BEE BEARD vs MAN BEARD?

BEE BEARD vs MAN BEARD?


– Coyote’s hair has migrated
from the top of his head to his face. Yes, yes it has. ♪ Fire, fire on the mountain♪ (fiddle music) And we are rolling. Welcome back to
the Base Camp set for another episode of
Howlin’ with the Pack. I’m here with the Coyote Pack. Boy, that’s kind of
a tongue twister, with a whole lot of
‘acks at the end. All right guys,
so today’s episode is gonna be a little different. I haven’t been inside the studio in a number of weeks. We’ve been out on a number
of different productions, and life has been
incredibly exciting. Now, you may notice the
beard on my face, right? It’s getting a little
longer right now, and it is summer and I
usually keep it short during the summer. But I get a lot of
comments about my beard, so we thought
today maybe it’d be kind of funny to do a
Coyote’s beard episode. And in fact I have an
entire list of comments and I guess just statements
from the Coyote Pack about my beard. Now today is extra special
because this episode is being brought to us
by Dollar Shave Club. “Please shave your
beard, this is not hate.” I think that’s probably when
I had a really long beard this past winter when we
started the Base Camp series. “Coyote’s hair has migrated
from the top pf his head to his face.” Yes, yes it has. All the hair from my
head has definitely migrated down onto my chin. “I can’t stop staring
at the beard.” That one comes in
from KINGShaleed. KINGShahleed, yeah
well, you can stare at the beard now too. “That beard does
not work for him.” Hmmm, okay well that person
then was argued with. “NO, no, no, no that
beard is absolutely epic. Do not shave that beard.” Hmm, okay, well maybe
I’ll stick with the beard, maybe I don’t stick
with the beard. You guys will notice that
from episode to episode my beard always changes length, and that’s of course
because my beard is constantly growing. Now sometimes we do episodes
in environments like the desert where it’s very hot,
very dry, very dusty. I try to keep the beard very
short and close to my face because it actually helps
keep me a little cooler. Now when we’re in
environments like Alaska, where it’s cold, oftentimes
I will grow the beard longer. I had sort of a mountain
man look going on when we did the Alaska episodes, that’s partially because I wanted to blend in
with the wolverine. Another comment here,
“Perfect beard.” And then of course this
one from Andrea2006 says, “His beard grew back?” Well I think the only
time I actually shaved the entire beard off was when
we did the Bee Beard episode. I think you guys all remember when I covered my face in bees, and then was stung
3o times in the face, and swelled up like
a giant potato. So why all the comments
about the beard? Okay, I literally, this
list goes on and on. I won’t keep reading comments
off of the beard page, but we thought it’s
kind of interesting because the beard
has become sort of a quintessential look
for me on camera. People also always comment
on how Mario has a beard. Are Coyote and Mario brothers? No, we’re not related
in anyway whatsoever, but we both have beards. Why doesn’t Mark have a beard? I don’t know, I think Mark has such good hair on
top of his head he doesn’t feel the
need for a beard. But anyways, check this out. This showed up in the
mail the other day. The only thing I removed off it was my actually address. Oh, it says “Someday I’ll
be another cardboard box.” That’s awesome. Dollar Shave Club recycles. But this little kit
here is awesome, and they just sent it to us. I’m gonna open it
up, and it says “Wow, you bought
some great stuff!” And there is some really cool
stuff inside of here guys. Now the first thing
that I’ll pull out is their quintessential
shaver, right? So this is a heavy
bodied handle. It’s got a lot of weight to it. And they also send you a
packet of razor capsules. Now obviously if
you’re a younger kid and you’re just
starting to shave you wanna be extra careful. If you’re a dad and you
already use these, fantastic. And if you see my face today, I’ve got a real nice, clean line that all came from a
Dollar Shave Club razor. Now one of my favorite
things, where is it here? Shave Butter. No, this is not butter
that you put on toast. I tried it, it does
not taste good. But what it is perfect for
is lathering up your face, and then shaving in
that perfect design. Right now I’ve got the
quintessential look, but I guess you could
shave lightening bolts, maybe some animal tracks. Or if you’re like Mario, sometimes he designs
dinosaur shapes in his beard. Actually I made that part up, but maybe if you guys
think it’s a good idea go in the comments section below and tell us why should Mario shave dinosaur
shapes in his beard. So basically what you do
is you squirt that out. Yeah, that smells amazing. You want your face
to smell good, you take some of this
and you just lather it on in the right spots. And then you get your shave on. And now I’m covered
in Shave Butter, so I’m just gonna go ahead
and wipe that on my pants, and we’re going to move
on to the next product. The next thing they have is the Amber Lavender Body Cleanser. I bet you guys didn’t realize the Dollar Shave Club
wasn’t just about shaving, it’s also about
keeping yourself clean. Oh yeah, yeah there we go. Oh, that smells good. Just like I’m used to. Well, yeah, I’m gonna just
wipe that on my pants too. I kinda can use it as
a detergent as well. Now the next thing that’s
in here, get ready for this. This is my absolute
favorite thing that Dollar Shave Club makes. They are known as
One Wipe Charlies. If you can use your imagination, what is something
that you might wipe with a One Wipe Charlie? Well when you’re out
in the wilderness, and you need to
make a number two, this is something that fits
perfectly in any backpack. And there you have it. That is all of the
items that come inside of the Dollar
Shave Club kit. So if you guys are
interested in getting your Dollar Shave
Club kit sent to you you can start becoming a
member of Dollar Shave Club. Now to do that all you
need to do is visit DOLLARSHAVECLUB.COM/COYOTE This is a special coupon
code that’s gonna get you guys hooked up today
with your starter kit. So I’m sure you guys have
lots more questions for me in the comment section below. Maybe some of those questions
are about the beard. Maybe it’s the fact
that I still have all of this Shave
Butter on my face, which actually is great. It’s sort of a
moisturizer as well, so it works into your
skin and then you smell extra delicious at the
end of your adventure. Well, I guess after
your shower adventure because I don’t
ever really shave when I’m out there in the wild. I’m Coyote Peterson, be brave. Stay wild. We’ll see you one the
next Base Camp Adventure. All right, that’s a cut. Hey Coyote Pack,
if you want to see the ultimate beard episode
make sure to go back and watch as hundreds of bees cling
to and then sting my face as I attempt to wear
the iconic bee beard. And don’t forget, subscribe so
you can join me and the crew on our next big adventure. (howling)

What If You Were Stung By The Most Painful Bee?


Have you ever come upon a small bee or wasp
and it scared you out of your mind?! It might feel silly to be afraid of such a
small insect, however your instincts are right on track… Sometimes the smallest little bugs are some
of the most dangerous! And that can include the bees and wasps that
are in your backyard right now! When you hear buzzing coming from a nearby
tree, you might immediately take notice. We really love honey, but nobody likes a bee
sting. While a simple bee sting from a honeybee is
unlikely to cause much harm, some people are allergic to a specific chemical in the bee
venom. They can have severe reactions to bee venom
causing them to go into anaphylactic shock that causes swelling and difficulty breathing. Luckily a quick dose of epinephrine through
an EpiPen can quickly counteract the bee venom… But if the person can’t get that dose they
could possibly die. But there are bees and wasps that are dangerous
even to those without a bee venom allergy. First off there’s the hybrid honey bee called
the Africanized honey bee. These bees are an invasive species that take
over local honey bee hives. These bees are more aggressive than your average
honey bee. If they perceive a threat to their home, like
a human accidentally disturbing the hive, the bees go into hyper defensive mode. They can swarm a person in cloud up to 60
thousand bees strong, stinging the victim thousands of times. The stings from these thousands of bees can
cause tissues and body functions to breakdown almost immediately. People have been known to suffer cardiac arrest
and die almost instantly from these bee swarms! If you see a hive, stay clear, and notify
animal control to take care of it. But even those bees are no match for the Giant
Asian Hornet. These guys are up to 2 inches in length and
eat bees for breakfast, literally. They are carnivorous species of hornet and
contain a neurotoxin that shuts down their prey’s nervous system. They are also prone to hyper defensiveness. If a person gets stung by even one of these
Hornets, they can go into anaphylactic shock and die. The deadliest of all though, is the Vespa
luctuosa, a species of wasp found only in the Philippines. It has the most toxic venom of any bee or
wasp and only a couple insects in the whole world are known to be more toxic. A single bite from this little wasp is extremely
painful and can lead to convulsions, your skin turning blue, and even death. Luckily for us they rarely build their hives
around humans so unless you’re walking through the Filipino wilderness you’re not likely
to meet one. Whether you’re allergic to bees or not though,
be careful. Some of them might be more dangerous than
you think so it’s always best to keep your distance and not take any chances. Even if you get a honey craving and see a
hive – under no circumstances should you disturb them. Leave it to the pros and both you and the
bees will be much happier. Thanks for watching and don’t forget to

STUNG by a GIANT HORNET!


