That may work but my wife read about (and has used a bunch) a paste of meat tenderizer. It neutralizes the venom from the sting.[b said:Quote[/b] ]Someone also told me a baking soda paste is also good but I haven't tried it.
actually I think it's more like a bunch of minutes[b said:Quote[/b] ]You can still see the venom glands on the end of the stinger pulsing for a few moments afterwards.
lol, if you haven't found it by now you're never going to find it. It's really quite obvious. You probably just brushed it off, or misidentified it as a bee instead of a wasp?[b said:Quote[/b] ]I have to first find the stinger before using tweezers. That has not happened yet.
I may have... a tiny one... but I didn't get to see it very well... I forgot why. I've always wanted to see them though.[b said:Quote[/b] ]Ambush bus are really neat and easy to observe closely. Anyone else ever seen one? IV seem them eating wasps 5 times their size., mostly to iv seen them eating flies and bees.
