A rise in the number of zombies would precipitate a corresponding rise in the number of yellow jackets as zombies, i.e., rotting corpses, would provide a movable feast. A ready source of decaying meat.
Thus I would need a flame thrower to defend myself from the swarms of yellow jackets, especially in more mild climates like California and much of the southwest, and the southeast.
Thus I would have to make my way to Montana or the Dakotas. Possibly Canada. The growing season is short but the winters are harsh, which would, in turn, freeze zombie appendages, causing them to fall off, and the climate would kill yellow jackets.
Yes, I know. Perseverating…
But damn, I’m suffering from major post-traumatic stress disorder! However I have learned I can be desensitized. And it will be effective and permanent after five years of treatment. Life will go on.
