I think there are a few species of hornets and more than one ground hornet , this one came out a hole at the base of a tree in the dirt , I would say some type of ground hornet ------I am not sure if it is the same thing but have heard them called European warps , the pic is bad cause he been dead for 36 hours before the pic , they are bright yellow and black

Did it look close to this (ground hornet) ? I really can't make out your pic .....kind. Of odd no one here has had a run in with killer swarming bees ??

I jumped off my tractor while bushhogging, ran along side for a few seconds until the hornets left and then with a perfectly timed jump I'm driving again.
That's sketchy ...had a good friend get hurt just like that! .he was running long side, went to jump back on and the tire caught his leg... Ended broken in two places... I hazard a guess what would have happened if he'd been bushoging., But I can't say too much.... I pull those stunts to. (Dangerous time savers)

I got this @zz a while back.... (Posted in Mrbbs pic thread) i sat and watched for a while... I've never seen any critter rip the soil up so fast, You can see the destruction, The 870 super mag (full choke) stopped the issue, and yep, it jumped up bout a foot, even with a shot like this, and of corse the shot set a car alarm off @ 3 am ...haha!

Bout that size ? Cause the Japanese hornet looks close (kind of the same colors) but much much bigger. .... I've seen the jap breed take down cicadas bugs (many times) but I've never tangled with one of um.

And i think there ground dwellers @ least they are in some of my hay fields ....

This is a scale pic... He's maybe 1 1/2 ??