(intense music)
(buzzing) – I’m Coyote Peterson, and I’m about to enter
the sting zone with the Japanese Giant Hornet. One, two, here we go, three. One, two, here we go, three. One, two, here we go, three. (suspenseful music) Oh searing pain! Absolute searing pain! (intense jungle music) (lion roars) There are moments
we have brought you on the Brave Wilderness
channel that the world will never forget. (grunts) Oh it’s stuck in my arm,
it’s stuck in my arm. (yelling and grunting) Then there are the moments that we know the
world is waiting for. I’m Coyote Peterson, and I’m about to
enter the sting zone with the executioner
wasp, here we go. But before we get there, first, I must face one
more horrific sting. Ah!
(grunts) The Tottori Prefecture is one of the most remote
stretches of wildnerness in all of Japan. And mysteriously hidden deep within it fog
covered mountains, a world of giants stalk
this ancient landscape. For days we searched in
every place possible. Yet much to our chagrin, it seemed as an encounter with
Japan’s most notorious insect would allude us. Then in our second to
last day in country, when it seemed as if
all hope was lost, the very encounter I
had been searching for presented itself in the
form of a giant hornet. (gasps) Hornet, hornet, hornet,
hornet, hornet, hornet, right there, right
there, right there, right on the edge of that weed, look at that, it’s huge, right there, right
there, right there. (suspenseful music) Got it, hornet! Hornet, giant hornet 100%. – [Cameraman] You caught one? – [Coyote] Yes, yes, yes,
yes, yes, hold on a second. Yes, right there, right
there, right there. – [Cameraman] Dude you got it. – Got it, hold on I’m
gonna put this Go-Pro down. – [Cameraman] Wow
that is a big hornet! – Where is it, where
is it, hold on. – [Cameraman] It’s right
here, it’s right here. – Right there, right
there, right there. Let me trap it up against
the front of the net. – [Cameraman 2] Where is it? – It’s tangled up
within all these plants. – [Cameraman]
Mario, look at that. – [Cameraman 2]
Where, where, where? – [Coyote] Look, look, look, it’s biting right
through the net. – [Cameraman 2] You
can barely see it. – Here let’s do this, I
gotta get it in the capsule. – [Cameraman 2] Let’s
get it in the capsule. – [Coyote] Hold on
a second, here, uh. – [Cameraman 2]
Do you need help? – Hold the end of that,
hold the end of that. Ah!
(mischievous laughter) Yeah you guys will be
able to see a lot better if I get it into here,
hold on a second. I don’t wanna get
stung through the net. Okay, opp. (suspenseful music) I almost got it. – [Cameraman] You’re
sure it’s a giant. – I’m 100% certain
dude, it’s huge, there’s no way this
is anything else. Look at it, it’s
biting onto the net. Probably chew right
through there if it could. – [Cameraman] Hasn’t stung yet. – Got it, got it, got
it, got it, got it. – [Cameraman 2] Let’s
take a look at it. – Look at that, that is it, yep. – [Cameraman] You got one! Man! – How about that right? Oh my goodness, look
at how big it is, my hand is shaking. – [Cameraman] How’d you find it? – It was just on top of
the plants, I saw it, it was about ready to
take off and I was like, (gasps) I don’t know if I got
the shot on the Go-Pro, just dropped it into the dirt, I just had to make
sure that I got it. I swiped down right on
top of those plants, got the plants, and got the
hornet at the same time. It is huge. Wow. I guess that’s why they
call it the giant hornet. Man, okay, well, we’re
starting to lose light, but we definitely still
have time to get the scene. Let’s hike back up this
way, find a flat spot. Yes! We have got the
Japanese giant hornet! Man! Ho yeah! (suspenseful music) There it is, the
Japanese giant hornet. And I would say the giant
is an understatement. Not since the tarantula hawk have we encountered a
more intimidating insect. Look at that beast. From its head to its thorax, down its legs, which end
in grappling hooked feet, and then of course, that
enormous pulsating abdomen. Everything about
this creature screams run in the other direction. Yet here we are, on the door
step of the executioner wasp. And what we’re gonna
find out today, is just how painful the sting
of this hornet really is. Now on the insect sting
pain index it only ranks as a two, can you believe that? On a scale of one to
four, this is only a two. Maybe its bark is
bigger than its bite. Or in this case I
should say its sting. Today, I’m going to be stung by the largest
hornet in the world. Alright, what we’re gonna do now is get a couple of
really cool B-roll shots, I’m gonna walk around,
address the Coyote Pack, and then, we’re gonna
enter the sting zone. (deep exhale) I am nervous. The Japanese giant hornet
is considered to be one of the largest stinging
insects in the world. This nightmarish creature is armed with a 6.25
millimeter stinger and it injects a venom
known as mandaratoxin in a high dosage that
can destroy tissue and attack the nervous
system of its victim. And while a single sting
is not likely to be deadly, over 30 people die
every year in Japan from taking multiple stings. (grunts) In most cases, these
deaths come as a result of anaphylactic shock. But no matter how
you break it down, this sting is
incredibly dangerous. (deep breath) That is a big hornet. That is a huge hornet. The biggest hornet on
the face of the planet. And I have a feeling
that the sting is going to be intense. Now it’s rumored that the sting
of this insect can kill you. Guys, a single sting
is not going to kill me unless I go into
anaphylactic shock. Now if you were to be
swarmed by 30 or 40 bees, and be stung repetitively, yes, there is a good chance
that you will die. Now I’ve also heard that
the venom is going to cook a hole in my arm. (deep breath) Not exactly looking
forward to that, but, it all depends on how my
body reacts to the venom. Everybody reacts differently, you guys have to remember that. So, I’m gonna go
through with this. I know a lot of you
are probably running to the comments section
right now saying Coyote you don’t
have to do this, you don’t have to do this, I do have to do this. We have climbed the
insect sting pain index, and this is the only
one guys, the only one that I think we just have to
find out how bad that sting is. It’s so big, it’s such
a dominant character throughout all of
Japanese culture, and certainly when it comes to
the insect sting pain index, I don’t think that we can
leave this stone unturned. So if you guys are ready,
I think the crew is ready. It is time to enter
the sting zone with the Japanese giant hornet. (deep breath) Here we go. (heavy breathing) Warning, never attempt to
recreate the following scene as a sting from the giant
hornet has the potential to be lethal. Alright guys, this is it, the moment that you
all showed up for. Now before we go
through with the sting, first let’s talk a little
bit about the safety. We do have an
epinephrine pen with us. Now a single sting from this
hornet should not kill me. However, like most stings, you can go into
anaphylactic shock. It just depends how your
body reacts to the venom. I should be just fine. I will experience
some pain, discomfort, potentially some pretty
extreme swelling, but I shouldn’t die
from a single sting. I do have my etymology
forceps with me, what we’re gonna do is get
the insect into the net and then I’m gonna
get it under control. Same way we’ve done all the
sting videos in the past, are you guys ready? – Sounds good, are
you ready to do this? – [Coyote] Here we go. – Alright. – Alright, net coming up. This is probably one
of the most risky bits, we do not want to
lose the hornet, and I do not want to
get stung too early. Okay I’m gonna
gently stand up here, put the basin of the capsule
at the bottom of the net, alright, and hornet is
going live inside the net. Let me get the platform out. Here we go, platform
is out of the net. And, come on guy, out you go. And, come on guy, out you go. Alright, hornet is out of
the capsule, there we go. (sighs) Okay, so I’m gonna
keep the capsule close, you guys know the
goal is to always get the capsule back
on top of the insect before it flies away, place that there
for just a second, and now it gets intense. I have to figure out the best
way to pick up this giant. I want to grab right onto
the back of its thorax behind the wings so
I have full control. Alright, you guys
got a good shot? Alright, I’m gonna slightly
have to maneuver myself just a little bit here. Ooo, it is not happening,
this is one angry hornet. Hold on, hold on, got it. (suspenseful music) Oh it’s turning,
hold on a second. (deep sigh) My hand is shaking. (grunts) Control your nerves Coyote,
control your nerves. My heart is racing a
million miles a second and I can’t keep my hand still, I’ll have grab onto
the insect, hold on. Ah, the hornet is actually
biting onto the forceps. (suspenseful music) Okay, I’ve got it, I’ve
got it, perfect hold, that’s what we want. (sighs) Wow, alright, everyone just
take a moment to soak this in, that is an enormous hornet. Look at its abdomen pulsating. You look at the mandibles,
those are used for chomping. I think I may also take a bite
during this video as well, which I’m kind of afraid of, and if you zoom in on the legs, you can see that they
have these little hooks, they almost look
like grappling hooks, and one thing that
also scares me there is the chance it’s
gonna latch onto my arm, and sting more than once. I can’t stop my
hand from shaking. I haven’t been this nervous
since the tarantula hawk. – [Cameraman] Sure
you wanna do this? – Yeah, there’s no
turning back now. Alright, you guys ready? – [Cameraman] Ready if you are. – I’m Coyote Peterson,
and I’m about to enter the sting zone with
Japanese giant hornet. (suspenseful music) One, two, here we go, three. One, two, here we go, three. One, two, here we go, three. (suspenseful music) (loud yell) Oh, the stinger’s
stuck in my arm. (loud grunt) (painful noises) – [Cameraman] How bad is it? – Oh man, wave of
dizziness really quick. (loud yelling) Oh, searing pain,
absolute searing pain. There’s where the stinger
went in right there, did you guys see how
slow the sting was? – I see blood. (painful yelling) Oh my gosh. (painful yelling and grunting) Oh my gosh. – [Cameraman] I know
it’s tough to describe, but you gotta
describe it for us. – Okay, okay, okay, okay. My hand is completely seized
up and locked in place. This is like the tarantula hawk, look at the swelling that’s
beginning to form on my arm, forearm is incredibly total, only about 45
seconds have gone by. – [Cameraman] Careful
not to go over this cliff edge by the way. Let’s move over there. – Back up, back up,
back up, back up. (painful yelling) – [Cameraman] You gotta tell
us if you’re in trouble. Are you gonna be okay? – When the stinger
went into my arm, I had this like wave, like a wave came over me
and I got super dizzy, almost didn’t feel
what was happening, and then the pain just
was like immediate, immediately searing. (slow motion yell) (grunting) – [Cameraman] Look at your
arm, oh my gosh, look at that, look at that. Wow, you are
swelling like crazy. He’s swelling up bad. (loud grunt) Hang on a second, let’s put a circle around
where the swelling’s at to see the progression of it. This is the outer, and then that is the immediate
right there. (loud grunting) – Oh man, not a two, far
surpasses the tarantula hawk. Far surpasses the
tarantula hawk. (grunting) Here, here, here, look at this, if I turn my arm sideways, look at the welt on my. (grunting) Okay, can’t touch near it, sharp shooting pain
if I touch near it. – [Cameraman] Wow. – Oh my gosh. – I [Cameraman] I can
see that your wrist is starting to swell, do you
wanna take your watch off? Need help? – I got it, I got it, I got it. Ah. (loud grunting) No relief yet. It’s just a matter of
harnessing the pain, controlling the level of pain, and, rolling around
on the ground and screaming at this point really isn’t doing me any good. Alright, let’s cut
cameras and come back in about five minutes. Let me get a drink of water. (suspenseful music) – [Cameraman] Alright man, well,
I can definitely see that– – [Coyote] Don’t touch it. – [Cameraman] I’m not,
I’m not gonna touch it. I just wanna show
everyone at home, the swelling has
completely gone outside of these initial marks, I mean, and I don’t think you’re
out of the woods yet, I think that’s gonna
swell a whole lot worse. Yeah, we are only 20
minutes in a this point. 20 minutes since that stinger went deep into my forearm. You can see the discoloration
in my skin there, the massive goose
egg that has formed, the venom has worked
its way up my arm. – [Cameraman] Can
you show us the lump, can you hold you arm up at all? Oh my goodness. Wow. – I’m sure you guys
wanna know how this feels as compared to some of
the other tops insects on the sting index. It blows the cow killer out
of the water, no comparison. It definitely trumps
the tarantula hawk. And we’re talking blood ant, I would definitely say that
at this point it is on par and in just one month, the episode you have
all been waiting for, the sting of the
executioner wasp will determine who the true
kind of sting really is. We’re gonna monitor this
sting for the next 24 hours, and see what happens, I can promise you this much, I’ve got a world of pain ahead
of me for the next few hours. Alright, let’s get an outro and get back down to
civilization, you ready? I’m Coyote Peterson, be brave, (sighs)
stay wild, we’ll see you on
the next adventure. Oh that was a bad one. (suspenseful music) The hours following
my brutal sting we’re some of the most
painful I have ever faced and my arm continued
swelling to nearly double its normal size. The trauma that my
mind and body endured, today seemed like a blur, yet when we look back, there is a strange
similarity to the scenario I faced with a bullet ant. Both insect’s stingers became lodged in my arm, and as a result they put me
with a higher dosage of venom than I had originally
intended to take. When I compare the
stings side by side, I am completely
honest when I say that the Japanese giant hornet is an overall more intimidating and overall more painful
sting than the bullet ant. Absolute searing pain. (grunting) – [Cameraman] You alright man? – Yep. There’s no question about it, through my personal experience, the Japanese giant
hornet ranks as a four on the insect sting pain index, and in this very moment, I consider it to be the most
painful sting in the world. But will it be able to
hold onto its prized title as the king of sting? Stay tuned, we all know,
what’s coming next. Hey Coyote Pack, are you excited for the
conclusion to my climb up the insect sting pain index? If so, learn more

