STUNG by an EXECUTIONER WASP!

STUNG by an EXECUTIONER WASP!


(ominous music) – I’m Coyote Peterson, and I’m about to
enter the sting zone, with the Executioner wasp. Here we go. Ahh, ahh, ahh! Stop burning. (panting) Hah! Ahhhhh! The Executioner’s sting! (large cat roar) (exciting drumming music) (large cat roar) (intriguing music) All great journeys
eventually find their end. When we are talking
about my climb up the renowned insect
sting pain index, it seemed as if this end
would never be found. It all began with an
onslaught of Harvester ants. This series of stings
was quickly followed up with my hands being plunged
into an even more painful swarm of burning Fire ants. Ow, ow, ow, oh! One would think I had
learned my lesson, yet determination
drove me onward. As I crested past
the Cow Killer, and ascended to the
towering heights, of the Tarantula Hawk. This alien looking wasp
put me on the ground. Ahhh! Literally. Yet, I got back up, dusted myself off,
and kept going. Hah, I am light-headed
at the moment, and at this juncture, I
think it’s safe to say, that I have worked
my way up the ladder, and am ready for the
Bullet ant challenge. The end was finally in sight, and it came in the
shadow of a giant ant. As I summited the final
peak of sting mountain, the world watched with clenched
fists and gritted teeth, as I went forearm
to venomous stinger with the notorious Bullet ant. Hailed as the most painful
sting in the world, I had survived the
Bullet ant challenge. Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! My mission of climbing
this mountain, strewn with agonizing
insect stings, had seemingly come to an end, yet rumors of a
more painful sting, that of the Warrior wasp, haunted the comments
of every video posted on the Brave
Wilderness Channel, so we filmed the sequel. And truth be told, it wasn’t
nearly as painfully memorable as the Bullet ant. Ahhhhh! Ugggghhh! Sharp, shooting pain. Yet, much to my dismay, what appeared to be the
final chapter in this saga, was nothing more than a prelude, that led to the moment in
time where I encountered the Executioner wasp. (ominous music) Mark you rolling? – [Mark] Yup. – Come here, come
here, come here. Look at this. – [Mark] What is it? – Look at this. I don’t know what it is. – [Mark] Oh. – They look like giant hornets. They’re absolutely enormous. We literally just
finished filming the Warrior wasp episode, we’re coming back
out of the jungle, we pass by this little,
kind of, overhang that has a swimming pool here. This is huge. This could be a
totally new species. I’ve never seen this
species of wasp, or hornet, or
whatever it is before. I think we gotta catch one
and try to identify it though. What do you think? – [Mark] Yeah,
let’s check it out. – Uhhh, got my net,
literally in my hand. There’s only two of ’em,
so the good news is, we’re not gonna get swarmed. I think if I can scare
one off the nest, I can scoop it up. – [Mark] All right.
– Should we give it a try? – [Mark] Let’s try it. – All right. – [Mark] I don’t think
they’re that aggressive. They seem to be
holding their ground. – Well, if you were that big, you’d probably would
hold your ground too. And I’m guessing that the sting that comes from that giant
has got to be painful. – [Mark] Should I stand back? – Yeah, you stand
back, you stand back. I’m gonna use the same tactic
I used for the Warrior wasp. Hold on. Watch, watch up above
me there, Mario. Make sure they don’t
come swarming down at me. Okay, so this is the Aquapod. We usually use the under water. I’m gonna use it to tempt
one of them off the nest, and then, just like I did
with the Warrior wasp, (makes swooshing sound) swoop it up. If I run, you run, got it? – [Mark] Got it. – There’s only two of ’em. Here we go. – [Mark] Okay. (ominous music) – I’m gonna try to
scare this one down, it’s just off the edge. (ominous music) It’s right on the
end of the Aquapod. Look at that. Wow, it is massive. – [Mark] (mumbles) – Look at that thing. (ominous music) I’ve got a little capsule
right in my bag, right here. I’m gonna get it
inside of the net, and then get it
into the capsule. It is looking right at me
– His abdomen’s pulsing. – It’s not happy. Hold on, let me get
him inside the net. (ominous music) Yup, it’s netted. (ominous music) Here we go, here we go. (ominous music) I got it. Yes. Yes, got it! Woohoohoohoohoohoohoo! Look at the size of that insect. Wow, that is impressive. – [Mark] Looks pretty menacing. – Yes, it does. Much more intimidating
looking than the Warrior wasp. I have never seen this
species before guys, so we are actually going to
take it back to base camp, and we’re gonna have
to look this up. – [Mark] What about it’s sting? I mean, do we know anything? – I know absolutely nothing,
and as far as I can tell, this is not something
that is ranked on the insect sting pain index. – [Mark] ‘Cause you’ve never
seen anything like this? – Never before in my life. This is absolutely crazy. Quite possibly a new species. – [Mark] Whoa. – Wow. The eastern mountainous
slopes of Costa Rica seem to be a world swarming
with stinging insects. And if Bullet ants and
Warrior wasps were not enough, the remote untamed wilds of
this rainforest ecosystem, had one more painful
sting up their sleeve. With an intimidating
specimen safely contained within the viewing capsule, we returned to our
jungle base camp, and began scouring the internet for an identification
