Watch: Drone takes sting out of hornets’ nest

Luckily we don’t have to worry about hornets in South Africa, but did you know hornets are actually just a type of wasp? Although we don’t have to worry about their larger and more robust cousins, wasps are common throughout South Africa and roof overhangs provide ideal nesting spots.


The DJI Mavic Pro appears to be the most effective assault drone of choice because it keeps its position well even as its blades slice into the nests. As you can see in a few of these clips, the hornets make an unsuccessful attempt to counterattack the drone but they merely bounce off its propellers.
