tom, check this out! There's something really awesome under there!". Took the thing away and was swarmed with hornets, covered head to toe in stings.

I put a bee in his pop to get revenge and it stung him in the mouth.

Stupid asshole.

P.S. we were like 5 or something.

I accidentally knocked one out of a bush the size of a football. Got stung like 15 times.

Never again

There was one in the outer brickwork of our old beat up house we had as kids. So we would insert the hose in it, turn it on and hide inside.

Sell your place to another person. Their problem then.

I haven't had an experience with hornets, but I grew up on a farm, and a few years ago my dad and I were cleaning out my grandparent's barn lot. They have an old antique gas pump that was sitting over in a corner of the lot at the time. It was heavy, so my dad grabbed some chains and I pulled the tractor over so we could get it in the giant bucket on the front end of the tractor and move it somewhere else. When my dad went to put the chains around it, he covered the small area of the tank where the little gun goes into with his right arm. There was a good size hornet's nest inside that he knocked loose, and they stung him to pieces! I've never seen him run faster... I had to hit the brakes on the tractor because he almost ran right into me since he wasn't looking where he was going.

NOTHING HURTS BATMAN!

We usually get wasps tring to build a nest here so we usually get rid of it by spraying it with a wasp and hornet killer then we get the hose and wash it away.

One of my favorite memories is of my grandpa doing battle with one.

In Maryland, we had these particularly nasty bald faced hornets set up shop in our pear tree. The nest got absolutely massive and when my grandpa came to visit, he wasn't going to let it lay. He literally just wraps some old rags around a broom handle, douses it in kerosene, lights it up and marches out there and shoves it right in the nest. The thing goes up in flames and the hornets come out full force and he doesn't even flinch.

It was a pretty cool day to be a grandson.

We were shooting airsoft guns in a field one time. Their are these little evergreen trees that are about seven feet tall. Inside one of them was a huge hornets nest that was almost as big as the tree. My buddy finds it and decides to pop a few rounds into it. I walked over to the tree (not knowing about the nest) because I had left some gear over there. One of them went into my hair and ripped into my scalp. Then about 50 of them swarmed us. We dropped everything and sprinted home

Whenever we have hornets or bees in our backyard, we'll light a few smoke bombs near the nest and smoke them out, then when they're gone we'll destroy the nest so they won't come back

Personally, i'd get a pressure washer and blast those ****ers away from a distance.


If no pressure washer, get a bag of bricks and start chuckin them until you knock that shit out of the tree.

When I was young, my cousin and I used to throw rocks at hornets nest and then run away. It was actually a lot of fun. Not smart, but fun. Surprisingly I was only even stung once.

Just massive 2-inch+ mosquitoes growing up that left 2-inch+ bites.


Probably not mosquitoes, man.

Hornets, no. Wasps, yes.

When I was a toddler, my family owned a pub which had loads of land as well, and there was a forested bit where rhubarb and brambles would grow, so we went in quite often. One day, I was walking through leaf litter, and my foot when right into an underground nest. The only part of my body uncovered was my face and neck. The doctors stopped counting at 100 stings. Ever since I've had hypersensitivity to wasp stings.

I would have just asked to die if I got that many stings. That's horrible, and for a little child to go through that is just crazy.

Bees/Wasps/Hornets are terrible creatures.

I like to believe that if you get stung by something with an exoskeleton, you gain it's powers.

Unfortunately, I gained the ability of having a sweet tooth rather than the power of flight

You are now aware that...



..this works.

I had a hornet and bee problem in my apartment the first 4 months I lived there. Bees were getting in through my ventilation and a hornets nest was roosted above my main door entrance. The hornets were 2 inches long and yellows as bananas. I sprayed those mother fucckers into oblivion with this raid spray.

It has become my offensive and defensive shield against bros and not bros.
