What you are looking at is a gigantic yellow jackets nest that completely fills up an abandoned automobile.
This kind of stuff gives me the chills.
This is the true beginning of the end.
While the fundamentalist religious are looking for a seven headed dragon to come out of the ocean with a crown on one of its heads, what I am looking for as a sign of the end of times isn’t as fantastical.
Well, maybe it is. I just wish it wasn’t.
The end of times is not going to be heralded in by a headless horseman or a pale horse with a naked jockey riding on its back, but rather yellow jacket nests that take up the entirety of abandoned mobile homes.
Even insect experts, the people who ought to know enough to give us an educated guess aren’t sure why these yellow jackets are building such gigundous nests.
Auburn University entomologists say that they have never seen nests this large and they have been popping up over 2/3rds of Alabama.
Andy McLean, an Orkin pesticide service manager in Dothan, Alabama said that he has removed nests so big this summer that they had to be removed in sections.
I think this is the first stages of the return of the dinosaurs. Back in a day it seemed everything on the earth was bigger than it is now.
Haven’t you ever wondered why everything millions of years ago was so damn huge?
Mosquitoes back then were the size of eagles.
Well now you know.
That is how God wipes us out. He just makes everything gigundous and lets nature take its course.
”The largest nest Entomologist Dr. Charles Ray at the Alabama Cooperative Extension System in Auburn says that he has inspected this year filled the interior of a weathered 1955 Chevrolet parked in a rural Elmore County barn. That nest was about the size of a tire in the rear floor seven weeks ago, but quickly spread to fill the entire vehicle, the property owner, Harry Coker, said.”
Ok, so I am not sure this global warming is such a bad thing. It might be for us but obviously it isn’t for yellow jackets.
Normal yellow jacket nests are no bigger than a basketball, have 1 queen and about 3,000 workers.
These have about 100,000 workers and multiple queens.
"We're not really sure how this multiple queen thing works," Ray said. "It could be that the daughters of the original queen don't leave the nest or that the queens have developed some way to cooperate."
Ok now I am really scared. Isn’t that how all hostile takeovers begin? The insects start to make alliances. These are bugs for crying out loud. They aren’t supposed to learn anything. They operate on instinct. Insects have been doing the exact same thing for countless generations.
Now all of a sudden, they have learned to cooperate?
Not without help they didn’t.
If you want to believe in creation that’s your business, but then you’ve got to own this kind of stuff too.
If animals don’t evolve then they also don’t learn new things because they don’t change, they don’t adapt.
At least not without a little divine intervention.
The other thing that makes yellow jackets so terrible is that instead of eating sugar like nice little bees, Yellow jackets actually eat the bees.
Yellow Jackets are carnivorous.
Yeah I know what you were thinking. Its funny when God terrorizes India with monkeys but that shit isn’t so funny when he uses carnivorous bees…on us.
