Imagine my delight when this insect was in my room.
So handsome he gave me the chills.
Over two inches long I knew the wasp has been taking steroids.
He displayed his stinger with pride!
Looks kinda like a hornet or ground wasp but also looks like this guy in the third picture to me. A very deadly Asian Hornet has a doppelganger in Arkansas. I did not prod nor poke nor pester this one. It was the biggest wasp like insect I've ever seen. Called in my hero to dispatch said wasp on steroids. I was armed with fly swats but Andrew went right for the wasp spray. Since I'm allergic we were taking no chances.
I know it supposed to be "Live and let be" but I enjoyed his after picture much better than his before. Certainly hope his family doesn't know what I did or it will be worse than the Hatfield's and McCoy's.
There will be war!
