KevinMLD’s home is the victim to a hostile takeover by a UFO. Of course, I needed to chime in and try to discover the identity of the enemy. This is the conversation that ensued:
angelique do they look like this? http://www.todayifoundout.com/index.php/2010/01/the-jewel-wasp-is-amazing/
kevinmld I tried to take pictures but they didn’t come out.
angelique are they big or small?
angelique you need to put your camera on the flower mode
kevinmld kar says bee size.
kevinmld i was using my phone
angelique Carpenter bee or Bavarian bee?
kevinmld what the hell is a Bavarian bee?
angelique i have no idea
angelique are they fast or slow?
kevinmld mostly slow.
kevinmld but not that slow.
kevinmld the Orkin guy proposed that maybe it was some sort of wasp baby larvae thing, but he said that basically he had no idea what it was, why it was awake, where it came from, or how to stop them.
angelique i thought wasps were fast
kevinmld Since we basically live in a cartoon world, we’ve been putting cups over top of them when we find them. And then we watch the cups move ever so slowly as they fight for their lives. We literally leave them lying around for weeks at a time to the point that the cats slap the cups around.
kevinmld and we put one in the freezer…
kevinmld and it came back to life.
kevinmld so clearly they’re immortal.
kevinmld no and what is that?
angelique that’s a digger/plasterer bee
angelique i guess it likes eating plaster the way a capenter bee eats wood
kevinmld we do have plaster all over the place in here.
kevinmld it’s wings are barely formed.
kevinmld and it’s skinnier than that.
kevinmld and it’s legs are almost like cricket legs.
kevinmld less happy than that with a friggin’ weapon on it’s tail.
kevinmld yes stripes, thats why we think its some sort of bee.
kevinmld stop! these pics are freaking me out (Karen)
angelique am i getting closer?
kevinmld that thing looks huge
kevinmld its super skinny
angelique i think it is super zoomed in
angelique those legs are super long
angelique i don’t know what’s wrong with me……
kevinmld yeah… weird cricket legs.
kevinmld tiny wings and a nasty tail you can’t see in the picture.
kevinmld and they’re invincible.
kevinmld and immortal.
angelique ok – according to my search for “skinny bug long legs spider/bee”
angelique this is the culprit!
angelique also – immortal
kevinmld it looks just like the bottom one
angelique it is this guy:
angelique as found on the internet: “Bees will only come back if you thaw them in your mouth. Every few minutes, you will need to sip a bit of honey so they have food when they wake up. Be very careful not to swallow.”
kevinmld i’ll have to try that
angelique i can’t find anything like that bug online. it must not exist.
kevinmld cause its an evil hybrid mutant invincible immortal hell spawn that will someday be named after us