Warrior Wasp Adventure!

Warrior Wasp Adventure!


(creepy music) – I just know that if
this is more painful than the Bullet Ant, it’s
gonna be one, rough evening for Coyote Peterson. (mellow music) What I’m gonna try to do is
see if I can get Harvester Ants on my hands and let them bite
and sting me for 60 seconds. If you guys want me to be stung
by the Bullet Ant someday, I think you have to
walk before you can run. (grunts) Ah, there’s
one in my neck. Mario, get the one off my neck. (suspenseful music) This is crazy guys,
this is crazy. My nerve’s going this
much for the Velvet Ants. I can’t imagine what
the Tarantula Hawk
and the Bullet Ant are gonna be like. Ow. (grunts) Oh my gosh, guys. It’s super bad. You could feel, go all
the way under the skin. This is the worst
sting I’ve ever taken. There’s no question ’bout it. It’s worse than a Harvester
Ant, it’s worse than a Fire Ant. Now they say that the
sting of a Tarantula Hawk, it’s like being
stunned with taser, all you can do is scream. (dramatic music) Ah. I can’t move my arm. (grunts) Guys, I don’t know. I don’t know, I don’t know. Actually seen the
Bullet Ant face to face, Coyote pack, it is
unbelievably intimidating. (dramatic music) (grunts) Oh, it’s sucking my arm. It’s sucking my arm. (grunts) It’s stinger’s into
my arm, look at that. Oh my gosh, oh my gosh. The Warrior Wasp is in
a league of it’s own. And it is rumored that
this does in fact have the most painful sting
in the insect kingdom. Whoa. (suspenseful music) That is an enormous nest
of angry Warrior Wasps. Stay tuned coyote pack,
the Warrior Wasp challenge is coming. (suspenseful music) The climatic end to my climb
of the insect sting pain index is just days away. Will the Warrior Wasp sting
be the worse I’ve ever taken? Stay tuned and in case
you somehow missed it, make sure to go back and
watch my painful encounter with the one and
only Bullet Ant. And don’t forget, subscribe. So you can join me and
the crew on this season of breaking trail. Two. Oh my gosh, this is it. Three. (animal howls)

How to Handle Your Dog’s Wasp or Bee Sting?

How to Handle Your Dog’s Wasp or Bee Sting?


how to handle your dogs wasp or bee
sting dogs are curious they love to run and chase things including insects which
in some cases protect themselves by stinging the dog multiple stings are
dangerous most of the time an insect sting is just painful and irritating for
your dog getting stung several times or stung inside the mouth or throat if
dangerous and requires a trip to the veterinarian bee and wasp stings are
poisons the two most common types of stinging insects are bees and wasps it’s
not the small puncture wounds that cause of distinct pain but the small amount of
poison that is injected the bee stinger is barbed and designed to lodge in the
skin killing the V when the Stinger detaches from the body wasp stingers are
not hot Klan are more painful and if provoked these insects can sting
multiple times most of the time dogs get stun on their faces from investigating
of stinging insects to closely a sting on your dog sensitive nose is
particularly painful some dogs may even get stun on the tongue or inside their
mouth or throat if they try to bite or catch an insect these stings can be
dangerous with subsequent swelling can close your dog’s throat and block his
airway watch for allergic reactions a severe
reaction can be caused by a large number of stings or by an allergic reaction
signs of a reaction include general weakness difficulty breathing a large
amount of swelling extending away from the sting size if your dog is having a
severe reaction you need to take the dog to a vet immediately a simple sting can
be safely left alone it should be bothersome only temporarily if a stinger
is still present try to remove it by scraping it with a fingernail or a rigid
piece of cardboard avoid using tweezers or forceps to remove it unless
absolutely necessary this may force more venom out of the
Stinger administer a remedy for the pains
applying a weak mixture of water and baking soda to the affected area will
help reduce the pain you can also wrap ice or an ice pack in a towel and apply

Is KILLER BEE Honey Dangerous?!

Is KILLER BEE Honey Dangerous?!


