Its in the woods, somewhere. First became aware of it on a hot night a couple weeks ago when I heard it buzzing in the trees(I am guessing that they do this like bees to keep their hive cool). It is loud enough to be mistaken for an air conditioner, so its pretty big.
I have looked for it during the day, but the woods are too thick, cant see it, and they don't seem as active, so I can't track them. At night they have started to zero in on my lights, and of course there are more and more of them. Tonight I finally got swarmed. I deal with stings better than average, but still, got tagged.
The road is about a seven degree incline, unpaved flint. While I can pull a decent turn of speed, its just not enough to outrun them. I actually had to turn around and book it back down the hill towards home.
Just throwing this out as an interesting hiccup in choosing a slow moving vehicle where ones body is exposed. Living rural, I am used to wild life(the trick to running over a copperhead at dusk is to have fenders, keep moving fast, and in the split seconds you have to judge, try to keep the foot on the head side up.(I wear sandals)If it looks like a corn snake, hog nose, a black snake, or other friendly serpent, you can stop or bunny hop, but in case you dump it on the gravel, better be sure...).