to our find. All right guys, so
we have looked up Vespid wasps of Latin America,
and I found a great site, and I have found
out what this is. – [Mario] What is it? It is not a new species. It is actually called
the Executioner wasp. – [Mario] What? – [Coyote] The Executioner wasp. – [Mario] Whoa! – Talk about a
horrific name, right? – [Mario] Man, that sounds,
that sounds like it’s something to be considered
for the sting index. – Well, when I look at the
insect’s sting pain index, it does not appear
that this in on there. Now, there is a Warrior wasp,
there’s the Tarantula Hawk, the Bullet ant, there are
some species of Paper wasps. This is considered to be the
largest Paper wasp species in all of the
Neotropical environments, but it is not on Schmidt’s
sting pain index. This is crazy. – [Mark] Maybe this is a
better conclusion to the story. – You know, the Warrior wasp did not take down
the Bullet ant. The Bullet ant, in my opinion, is still the reigning
king of sting, but something like this,
with those stripes, and that menacing
looking face, man, if this had a more
powerful sting, that would truly deserve
it’s place on the throne. Don’t you think? – [Mark] Let’s think about it. – Let’s think about it. (ominous music) The Executioner wasp. That name alone is
enough to drive fear through anyone that hears it. Hailing as the largest of the Neotropical
Paper wasp species, this insect is a giant. It carries the cryptic moniker, in relation to it’s swift
attack and decapitation methods for dismantling
helpless caterpillars, which it in turn feeds to its
brood of alien-like larva. Those who have been witness
to this massive wasp, have wisely kept
a safe distance. And while this is not a
newly discovered species, when it comes to the powerful
punch in its venomous sting, this nightmarish looking insect, has not officially been ranked
on the sting pain index. So today, the chapter you
have all been waiting for is about to be written. (exhales) I’ll tell you what. If this is more painful that
the Bullet ant, that is it. I’m doing no more
stings after this. Honestly, probably do no more
stings after this, regardless. This has to come to
an end at some point. But I would not have been able to walk away from Costa
Rica, having found this wasp, and not having been stung by it. (exhales through lips) so, here we go. Mark is giving me the signal. It is time to get stung
by the Executioner. (exhales nervously) Here we go. (exhales nervously) There it is. The Executioner,
and he is waiting. – [Mark] Are you sure
you want to do this? – Oh yeah, I mean,
I built myself up, at this point, there
is no turning back. (exhales nervously)
Are you guys ready? – [Mark] I’m ready if you are. – Okay, I’m going
to place the capsule inside of the entomology net. Here we go. And I’m going to get the
wasp out with the forceps. (ominous music) Okay, the wasp is in the net. (ominous music) Got it. (exhales nervously) All right, there we go. I’ve got it, perfect hold. And that stinger is
absolutely massive. Okay, I’m gonna move
the epinephrine pen off to the side here. Let’s keep the glass
capsule accessible, so that I can quickly
cover it back up. That is a very large
wasp right there. You can see it’s completely
calmed down at this point. It is just waiting
to inflict a sting. (ominous music) Okay, are you ready? I’m gonna move this here. – [Mark] Yep, I’m ready. – Yeah, okay. I’m Coyote Peterson, and I’m
about tho enter the sting zone with the Executioner wasp. Here we go. One. (exhales nervously) Two. Three. (ominous music) Ah! Ahhhh! Dohhh! Ughhhh! Dohhh my gosh! Dohhh, that’s really
bad, really quick. – [Mark] How bad– – Ahhhhhhh! Dahhhhh! Ughhhhh! Dohhhh, right there! Dohhh, you can see the venom coming right out of
my arm right there. You see that? Dohhhh, my gosh! Hoh, that hurts a lot! (panting) Ahhhh! Dohhh, it’s as bad as
the Tarantula hawk! Dohhh! Dahhh! – [Mark] (mumbles) Ahhhhhhh! Ooaaah! Ahh! Ughhh! (exhales) – [Mark] Wow. – [Coyote] (exhales
through gritted teeth) (whispers) right there. Ahhhh! Ffffff! – [Mark] Tell me
what you’re feeling. Fffff! – [Mark] I know it’s hard. Oh my gosh, it’s bleeding. Fffff! Fffff! Ughhhh! Duhhhh! (exhales) Ooohhhhh! – [Mark] Think I
should be worried? Ohhhhh, I don’t know. Ohhhww! Ahhhh! Ahhhhhhh! Gahhhhhh! Man! The Executioner wasp packs
an unbelievable wallop. Man, the initial impact is
definitely just as sharp, if not worse, than
the Tarantula Hawk. But look, you can see the
blood underneath the skin. Right now, my arm is throbbing. It is on fire. It is about– Ohhhhhhhh, my God, that hurts! – [Mark] (mumbles) Ohhhhh, it is burning
uncontrollably. Whoaaaaa! It is definitely as bad
as the Tarantula Hawk, there’s no question about it. And it is without
question sharper, sharper than a Bullet ant. I think we’ve got a
new king here folks. It’s just a matter of how
long is this thing gonna last. Haahh. Ahhhh! – [Mark] Talk to me
about the swelling– – Gahhhh! Hold on! Ahhhh, it’s getting worse. Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh! Stop burning! Ahhhh! It’s getting worse. Dahhhhh! You little devil. Ahhhh, the Executioner
lives up to it’s name! Ohhh my gosh! (panting) – [Mark] You can see
the blood coming out. – Ughhh. Ughh. I just, I can’t talk. I can’t talk. It is so much pain. I’m g– Cut the cameras. Ahhhhhhhh! – [Mario] Oh my goodness,
