    Thanks, No i just set it on macro and took off, i had them in a plastic jar except for the last one, But if it had stung me i would have killed it, plain and simple. I think im probably going to ship the Bald face to a guy who wants reproductives. I wish I could keep her though!

    I love wasps/bees/hornets/ants!

    Out here in California we get these wasps called tarantula hawks. they have a metallic blue body with bright orange wings, and they get like 3 inches long. They have the most powerful sting of all the wasps, and they do hunt tarantulas. I caught one last summer. Scary buggers.

    hunt, kill, and use the dead bodies for the next generation. my cousin brought one back in a jar from last summer when he went to arizona. it was one freaky wasp. my brother got stung by one of those common red-brown wasps(pics 1 2 and 3) on the eyelid. wasnt a very pretty sight (or sound!) i like bees! they make our gardens and stuff fruit! have you all heard of the massive blight of bees across the US!!?

    Too bad I can't have a camera at work .. I spray a mold prevention chemical on new contruction framework. Weather's starting to warm up and they love it inside houses still being built. While the chemical I have to spray is pretty much harmless to me (and possibly only while it's still wet), it's lethal to any bug I've come across.

    Unfortunately enough for the wasps/bees/etc, I can't stop spraying and wait for them (large gas powered chemical fogger). It doesn't kill them instantly, so they usually come after me and I have to put 'em down, lol. Too bad I can't take some sarrs to work with me, lol
