William's Blog...with a smile!


These guys are not friendly...

Here is a nest of a black bee or what I believe is a wasp.

They build these nests with material that they get from plants and, well, spit.

One thing is these guys are not nice neighbors.

If they feel anything is a threat, they are all over them.

Not just one but sometimes  a dozen.

I saved this nest.

It is used for about 4 weeks and when I could

tell they were gone I cut the nest.


Please be careful...they can be mean!

those are hornets.  Wasps don't build a hive, they build an open nest.  Those suckers are deadly if you get too many stings and they tend to swarm in larger groups

I was showing a house once, and I heard some noise in a room and carefully opened the door. Yes, you guessed it, that was the "Bee" room. I'm not sure where the nest was. I didn't do any more exploring. I told the listing agent and hopefully she took care of it. Imagine if a buyer or agent was allergic!

Good morning William. I have this sort of nest in and outside my propane tank. I am waiting for the frost to remove it.

You are courageous for getting that close.

I am always impressed with the extreme design those little buggers came up with for their home.

I give anything the stings a wide berth William Feela 

I do agree with Myrl Jeffcoat's comment...their home designs are pretty impressive!

I just got in to an argument last night with a group of wasps that had build a nest in a recessed can light on our balcony. After a trip to pick up for wasp and hornet spray they have been evicted.

They will chase you if you mess with them. The sprayer better have a long range nozzle on it. Spray and run.

Morning William.

Those hornets are nasty.  I keep my distance from them at all cost, besides I'm allergic to their stings

We need to take care when knocking down those nests.

Have an outstanding week.