(bees buzzing) – [Coyote] Oh boy,
starting to get swarmed. Holy mackerel. Dude, you are like, covered
in bees right now, man. Oh my gosh, my legs are shaking. (percussive music) (tranquil music) – [Coyote] A light breeze
drifts across the desert sand as morning sun crests
above the mountains. All seems calm amongst
the rocky outcrops, yet nestled down between
the cracks and ridges, a powerful giant
quietly slumbers. To disturb this
creature by accident would be a literal nightmare. Disturb it intentionally
and you will likely seal your own fate. Oh boy, starting to get swarmed. Holy mackerel. – [Coyote] It sounds as
if I speak of a creature from a storybook, but
this is no creature of myth and lore. It is a very real animal
that, since the mid 1980s, has become one of
the southwest’s most
notorious threats. Killer bees. So, what is a killer bee? Well, to keep it simple,
it’s basically a hybrid between an African and
a European honeybee. They’re typically more
defensive, faster, and more aggressive
than other bee species. Tucson, Arizona is
just one of the places that has recently fallen under
the cloud of killer bees, and today we will
be working alongside bee specialist Chris Britton. Chris monitors several
beehives that exist naturally in the mountainsides, and our
goal is to extract aged honey from a wild hive so we can
compare it to his locally farmed honey and determine
which one is more delicious. Using a drone will
help us locate the hive and determine exactly how
we should approach it. This is an incredibly
dangerous mission, so to protect ourselves
from the thousands of bees that will be swarming
and trying to sting us, we will be wearing bee suits. We are taking extra precautions
by taping up the wrists and ankles to ensure the
bees cannot work their way into the suits. Okay, so, this is
the moment of truth. We are completely suited up. This is probably going
to be one of the craziest and most dangerous
things we’ve ever done on an episode of Breaking Trail. The following scene was filmed under the supervision
of bee specialists. Never approach a
beehive in the wild. – Okay, Chris, so this is
kind of our last checkpoint, about as close as we
feel comfortable getting without the bees
actually swarming out. Now, I’m looking at the
hive and I see there’s lighter-colored comb
on top, in the middle, it’s slightly golden,
and then at the bottom, it almost looks like it’s brown. What’s the best area for me to
extract comb and honey from? – We’re gonna go right to
the center of this hive. – Okay.
– So, not on the dark and not on the completely light. That light stuff is not
gonna have anything in it. At this present point in
time, the bees are working more into the layers of
comb, so you’re gonna go right to, basically, the
middle, where it’s a little bit golden, but it starts to
turn just a little bit, and there’s some capped
honey right there. It may be last season’s
honey, but it’s right there where the bees are going
to be working, and we’ll be able to just get in
there and grab a bunch. – [Coyote] Okay, cool. Well, I think at this point,
let’s get into the hive and get this honey. You guys all ready? Cutting into the hive causes
no harm to the bees, and this extraction method is commonly
used by honey farmers. In the wild, hives are
often invaded by animals, which, in turn, causes an
increase with productivity, and in a matter of
days, the hive will be completely reconstructed. Okay, I’m right
underneath the hive. Whoa. Look at that. Do not want to get stung. Bees are starting to come out. You can see all the comb here. – [Chris] And over here. – [Coyote] They definitely
know that we’re here. – [Chris] You hear ’em? – [Coyote] I can hear
’em, they’re going crazy. – [Chris] How hard is it? – [Coyote] Wow, it’s
hard, very waxy. Oh boy, starting to get swarmed. Holy mackerel. I’m nervous. You see, they’re trying to
sting in through the mask. (bees buzzing loudly) Here they come. This is the outer layer here. Dude, you are like, covered
in bees right now, man. – [Chris] We gotta hurry up. (intense music) – [Coyote] We are
absolutely surrounded by killer bees right now. Fortunately, they are not
stinging through the suit. I got a couple of
good pieces of comb, but I’ve already come out here. There we go, found
comb with honey. Some stingers are actually
getting through my suit. I am getting stung
at this point. Ow. Jeez, okay, alright, I’m
gonna cut out a big section of comb from right here in
the middle, can you see this? That is all filled with honey. I’m gonna cut through that and
we’re gonna get out of here. Ugh, it’s sticky! This is it, this is good honey! Oh, look at that! Okay. Woo! That is pure, golden honey! Alright, I’m gonna put it
inside the mason jar here. Yep, here, let’s
back up a little bit. I can’t even imagine what it
would be like to be out here and come across a
swarm like this. This could definitely kill you. We are probably surrounded
by 30,000 bees at this point. I mean, it’s absolutely crazy. They’re attacking the GoPro,
they’re attacking the cameras. – The microphone. – [Coyote] The microphones,
everything is getting bombarded by bees right now. – It’s hard to even
touch the camera. They’re just covered in bees. Like, you can’t even tip the… – [Coyote] It’s crazy. Alright, look at that,
that’s about what we want, right there. Woo, that is absolutely
filled with honey. So what are we
doing here, Chris? – I’m basically covering
the air with smoke, so that way we can actually
get the bees to change their pheromones so
you guys can walk away. – [Mark] ‘Cause they’ll
follow us to our car. – Oh, they’ll sting you
all the way to their car. Africanized honeybees
know no limits. – [Coyote] I can’t even
imagine what it would be like to be out here and come
across a swarm like this. This could definitely kill you. Wow. Well, we escaped the
swarm of killer bees. Now, the next step is to
compare the killer bee honey to European bee honey and
see which one tastes better. To the victor go the spoils. What you’re looking at
right there are two jars of delicious raw honey. Now, right here, we
have honeybee honey, and on this side,
the killer bee honey. Now, we certainly had to
go through quite the ordeal to get both of these honeys. They’re all in my face! We are absolutely surrounded
by killer bees right now. But it was totally worth it,
because this is the moment we have all been waiting for. The comparison between
killer bee honey and honeybee honey. Which one is better? You guys ready to find out? – [Mark] Oh yeah, I’m ready. Do we get to taste test also? – Oh, yeah, you guys are
gonna taste this too. Okay, I’m gonna start
with the honeybee honey. We take off the cap here. Wow, that smells
incredibly fresh. Big spoonful right there. – [Mark] Oh, wow.
– I just go for it, right? – [Mark] I think you
go for the whole thing. – Wow. That’s sticky. Oh, really sweet, I can
taste all those granules of honey, they’re starting
to disintegrate in my mouth. Wow. That is delicious, oh my gosh. That is an unbelievable honey. That might be the best
honey that I have ever had. Here, let me get a
little bit of this honey on the tip of the knife. Go ahead there, Mark,
just take a little squidge off there.
– [Mark] Don’t cut myself. – [Coyote] That’s good, huh? – Wow, you could eat that
straight, like, all day. – Wow, I took a big
spoonful of that. – [Mark] You feeling
the sugar rush yet? – Yeah, I think I’m about to. Now, this is what I’ve
really been excited about. Let me get a big…
– [Mark] Get a gooey one. – [Coyote] Hunk of it
out here, let me just scoop some out onto my hand. Yeah, I’m going full
Pooh-bear here, guys. Let me get my paw in there. Oh, yeah. I’ve always wanted to do that. Look at that honey. Look at the different
colors in the honey. You have the darker
honey, and you have the real light golden honey. Think it’s gonna
make me throw up? – [Mark] Nah, man,
it’s like candy. – Whoa! That is crazy sweet! – [Mario] Put the rest in there. – [Mark] Can you
do the whole comb? Hey, Pooh-bear,
how’s that taste? – Very sweet. – [Mark] Very sweet indeed. – This is almost making my
eyes water, it’s so sweet. – [Mark] Bravo, I’m impressed. That was quite the honeycomb
you just had there. – Let me wipe off my
face a little bit here. Little bit more presentable. Wow, that is so sugary! I’m gonna have a major sugar
high for hours right now. You guys wanna try this, right? – [Mark] Yeah. – Stick your finger out, there. Just wait ’til it
gets in your teeth. Soon as it hits your lips. – [Mark] Wow.
– [Coyote] Right? Now, both of these honeys
taste amazing, but honestly? I think the killer bee
honey is a little more tasty and a little more… Gave me a rush of
energy, like, the second that it hit my mouth. But I think both types
would be excellent on anything that
you put them on. Although, going to get
killer bee honey is something that I can never recommend
anybody out there watching ever try and go do. Probably the best way to do
it is to buy from a local honey farmer and have
something that’s pure and granulated, just like this. And you put it on toast,
you can put it on… You name it, honey goes good
on absolutely everything. Ahhh, I can totally feel,
like, a sugar rush coming on right now, that is crazy. My hands are so sticky. – [Mark] Hey, Pooh-bear. – What? – [Mark] You get enough? – No! How did that silly old
bear get his paw into that jar of honey all the time? – [Mark] He didn’t get his
paw stung by bees yesterday. – Yeah, I got fat paw right now. Watch this, two bee
honeys at the same time. (men yelling and groaning) Sugar rush! Full honey face. – [Mark] Mario, there aren’t
any bears out here, are there? ♪ Climbin’ in a honey tree,
Pooh bear, I know he’s out there ♪ It’s me and it’s you, oh
silly oh Winnie the Pooh – Well, I would say we
endured quite a bit to get both of these honeys up
close for the cameras. Aside from wearing the bee
beard, which resulted in me being stung 32 times, to
then scaling the side of a cliff to extract comb and honey
from a killer bee hive, we went through it all
to do this taste test, and at the end of the day, I
have to say that the killer bee honey is actually
the most tasty. I’m Coyote Peterson,
bee brave, stay wild, we’ll see you on
the next adventure. One more handful. Ooh, that’s some good honey. (inspirational music) There are many
misconceptions surrounding the Africanized honeybee. Or, as they have become
famously vilified by so many, as killer bees. Nearly all attacks happen
when a hive is accidentally disturbed, or a swarm is
provoked by a non-professional who is attempting
to exterminate it. And while many people
are stung every year, very few deaths are
actually reported. If you see a swarm or come
across a hive in the wild, quickly and quietly move
in the opposite direction. And if you are looking
for some delicious honey, well, my advice is
to support local and buy it from a honey farmer. If you thought getting swarmed
by killer bees was intense, make sure to go back
and see what happened when I tried to trade in my
fur beard for a bee beard. And don’t forget, subscribe! So you can join me and the crew on this season of
Breaking Trail! They’re all over my face! My eyes! Oh man, my face hurts. – [Mark] You should see the
sting you have in your neck.

