Sitting down, minding my own business when a sodding big wasp buzzes in.
On the basis all doors and windows are shut, I suspect it's found a way
in from the loft - probably through the weird slatted wooden ceiling
we inherited over the breakfast area. It's insulated above, but there is
a path to the loft through it.
So I take it any wasps in my loft haven't died off :(
It'll be a queen. I find them from time to time in really odd places.
two in the house this autumn, the previous year it was one in the
greenhouse, one in a stack of overturned plant pots and another under
a mat of ivy on a wall. Never seen a nest nearby for about three
years locally but they still pester the hell out of my honey bees.
One dead wasp queen now = a few thousand less wasps later this
year=more honey bees = more honey = more money :)
