Malaysian Giant Hornets (Vespa Tropica)

I found this big hornet’s nest on my father in law’s durian tree. Hornets are dangerous insects, therefore it is wise to stay at least 10 meters away if encounter a hornets nest.  Like bees, the hornet stings is very painful and to someone who is allergic to the venom, death may occur from anaphylactic reaction. The hornets nest on my father in law's durian tree. Closed up of the hornet collecting wood to build its' nest.

Aiyor! So dangerous! My quinee (local mango) trees FULL of them...but the nest was not there. By evening, the whole lot would fly away in a thick, black cloud. I had to get people to come and get rid of the trees (...could earn a few hundred ringgit each time they bore fruits, minus those that I gave away to friends and relatives!!!).

STP : Quinee, I missed that fruit. Quite some time haven't eat already lorr.

Bee Sting Cure said...

Many stings and bites take place during the fall
months as the temperature of the days decrease. Reason being, bees, wasps and
insects in general are cold blooded and they linger around people and pets in order
to absorb body heat, therefore increasing the chances of getting stung or bitten.
Last week, I witnessed a 4 year old girl with her hand and forearm swollen
to her elbow, from a wasp sting that she received to her fingertip the day
before. The sight of her hand and arm brought tears to my eyes because I knew
that if she had had
Baker's Venom Cleanser
available when she was stung, none of her discomfort
would have elevated to that extreme point of swelling and discomfort.

news commentary video footage from 1988 has been added to
and the link is available at our site. Our formula also works to stop the itch
of the dreaded Itch Mite!

AccordingFIRST AID to the professionals in medicine, first aid which is the very first assistance offered to save a life, should be given until the casualty is placed in the careful hands of nurses and doctors to responsibly handle them.

Nice post... Looks like solid state memory is finally starting to become more popular. Hopefully we'll start seeing a drop in solid-state drive prices real soon. Five dollar 32 gig SDs for your Nintendo DS flash card... sounds good to me!
