Pest Control, Chinese Style


A huge nest of hornets responsible for a wave of terror and one death was assaulted by army units in a bid to annihilate it.

The gigantic hornet nest, 1.6m wide and situated out of reach up a tree, had recently been responsible for numerous hornet attacks, including one fatality, and was forcing many villagers to take lengthy detours if they wished to avoid being stung.

With the local fire brigade unable to fell the tree due to the nearby buildings, an urgent call for assistance was made, and it was answered by a nearby PLA reconnaissance battalion, who dispatched a squad armed with flamethrowers to the scene, complete with chemical warfare suits and anti-bee nets.

Two bursts from their flamethrowers reduced the nest to flaming mass of scorched insects.
