    Bees are awesome .... but I don't admire their form of government.

    I wage war on hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets at my place.

    My roses got a damaging green worm that defoliated them.

    In research I found out that the key predator of those are wasp, hornets, and yellow jackets.

    Maybe like wolves or martins - every species is part of the web?

    Of course, I live in California, where the distinction is increasingly being treated as meaningless, but I think to any sane person, it remains obvious if you see me, as shown here in the thread “Users own pictures, cummon dont be shy (PICTORIAL) NSFW”.

    We have a type of hornet up here that builds nests in the ground. Imagine stepping into one of those while working in the yard/garden! A friend of mine told me they are partial to aqua-colored clothes and will attack anyone wearing that color first.
