This year with the long winter they didn't spray those fucks so they are more numerous than usual. Quite the nuisance.
Also ticks. Fuck them. While I'm pretty lucky and rarely have one I have to be constantly alert most of the year in the woods. One more reason to love winter.

Also these fucks:

DDT was the only useful tool against ticks. They managed to expel them from most of Europe, I think in the '50s and '60s. Then they realized that poison is poisonous. Now everything sucks. Blood.

They do. I don't what type of chemical they use it has some limited success. The harder stuff kills other arthropods which isn't a side effect anyone would prefer. And it can be bite back in our ass. Bees could die as well for example and them are extremely beneficial to us.

Afternoon mosquitoes aren't that bad -bulky and slow, they can be easily swatted. What pisses me off are the tiny and agressive morning flies, aswell as an even smaller species that can cross mosquito nets and attack your feet at home.
As I'm allergic to mosquito bites, my legs have always several wounds; they heal and I gain more of them at about the same rate.

That map seems wrong. Or kinda.
On that map the Carpathian basin is in that area however black widow isn't native here. On the other hand in recent years (I dunno since when) they seem to occur here and there, even in colder areas. On the third hand I found an article that says they are just mistaken with similar looking but harmless lesser known species.

Noone. I have been stung only once by that (as well as horse-fly like I mentioned above) again as a kid when I stepped on one so it was an accident, basically I provoked it.
I killed many tho since then but they rarely were hostile they were just in the wrong place in the wrong time (that is around me). I'm not afraid of them not even from European hornet. I know people who were attacked by them but again they tripped a nest over they were hospitalized after that.
I liek the black-yellow aesthetic of wasps/hornets.

While I wasn't addressed by this, those who have gardens for example can be contracted by that as animals (e.g. birds, hedgehogs, cats) can spread ticks there.

Bernd 06/04/2018 (Mon) 16:05:33 [Preview] No.16932 del
Also if you put your feet into the woods (which you should, Bernd, hiking is good for you) there's a chance you'll giving a free ride for a tick or two.

In some regions you can get ticks by just going into woods. Not all ticks are dangerous though, but it isn't fun.


t. person who visited forests pretty often in past but never got any ticks

I had none of these and also no other symptoms like fever, headaches etc. So I don't see a relevant probability of being infected by lyme.

It's either mosquitoes or ticks. They both should be exterminated with sterile insect techniques but liberals will protest in spite of their exploding populations.

Some birds eat ticks. An African species loves them and chickens eat them as well. Mosquito larvae eating fishes also exist so even in "natural" ways we could do something. On the other hand these type of defense I don't think could do anything that would have real impact.

Pictured mosquito is the Aedes species hailing from Morocco. Known to be a very aggressive and heavy biter, they are an extremely resilient invasive species.

I've only ever seen a hornet 1 or 2 times in my entire life I think. Newspapers were talking about Asian hornets coming here recently, but I think it's probably just a scare story.

Additional information: I meant this year. Just to be specific.
I don't think I saw hornets in my childhood they moved here around our place in the early 00's. Once I thought they moved under our roof but those were simple wasps.
Haha, Cetonia auratas always scare me as they can walk around the room in total silence and suddenly they lift off and their deep buzzing sounds similar to hornets and sometimes they took off under my fucking chair and I'm jumping up like an idiot.

>Cetonia auratas

Oh, they are funny. Some time ago one of them flew in the office and hit me in the head on full speed.

I often seen them in inverted condition on floor or ground, I don't know, maybe it is their dying stage or something, because when I take them and put in proper position, they crawl slowly and don't want to fly.

They are cute though. I don't really like insects, but this is rare insect that I easily take with hands.

You are lucky.

I've seen wasp nest in almost every country house where I was. Often it was located near exit or place where people gather, so flying wasps were common thing. They also like to sit near water sources because they drink water.

They aren't aggressive as people think though, but it is better to avoid them.

Really bad things happen as accidents, especially if you has allergy to wasp bites. My grandmother's sister was eating watermelon (wasps also love them), and wasp bitten her in mouth. She was very lucky that she stayed alive because you can easily die from asphyxiation in that case.

Common wasp bite is just painful. Bee bite is better, at least it less painful (but you need to remove the sting).

I've never seen anyone bit by bumblebee in my life, legends say that you literally need to squeeze them before they start self-defense. Fat lazy bastards.

Yeah, they fly like they don't care. And probably don't, their chitin is so hard I could craft a set of armor out if it.
I have similar experience with them I guess they have short lifespan.

Common English name is "rose chafer", wiki says that they love feeding on roses.

Here they officially called "золотистая бронзовка" (zolotistaya bronzovka, something like "golden brassy"), but people often call them "May beetle". But this is wrong because proper May beetle is different insect, Melolontha.

It looks similar to this:
They are all Scarabaeidaes, it seems they have numerous subspecies and I'm not sure about the main differences between them. We call this Anomala dubia "exciseman beetle" as it eats the leaves of grapes, basically reduces wine production. Worst enemy of all Hungarians.

We call them the same (darázs sound like garage), except we add horse to the name. But calling them simply the same isn't considered a mistake.

Slovenia isn't too famous of her wines tho they could produce quite drinkable stuff, I dunno. For real quality wines certain soil and micro-climate needed for example to aforementioned Tokaji wine is produced from the grapes growing on Tokaj hill which is a volcanic hill.
Just to remain on topic the Aproceros Leucopoda Takeuchi - which I think is a type of sawfly, but it does seem to me it is related to wasps as well - is a pest living on grape leaves.

No he doesn't post here anymore. Unless he uses proxy or tor but again I don't see any posts what would be typical of him. He is involved in running mewch and he is the BO of /int/ there and maybe of some other boards.
