I have a vision for a project but am unsure what would be the best means of achieving it. When I was a kid, I had a bug collection. My grandfather found a perfectly preserved wasp in his garage and saved it for me in a plastic syrup bottle lid. Over the decades all my other insect specimens crumbled (I was a kid, so I just had them loose in a school box without proper mounts) but this wasp is STILL intact and perfect inside the syrup cap more than 20 years later! My grandfather was very special to me, and I was toying with the idea of somehow metal plating this wasp to turn it into a pendant. I have no experience with metal working and don't own the stuff to do it, but i'm open to purchasing materials if my goal even seems realistic. It is a fragile exoskeleton, which probably limits what I can do in terms of casting I have wondered about brush coating it with fiberglass resin (to strengthen it) and then painting it with gold leaf, but many of the faux gold leaf paints out there are pretty crappy looking. Fearing I might just end up destroying the wasp, I've also thought maybe I should just get a Ryker mount and hang him with the rest of my legit insect collection, though it is not posed properly and is likely waaaaaay too old to be re-relaxed for posing. If any experienced jewelry makers, gold leaders, or entomologists have thoughts on how to successfully gild this wasp (or why not to), I welcome your ideas! Thanks in advance.

I am sick of the little pests, all doors & windows closed etc. all i want to do is sit out & have a relaxing beer occasionally & or BBQ without getting dive-bombed. Any body got any good ideas? P.S. i have a cat & veg patch so don't want to use poison powder.

The WASP (War Assault Semi-automatic Pistol, designed by oodalumps) has always intrigued me. I mean, come on, its a semi-automatic TR8, you can't go wrong with that mix. The gun is great. It is nice looking (well, I think it is, my mom said it looked like a backwards boat...), it is simple, it is almost foolproof, and it gets relatively good range for being a SA gun. It is not piece consuming, and it is heavily customizable. Features: Good range (for a semi-automatic gun): 20 - 30 ft. (it kinda depends on what ammo you are using, what type of bands you have, and how many) Easy trigger pull (compared to other semi-automatic guns) TR8 included Sturdy (except for the TR8 "bay," the area below the TR8) No bullet jams (I ran at least 100 rounds through this thing, and the only thing that jammed was the trigger) Semi-automatic mechanism could be used in almost any gun (The first 15 pictures are of my WASP [including one pic of oodalumps WASP], some of them may contain image notes if you want to know more about the gun.) After you have looked through the first 15 pics, you will notice that the background changes on pic 16. The gun in pic #16 is a WASP, but this WASP has a grey connecter magazine. Admittedly, this mag did not work the best, but it was a good try all the same. I believe the mag could have held 5 - 10 bullets, and would have been sweet if it had worked. Give it a try for yourselves. Now move on to pic 20. In this pic, you will see another WASP mod, but this mod has an oodammo rail that you could use. This rail was very crappy, and it needs some work, but, overall, I got it to shoot 20 ft. (not using oodammo). Enjoy! -The Red Book of Westmarch

I live in Massachusetts. I have an inground pool and the nest is under the edging of the pool. They're HUGE like 2 inches long and they're black with a blueish hue and frequently carry grasshoppers into the nest. I'm not sure but from researching they might be digger wasps That's what wikipedia says but when I google image search them it's not the same looking wasp. I've tried killing them with wasp/hornet spray but the dam things are invincible and the spray doesn't even phase them! Last year I killed a handful of them by stalking and smacking with my flip flop which isn't easy because they're fast and very aggressive. You can't get within 10 feet of the nest and they after you. I have dogs, curious dogs. And kids. Kids with friends that like to come swim but everyone's afraid to go out there because of these things. What's the right chemical to kill them with I've tried this wasp killer

This is a very weird looking insect that I found. It looks like it has the stinger and wings of a wasp, but its head and front legs are like a praying mantis. It is about the size of a wasp. Could someone identify this? Sorry if the pictures aren't too good, because it kept crawling away.

For the first time ever I have a wasps nest in my garden. they are in an old log in a pile of wood. They are not in the way, and after researching decided to leave them alone and wait for them to just die off naturally in winter. However I have a large crop of blackberries ripening, which I really want and I wondering if the wasps will hone on them when they are ripe. I can protect the berries from birds, but doubt if can protect them from wasps.

Hey guys, I decided to build the WASP yesterday, but without instructions, as KI is down/not working (why is that? It has not been working for the past 1 - 2 months...?). I used pictures from ~KGB~'s WASP and Raz1r Knex Bull3t's WASP (click on their names to see their WASPs. ~KGB~'s is down in the comment section of the link I gave you.) I ran into two problems that I think you guys could help me with. Problem #1 The mechanism: Where did I go wrong? Every time I pull the trigger it pushes the hammer backwards, but it never lets the hammer fly forwards to hit the TR8 mini-primers. What is wrong? Problem #2 The turret: How can I get the turret to auto-ratchet? What should I do? Help...! -TRBoW

The air conditioner is in second-floor window. Every few days one or two wasps (? paper wasps; lower New York) find their way into the room; these I kill. All other active wasps go in and out of the air conditioner on the outdoors side. Two years ago this same scenario happened ... I left them alone and read that they rarely inhabit the same nest the following year, which was true in my case, and therefore I vacuumed out the nest in the air conditioner and used it last year. This year they are back! How can I permanently get rid of them?
We have already tried with no sucess white powered pesticides & soaking them with vineager

So we have an inground pool with a wooden wrap around deck. These humongous black wasps with a bluish sheen fly around and are everywhere out there. We see them carrying grasshoppers and taking them between the wooden slats under the deck. We abandoned our pool early in the season because they are very aggressive. Obviously if we are out there we are swimming, walking on the deck, jumping, playing music and what not. This appears to annoy them. I cannot see any nests but there must be several down there because they go in all over the place. Help. What can I do to get rid of them so they don't come back next year?

Found randomly on Flickr:http://www.flickr.com/photos/donshall/3340181328/http://www.flickr.com/photos/donshall/3340184078/I just LOVE this! It looks like it ought not to be too difficult to make, if one has a junkyard to pull bits from.(The note on the chair's back says something about don't play on this as wasps have taken up residence.)

These bugs continue to come back year after year. They stay in a small are, but sometimes the area is the entire branch. They have come from one tree to another, by fence to garden. Nobody in the neighboor knows what they are or how to destroy them. The bee's and wasps love to swarm by them. I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado. They are gone now because of the cold weather, but sure they will be back next year. Last year they were really bad, this year not so much. Has anyone afer seen, and know what they are. They are some nasty bugs...
