I like mine to drink from a jar with a little jam, half full of water and a lid with holes big enough for them to get in but not out.......and drown.
They ruin outdoor eating and their sting is really painful ....
Oops sorry I meant to say that I got stung 3 times in almost the same spot and I must proof read better before hitting submit: - minor, child and funny not monir, chile and funn
leave a bin liner of dead leaves around, guarenteed nesting distination for most agressive wasps got stung 3 times, little B*@x**s!!!
I bought one of those Grey fleecy bags which look like a wasp's nest when hung up in the garden. The theory is that wasps never build a nest close to one already in existence. It has worked so far, and I haven't even hung it up yet!!!
Seriously, the idea of luring any animal to it's death is cruel, especially when they may not have even come near without the bait!!!
Rosemary Smith, are you referring to my comment? I think the faux wasp nest is an extremely good idea, but having been ill most of this summer I haven't got around to hanging it up. The rest was a joke.
I was taught when I was young not to antagonise them, with the result that I have never been stung, but I think the autumn is particularly dangerous because the poor things are dying and drowsy and can sting if accidentally picked up with fallen fruit or leaves.
If these things are explained to children quietly and calmly I'm sure they would take note. Certainly neither of my sons have been stung and they are both animal lovers now they are adults.