look at this white spot. – [Mark] Wow. – Yeah. – [Mark] That is the worst
reaction you’ve ever had. – Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! – [Mark] Holy cow. – [Coyote] Ahhhhhh! We have a new king
of sting folks. – [Mark] Mario. Mario, you seeing this? – [Coyote] He is the king! Bahhhh, I can’t feel my arm! Huhh! (panting) – [Mark] Do I need
to be worried here? Are you going to be able to– Mario what do you think? Mario? – (panting) Oh my God. Oh my arm. Oh my arm. Ahhhhhhhh, it’s– Burning does not stop. Ahhhhh! That may be the most painful
sting I have ever taken. No, let me rephrase that, that is the most painful
sting I’ve ever taken. The Bullet ant has
been dethroned. The Executioner is king. Ahhh! – [Mark] Mario, have you ever
seen him react like this? You see the white? – [Mario] Yeah. – [Mark] Looks like scarring. Just like the bullet ant. – [Mario] Yeah. – [Mark] There’s scarring,
but there’s blood coming out. (ominous music) – Mmmmmm. Mmnnaahhh! Whoaaaaa. (ominous music) Oh my gosh, my arm is on fire. – [Mark] Feel like
the Gila Monster? – Mmm. It is a different
pain than the Bullet. This is a searing pain. It is attacking my blood cells. It is breaking down
the membranes around
those blood cells, and the cell particles
are spilling out onto my arm right now,
sending firing neurons screaming to my brain right now. They’re saying, you’re
in a lot of pain. Lot of pain going on right
here guys, a lot of pain. (ominous music) Ahhh. – [Mark] Are you out
of the woods yet? – It’s extremely hard right now. The initial sting, and the
shock that came from the sting of the Executioner, was
more painful than anything I have experienced before. And I think I said it when I
was on the ground over there, that the Bullet ant
has been dethroned, and the new king of
sting is the Executioner. And I am bending the knee
right now to this insect, because not only is
it’s look intimidating, but it’s sting is
the real thing. It is screaming at the moment,
screaming searing pain. So where the Warrior wasp
felt like pins and needles, and the Bullet ant felt like
somebody taking a hot poker and sticking it into your arm. This is like flesh peeled back. No, I don’t know
what it feels like to have flesh peeled
back, but I can imagine that this is what it is. You see, I can’t even
move my hand right now. My whole arm is in
such agonizing pain and it’s starting
to itch right here. I can feel the venom
working it’s way up, similar in a sense to how the
Gila Monster’s venom worked, and it is hot to the touch. Mark, just tell them how
hot my forearm is right now. – [Mark] Oh wow, you can
see right here, actually. Mario, can you get
a shot of that. – Try to get that. You see this? – [Mark] There’s a residual
reaction occurring up your arm. Is it– – Now, in this instance,
I do not know if the pain is going to last for
more than an hour, more than five hours,
more than 36 hours, but I can tell you right now that the pain has lasted
longer than the Tarantula Hawk, and at this moment, it is
worse than the Bullet ant. So, in this immediate
presentation, I am declaring the
Executioner wasp as being the king of sting,
as it currently stands. All right guys, I’m just gonna
go ahead give you an outro, ’cause I’m starting to have
trouble composing my words here. – [Mark] Yeah, we’re
concerned, man. You’re not out of the
woods yet, are you? – No. I’m Coyote Peterson,
be brave, stay wild. We’ll see you on
the next adventure. Man, that’s intense. (ominous music) The prolonged effects of
the Executioner’s venom lasted for nearly a week,
as just a single sting packed enough potency to rot
a small crater in my forearm. This has got to be
the longest hike back to base camp I’ve ever had. My arm is screaming
in pain right now. The residual pain was followed
by persistent itching, and ultimately a scar, that
today I still carry with me, as a reminder that this
Neotropical Paper wasp is a foe unlike any
I had ever faced. Ahhhh, are you still filming? – [Mark] Yeah. – Ahhhhhhh! – [Mark] You don’t
want to remember this? – The Executioner! Oh, my arm is
throbbing right now. – [Mario] Drink some water. – Ahhhh. (eerie music) Oh. (birds singing) The planet is teaming
with more insect species than are known to man,
and a fair share of them are armed with
venomous stingers. My climb up the insect
sting pain index, and my destiny to encounter
and face the Executioner wasp, was a journey I could
have never predicted, yet it successfully
captured and captivated the minds of millions
upon millions of viewers. And while I know you all
enjoyed watching me squirm around on the ground in pain, I hope that you also walked
away with a new sense of respect and understanding for these
fascinating creatures. Without my incredible crew, Justin Schmidt’s
brilliant sting roadmap, and the wonderful Coyote
pack cheering me on, none of this would
have been possible. So, thank you all for
joining me on this journey. I certainly have
enjoyed the ride. Now, to firmly answer
your burning question, yes, for me, this
really is the end. Is there a more painful
sting out there, crawling across
the desert sands, or flying through the
humid rainforests? Possibly. Probably. But that is a mystery I feel
is best left to live on. Crowning the Executioner
wasp as the new king of sting is as far as I am going to go. And in my opinion,
this truly was one sting to rule them all. (epic orchestral music) (coyote howl)

