    Default Zapped

    I was at a job this morning only 10-15 minutes when, ZAP.
    Stung by a wasp twice. I asked the customer to go to store and get me some Benidryl. Then ZAP again, inside my shirt. Really really hurt. Made me sick and lost my breakfast (1 cup of coffee).
    Customer comes back, counts 7 stings on my neck and back.
    I was able to finish the job, but talk about nervous, wasp were every where.
    Came home early, took another Benidryl and a nap, woke up about 5:30.
    10 hours after being stung it still hurts.

    I can tell, "It's gonna be one of those Months".

    I carry it (Benedryl sp?) in my truck. I also carry about three cans of spray.

    I feel for you....sorry.

    Rick,

    You sure Jose Cuervo kills those suckers?

    Ever go back later to make sure they just were not "falling down drunk"?

    Yeah, except the ones that got me had much larger stingers.

    This is a picture of a Red Paper Wasp nest I found a couple of years ago. I call them Nuclear Wasp! They are real common in the South. It is one of the most aggressive wasp I have ever seen, they will attack 20+ feet from their nest.
