    Almost 24 years old and I had never been stung by any type of insect. Today I was eating lunch in the office and a wasp crawled up inside my jeans and stung me.

    I've now lost my argument that you only get stung if you piss them off :wallbash:

    Anyone else managed to get away without being stung?

    We found a a wasps nest so thought it was a kick ass idea to ride our push bikes over it

    that idea really sucked ass

    At first I thought this was one of those, "don't want to read this but expect it on the internet" kind of threads.

    PICS!

    I got stung by a wasp right in my eye when I was like 5 or 6. Totally unprovoked. I was on a swing! Horrible things.

    I've been stung by lots of bees and wasps in my life, never found it all that bad. I dont mind bees, if they sting me they die so I don't tend to kill them by default, but if a wasp is in the house it dies. They're some of the most useless creatures around.

    I got stung by a wasp when i was young (cant remember age) but it was right on the behind :waah:
    Mind you, i was watering a tree and the wasps decided to make a hive in the roots. Ha ha, most drowned i hope :D
    A bee has also stung me, mind you i did pick it up :duh: days later my index finger was double its normal size, wasnt funny at the time.

    I fully agree with that quote, i think we should be pleased that we dont see many hornets.

    I'm deathly allergic to honeybees, so I try to avoid them.... Still, I've been to the emergency room 3 or 4 times getting mega-doses of benedryl combined with big shots of epinephrine.

    Good times..... Haven't been stung in more than 15 years though..... (Knock on wood.....)

    Ran over bees and wasps nests hidden in the ground multiple times while mowing the lawn. Really pisses them off and guarantees you'll get stung many, many, many times.

    I had one crawl up my shirt while I was doing some work. Really not sure how it got there without me noticing but when I went to rub what I thought was just an itch it stung me, I tore my shirt off and ran out the room shouting expletives.

    My friends dad had an interesting solution for those in ground nests - we were having a 4th of July picnic/explosion fest at their farm several years ago and a yellowjacket nest was discovered close to the front rose garden. My friends dad sent us to the barn to get a gallon of diesel fuel which he then poured into the hole in the ground.

    That might have been enough to kill them - I mean, crawling around in diesel can't be good for the little buggers.

    Then he lit it on fire -

    I remember when my brother put a foot in a wasp nest. I also remember the nest on fire and and burred until the last of the buggers were dead :naughty:
