Nature Notes [Oct. 23rd, 2016|11:49 am]
Tony Grist
I felt something tickling the back of my neck and reached round to find what it was- and it stung me and buzzed off. I found it on the stairs later- a very sleepy wasp- and persuaded it to go outside.

BTW Ailz taught the other day me how to tell a wasp from a bee. You look at their waists. Wasps have them, bees don't.

We have more than one wasps' nest on the premises. Most of the time we happily coexist

If it buzzes off, it's a wasp. When bees sting, it's seppuku.

It is for the observer a rather extreme way of sorting them out.

Wasps have a bit more of a temper than bees, but generally they're sweet and harmless as long as you don't disturb them. I remember as a child having a wasp's nest in the crawling space under my bedroom so they'd constantly get into my room! I only got stung once - when a wasps got caught under my duvet... You can imagine why it would have gone into defensive mode.

Well, exactly. As far as this wasp was concerned I was attacking it. We have several wasps' nests on the premises. I'm happy to host them.