Insects & Bugs : How Are Wasp Nests Made?

Insects & Bugs : How Are Wasp Nests Made?


You’ve decided to spend a nice relaxing evening
out on your back porch and all of a sudden you begin to hear this buzz and you look up,
uh oh there’s a wasps nest. Where did it come from? I’m Janice Creneti and this is how do
wasps make nests? Well wasps are insects very similar to bees. They have a lot in common
with bees. They have six jointed appendages because they’re members of the arthropod group
of invertebrates. They have wings so they can fly just like bees. But one of the main
differences between bees and wasps is that bees can produce wax that they use in making
their honeycombs. Wasps don’t have those abilities; they don’t have the glands that produce that
wax. So what do they do instead? Well if you’ve ever looked at their nest you’ll notice that
they seem kind of papery. That’s because they are. They’re made of a paper substance that
the wasp makes by actually chewing on things like wood pulp, mixing it with some saliva
and producing a papery like substance. It’s almost like paper mache. Layers and layers,
and layers of that later and you have a wasps nest. Remember don’t remove it with, with
not using a lot of car because you might make that wasp pretty angry and those wasp bites
can be pretty painful. It’s really best just to leave them alone. I’m Janice Creneti and
this is how do wasps make nests?

Insects & Bugs : How Do Fruit Flies Grow?

