It might have been a black wasp (generic term).Not sure where to put this, but remembered tis thread...
Got stung by something on my temple just below my hat.
That sucker kept chasing me and got me again on the side of my nose after the third "face attack".
I don't know what it was, but it was dark - I've never had anything come "find" me to keep stinging me.
I ran a good 40 feet from where it first got me.
I will usually stand off in the distance and watch to see where they are coming from.
Yellow jackets will go in and out of a hole or from a shrub and it's easy to pinpoint where the nest is at.
I couldn't do that because this thing would not leave me alone!
I'm pretty certain it was just the one and not several of them.
I THINK I swatted it to the ground with my rag and I stomped it on the street, but I'm not 100% certain it's what stung me.
Looked more like a dark bee than anything. Was not a yellow jacket.
I'm only really familiar with yellow jackets because that's what I typically run across.
My nose is swollen.
There goes my modeling career!
I was at a property today where they have nests under a large boulder.
They don't seem to protect the nest like yellow jackets, but they seem to come out individually rouge like and attack. They are about an inch long.
They get aggressive this time of year.
