How The Chinese Army Deals With Wasps

They nuke their nests with flamethrowers of course:

Why not right?  Any opportunity to use a flamethrower is a good one in my opinion.

I wouldn’t have been the guy steadying the barrel though… probably safe enough, but that doesn’t sit well with me.

Thoughts?

I was doing some focus shooting during my last range trip and I shot one that landed on my target. :)

If it deserves to be killed, it deserves to be killed with fire.

Chinese are so behind us weapons and tactics wise. That job clearly called for an Apache.

The Tampa Fire Dept has done the same thing before – I once saw it on a nest of about 1 million yellowjackets.

Have I mentioned that this is considered a legitimate agriculture use in the U.S, therefore flamthrowers are an agriculture tool and have NO restrictions or registration. They are legal for ANYONE to own or build.

Obsolete. Swarms are jobs for UAV’s. :P

Why use a flame-thrower? To get rid of WASPS, just de-gentrify their neighborhoods…

If it was a nest of the Giant Asian Hornet, then a flame thrower is almost underkill.
