    In this video:

    There are many similarities and differences between our little wing-whipping friends. For starters, all can sting you. That said, you may derive some solace in the fact that when certain of them sting humans, they die- not so when they sting many other animals. The barbed stingers on honey bees particularly end up getting lodged in our soft flesh, ripping out their backsides when they try and get away after stinging you. When they sting most animals, this doesn’t happen.

    Work is done, soon gonna die, life now feels pointless... Time to go out for something sweet, get drunk, and do something stupid that will likely get it killed...
    Maybe are species aren't so different after all?
    Wasp: Bring it on you flabby, mostly hairless ape! I GOT NOTHING TO LIVE FOR AND YOUR COMING WITH ME!!!

    hornets dont actually attack humans veary easily except when threatened usually near their nest since they dont often go after human food so nope ill stad by my hatefull opinion wasps are still the worst,😥

    This vid is so interesting and informative. I always wonder tho why a hornet starts flying around you, being a pest. In my yard, I run for my back door when one chases me for no reason!

    I got stung by a paper wasp on the forehead years back. It felt like getting a hard hit on the head with a claw hammer. A honey bee sting is mild in comparison.
