They got me this weekend whilst plowing my food plot. The little *********'s didn't bother me when I hooked up the harrow setting right on top of their lair, (I found this out later bang). I did the dirt work and came back to unhook and BAM, I was set upon by the little fiends. Up my shirt, in my beard, and under my hat I have knots everywhere above the belt.

BOLO for them, they are there! realmad

Had me a decent battle with them suckers a few years ago while clearing some property. Ended up pouring gas down the holeSSSSSS (there were TWO) and then covered each hole with a few 5 gallon buckets full of dirt.

Had some too. Mixed up a bucket of water and dish washing liquid waited til dark and poured it down the hole. Next day not a one flew out. Dug it up and was surprised how big the hive was.

They do hurt like hell but I have only been stung by one getting it out of the house. They are normally good creatures eating cicadas.

Had a similar thing happen a years ago, but with bumble bees in a ground nest. Moved a stack of cattle panels so we could mow the area. Under the last panel was a hole that looked like it was moving. Next thing I was trying to out run a whole cloud of bumble bees.
