    that you've been bitten by, stung, or generally injured by from something in the insect or animal kingdom?

    I don't have very good stories on this but it made me think since I was bitten by two red ants yesterday.

    Your experiences?

    I was stung by bees twice. Once because I was eating an apple and she wanted it. And once walking barefoot through grass.

    I've had chiggers on my stomach when traveling across the south, after visiting a grassy area to see ducks.

    I've been bitten by two dogs, once as an infant on the ear and once from a dog just roaming the neighborhood. Thank god the dog didn't have rabies.

    The worst was because of its location. I reached for my water bottle while driving one day, and was stung by a yellow jacket that had found its way into my car, on the tip of my index finger.

    I angered a wasps nest several times. The stings feel like electric shocks and they get mad and follow you.

    Ouch!! I try my hardest to stay clear of yellow jackets. They are more aggressive than bees as you know. Going camping without some sort of protection can be made miserable by those assholes.

    Where you purposely trying to anger them or remove the nest? I knew bees followed you but not wasps. Interesting.

    My aunt once discovered a wasps' nest in her laundry room. They were brave enough to make a nest inside the house. :scared:

    It was inside of a pipe gate that I rarely use. I didn't know about it till they were rocking me.

    hey I love playing around in nature but I don't have any cool stories about insect stings or close encounters with dangerous animals. guess they love me too much to even contemplate doing me any harm :)

    I was in a junk yard once and stepped on the hood of a car. Hornets swarmed out from inside the car. They stung me dozens of times and chased me and my brother away. I was getting the shit stung out of me but I was laughing about as hard as I could because I'd never seen my brother move so fast.

    And do any of you know a person with a true phobia related to animals or insects?

    My mom is a true arachnophobe. She was bitten by a black widow spider as a child. She avoided all spiders like the plague. Monk likes when I tell the story about when as a teenager, I threw a bunch of fake spiders on her when she was in her walk in closet. She jumped about three feet of the ground and gave me a good slap. I totally deserved it. And it was probably the worst thing I've ever done. Sorry Mom.

    Wow. Some of these insects will follow you for miles I hear. And then they say don't jump in water because they will just wait for you. I don't know if that's true but jeez.

    Also, what's the difference between hornets and yellow jackets?
