    10th of April and it's started already...

    Lying asleep in bed about 0630 I'm awoken by the sound of a small 2 stroke moped revving-up in my room. I leap out of bed, gently open the curtains and there bashing against the inside of the closed window, is a whopping Jasper. Thinking on my feet and not stopping to get dressed I grabbed a can of deoderant and a copy of C+ and went into battle. The first skirmish of the year was soon over with a bisected wasp on the window cill.

    What's scary is that the Jasper must hev arrived through the en-suite bathroom window, the only one open, and flown right over me... I'm gonna need an early warning system!

    I hate wasps, an' they know it...

    I thought WF was Fnaar. Unless he's got two computers and is ambidextrous then he can't be.

    You can keep your flies n shoot. Us wappies have highly developed social structures doncha know. All winter we've been setting out our plans to annexe Bedford.

    That big wasp bumbling against the inside of your window is a QUEEN wasp who has shared your bedroom with you for the last 6 months and has now woken up feeling in the need of a meal and some sex. She was probably hiding in the curtains or inside your wardrobe.

    i treat about 200 loft a year for wasps.
    at this time of year the ones you are getting in the house are over wintering queens and are half starved, open the window and let them out (got to think of my overtime).
    wasps do a hell of a lot of good keeping other insects under control.