Insects & Bugs : How Do Fruit Flies Grow?


The bananas are turning brown, they’re starting
to smell a little over-ripe, and now they’re covered with fruit flies. Once you’ve got
fruit flies, it can be hard to get rid of them. But why is it so difficult to get rid
of them? I’m Janice Creneti and this is How Do Fruit Flies Grow? Well, fruit flies are
an insect. They’re an invertebrate which means that they don’t have a backbone. They have
a hard crunchy shell instead. Well, the thing about insects is that they go through a process
call metamorphosis. You may be familiar with the butterfly and the caterpillar. So let’s
look at metamorphosis and the stages that a fruit fly actually goes through. Fruit flies
are called fruit flies ’cause they’re attracted to fruit. And in addition to eating the fruit,
they’ll actually lay their eggs on the fruit. Once thee egg hatches, it becomes a larva,
or what sometimes you might think of as being a caterpillar if we’re talking about a butterfly
metamorphosis. That larva will continue to feed on the fruit. Then it will turn into
a pupa. Now this is the point where it stops eating, it’s actually developing, sort of
like a cocoon, again, if we’re comparing it to butterfly metamorphosis. Then, through
that process, it will actually develop it’s legs, it’s wings, and everything it needs
to become an adult fruit fly. Once that adult fruit fly hatches, it’s ready to start laying
eggs and making more fruit flies in your kitchen. So if you want to get rid of the fruit flies,
the trick is to get rid of the fruit. I’m Janice Creneti and this is How Do Fruit Flies
Grow?

STUNG by a TARANTULA HAWK!

STUNG by a TARANTULA HAWK!


