That's a real menagerie there, Tex.


I basically only get lizards (both the standard grayish ones and some nearly translucent yellow geckos that've shown up over the last 10 years or so).

Ground Harnet. It took me 18 tries with marbles but I got him. They seem to fly similar to Bumble Bees they too are dificult to shoot out of the air.

Hey dgui, is Hornet that you speak of get up to about 2 inches long? If so we call them Cicada killer wasp in Texas, but I have never heard of one stinging a person. For those who don't know what we are talking about, you can see a picture on this link. - Tex

I've had multiple stings from Japanese giant hornets when I stood on a nest hanging my hammock. I took two to the head which distracted me from the third which had a proper good go at my ankle. I was unable to get my boot on and had to hike out to the hospital next morning in flip-flops.

I know about that gaint hornet! I am glad we don,t have him here. We do have a couple of very aggressive hornets, but they are a smaller type. -- Tex

The big ones mind their own business unless you give them cause to attack. Standing on their home and young 'uns apparently qualifies.
