I was just finishing up a project outside, and the last step was to spread some pine straw. There were two old bales of pine straw in front of the house that I had left over from last year. I grabbed the first one, no problem. I grabbed the second one, and things turned into chaos. At first I couldn't figure out what was happening, but after a few seconds it was apparent that I had disturbed a yellow jacket nest. I got out of there, far enough away that the couldn't call for reinforcements, and started killing them as quickly as I could. The got me good on the legs, flew up my shirt and stung my back and shoulders, and even got me on the beehind. Stinging insects, I got no use for them.