– If the bullet ant
is the grand finale on my quest to find
the most painful sting in the insect kingdom, the tarantula hawk is
definitely the last act. And right now Mark is
shooting B roll of it inside this little
glass enclosure. And boy, it does not look happy. (intense buzzing) Now they say that the
sting of the tarantula hawk is number two on the
insect sting pain index. It’s like being
stunned with a tazer and they say it puts
you into a state of paralysis for
up to five minutes where all you can do is scream. As you can tell, we’re
pretty excited about this. – [Mark] All right Coyote. (deep breathing) You okay, man? Your heart racing? – A million miles a second. This is the most
nervous I’ve ever been to take a stinger
bite from anything. My hand is shaking. Are you guys all ready? – [Mark] Oh yeah, I’m
ready if you’re ready. – I’m ready, I’m ready. Here we go. I’m Coyote Peterson. And I’m about to
enter the sting zone with the tarantula hawk. – [Mark] Go for it. – One. (exhaling) Two. Here we go, three. (screaming) (drum beat) (roaring) I think we can all
agree that I have done some pretty crazy things. Like the time where
I stuck my arm into the mouth of an alligator, to show you why getting
an alligator as a pet is not a good idea. Ready, everyone ready? Rolling, GoPro rolling. Here we go. One. Two. Three.
(screaming) Ooh yeah, he is into my arm and he is holding on. Then there was the time
I put that same arm into a container full
of blood sucking leaches to show you what it’s like to be feasted on by
one of the world’s most notorious parasites. Look at that. They are all over me. Oh, I can definitely
feel something happening. It feels like sandpaper
grinding against my skin. You guessed it, they
drank a lot of blood. And it’s all about the
amount of anti-coagulant that actually went into my hand. I may be bleeding for
hours at this point. Oh yeah, then there
was that time I took a sting from the velvet ant. Which is ranked as
having the fourth most painful sting in
the insect kingdom. (dramatic music) (yelping) (groaning) Oh my gosh, guys,
this is super bad. Like I said, I do some
pretty crazy things. But the reason I do
them is so we can learn about these animals, the dangers of their
bites or stings, and so that ultimately
we walk away with a newfound
respect for some of the coolest creatures on our planet. (screaming) Aah! (groaning) Oh that hurts. Ow! Ah! (screaming) Ah, can you see that? (deep breathing) Oh man, this was not a good
idea, ladies and gentlemen. Woo doggy. However, in order to be a
part of these experiments, I have to first get myself
up close with the animals. And sometimes that’s
easier said than done. – [Man] Careful! He’s gonna get it. I think he sees it. Oh. What happened? Go, go, go! (hollering) What’s wrong, did you catch it? – Yeah, I caught it. Oh, but the bad news is, I caught something else, too. – Oh my goodness. That is the worst cholla
spike I’ve ever seen. – Oh, hold on a second. Hold on, hold on, I
don’t wanna get stung by a tarantula hawk. – [Man] They’re
all over you, man. (screaming) – Hold on a second, let
me get this under control. – [Man] Oh my gosh. Did you get the
tarantula hawk, at least? – I did, I did, I caught
the tarantula hawk. – [Mark] You nervous? – [Coyote] Do I look nervous? – [Mark] Yep. – Yeah, guys, I am
the most nervous I have ever been before one of
these bite or sting episodes. As we know, yesterday I
made this awesome catch. I caught a tarantula hawk
and I was so excited. And then I fell into
a cholla cactus. (screaming) And then I realized
what I had done. I set the table for today where I’m going to be stung by a giant spider wasp. Now, the tarantula
hawk is the second most painful sting in
the insect kingdom. The only thing more
painful than this is the bullet ant and
I felt that to work my way up the rungs of
experiencing these painful insect stings, I kind of had to
see what it was like to be stung by a tarantula
hawk before I actually take on the bullet
ant challenge. Woo, deep breath. All right, let’s
bring in the wasp. Oh boy, this is gonna be bad. Oh. – [Man] Oh boy. – Oh my goodness. – [Man] That’s a big one. – That is the largest
species of wasp in the United States,
ladies and gentlemen. Now, you look at this insect
and you say to yourself, tarantula hawk, well
it’s not a tarantula and it’s not a hawk. But like a hawk they
hunt for tarantulas. What these females will do
is fly around in the sky and they can actually
sense chemicals in the air that will tell them where a
tarantula’s burrow exists. They will land on the ground, skitter across, and go
down into the burrow. They will use their front
arms to tempt that tarantula to come up out of its burrow. And that is where a
boxing match begins. The tarantula hawk will
dodge left and right, taunting that tarantula
until it rears up on its back legs and
exposes its fangs. Now, you would think that
tarantula is going to bite down and kill
the tarantula hawk. Not gonna happen. This hawk is so quick, she will spin her
abdomen up underneath the belly of the tarantula, insert that quarter
inch stinger, and the venom will
instantly put that tarantula into a state of paralysis. Now, the tarantula is not dead. It’s just like this. (groaning) I’m in intense pain
and I cannot move. And this, ladies and gentlemen, is where the true
horror story begins. It’s in a state of
paralysis and the female pulls the tarantula back
down into its burrow and there, she proceeds to lay
an egg on top of its abdomen. She then leaves the burrow and the tarantula is left there, still alive and in a
permanent state of paralysis. Eventually that egg hatches, and the larvae then
eats the tarantula while it’s still alive. How’s that for one
crazy horror story? Okay, so they say that the
sting from the tarantula hawk is so painful it
will put even a human into a state of paralysis
for about five minutes. I know what you’re thinking. Coyote, this is
absolutely crazy. Do you wanna know what
Coyote’s thinking right now? This is absolutely crazy. But I think if you