STUNG by a YELLOW JACKET!

STUNG by a YELLOW JACKET!


(upbeat music) – [Coyote] Hold
on, oh it’s flying. Hold on let’s go back
towards the nest. No wait, wait, wait, don’t move. – [Mark] Did you get it? – Yes, yes. I’m Coyote Peterson, and I’m
about to enter the sting zone with the yellow jacket. Here we go. (yelling) (upbeat music) Today we are headed out
into the suburban wilds of Westerville, Ohio to search
for any species of paper wasp which can be carefully
caught and ultimately used to give me a good
series of stings. Welcome to another
day in the office for Coyote Peterson. – [Mark] Coyote, are we doing what I think we’re doing today? – Oh yes, today is
yellow jacket day. Now you guys may remember
a little episode called, “The Bullet Ant Challenge” where I was stung
by a bullet ant. (yelling) And then a subsequent
video called, “Bullet Ant Kryptonite” where I used a product
called Sting-Kill to help alleviate the
pain and the itching. A Sting-Kill absolutely
loved that video and then they came
to us and said, “We’d love to work with you
guys and do a sponsored video, but let’s get you stung by something a little
more commonplace.” You know, not many people
are running into bullet ants. So they said, “What if you
get stung by yellow jackets?” Now we all know that
yellow jackets can be found at your local park, maybe you
see them in your backyard, sometimes they even
get into the house. We know they’re angry, we
know they’re aggressive, and people are often
stung every single summer. So what we’re gonna do today is actually build a bug vacuum. (record scratches) – [Mark] A bug what? – [Coyote] A bug vacuum. Bear with me here for a second. So you see this? I found this online, right? – [Mark] Looks pretty cool. – Right, the Extreme Bug Vac. But unfortunately, I
have one opened up here. This is supposed to
have a lot of suction, Mark put your hand out. – Yeah, no. – Pretty sure that’s not
gonna catch us any hornets but what I love about this
is the plastic capsule. Check that out. It’s got this little
revolving door and you are supposed to be able to suck a bug in
there, close it up, look at it through
the magnifying glass and then of course it’s
go a little screen, so that the insect can breathe. What I wanna do,
is actually take this capsule from the bug vacuum and Macgyver something
with a real vacuum. (vacuum sucking) Check out that suction. – Oh yeah.
– Yeah. – [Mark] Suction power there. – Oh yeah, that’s
gonna catch a hornet. But what I need to do
is reconstruct this, where I’m gonna
actually cut the hose and duct tape the
capsule in between. Then I’ll be able to use
this end with the nozzle, which has great suction power. And then I think
we’re gonna be ready to go out and start searching
for some yellow jackets. Oh I almost forgot, I am gonna mount the
GoPro on it as well. – [Mark] So where are we today? We’re in Ohio, right? – We are in Ohio. We’re actually
right in my backyard here in Westerville, Ohio. And I actually put
in a phone call and email to a number of my
different friends in the area and I said, “Go out this
morning and look around near the eaves of your house.” You know where the gutter
attaches to the roof? “And let me know if you
see any wasps nests, hornet nests,
yellow jacket nests, anything that looks
like a stinging insect, let me know and we may
come and investigate it.” So we’re gonna kinda
go on a little bit of a field trip today guys, until we can find ourselves
some good stinging bugs. – [Mark] Are we testin’ it out? (vacuum sucking)
– Yep. (vacuum sucking)
– Yep. I think it’s gonna work. – Last step. (Mark laughing) Now it’s like a proton pack. (Mark laughing) Oh yeah, this thing is awesome. Alright, well if
you guys are ready, let’s go try to catch
some yellow jackets. – [Mark] Let’s do it. (Coyote cheering) – Alright, well we might as well check the park
that we started at. Great structures here
for us to invest. You see that all these
eaves and overhangs, perfect place for paper wasps. – [Mark] Now why do paper wasps
like these under hangs here? – Well because it’s a
great spot to build a nest. It’s out of the realm of
predators and the rain. See anything yet? (mysterious music) There are eight known species
of wasps that call Ohio home. And many of them
can be encountered right in your own backyard. However, unless they
are intentionally or accidentally provoked, your odds of being stung
are actually very slim. Let’s go this way. – [Mark] Come on Mario. – Well it’s a fun
day at the park. – [Mark] Yep. – On the weekend. – [Mark] Should’ve
brought a soccer ball. What do you see? – [Mario] Did you see
something fly out? – I did, I think it
was a honey bee though. Now honey bees, you often
times see on clover. Let me see, there’s
one right there. Look, look, look, look. That’s a honey bee. – [Mark] European honey bee. – Yep. Now that is
not what we’re after. honey bees actually have
fur all over their bodies, whereas yellow jackets
are completely bald. Bees also have barbs
on their stingers, so when you get stung by a
bee, it’s stinger gets removed. If you get stung
by a yellow jacket, no barbs, so it can sting
you over and over and over. If I was looking for honey
bees, we’d be in the right spot. But unfortunately, yellow
jackets do not pollinate clover. Alright, let’s keep lookin’. (mysterious music) – [Mark] So why are we
looking at the ground now? I thought we were looking up. – That’s a good
question actually. Oh. That could be perfect, I
see some ants in there. A lot of times yellow jackets will actually build
their nests underground. So if you see something
that looks like a mole hole, just respect it
from a safe distance because it’s possible
that yellow jackets have built a nest in there. A cavity in a tree like
this is also fair game. But there’s nothing
in this tree. Not sure we’re gonna find
anything in this park, guys. Might be time to
take a road trip, see where else we can
look for yellow jackets. You ready? – [Mark] The bug suckers
are hittin’ the road. – Oh yeah, vroom vroom. (upbeat music) Well it is 12:43, which means
it’s officially lunch time. And we have a new plan. – Searching for the
yellow jackets ourselves is not exactly
panning out very well. We found some nests
that were vacant, we found some honey bees,
and some bumblebees. But we haven’t found the
infamous yellow jacket. What we’re gonna do, bear
with me here for a second, is actually have a picnic. Because often times,
if you think about it, yellow jackets show up
when you’re at a picnic. So I’m thinking if we get some
soda pops and some ice cream, we hang out in the sun,
maybe these stinging insects will come to us and
we will then be able to use the Bug Sucker 5000 to
just sit there and just go, vroom, and suck ’em up. Give me this, I’m gonna go look
in the garbage can right now and see if there
are any hornets. Guys, we are really lookin’
hard for these hornets but you know what, they
empty their trash a lot. Check this out. There’s like nothin’ in there. Can’t exactly find hornets if there isn’t a bunch
of sticky stuff around. And what Mario did was, he put, look at that. Ice cream in the
grass on top of a lid. Maybe that will
bring in the hornets and the yellow
jackets, and the wasps. I don’t know, I guess
we’ll see what happens. – Mmm. – [Mark] Pretty good, huh Mario? I’m enjoying mine. – It’s a beautiful
day for a picnic. – I’ll see you
then, alright bye. – [Mark] No yellow
jackets though. – Guys. – [Mark] What’s up? – We might be in business. I just got off the phone
with my friend, Jasper. Now I know at the
beginning of the video, I kinda made a joke and said, “Yeah I sent an email and
texts to my friends that live “in the area and I
told ’em to go outside “and check around their houses “to see if any yellow
jackets were hanging out.” Sure enough, my
friend Jasper went out and he said right
on his back patio, there’s a little nest and
there are three yellow jackets. And I said, “You’re sure?” He said, “Well, they’re
yellow and they’re black “and they look like
they wanna sting.” So, I think we may
actually be able to put the Bug Sucker
5000 to the test. You guys ready? – [Mark] Let’s do it. And can we bring
our treats with us? – Oh of course. – Yeah. – Let’s catch some
yellow jackets. Alright guys, well we
are at Jasper’s house. Now he has asked to
not be on camera, because he’s not used
to being on YouTube. So you won’t get
to meet him today, but he has given us permission
to go out on his porch and scout for these
yellow jackets. If they’re there,
we’re gonna use the Bug Sucker
5000 to catch them and then go to a
controlled environment so that we can get me stung. You guys ready? – [Mark] Sounds like
a plan, let’s do it. – Gear up, you guys
grab the other cameras and we’ll be ready to go. – [Mark] You look happy. – [Coyote] See that
corner right there? – [Mark] Uh-huh. – That is a small nest and there are two
yellow jackets. Now Jasper has provided
us with a step stool. He was thinkin’ ahead. So I’m gonna use this step stool and get up close with
the Bug Sucker 5000. You guys ready? We’re gonna have
to do this quick ’cause I already see
that they’re on the alert with their wings
kind of propped out ready to swoop
down and sting us. So we really just
have one shot at this. Okay so what I’m gonna do,
I love my Ghostbuster pack, but to really make this
work I do have to take the Bug Sucker 5000 out. – [Mark] The moment we’ve
all been waiting for. – Let’s put it this way, it’s either gonna work, or
we’re all gonna get stung. (vacuum sucking) – [Mark] Move fast. (vacuum sucking) Did it work? – We got one of ’em in there. – [Mark] Oh there’s
still one on the nest. (vacuum sucking) – [Coyote] Get the net,
get the net, get the net. Oh it’s flying. Hold on, hold on let’s
go back towards the nest. Wait, wait, wait,
wait, don’t move. (vacuum sucking) – [Mark] Did you get it? – Yes, yes. – [Mark] Shut the
door, shut the door. (laughing) It totally worked.
– Look at that. Totally caught the
yellow jackets. Both of ’em, just like that. (cheering) The Bug Sucker 5000 pays off. Can you guys believe that? Holy mackerel, we caught ’em. Wow. That was crazy, the one
was actually climbed onto this thing and I was like, “Uh, oh. We’re gonna get stung.” I was like, “Get the
net, get the net.” But then it went
back up to the nest and sure enough, got it
