Felt something soft inside my collar while playing BF2.

Imagine my horror when a hornet buzzed out and started dive bombing my lamp shade.

Currently hiding under a table. What do I do? Sucker seems armour plated.

I don't have any armour piercing ammo handy. Any ideas?

Cup/Bowl. Placed over Hornet. Then you can deal with your enemy at will.

Windex/Glass cleaner will knock out any insect with a few sprays. Thereby allowing safe capture for toture, dissection, or flushing purposes.

Also has the side effect of possibly cleaning whatever surface you spray it on.

I used about a quarter can of Raid on one a few years back. It was still alive 6 hours later.

If you can get it to stand still (Venom's idea seems ideal) then a hammer should do the trick.

Especially if it lands on your monitor...:)

Place over it? The bugger is kamikaze bombing my lampshade.

If on a flat surface, fair enough.

Tried that. The bastard ripped it out of my clenched fists and proceeded to beat me round the head with it.

Any more? I'm a bit concussed to think right now.

EDIT: I think it's an Aussie insect. Brit ones just aren't this tough.

Any ideas Skanky? Greg?

Surrender and die.

Never!

Anyway, what is point of surredering if I die anyway?

They don't like cold.

Hit em with ice water and the war is over.

Saved!

I distracted the hornet by tap dancing over to the Dust Buster - a quick draw and the sucker was sucked!

EDIT: Oh shit. Worse than Australian.

IT'S A FUCKING AFRICAN! WE'RE SCREWED! GAME OVER!

Perfect excuse for aerosol + lighter.

say it's linked to al qaida and call Fox news, you should get help from the 82sd

I used to catch the hornets and then put them under a plastic garbage can container. There they would slowly roast in the hot summer sun.

For their nests I would use a garden hose to knock it down and then do the same. Slow deaths due to heat exhaustion seems like a grand punishment for the crime of being a whisp.

The obvious way to get hornets to stop hitting the lampshade is to turn the light off. They think it's the bloody sun, innit?

Turn on the light in the room next to yours and make sure the door is wide open, then turn off yours. Repeat until you've reached the porchlight.

Nah, it is simplier to just kill it.
