Here's someone for whom ivermectin didn't work, and who would not recommend it to others now. For the MuH bOtH sIdEs crowd.

So hot. so tired of it its taking its toll on me. Yet another 100+ heat index day ahead. it was ~90 by 9:30. 

Sure, i have AC in the house, but gotta go outside to do things  ( like clean up brush from a tree trimming.. walk dogs.. feed the jeep.. )   Its like you get hit in the face and chest with a bat when you walk outside.

Wife's job takes her outside a % of the day.

 

Sooooooo much waiting for winter to come.

Heat is way different in NYC than in Arizona. I've walked a few blocks in NYC during a very hot summer, and it was miserable. 115 here is far more tolerable. 

But we've had a humid one, and my outdoors is basically a wasp metropolis during the day. Had Orkin come out here and spray two nests - but I suspect there are at least 3 remaining - and their stuff is slow acting - so it'll be a couple of days before I know if we got enough of them to cut down on it. My pool is basically a giant water reservoir for the flying, stinging bastards during the day - so you can only enjoy yourself after sunset. It literally has as much air-traffic as Sky Harbor *prior* to Covid - they're stacked up on landing approach, as 3 take off, 3 more are incoming, constantly. 

And I know they're using the water to build their fucking nests bigger, to make more wasps, to take more water. 

There should be something harmless to humans and organic you can put into your pool that they would take back to the colony and it would kill them all. I would revel in the idea of doing that. Something that would turn all their larvae sterile and cause the collapse of their entire community - or that would make them unable to absorb nutrients - or make them misread pheromones and see members of their own community as intruders and wage war against themselves. Any of these would be too good for them. 

I hate wasps. I understand now how the scorpions slowly drove Freddie Muniz insane in Scottsdale.

Speaking of stinging creatures. That bee nest is still in my back yard up in that tree.  They dont bother us at all, so i left it. We have a peach tree out front, lost a lot of peaches on the ground this year ( wind, squirrels, birds, whatever ) and last few days they have been munching away on the fallen fruit ( but not what is still on the tree, they are being polite ).  Not one bee in the house, not one bee being aggressive. I have even been out in the front yard working on limbs. We co-existed just fine. its weird.

As allergic as i am, for whatever reason i'm not the least bit concerned about them being here.  Now, the wasp nest in one of our evergreens.  it can die. Its going to die as i'm cutting the thing down and burning it.

Same. Those who know me know that I live for winter these days. Fall/Winter/Spring at best.

It's a low-pressure weekend around here, and the weather is not horrible, but marginal.

Too many video games.

Every wild honeybee nest in Arizona is assumed to be Africanized. So, they all go, as soon as they set up house. 

They're dangerous. 

European Honeybees - they'll only sting you on accident or because you've seriously threatened them - on purpose or otherwise. 

African Honeybees will come looking for a fight.

Grr went to visit my mother. Get there 'We are closed for visits at this time".    They didnt bother to call anyone to tell them, normally they do..

I assume virus paranoia. Donno since we didn't get the call. 

 

At least it was a nice drive, 45min one way, thru what is left of the country around here.  75. Some clouds. Almost no humidity. Don't get many days like this.    Dog liked hanging her head out the window. ( and ya, the top on the jeep was down )

Anything that can sting gets destroyed. I don't care what it is or where it's from. My wife is allergic and I simply hate the damn things. The more toxic the spray, the better.

I've seen the guys who do the whole routine of putting on a suit and then vaccuming them up into a shop-vac with soapy water in it. Fuck that noise, give me the toxic chemicals.

I am horribly allergic too, but i try to cut things like bees slack. They do good things and normally dont go after you.  But, its scary.

I think the thing about a bee is that it is designed to AVOID stinging. I mean, it isn't an economical trade for a bee to sting - because you get a welt and some discomfort, and it rips its intestines out. 

Wasps are fuckers, though.

They definitely have a "Give me a reason, fucker," attitude. 


I've killed a few hundred of them this summer... over a period of time. I had 3 friends visit and we got drunk in the pool and waged war on them all day. Filled a dixie cup full of their corpses over a 2 day period. 

We did the whole thing to a Viet Nam theme - out in the bush fighting those little black and yellow bastards... 

 ...as I said... we got drunk and killed 'em all day long, and they kept coming in waves - and by the end - things got a little Apocalypse Now.

This one time, I got stung, I knew it was probably going to happen and didn't have much choice...

Was rock climbing in the Gunks. On this route, you have to make a 5.8+ move and the easiest way to do it is to jam your whole arm into this 5" wide crack. I mean it's so much easier if you do it that way, it makes something difficult into something casual.

Of course my partner was leading and he went first and got stung. So I figured there was probably a nest in the vicinity, maybe even in the crack not too far away.


So I had to follow and sure enough I got stung too. On the bicep of the left arm that you have to jam in there.

I think it was a wasp or a hornet. Not a bee. Anyway, that sucker left a welt the size of a quarter, with a dot in the center, that looked sickly for at least a couple of weeks. It turned a pale white color and sort of collapsed inward, a bit, with a red ring around the outside boundary.

Nasty fuckers. If you got hit by a whole angry swarm, you could wind up in the hospital.