guys are ready, I am ready to be stung
by the tarantula hawk. Here we go guys. Chance, bring in
that butterfly net. I’m gonna lift this up. We’re going to actually
place the capsule inside of the butterfly
net just like that. Lift it up and I have a set of entomology forceps here. See that? And these have a very soft tip. I’m gonna be able
to pick up the wasp with these forceps. What I’m gonna do first
is reach my arm in there and remove the glass capsule. Once the glass capsule’s out, the net will fall
down on the wasp and I’ll be able to insert
the forceps in there, pick up the wasp, and remove it from the net. Okay, ready, here we go. – [Mark] The butterfly
net is here to try to prevent the wasp
from flying away. – Yes. [Mark] Because how hard was it to catch this wasp? – Extremely difficult. We’ve been trying for days
to catch one of these. And it was a very painful
experience to get it based on the fact that I fell into the cholla, okay,
ready, here we go. You ready? – [Mark] I’m ready. – I’m removing
the glass capsule. Trying not to disturb the wasp. Okay, this is good. – [Mark] Part one, successful. – Part one is good, I’m
gonna remove the stick. Stick is out. Okay, now I’m going to
fold this over like that. – [Mark] This is the
last little break between you and being stung, what’s going through your mind? (deep breath) – What’s going through my
mind is don’t get stung right now just through the net. I have to get it perfectly
with the entomology forceps. If I don’t get it
right on its thorax, we can’t make this happen. – [Mark] I don’t know, man, I think you’re kind of stalling. – I’m not stalling. Trust me, I’m not stalling. Oh boy. – [Mark] Careful. Oh boy. – Got it. – [Mark] Oh boy. – [Coyote] That is the
position that we want. – [Mark] Oh boy, okay, so we gotta hurry
up and do this. – That is a perfect
hold right there. Now, before, look how
much my hand is shaking. Hold on. (mumbling) Okay, we’ve got a
really good hold. – [Mark] Wow, look at
that abdomen going. – I got a really
good hold on her. It took me a minute
to get the right hold but the right hold
is what is important. Now, I do have the
glass capsule right here so I’m hoping that I
have the wherewithall after the sting to
quickly pick up the glass enclosure and put it
back over top of the wasp so it doesn’t escape
and we can get some more bebo shots with it. But, guys, do be aware
that if I do immediately go into a state of paralysis, just let the wasp fly away. Don’t try to grab it,
don’t do anything. It will be back into the wild
and everything will be fine. – [Mark] All right, Coyote. You okay, man? Your heart racing? – A million miles a second. This is the most
nervous I’ve ever been to take a stinger
bite from anything. My hand is shaking. Are you guys all ready? – [Mark] Oh yeah, I’m
ready if you’re ready. – I’m ready, I’m ready. Okay, here we go. I’m Coyote Peterson, and I’m
about to enter the sting zone with the tarantula hawk. – [Mark] Go for it. – One. (deep breath) Two. Here we go, three. (screaming) (groaning) – [Mark] You all right? (groaning) (screaming) – Oh my gosh! Ow! (screaming) – [Mark] Tell me
what you’re feeling? – I can’t move my arm. (groaning) (heavy breathing) That is the most intense
pain I’ve ever felt. Don’t think I can talk. (groaning) (wincing) – [Mark] Are you okay, man? I’m getting nervous. Are you feeling anything like, do we need to be worried? – No, I just can’t move my arm. I think I’m gonna cry. Coyote Peterson doesn’t
cry though, right? (groaning) It is, it’s like my arm
is in a state of paralysis right now. Aah.
(groaning) – [Mark] Do you need anything? – Right there. Oh wow. Oh wow. Aah. Argh. – [Mark] It looks like
your arm is swollen up. (groaning) – Oh, second wave of pain! (groaning) (heavy breathing) It’s actually receding
at this point. Ah, wow. (heavy breathing) That zone right there is
a hot, radiating pain. And you can see the stinger, where it went in right there, that red mark, I’ve read
that it’s like getting tazed with a tazer gun. I’ve never been tazed before, but I can tell you that the
pain is unbelievable right now. All up and down my forearm. Wow, I actually
slightly liken it to the gila monster
at this point, it feels really hot. Really, really hot. Ah, ah hot to the touch. Wow, it’s, push it, see if my arm is warm to you. – [Mark] Oh yeah,
it’s all really, it’s like really hot. – Oh, let me walk
around for a second. Oh. Ah. Okay, okay. Let’s come back
into the scene here. Ah, ah you little bugger. Ah, I am lightheaded
at the moment but the sting from the
tarantula hawk is serious. I can see why it’s
ranked as a two on the insect sting pain index. And at this juncture, I
think it’s safe to say that I have worked
my way up the ladder and I’m ready for the
bullet ant challenge. I know you are all waiting
in anticipation for that one. Trust me, it’s coming. I’m Coyote Peterson, be brave. Stay wild, we’ll see you
on the next adventure. All right, let’s
let this go back off into the desert. We safely release
the tarantula hawk back into the wild
and as it flew away I think we were
all a bit relieved that this sting was
over and done with. And while the
impact of the sting and the intensity of the pain was far superior to
that of the velvet ant, it only lasted for
about five minutes. I had no major
adverse reactions, however, my arm was sore
for the rest of the day. And 24 hours later, it looked like a water balloon and it really itches. And I really shouldn’t
itch it but ah, that feels so good. The tarantula hawk is
an extraordinary insect. And while their
sting is powerful, they have no interest
in stinging humans. If you ever see one in the wild, admire it from a safe distance, as you have absolutely
nothing to fear. That is, unless you
are a tarantula. Have you ever wondered
how to properly care for an insect sting? If so, make sure to check
out this behind the adventure and don’t forget to subscribe so you can join me and the crew on this season of
Breaking Trail. Oh, that may be the best
feeling I have had all day. (sighing)

