They absolutely decimated all the plums on our tree in the space of about 2 days a few weeks ago. You couldn’t get near the tree for the damn things. Just spent 4 days in Vilnius and they saw their way clear to landing on every meal I had and helping themselves to some. Greedy sodsPosted 4 years agoonewheelgoodSubscriber
We have a large oak tree in our garden, inhabited at this time of year by some kind of insect which produces nectar. This falls on our cars which are parked below. Wasps like this nectar, and typically there will be 40 or 50 wasps on my car. You have to be pretty careful when getting into the car that none of the buggers follow you in. In previous years I’ve tried killing them, but there seems to be a pretty infinite supply of wasps so it never made much difference.Posted 4 years agoImabigkidnowSubscriber

See something fly to my arm in the corner of my eye.
Stung a split second later, completely unprovoked.
Shake my arm, swear really loud (unfortunately in front of the kiddies)
get stung again.
shake my arm again .. wasp still on there .. stung again
See sense, flick it off, stamp on it.
Then 4 hours later, almost a similar occurance but I was ready for it as it landed this time and swept straight away.toby1Member
So far this year I’ve killed about 40 … and enjoyed everyone of those.
Yesterday I took off a flipflop, knocked the little bugger out of mid air by throwing it at him, then crushed him with it. Flipflops are great wasp bats!
I got stung by a bee last week, I’ve not killed any of them and don’t plan to – it was trapped and panicked though.Posted 4 years agosamuriMember
I like it when you have some dead big tough guys who think they’re rocking cool, just walking along and then a wasp flies over to them and they’re all like EEEK and AAARRRGH and running around like little girls.
And for people who attract wasps.Posted 4 years ago
Wasps like sugar don’t they. Don’t eat sugar, wasps stop liking you.legendMember
any eating or drinking outside beware!!
Outside? Outside you say?? That’s nothing, we’ve got a nest in the eaves (converted attic so bugger all room in there) and the little shits like to make an appearance in the house. And, of course, the room they choose to use to make an appearance?? The bloody bathroom! Appearing from behind the toilet of all places 😯

What Drac said. I was eating Sunday lunch at a pub outdoors yesterday, I had 4 wasps on/around me. The girl on the table was doing her nut, typical girly around wasps thing. I had to tell her to stop waving her arms around as both she and I would no doubt get stung. She didn’t listen, luckily her and her fella buggered off before the wasps or I lost our tempersPosted 4 years ago
