oh yeh? then how come they've always got time to show up for picnics?
Some big fcuk off ones in Turkey. Brown other than a yellow and black abdomen. ...about twice the size of uk ones......
We've had all this before. It's all down to time-of-the-year. Picnic-hassle is late summer and early autumn stuff, long after breeding is done. In spring they're looking for insects to feed the brood.
I hope to see a few hornets during the next two weeks, in France, though it may be too early in the year for them. Have to admit though, you don't want a nest of those around the house...
Yes, it's a bit of a hornet's nest
Wasps - grrrr. Spring arrives, sunny, warm and your spirits lift.
Then its ruined by those pesky Wasps that buzz around, ruin a good day out, and seem to have no shame on the havoc they cause.
Personally I'd like to stamp on every single one until they are just a mess on the pavement.
This is a Rugby-related thread, isn't it?
I haven't seen any wasps yet, but I've seen some huge bees about, queens I presume. I had one fly into my spokes this morning, made a lovely pinging noise as it bounced of.
they will be hornets, get stung with one of them it is a hospital job for a lot of people
had to evict one today as well , and it was huge
Fair enough... I'd add Basingrad as well (with thanks to Arch).
Time to get my sting cream out and carry it with me on rides. Got stung twice out riding last year, so started to carry sting cream with me, never had much faith in it, but when I got stung on later rides, I was very surprised how quick it took the pain away.
Stopped for Chips and Mr Egg then?
