  • Re: London Bridge Incident ..Stay Safe Londoners...

    Another tragedy. The third in three months (just in England) and because of what? My imaginary friend is better then yours. Fools.

    Unfortunately we don't yet get hornets here :(

    I beg to differ... if you mean in the UK that is. I've seen hornets round here, no joking...

    We currently have a tree-bumble-bee nest just under the eaves of our roof. They nest in a completely different way to honey bees. Our Estate Agents were going to have them destroyed, but I pleaded with - and successfully convinced - them to leave them be.

    They don't nest for long; maybe a couple of months - then, they leave.

    I second this, I too am from the uk

    Don't worry, we will have a hornet-free future when BREXIT goes through. :p

    Ha! Then we can tell them all to buzz off home.

    We'll probably then realise we need them back, because our bees are a bit lazy. :p

    Yeah a bunch of slackers if you ask me. This new generation of Bees is so unmotivated. Personally I blame the hives and also the drugs. They don't care about work anymore just always concerned about their next buzz.

    That's nothing. I was stung by two of them in France.
    Phhht! yours is child's play.

    And no - don't you dare destroy the nest. They're an endangered insect. Leave them alone, they won't harm you if you just don't bother them....

    -I bet those wasps are using that chunnel! :-)

    Organised crime is enough, I don't think I can live in a world with organised hornets too.

  • GIANT God dam hornet in my room!

    There I was just sitting there watching a film in my room, minding my own business. Then this motherf£&@er just flew in my doorway. I think I quite literally shouted "JESUS F***ING CHRIST" it's the biggest wasp/hornet/giant stingy thing I've ever seen. I know I have been noticing some rather large ones in my house lately each one bigger than the last but this one was just ridiculous. If there is a nest around I know it's not very Zen but I'm gonna get the flamethrower out I think.

    Dunno if the pic does it justice but it was like three inches long.
    So now to sit back and anticipate those of you that are Aussies scoffing and telling me how tiny it was and how wimpy I'm being lol
