Not so cut-n-dried as you might think:Yup:
Yep, I've opened a mud daubers nest just to see what was inside. A bunch of spiders for the young to feed on. So I tend to leave them alone until they attack me. Then they lose. But what the heck are they doing out on the highway which is what this thread is about? They are there just looking for me, that has to be it!!!!Not so cut-n-dried as you might think:
Recently a newspaper asked its readers to propose species that were, ecologically speaking, “useless”, such that their loss would not have any great knock-on effect on other species or biological cycles…theconversation.com
Why don't you ride with an Epipen? my ex has a bee allergy and always rides with one onboard.I am allergic to bee venom, and have been stung 3 times while riding. Once thru the pants, once on the back of the neck, and once on the wrist. It always results in a ride to the ER or urgent care. So I cover up as much as possible, so as not to leave any exposed skin. I always use gauntlet style gloves, as sleeves without them seem like bee scoops. I have been lucky for a long time now, with no recent stings.
Actually I do! I have one in my backpack. When I get stung, I pull right over, drop my pants, and self inject into my thigh. Then I head to the hospital for what's next. One time it was in nice IV cocktail of steroids and morphine.Why don't you ride with an Epipen? my ex has a bee allergy and always rides with one onboard.

Years ago I had a wasp fly into my T-shirt while I was riding - that sucker stung me about 10 times before I could pull over and rip off my T.it is the WASP that seems to get me once in a while! You know it's a wasp because it will sting you numerous times until squished whereas a Bee will sting once!
