Thread: My terrifying experience

  1. #11
    Glad it sounds like your ok. I had a similar experience around 25 years ago. I was way out in my back yard on my Tractor and hit a nest. My dog was with me too. They attacked me and the dog. I headed back to the house as fast as I could with the dog running alongside me. Ended up with a lot of Stings but was ok. But it was a pretty crazy experience.

    Yep, a yellow jacket is actually a type of hornet, not a bee. They typically live in burrow in the ground. Very painful stings...worse that a bee. You should get an exterminator out who dig out the whole nest. Not a do-it-yourself job.

    Just a brief note to let you know that I have pretty much recovered from the bee stings. I just have a few blotches where multiple stings were close together. There are also a couple of sting spots that feel like they have stingers in them but do not. It is interesting that there was not a single sting on my right arm or face side. I am not sure how to interpret that. lol

    I assure you that this will not be a do-it-yourself job done by me.

    That's just awful! I absolutely detest yellow jackets! They start coming out here in September and we've all had numerous attacks from them while working in the yard. The only thing we've found that will get rid of the hive is to pour gasoline in the hole and light it on fire.

    Yikes! Glad you're okay!
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    I had to deal with those things last summer. They were in the ground in a little storage tent where I keep my mower. My neighbor sprayed the nest for me, at around dawn, one day. The next day it looked like an animal dug out the ground where the nest had been. I don't know why that would happen.
    Anyway, glad you are recovering pretty quickly. That's a scary thing to happen.
