It was a pretty interesting morning here at 92 Moose. While I was in one of our recording studios getting some work done, a big ol' yellow jacket came flying out of the ceiling.

Now, we have had a ceiling tile out of place for about two years because of some wires that needed to be run through the building. After the wiring was done, for whatever reason, the tile wasn't put back in the proper spot. Part of me thinks that there is a nest somewhere up inside the insulation of the ceiling.

Anyway, since I'm a bit of a schoolgirl, I saw this monster killer, shrieked and ran out of the room, slamming the door behind me. Renee came to see what was the matter and I proceeded to tell her my death defying tale of escaping the fatal grasp of the murder hornet. Okay fine, it was a yellow jacket.

After a few minutes I went back into the room to see if I could find it. Sure enough, there was the stone cold killer. Just hanging out on one of the walls in the studio as if it owned the place. Well, about 30 seconds and one Adidas sandal later, the insect was deceased. After performing a brief autopsy, I was able to deduce that the creature had died from blunt force trauma. Oops. My bee.

Following this incredibly difficult experience, Renee was nice enough to share this bee chart with me. It shows several different striped insects along with bullet points about their habits, aggressiveness and overall demeanor. Check it out! Oh, and you can attempt to pet a bumblebee, but do it at your own risk!
