I was walking around in the woods behind the house...Picked up stick an got more than I wanted i started running toward the house best I could!

Got me on the eye, twice on top my shoulder, ionce on my back. Came out my shirt right at the back door ( lol) an ran to bathroom to get something for it.

Was crying by that time. Now 7 hours later they still hurting. But not crying. Those things really hurt!!!

I heard might be good for arthritis ..Maybe something good come of it.


  • I did something similar a few weeks ago..........was trimming back some weeds and forgot there was a wasp nest in the wood pile there, and hit it apparently with the weed wacker.........I got swarmed and stung over 10 times......every where! Even my poor buttocks got three bites ...LOL
    My hand was swollen for five days after, although the other stings were painful, the hand was the worst.
  • ...we better stay away from the bushes!!! Lol! I don't want do that againI think I'm scarred. For life!
  • No more woodpiles for me, or bushes and weedwackers....LOL
    Those wasps hurt!

    We need to sting them right back! That will teach them a lesson

    Only thing, I cant quite figure how we can do something like that....

    Hornets are angry devils, like some real burning sciatica pain.

    I dont mind bumble bees, they just buzz around getting some pollen moving over to the next flower. I have interrupted their trip a few times, and they dont mind, just buzz away and then come back.
