Why are hornets so darn mean?

Explained by LorraineTwevlehundredRaineTwelvehundred...

I haven't seen any untill today. Went out to hang something on the line and for no reason the nasty thing bit or stung me. I only had it happen once before and today was easier to understand. Feels like a burn. I remember years ago I was on a dirt bike and one got into my collar bit me a bunch of times before I was able to stop and understand it was a bite not oil splashing on me. Well I got it off and dressed carefully went out there and watched to see where it came from, a decoration sideways and the things made a nest inside. So at dusk when they all go home to the nest I took a bucket of dirty dish water and filled the thing the nest was floating. No more mean wasps now

They just have a very strong survival instinct. It's all about the nest.

That is probably true I wasn't near it . But that one little monster got his whole hive destroyed. It melted in the sink water.

Yes that would work. I didn't have any here so I killed the whole hive by dish water.

Nasty upbringing. The queen should always be more than just an authority figure - perhaps some parenting lessons would change the attitude in the hive towards a much more positive approach on life, altering the over-all picture all around...

True monarchs can truly be dismissive. Poor soldier wasps. Relegated to sentry. Gotta do something to make life exciting.

Black & White - not colors, as such and thus.. It's my favorite anticolor scheme.
