Was a out to do some gardening this afternoon. Went down the greengouse, to get my dives. Out the loft hand one on and suddenly OUCH!! THER was. A wasps in the end of one of the fingers and it sting me on my end of the index finger.

That's my right land out of action again. Was going up the services to play on the fruitees tonight. Had to can that idea. Not sure I'll ne going to work either. Cat see myself pounding away over a keyboard while its throbbing like dis.

I have a fear of wasps and bees, they scare me shiitless, but after 50 years on this earth, never been stung.

My youngest however, was stung twice before she was two...

Basically, when one comes near you, run away in a panicky flap like a girl and they go away. Or maybe a human can run faster than a wasp can fly?

Tis what I do.

stek machine, zero stings.....

You need to go for the wasp slap. Slowly, slowly withdraw. Not panicking at the sting flying thing around you, you draw back. Calmly, softly, quietly....


























































Then BANG! You little bastard!

Works for me but every now and then you get stung.

NO! You bastards - waspies are lovely.

I have rescued them from pub windows before, just pick them up, if you do it gently they don't sting. Only time I have been stung is like you did, putting a hand on them accidentally. Hardly feel it, not like nettles - that still itches after hours.

When I was in Swansea recently, in the Uplands Tavern, my mate's half empty pint was invaded by a wasp, we watched it float in there, drinking an effective 568 pints in two minutes and it was still twitching.

Bastard wasp never got a round in...

Don't listen to Xoggoth boy and girls, he tells lies. He is the deceiver, the trickster, the swindler, the enticer. Believe not what Xoggoth says boy and girls for it is will know, that wasps are the spawn of Satan.

If you run from a wasp they just get caught in your slipstream like in F1 racing and follow you :)

Not if you drive like an F1 woman, they end up brained on a track marshall along with the car...

Me too. I was determined not to pass the fear onto my kids, so sit rigid with terror instead of doing the running away thing. They now chase them for me.

Does anyone else make wasp traps from old jam pots?
Leave a bit of jam up the sides, fill 2/3rds full of water and punch some holes in the lid.

Watch the little feckers get in after the jam but not able to escape they slowly get exhausted and drop into the water and drown.

Sounds a bit barbaric...

Sounds like the sort of thing a complete :winker: would get up to. I see what you did there!
