How’s this for a surprise? You are outside doing yard work and trimming bushes when you aggravate a hidden Bald Faced Hornet nest! In fact an elderly woman died exactly this way when she was doing the exact same thing. Once these very aggressive hornets are disturbed they set of an alarm pheromone that tells nest mates to attack. Once stung there is another pheromone released with the sting that puts a bulls-eye right on you!
These nests start small and quasi-slowly in the spring but by August they can exceed the size of a basketball and by September they can be as big as a medicine ball! Wasps and hornets can cause anaphylactic shock in people and pets so do not get a can of “wasp & hornet jet freeze” and try and solve this problem on your own because you could be taking your life into your hands!
