Wasps [Apr. 3rd, 2014|08:58 am]
Tony Grist
Ailz drew the curtains this morning and a wasp flew straight into the bedroom. I wafted it out again. Another had secreted itself in my mother's bedroom slipper and stung her as she was getting up.

I don't hate 'em. I'm sure they have a place in the great scheme of things. I'd just prefer them to stay outside.

Ouch. Nasty little critters they are.

Poor thing. There it was- all snug and warm in the fluffy slipper and then someone trod on it....

I have to admit that I've only ever been stung by wasps in self-defence. Of course it was often their stupidity in not taking care where they landed -- for example on my sandal under the arch of my foot! -- that led to me inadvertently starting to squash them. :(

Exactly. It's not as if they go looking for trouble.

Ouch! I haven't had a wasp sting in many years. No ill effects on your mother I hope?

She seems to attract them.

On the other hand they don't seem to hurt her that much.

Yes, indeed. There are also lots of bumble bees about and them I'm glad to see.

It is the time of year that Queen wasps are scouting for a place to build the nest. That's why you see lone wasps now. This past weekend in Norfolk we had several come into our friends' house.

There are tons of these things where I live in the Spring...they are REALLY bad in the American South.

We had to deal with several hornets' nests last year.
