Hornet King Wasp Q + A video! Wasp Nest Removal EXPLANATIONS

  • Published: 08 November 2019
  • Hornet King Wasp Q + A Video! Narrowed down from 270+ Questions down to 11! Here are the 11 questions and timestamps to go the question you are most interested in!

    1. 00:30 "The science behind stings! What causes some people to be allergic"

    2. 4:12 "Do you feel pain from wasp sting? Do you develope immunity to venom after many stings?"

    3. 05:41 "Did you have another career path in mind before becomming the Hornet King?"

    4. 10:28 "Are you concerned that the wasps you let build nests near your home might end up creating more nests near your home come next year?

    5. 11:17 "What does your daily routine look like and has it changed at all by focusing more on YouTube?"

    6. 12:33 "Being a musician yourself, who are some of your favorite artists or bands? Which ones, would you say,
    have been the most influential to your own music?"

    7. 13:43 "How do you decide what to remove and to relocate other nest and do you have other locations you move them to? Also will other colonies attack other colonies?"

    8. 21:12 "Recently I’ve seen other channels pop up like yours, obviously yours will always be the best. But how do you feel about these other wasp
    removal channels that are following suit? Some of them don’t even care for the wasps they just straight up want to kill them. It’s a
    little off putting compared to your educational approach."

    9. 23:47 "What’s the one thing you most wish people would understand about hornets?"

    10. 25:07 "I’ve always wondered how the cells that the larvae are in get that hexagonal shape. That’s always amazed me. Each one is so perfectly made.
    Why are they not circles instead?"

    11. 26:13 "How did you get in to wasp removal?
    Do you have angry neighboors for all the wasp nests you bring by? How did you get the idea feeding the chickens wasp grubs?"

    Thank you to everyone who had submitted questions! I wished I could anser them all in the video, but as you can see, time constraints limited the number I could answer with decent detailed answers!

    If you guys enjoyed this video and wish for me to do another Q+A style video, let me know!

    I am also a RN of 32 years now. Been with a lot of dying people and I agree with you. You sound like you have a wonderful point of view and your heart for sick people is beautiful . We need more nurses like you. I am leaving due to ill health so it’s my turn to need good nurses.

          Where’s the liability in moving a nest? What if someone gets seriously injured by the relocated nest?

            A quote from "Happy Gilmore" - "He shouldnt have been standing there..."

            All nests I relocate are placed on my property or my parents property. If someone is stung, the more pertinent question is, "why are you on my property?".

          Do people volunteer their home yard or properties for the purpose of relocations? Like for those removals too far from you or your folks, where the colony wouldn't survive the trip? I do get that a colony has to meet requirements in order to have a high probability for success.

            Man, you just made removing wasps a form of education and entertainment! Btw is the squirrel your pet/ did you adopt it / what's it's backstory? Side note: Chickens love red pearl onion skin and red pearl onions on general !

                  Would or what do u suggest to get a “wild” squirrel to trust you? We have a squirrel that has been at our house every day for at least 2years.We call him Gimpy cause he is missing his flat part of his Rt foot. The wound is not recent , must’ve been when a youngster.We don’t want to bring him only ask to get him to trust us. Thank you

                    Idk. I raised Humphrey from a 3 week old abandoned baby. I'm not a squirrel whisperer lol. He trusts me because I'm his mama.

                    Setting food out for the squirrels and being outside while they are eating and making your presence known and non threatening will help break the ice. Then slowly move the food closer to your home and get them comfortable being closer to you. Any scaring them while they are near you will set you back miles in one moment from the inches of progress you made in weeks.

                  I don’t know if this question has been asked how much times have you been sting? (Plz do hart and check my videos too :’3 )

                      Very nice video, HK!! Your answers were well thought out. I’m guessing most/all the 15 dislikes were from the folks who want every nest relocated. I’ve been thinking about this, I don’t know what the survival rate is for new queens, but a queen or two in a nest can create a massive number of queens who will create new nests. Left unchecked, the world would be filled with wasp/yellow jacket nests. So I don’t have a problem with your methodology. Lastly, I like several classic rock bands, but I’ll ALWAYS listen to and turn up a Beatles song!! Love ya, brother!!

                        Never ask a nurse a physiological question... also get some moisturizer for the razor burn. The camera reveals all.

