Asian giant hornets are a pretty big deal around here. People know the season they start to appear (now), and they know how to generally avoid conflict. But when our spheres overlap, for example, when one of these guys starts to build a hive on the side of your house, it’s time to take action.
I’ll keep it short and sum up with the final tally:
Me with fruit juice trap: 0
Old Japanese guy with bee spray that sprays 10 meters: +1
One asian giant hornet: -1
As a postscript, when I was digging to dispose of the body I dug up a nest of mukade, Japanese poisonous centipedes. *sigh* Maybe it’s just going to be that kind of year?