Samurai Wasps Say ‘Smell Ya Later, Stink Bugs’ | Deep Look

Samurai Wasps Say ‘Smell Ya Later, Stink Bugs’ | Deep Look


Can anything stop this stink bug? Oh what, it doesn’t look so bad? Think again. The brown marmorated stink bug is a fearsome
invader … a relentless force … … wreaking havoc on fields and orchards
across the country. These stink bugs are originally from Asia
– but probably made it to the U.S. as stowaways in shipping containers a few decades ago. Marmorated, by the way, means marbled – see
that pattern on their backs? They have a huge appetite – eating just about
any kind of fruit or vegetable out there. They use this – a long proboscis – to pierce
the skin. It makes a tiny hole. Dainty eater, you might think? Nope. Underneath, it’s squirting in chemicals
to dissolve the fruit. Then it sips up the juices, like a smoothie. The fruit looks okay on the outside, but now,
it’s ruined, rotting on the inside. Stink bugs can even pierce the hard shell
of a hazelnut. Just squish ‘em, you think? Yeah, you don’t want to do that. They genuinely stink. When disturbed, they can release an olfactory
bomb from small glands. The smell? Well, some people say it’s like dirty socks…
or rotting cilantro. These stink bugs have spread to 44 states
now. And oh yeah, in the winter, they might just
show up in your house, where it’s warm. What could possibly stand up to them? Hello, samurai wasp. This tiny wasp, also from Asia, is an old
enemy of stink bugs. It unleashes a stealth attack. A female wasp finds a mass of stink bug eggs
… … then one by one, she lays one of her own
inside them. The parasitic wasp larva grows secretly inside,
feasting on a tasty egg breakfast until the developing stink bug is no more. Then, the grown up wasps chew their way out,
nibbling the edges away like fingernail clippings. In their native range in Asia, 60-90% of stink
bug eggs are parasitized in this way, keeping them in check. So researchers in the U.S. want to recruit
the wasps, as long as they don’t become a pest too. The wasps have already been found in Oregon,
so scientists at Oregon State University are studying them as a kind of biological control. After all, using wasps is targeted, since
they primarily go after brown marmorated stink bugs. Maybe someday, they could release the wasps
in places where there are lots of stink bugs. Today, farmers use pesticides, but that can
kill lots of other helpful organisms. Researchers know that sometimes your enemy’s
enemy is your friend. So soon, the samurai wasp could be doing its
part to beat back the stink bug onslaught, one egg at a time. Hey there, Deep Peeps, It’s Lauren. So, guess what? There are some truly amazing creatures in Oaxaca,
Mexico and we want to go film them. But we need your support to get there. Can you help us? Head to Patreon – the link is in the description. Thanks!

Insects & Bugs : How Do Insects Eliminate Waste?

Insects & Bugs : How Do Insects Eliminate Waste?


Insects bite — we know that. I’m sure you’ve
been bitten by them many times. But you might be wondering: Does anything come out the other
end? Hi, I’m Janice Creneti, and this is: How do insects eliminate waste? Well, first
of all, it’s important to understand what waste is. Waste can occur in a lot of different
forms in the body. Basically, it’s anything that the body can’t use anymore after it’s
processed whatever it’s taken in for food and energy. In a lot of animals, there’s a
need to conserve water and insects that dwell on land would be an example of that. They
don’t always have access to the water they need, so they don’t want to lose a lot of
water when they’re eliminating waste. Unlike humans, whose urine is primarily water. Insects,
instead, have an organ that’s called malpighian tubules that’s kind of like our kidneys. They
use these malpighian tubules to create something called uric acid. Uric acid is the same thing
that’s excreted by birds and also by reptiles, again, in an attempt to save water. Now, insects
that live in water, they’re a little bit different. Obviously, water is plentiful, and so they
excrete something that’s more similar to our urine. It’s primarily ammonia. And again,
unlike in humans where there’s a separate tube for liquid urine and then solid waste
is passed out of the end of the gut, in insects, it’s all mixed together. The uric acid and
any food particles — pollen grains — that may be a result of what they’ve been eating
gets mixed together and is passed out the end of the gut. So now you know. Insects do
eliminate waste. I’m Janice Creneti.
