Beware the Hornets!

Once again this year, there are several Asian giant hornet nests scattered around work.

One of my coworkers joked of all the small things in Korea, this is one you'd want to be small, but instead you get these huge monsters.

I found a nest behind the outer storage shed.  Last year we had a couple in the bushes in front of one of the main buildings.

The maintenance guys got all covered up and ripped those bad boys out of there after spraying them with some kind of poison.

Apparently, these can kill you, so if you see a bunch of them probably best to walk the other way.  Busan Mike has a good post on the subject.

I usually just wave my cigarette at the more intrepid that come around the smoking corner and off they go.  Still, not something you want camped on your front porch.

Time for coffee.
