Video Of Venus Flytraps Eating Yellowjacket Wasps

October 9, 2018

Seen here with what appear to be some spider leftovers still in one of its mouth, this is a video of a Venus Flytrap eating a bunch of yellowjacket wasps. Mother Nature: she's a cruel mistress. Now I've heard protecting wasps and hornets is almost just as important as the bees, but clearly this Venus Flytrap disagrees. I'm not going to argue with it. "But--" *huffing Raid* I SAID I'M NOT GOING TO ARGUE WITH IT.

Keep going for the video while I plant my entire yard's perimeter with Venus Flytraps. Big ones -- large enough to eat people. This place is gonna be a shit-show come Halloween.

Thanks to Caroline, who agrees there's no such thing as biting off more than you can chew if you're a good chewer. I can do two full packs of grape Big League.

    I've been considering a venus fly trap for a while now. I think it would be a good choice. Anyone know if they can catch fruit flies?

    I went in fully expecting to be on the side of the plant here, but then all those wasps came to rescue the one wasp with her head stuck in the plant, that made me feel empathy towards them :/

    Made me think of the old The Fly: "Help me! Help me!"

    Can plants get medals?

    This is a freaking hero.

    Tough to have sympathy for those Vespula sp.

  • I was JUST starting to reluctantly get on board with the "save the bees" shit because they actually pollinate crops in a way we could never do ourselves. That being said, the ONLY reason I was casually warming to that was because we could still all agree that wasps are useless as fuck and total dicks that can eat shit forever.

    If that isn't the case then I'm right back where we started. Concrete over the ocean to kill all those sharks and weird ass demon fish, then concrete right over that. Let's start over with one big parking lot.

    I don't know if Mud Daubers are wasps or not, but they are good for one thing - they kill spiders.
    I cleared off a bunch of their little mud nests from my porch and all these spider carcases spilled out. Apparently the adults kill the spiders and place them in the nest for the larvae to eat once they hatch.

    Just like John Mayer said to!

  • You mean big yellow taxi? "paved paradise and put up a parking lot"?

    That's going to be one overfed plant.

    I hate yellow jackets so I'm a fan of this video. Though not of this location. Wherever this is, it needs to have an insecticide fogger applied

  • Mark

    I took great pleasure watching this video.

  • spikedeclue

    I hate those bastards, so this is quite cathartic.

  • Jenness

    I'm with you!

  • Wooder

    Its like donut day at work...people die in this also... Work out the weak!

  • FearlessFarris

    "HAHA! Your stings mean NOTHING to me!"
