    Default Quick Locating Video

    I got myself a dash cam off of Amazon the other day. I got it all set up in my car so I thought I would share a locate I did. The car has to be running for the cam to remain on so I won't be doing too many of these.

    Here is a link to the Dash Cam if you are interested in it

    Here is the video. It is short and boring except for the moment I realize there are a couple of wasps in the ped I just opened. This will also let those who are curious to know what I look like. Enjoy.

    I tell my newbies to kick peds before they open them and listen to see if that made something inside angry.

    If stinging insects I spray with wasp killer and come back after the insecticide has done it's job.

    To reach into an unsafe area like that, like across fence to electric meter when dogs in yard, I put the ring clamp on the extension pole.

    I would too. I have opened peds and have been sent running down the road from the swarm of wasps in a ped. Now THAT would be funny.

    I use a dash cam every day. It actually shows a accident I had August of last year. I had a medical issue and had a accident.

    I've tried listening but my hearing isn't the best (too many concerts and a few years spent on a ship in the Navy) so I can't hear them. I normally lift the ped up about half way and if anything flies out I drop it.

    Same here, Steve. I found kicking the ped first just gets you a bunch of angry bees and now you can't get close enough to get the bee spray inside where the nest is. If I hear them in there I yank the lid off and get the hell away so the hive is exposed to a direct hit when I come back with the spray can.

    2 days ago I spayed near a unknown underground bumble bee nest. Pissed them off real good. Had to go back for my transmitter, they got me twice.

    I actually put my ground rod through an underground yellow jackets nest. The entrance was covered by some leaves. All I saw was a swarm coming out. I broke my watch swatting at them some how. I got stung three times. I had to use my jumper cables to hook the loop in my transmitter bag and pull it to safety. Unfortunately the ground did not pull the ground rod out. I had to use my spade shovel and roll a small log close enough to provide leverage. Slide the shovel head under the ground tee and stomped on the shovel handle. Ground rod came out and once they settled down again i was able to the ground rod.
