    Any wasps and flies what enter my house are killed on sight.

    If I get stung by a wasp its a blue light journey for me as I am allergic to the stings (and of course flies spread diseases).

    All other invertebrate species are either left alone or captured in plastic containers and then released alive elsewhere. I even tolerate spiders these days – used to be scared but have got used to them now, and provided they stay in one place they do not bother me unduly.

    why are wasps so angry? someone must have done something some time to really piss them off.

    in the spring the eat aphids then they have nothing to do all summer so they go nuts.

    there’s a metaphor for life in there somewhere

    part of my jobs nuking wasps when they make a nest on the golf course

    I usually fill the nest with petrol ( about half a jerry can ) then leave a trail to a safe distance and light the trail

    BOOM!

    no more wasps:ar15: :toxic:

    Wasps are the coolest looking insect ever! Whoever designed them should win an award. They don’t generally bother me unless they look dopey or agitated. Otherwise I let them land on me and have a chat.

    As for May Flys & July Bugs they are hideous. It doesn’t help that July Bugs are blind and attracted to heat. It means they head straight for you and usually stick in your hair. Haven’t seen any this year thank god.

    If you catch them in a glass and then use a bit of cloth to carefully hold the wasp with the thorax pointing out back wards, you can then tie a bit of cotton around the thorax and hold them on a lead… or collect a few together and tie them to something you then have your own personal flying guards ๐Ÿ˜‰

    its easyer with bees as you can freeze them which dose no harm to them as they hibernate in the winter and let themselves get frozen and then defrost when it gets warmer, just a bit safer as you aint likley to get stung by a frozen 1!!:crazy_dru

    Nah wasps are better, because they are more likely to sting you…. adds to the challenge ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And as bees can only sting once they wouldn’t be so effective as a guard as wasps would!raaa