inside of the capsule. – [Mark] So alright
Coyote, now we have to go to where we’re
gonna get you stung. Not at Jasper’s house. – Yeah, no we’re gonna go
to a controlled situation, and we’re gonna get
these yellow jackets out of the little
capsule and get me stung. But what I’m gonna
do for transport, is not take this hose apart. Now I’m actually just
gonna place it inside of the bug net just
in case they get out. And just like that,
we’re ready to go. – [Mark] Nice. – Awesome, high fives guys. (laughing)
– That totally worked. – That’s so cool
that that worked. – [Mark] That totally worked. Boom. – Alright guys, and we’re back. Now we do have the
yellow jackets on hand. But first let’s
talk about the kit that I have here on the table. Now as always, with
these sting episodes, I have my trusty
entomology forceps here. I’ll be using this
to actually hold one of the yellow
jackets against my
arm to induce a sting. And just in case something
goes horribly wrong, as always, the epinephrin pen. – [Mark] Now do you think you’re
in the clear at this point? You’ve been stung a bunch. – I have and you never know. Every single insect
sting is unique and you never know how
your body will react. Even a yellow jacket can force
you into anaphylactic shock. So I always have this just
as a safety precaution. And of course, the star of
today’s episode, Sting-Kill. Who probably is
sponsoring this episode. Now what we’re gonna
do after I’m stung, is try out both of these
products on the sting, to make sure that it can
relieve not only the pain, but also the itching that’s
gonna come after the fact. You guys ready to see
the yellow jackets? – [Mark] Let’s bring ’em out. – Alright, well they
did transport safely
inside of the net and still inside of
the little capsule. – [Mark] Pretty happy they
didn’t escape in the car. – Yeah that would’ve been a
bad situation, wouldn’t it? All of us in the car and then
yellow jackets flying around. And sure enough there they
are inside of the capsule. Now what I need to
do is actually remove the hose from the capsule so we just have
this individualized. And then I can carefully get one of those yellow
jackets out of there. Now here’s a really interesting
little fact to remember, all hornets are
technically wasps, but not all wasps are hornets. How about that? And anything that
is black and yellow is technically considered
a yellow jacket. – [Mark] So what do we
have, what did we find? – This I believe, is what’s
called a European paper wasp. But because it’s
yellow and black, we’re just generically
calling it a yellow jacket. – [Mark] And is this
what we find at picnics? Is this what’s swarming
us when we’re trying to eat our ice cream? – No, that is usually a hornet. Now a hornet has a much
stockier looking body, a thicker abdomen and
a narrower thorax. But these ones look
just like wasps. You see the very pointy wings,
if you kind of see there. Do you see where
the thorax leads into the abdomen right there? It’s very narrow and indicative
of being an actual wasp. But I think at this junction,
what we’re ready to do, is bring the bug
net back into this, place the capsule inside,
and work on getting one of these yellow jackets
out of the container. You ready for that? – [Mark] So what’s
the process here? You’re gonna let ’em
go inside the net and then grab them
with the forceps? – Yeah, here’s
what’s gonna happen. So I’m gonna place
the capsule down inside of the net like
this, keep it contained. I’m going to open the capsule, hopefully only let
one of them out, close it back up,
remove the capsule, and then go in there with
the entomology forceps, to pick it up, bring it out,
and place it on my forearm. (suspenseful music) I’m Coyote Peterson,
and I’m about to enter the sting zone with a
yellow jacket, here we go. One, (breathes), two, three. (suspenseful music) Ow. – [Mark] Did you get there? – [Coyote] Got me there, yeah. (suspenseful music) (yelling) – [Mark] Did you get it? – Yeah it got me twice. Ah. Here we go. (suspenseful music) (yelling) – [Mark] Was that the worst one? – [Coyote] Yeah that was
the worst one so far. – [Mark] Are you good? (yelling) – He got the stinger all the
way inserted into my arm. Oh my arm’s startin’
to hurt a little bit, hold on, let’s do this. We’re gonna get back
into the capsule. – [Mark] Gonna lay it back. (breathes) – Ah, yep there you have it. You see all those welts? I took several stings
all right in that area. And look at this, there’s
a lot of red coloration developing right near the veins. That is really
interesting looking. And it burns and it’s really
warm, really warm right now. Honestly, it’s hot
to the touch right? – [Mark] Yeah you can
definitely feel the swelling. – Yeah, now it was
not nearly as painful as any of the other
stings I’ve gone through. I was actually able to keep
the yellow jacket on my arm as it was inflicting stings. It did get me one time pretty
good right at the end there, and I had to let it go. Of course we got it safely back into the capsule, as
you can see there. There they both are, they’ll
be released here shortly. But what we wanna
do now, is actually use the Sting-Kill products to see if it will alleviate
some of the burning in my arm and of course the itching
that is almost certain to come if I don’t use the
Sting-Kill ointment. You guys ready for that? – [Mark] Let’s do it. – [Coyote] Okay. – [Mark] Well which
one do we want? Do you want the capsules
or do you want the? How about you take both. Let’s talk about both.
– We’re gonna give a shot at both. So this is the Sting-Kill wipe. Often times used for
anything from a bee sting or a wasp sting, even a
mosquito bite, even a jellyfish. If you guys are on the
beach and you’re swimming and you run into a jellyfish, this is perfect for that. So what I’m gonna do, is
I’m gonna open this up. I’ll tell you what, I keep
myself pretty well composed in a lot of this, but
now that the pain’s actually starting to
set in my arm, I do, I get a little bit light headed. So the Sting-Kill wipes
have a maximum strength mix of benzocaine and menthol and
I actually really like these. They’re neon green, looks
like Ninja Turtle Mutagen. Check that out. And wow that is a strong
smell right there. Alright I’m gonna put that
on the sting, are you ready? – [Mark] Yeah sure go ahead. – Oh wow, it’s cold. The menthol definitely
cools it immediately. (sighs) Yes.
(laughing) Wow that really does have a pretty incredible
cooling effect. Now similar to the bullet ant, I was in a lot of pain
after that and it did help, but of course the
bullet ant pain eventually did come back and
lasted for nearly 36 hours. I’m hoping that this
relieves much quicker. Now I do love the wipes. And I carry the wipes in my
pack, but this right here, the sting kill capsules.
– Those, I like those. – Yeah these are my
absolute favorite. Okay let me open one up for you. Now they are individually
wrapped, see this, very cool. And all you have to do is pop
the back end out like that. And inside here is a
little glass capsule within the plastic. So all you have to do, this
is my favorite part, ready? (glass breaks)
(laughing) Shatter the glass on the inside that has this
little cotton swab. – [Mark] It’s
strangely satisfying. – I know, it’s like, “Oh
here comes the ooze.” Yes, ah. (laughing) Oh that is my favorite. And that real thick
serum right there is literally
instantaneous relief. I personally love
to just do this, dab it right on the sting zone. Wow. And as you can see,
there is more liquid here than you get in the wipes. So if you have a
really bad sting, or you’re stung multiple times, I definitely recommend going
to the Sting-Kill capsules, ’cause as you can see, look
how much of the ointment is actually coming out there. – [Mark] Okay, so once again,
Sting-Kill saves the day. (breathes) – Yes. Sting-Kill
has saved the day. My arm feels a lot better. In fact, there’s also a little
bit of a numbing agent here, so I can’t feel any of
the pain at this point. Wow, arm is a little bit stiff, but hopefully this
formula will also reduce any potential itching that’s
gonna come down the road here. And I know you’re
thinking to yourselves, “Coyote, those were
simply yellow jackets. “And you’ve been stung
by tarantula hawks,
and bullet ants, “and hopefully soon
warrior wasps.” But keep in mind guys,
that the yellow jacket is something that is
right in your backyard. It’s something you
can easily come across and something you definitely
have the potential of being stung by. Now if you are
unfortunately stung, remember, Sting-Kill is
definitely gonna help you out when it comes to
alleviating that pain and any potential itching. Alright guys, well
I think it’s time to release the yellow
jackets back into the wild. But before we do,
I just want to give an extra special
thanks to Sting-Kill for supporting this episode and of course, for
keeping us kitted up with sting ointment, when
we’re out there in the field. I’m Coyote Peterson,
be brave, stay wild, we’ll see you on
the next adventure. It is not often that an
animal like a yellow jacket is safely relocated from an
urban setting to a wild one. As most human
encounters usually end with the insect being
sprayed and killed. I know this sounds strange, but
it truly made my heart happy to know that this
beautiful pair of wasps will now have the chance to continue building
their nest in the wild. No matter what, always
admire these insects from a safe distance. However if you are
stung, all you need to do is visit your local pharmacist, where you are likely to find
the Sting-Kill products. And whether you use the
sting wipes or the capsules, both are armed with
a maximum strength benzocaine and menthol formula that is certain to
provide fast relief to the pain and itching. For more information,
visit Sting-Kill’s website to connect with the
brand for special offers. If you thought
(yelling) getting stung by a yellow
jacket was intense, (yelling) make sure to go back
and watch the episode where I applied
Sting-Kill to help alleviate the searing pain
of the bullet ant’s sting. And don’t forget, subscribe. So you can join me and the crew on this season of
Breaking Trail. What I’m gonna do
is open this up, and let’s see if
the sting wipe helps (sighs) to cool off my arm. This is nice, these are perfect. This could fit right
in any hiking backpack. (coyote howling)

