    WASP!!!!!

    Just had a HUGE wasp fly in the office (hatethemhatethemhatethemhatethem).
    It's mid-November! Just die!!!!
    In case you were wondering I had to chase it out of the windows with an old PC Pro. At arms length.

    I'd have thrown a PC at it. Hate doesn't come close; I LIKE bees though!

    I take the manly approach - Open the door/window and hide behind the sofa until it's gone.

    Putting some pc's in storage the other day and moved some old bags revealing a small nest and also disturbing them at the same time, ended up swatting them with pieces of conduit before giving up and getting someone in to remove it.

    We have a nest in the roof that pest control companies cannot find, Ive been stung twice in one day when a wasp managed to get underneath my shirt!

    We get them appear and try to fly out my window, The other day in the toilet next door there was a swarm of them trying to get out! The caretaker counted up 26 that he had killed.

    So it was your fault! I just got stung. Someone mentioned there was a wasp in the room but I paid no attention and then felt a tickling on my leg. Rolled up my trouser leg and couldn't find anything until I suddenly feel a nip. Slap leg and stunned wasp falls out. Little get.

    What's the point of wasps? They don't seem to have any value in the animal kingdom.

    I'm kind to most bugs that appear in my house - bees, spiders, even earwigs, but wasps? They get the business end of a magazine every time. Same with hornets.

    They keep the population of other plant eating bugs down by being aggressive little douches and killing them and anything else that gets in their way.
