Today I witnessed a very small miracle....(well it was to me)
I found what I thought was a dying bumble bee in a box at work....very lethargic and on it's last legs so to speak....
Now just the other day I'd heard a radio show which said if you find such a bee try and feed it honey or sugar water and they may revive!?
Anyhoo thought I'd give it a go ...tried a spoonful of honey on the little critter....and would you bloody believe it the little thing seemed to get stuck for a few minutes....then took off into the air with a mighty Buzzz...I was so happy....a little miracle in a rather mundane day of work.
Now....onto wasps.....They will sting without warning and can be pretty aggressive even when not provoked....however "if you kill one a hundred come to the funeral" (old Norfolk saying) the reason for this is that when they die they release a pheromone that attracts other wasps...so the more you kill the more will be attracted to the spot!
I don't swat anything and am left alone!
Peace to the insects dudes.