STUNG by a WARRIOR WASP!


(dramatic music) (screaming) (suspenseful music) (roaring) (water splashing) – [Coyote] The insect
sting pain index needs no new introduction in relation to the
work that we do. My climb towards its
summit began with a small creator known as
the harvester ant. This experiment
into what happens from an onslaught of
stings, opened the door to a world of pain, that
I would attempt to endure in the name of
education and science. Ow, there’s one on my neck. Maurio, get the one off my neck! If you are watching this video, there’s a good chance you
remember the velvet ant, also known as the cow killer. This wingless wasp
is famous for having the largest stinger
in the insect kingdom. A sting from that
creature was intense. It didn’t end there. This is the worse
sting I’ve ever taken! Oh my gosh guys,
this is super bad! The tarantula hawk
delivered as promised. With a tidal wave of pain,
that literally put my arm into a state of paralysis. I can’t move my arm! And finally came the
moment that the world had been waiting for, the
one and only bullet ant. Ranked as having the
most painful sting in the insect kingdom,
it seemed as if I had conquered the sting pain
in the next mountain. (shouting gibberish) I had reached the summit. I had done it, or had I? Whispers began to drift amongst
the YouTube comment section. Questions began to arise, as to whether or
not the bullet ant is truly the king of sting! (screaming) It’s burning hot! It’s getting worse! Hold on, hold on! These whispers turned
into a haunting echo. What about the warrior wasp? Coyote have you heard
about the warrior wasp? Are you going to be stung
by the warrior wasp? Warrior wasp, warrior
wasp, warrior wasp! (dramatic music) That is an enormous nest
of angry warrior wasps. Man, they’re a lot higher
up there than I thought. This is gonna
definitely be tough. Think again, double check. Yep, those are warrior wasps. A hundred percent, and
that nest is so big. There are probably
thousands of them in there, all inside the walls. All it takes is a little
disturbance from them to literally spill out
and swarm like mad, and they’re incredibly fast, much faster than your
typical paper wasps. The local expert that
tipped us off to this field, where he said, “Yeah, I’ve seen
warrior wasps there before.” Actually at one point,
throw a rock through a nest and I was told that
they spilled out of the nest so fast,
he barely even had time to think about running,
let alone making an escape to try to get to his vehicle. And in the process he
was stung multiple times and had to go to the hospital. We do know they’re
incredibly fast, and incredibly aggressive. So Mark and Maurio are
gonna actually set up a mosquito net here underneath
the overhang of this tree. Now that will hopefully
keep you guys safe and out of the sting
zone, ’cause as we know the sting zone goal with
this is simply on my forearm, not all over our bodies. I’m gonna be wearing a
bee suit, so hopefully that will protect me
as I go in to extract one of these ornery
little insects, and with any luck, we’re
gonna get one up close for the cameras. None as one of the most
aggressive paper wasps species in the world,
these beautiful insects carry the warrior moniker,
from their commitment to attacking anything
that disturbs their nest. However, very few people
have ever been stung by one of these insects,
because unlike normal people, wasps species, they often
build their massive nests high up in the
trees of the Central and South American rainforests, a place where humans,
virtually never encounter them. Let’s go catch a warrior wasp. Alright guys I think I’m ready. Let’s get you tucked
underneath the net here. Now in the event,
that I am swarmed, it is best for you guys to
just stay completely put, and underneath this. Wrap yourselves up
as tight as you can. It’s a good chance they’re
not gonna get through there. – It’s a mosquito net,
so all the webbing’s very tightly wound. – [Coyote] Yeah. – Nothing could really
get through this, but still it’s gonna be a
pretty nerve wracking experience just to get swarmed
by the most painful stinging wasp in the world. Alright. – [Coyote] Are you guys ready? – Ready.
– Ready. – Good. – Alright guys, I am now going
to slowly approach the nest, and the goal is
going to be to just hold the net up in the
air and see if I get wasps to actually come to the net. If I am swarmed it is gonna be
one incredibly bad situation. I’m very close now. We’re all down on the low end. Oooh, its gonna be
swarmed around me. I hear a couple them movin’
around me left and right. My tactic was simple. Coax a single wasp from the
nest, using my extendable GoPro arm, and then
quickly swipe it up, using my entomology net. This was primed to be one
of the most dangerous animal catches I had ever attempted
as disturbing the nest could literally mean thousands
of these fearless warriors swarming me and the crew. Okay, I’m going to cut
this hand-held camera, and go for a catch. Here we go. (suspenseful music) (buzzing) I got ’em, I got ’em, I got ’em. I got one! I really got one, a big one too! Whew! Holy cow, that totally works. Okay there it is, right
there in the net, you see it! And what I did is I just
provoked one off the edge with the (faint speaking) we
got it right into the net. Check that out, wow, okay! Now this is the difficult part. I need to safely get
it out of the net and into the (faint
speaking) one second here. Oh man, my arm is shaking. That was the most perfect swipe, I could have possibly attempted. Nothing got scared
and there’s a wasp on the edge of the net. I just (faint
speaking), it came off, one swipe and I had it! Hold on a second. (suspenseful music) Yes! There it is, wow! Wow, there we have it! That is the warrior wasps. Oh my gosh, that
is a large wasp. Wow, I was excited to catch it. Now I realize I have
just sealed my fate. That is crazy, whew! Look at the abdomen
on that creature. Whew! Well, part one of this
mission is in the capsule. Part two is to get me stung. Oh, I have a feeling
this maybe just as bad as the bullet ant. (suspenseful music) Just based on the
knowledge that these are extremely aggressive,
I have a feeling that the sting is going to
be unbelievably painful, but I am mentally prepared
to take the sting, and I know this is the
moment that everybody’s been waiting for. We thought that I had climbed
the insect sting pain index, and reached the summit, and that was it, the
bullet ant was it. But, of course, we all knew
that we teased the warrior wasp at the end of that
episode, and ever since you guys have been
asking for it, so today, Coyote Peterson is
going to deliver. Here we go. (operatic singing) (leaves crunching) There it is. That is a warrior wasp. Now the ultimate question
that we are answering today, is will the warrior wasps sting, be more painful,
than the bullet ant? Oh, I have to just
sit back for second, and admire this creature. How could something
only that big, about an inch in
length possibly contain such a potent sting? Look at that iridescent blue
coloration on the wings, and its abdomen, almost looks
as if it’s covered in velvet. You’ll notice the body
structure of this wasp is very distinct. Of course, it has the
head, it has a thorax, and then a very,
very narrow space, between its thorax,
and its abdomen. Now one thing that I
did notice when we saw these out flying
around the nests, is when they fly, they
actually turn their abdomens upwards to a point in the air. Very different looking
than other wasp species that we see flying around. It’s interesting that this
thing looks like a warrior, and when all of
them are together and they’re on the
outside of the hive what they will do
to ward off anything that’s thinking about
getting into the hive is they will go boom, boom,
boom, boom, boom, boom, and sometimes they are
actually called drumming wasps, because they beat
their wings together, all in unison and that’s where they get the name warrior wasps. It sounds like
soldiers marching. So when I look at this creature and its fierce appearance,
definitely reminds me of one determined warrior. And you know the other thing
that’s real interesting about these wasps is they
have massive front mandibles. Now this is a species that
will kill caterpillars, and bring them back
to feed their young, but they mostly feed
on nectars and sugars. So this is not a
creature that’s out there hunting for self, only
hunting for its young, but those front mandibles,
I can easily see be used to decapitate or
kill something like a caterpillar or a grub. Whew, it’s an intimidating
face on that creature. Almost looks like the
face of the bullet ant, but, of course, it has wings, and a slightly different
body structure. This is the only time, I
have ever seen a blue wasp. Look at that. Now just like with did
with the tarantula hawk, the way to get this
animal to sting me, is we’re gonna actually
place a glass capsule inside of this net, and I’m
gonna take off the glass top, let the net fall down
