    I pulled up a tree stump once and a bunch of whatever was in the roots flew onto my leg (I was wearing jeans). I looked down and saw 4 large black funnelwebs on my thigh. I was wearing gloves and quickly brushed them off. Changed undies.

    Check out the benefits of predatory wasp's. There's a whole lot more than meets the eye. Figs for example even.
    Wasp's ain't all bad.

    i was at carinda and a king brown came at me too, start of spring so it woke up very angry. i tried to get out of its way and it wanted to dance and give me a big kiss. Fortunately i was thrown a spade and i got him before her got me.