                        The comb is hexagonal because it has less wasted space, but also used over squares or triangles because it creates a more sturdy structure :)

                          @Hornet King True :p I suppose they are studier than squares but have more volume than triangles so they are the perfect balance. I love your videos, keep it up from a fan in New Zealand!

                          Sorry, but triangle is the strongest geometrical shape. But, the hexagonal tube is certainly stronger than square and circular :-)

                          The Beatles will always be my favorite band! Let It Be is my all time favorite song. Apparently it’s been my favorite song since I was a baby. My mom told me that she used to play it for me when I would get upset and it would calm me down. That song still calms me down to this day. ❤️

                              Wow, that explanation of the sting reaction was really informative and in a manner easily understood. I got stung when i was around 11, on the thigh, and the swelling was fairly widespread and severe. I remember it was bad enough that i went to the hospital, but I'll be damned if I can remember what stung me lol so i just avoid all the stinging insects. I also remember being told that if i were to be stung again, the reaction would only get worse. That was over 40 years ago, and i haven't been stung since, so haven't tested that theory lol.

                                lol Song - Album - Film : If I Fell - A Hard Day's Night - A Hard Days Night. I seriously had to laugh, The Beatles are all I listened to as well. And then when I got a little older I also added Very old Kiss (per-1976) and even more so Credence Clearwater Revival. Incidentally, I left school at 17 and went back much later and became an Anthropologist! Keep on doing what you are doing, man! You are doing the important job by teaching people to not fear these animals, but to respect them and understand what they are doing for the environment. How people and the environment interact and impact each other, and that my friend is called Cultural Ecology :- )

                                    Another thing about the circles vs hexagons question... I believe hexagons take less material to make. So besides being a more efficient use of space, they're quicker and easier to build too.

                                    I'd be really interested to see if someone could do the math and figure out exactly how much more efficient they are. That's a bit beyond my abilities.

                                            You can’t rescue every hornet. You have a life too. That you relocate any of them is admirable and also feed the larvae to the animals you rescue. The respect you show to the littlest things that most people consider pests is just amazing.
                                            I never watch the other wasp channels, that would be cheating 🥰

I always thought a nest had one queen and when she dies another queen took over. It appears in the nest there are hundreds of queen cells. It’s it the survival of the fittest? Thanks again for your channel, my wife and I enjoy watching your videos. How do people find you to do a removal?

                                                This was such a great video!! You are such a sweetheart & so genuine. Your big heart shines bright in every video. I am also a nurse & when you were talking about appreciation of life seeing & helping others transition out of their life really hit home for me. That was such a beautiful way of explaining it & absolutely so true. I have worked in hospice for many years & people often tell me that they can’t understand how I can enjoy my job knowing that my patients are going to die. Well, we all are going to die at some point. And to have the honor & privilege to help someone who might be scared &/or hurting while they are in their final days is a very beautiful thing & a huge reminder everyday to love & appreciate that I have been given another day to tell my kids & my husband, family & friends that I love & appreciate them!! ❤️❤️ Thank you for your videos, and your big heart & all that you do for people & for the furry friends too!

                                                      I really enjoyed this. While I appreciate wasps I am a bit wary of them, like most folks. And I know people will occasionally, accidentally stumble on a nest and can get pretty severely stung as a result. So, what is the best thing you can do to rescue yourself or someone else in that situation?

                                                            Great Q & A, it answered some of my questions, especially about how you got started doing removals, and how you discovered chickens eat larvae. :-)

                                                            You do you, man.

                                                            Don't get into tiffs with trivial people in the comments lol if an argument lasts longer than 5 minutes, it's NOT worth explaining, because they're just trying to be difficult.

                                                            It's great you care so much that you feel like you should address it in a video, I'm just sayin' stay confident you're doing the right thing.

                                                            Someone who doesn't know what the HELL you go through every day shouldn't be allowed to offer any criticism lol as, "constructive," as they make it seem.


                                                            Edit; BTW, the chickens are one of the highlights of the show! (lol or channel or whatever) I was brought here by the hornet's nest removals, I stayed for the chickens! 👍😂

                                                              I'm so happy this channels flourishing the way it is. I love coming to see these vids, especially the shots of your folks woods. If I could ever get my life together, been unemployed and crushed by depression for so long, id love to live some place like that, do the stuff you do and live free, you seem so happy in so many vids and it's just a good vibe, save of course when you told us one chicken passed, was sad. Keep it up man