on top of the insect and I’m going to pick it up
with these entomology forceps. I think you guys all know
the game plan from there. Coyote’s arm goes
down on the table, the insect touches my forearm, and a sting is induced. Now, of course, for safety we
always have an epinephrine pen on set, just in case
anybody’s wondering. I’m gonna just place this off
to the side at this point, and if you guys are ready, let’s get the warrior
wasp into the net. Mark are you all set? – [Mark] I’m all set. What happens if the wasp gets
aggressive and flies at us? – Whoo, that’s a great question, because I will tell you what. This is one fast insect. Now when I’m stung, as
always, I’m gonna try to get the glass
capsule back over top. If I do not, and
the wasp flies off, just hold your
ground for a second. A good chance is, it
just wants to escape and it’s not gonna
come after you guys, but if you are stung, I’m
pretty much just gonna turn the cameras around
and film you guys and see what happens. (laughter) – Oh, lets not do that today.
– Let’s hope. – That doesn’t happen. Well so far, I’ve managed
to get everyone of these stinging insects back
inside the glass capsule so that we can safely release
it back into the wild, right where it came
from and with any luck, we’ll be able to pull that
off again, once more today. – [Mark] Let’s keep that
streak alive please. – Yes, yes, for you guys’ sake, let’s definitely keep it alive. Maurio are you ready? – Ready. – Mark are you ready? – I’m ready if you’re ready. (blows air) – Alright I am going to
slide the warrior wasp off to the side. You stay there buddy. I’m going to place the net, right in the middle
of the table, and just like I did
with the tarantula hawk, I’m then going to replace
the capsule right there and I’m going to
lift up the net. See that, good. You guys got that shot. – [Cameraman] Yep. – I’m now going to
remove the glass capsule and let the wasp– – [Cameraman] A little
delicate procedure. – Ohh!
– Okay. – The wasp is in the net. I’m gonna gently pin it,
and I need to grab it right at the back of its thorax. Got it! Perfect hold. Okay, wow! There we have it! Okay, I’m gonna have
to do this quick. And that is about as good a
hold as I am going to get. Whoa look at that stinger. (suspenseful music) I’m Coyote Peterson, and I’m
about to enter the sting zone with the warrior wasp. Here we go. One. Two. (suspenseful music) (screaming) (screaming) Ooohh! God! Arrgh! – [Cameraman] Are you alright? – Ahhhh! Ahhhh! – [Cameraman] Talk to
me, what are you feelin’? – Oh man! Oh man, yep, don’t be sad! Oh man (faint speaking)
really quickly. So far, not as bad as
the bullet ant though. Oooh, nope, nope, nope, hold on. Arrgh! Oooh, sharp shooting pain! There’s the sting
zone, right there. You see that, oh my gosh! My arm is swellin’ up
really, really quickly! Arrgh! Hold on, back to the
table, back to the table! Okay, so what is happening
right now is the venom is getting into my
bloodstream, right. And what’s happening
is it is breaking down the membranes around
my blood cells, and it’s causing
them to scatter. Now there’s cells in there
that are neurons, right. Those neurons are sending
messages to my brain that are screaming
pain, pain, pain, and trust me, when I say
there’s massive amounts of pain going through my arm right now! (groans) Initial onset is not as
bad as the bullet ant, but it’s an electrical
shock similar to that of the tarantula hawk. Hold on, let me compose
myself here for a second. Arrgh, oooh, oh my gosh, the pain is actually
getting worse, as time goes on, and I don’t
know if that’s actually the venom taking hold or
that’s just the neurons firing to my brain, saying you are in a lot
of pain right now Coyote. Hold on guys, give me a second. Arrgh! See the red! – [Cameraman] You
seem more squirmy. Arrgh! – [Cameraman] You
can’t sit still. – This is more of
a continuous sting than the bullet ant was. This is, this keeps firing. This just keeps firing. God this GoPro. Arrgh! (suspenseful music) – [Cameraman] Let me know
if I need to be worried. Talk to me. – I’m trying to just mentally like absorb the pain right now. And we’re tired. We’ve been working hard all
day and it’s hot out here. I’m light-headed. You know, when you get
into a really hot shower, and the steam sets on and you
feel like you’re gonna faint, I do feel like I’m
getting close to fainting and that is not good. I’m just trying to
control my breathing. Arrgh, look at that welt. Man! That thing walloped me! I can only imagine
what it would be like to be swarmed by these. Just a single sting dwarfs
the sting of a yellow jacket. The initial sting was not as
painful as the tarantula hawk, but then it set in, and it
was electrical in nature. It felt like an electrical
current going into my arm, and I was over here, I was
hitting the ground saying it’s not as bad
as the bullet ant, but in its own way,
it’s different, because the bullet ant hit me,
and then just kept radiating. This feels like I’m being
stung over and over and over. – [Cameraman] Man
it’s really swollen. It usually doesn’t
swell quickly. – Look at that. Go ahead, put your hand out. Feel the tauntness
of my forearm. – [Cameraman] Oh yeah. – And you can see–
– Oh yeah. – [Cameraman] Big time. – [Coyote] The stinger
insertion point is definitely swollen. It is very much isolated. It almost looks like a little BB or something underneath my skin. – [Cameraman] You know,
you’re reacting more like you did with the bees, with that immediate welt. – And my body may start to
react differently to venoms. At this point I’m just
feelin’ really light-headed, very hot, my arm is very
hot and I’m not necessarily a state of paralysis
like the tarantula hawk, but my– – [Cameraman] Any tightness
in your chest or– – Not my chest! Tightness in my hand,
like this motion, squeezing of my hand, is very,
very difficult right now. I’m really having a hard
time squeezing down a fist, and you can see the swelling
is setting in there. It does still feel, like
pins and needles in my arm, but I know, that everybody
wants me to answer the question. Is the sting from the
warrior wasp more painful than the bullet ant? I would definitely say that
the bullet ant is worse. However, keep this in mind. If you come across a bullet
ant while you’re out there venturing through the
rainforest of Costa Rica, let’s say one lands on your arm, falls out of tree,
and stings you, you can easily brush it off. However, if you stumble upon
a nest of warrior wasps, and you disturb it, you’re
going to have thousands of angry insects attacking you, and not only are they
going to be attacking, but they are going to
be chasing as you run through the underbrush. Now, imagine if you were
to talk sting after sting after sting, it could
potentially be lethal. So word to the wise, if you’re out there in the
rainforest of Costa Rica, simply admire these animals
from a safe distance and always pay attention
to your surroundings. I’m Coyote Peterson. Be brave, stay wild! We’ll see you on
the next adventure! Hey, wait a second, (needle scratching record) I feel like we’re
missing something. – What? – [Coyote] You famous line. – Oh, you didn’t
notice my t-shirt. – [Coyote] Oh. – I been wearing
this all day man. – Cool!
– Check it out! – I read the comments guys. – [Coyote] As I hike back
through the sweltering rainforest, I could feel
the physical and mental exhaustion setting in. Yet I knew there was still
one thing left to do. Alright guys well, my arm is in considerable pain right now, but as always it is time
to release the creature back into the wild. What I’m gonna do is
open up the capsule, and let this warrior wasp fly
right back up to its nest. Slowly opening the capsule I
released this fearless warrior and watched as it
returned to the nest. I felt a sense of completion. My personal mountain, known as
the insect sting pain index, had finally been conquered. It was a long painful journey, but as I climbed
past the cow killer, traversed the tarantula hawk, battled the bullet ant, now
withstood the warrior wasps, I felt as if I had finally
reached the summit. However, as I stood upon
this moment in time, it seemed to pass in a flash, as I was quickly reminded
that the universe will always present
it’s next challenge when you least expect it. Alright guys, so we have
looked up vespid wasps of Latin American, and I
have found out what this is. Just after we finished
filming the warrior wasp, we came upon a species
whose sting had yet to be officially
documented and ranked on the insect sting pain index. Could this sleeping
giant be the dark horse that would emerge
from the shadows to claim the throne as the
newly established king of sting? There is only one
way to find out. I’m going to be stung
by the executioner wasp. If you are excited to
see how bad the sting of the executioner wasp
is, make sure to go back and pay homage to the
reigning king of sting, the bullet ant, and
don’t forget subscribe to join me and the crew on
this season of Breaking Trail! Oh my gosh this is it! (howling) (birds chirping)
