    Really augurs well for a wasp free summer and autumn.
    Hate the little twots, my wife screams and runs off when she sees one.
    Had a surfeit of hornets last year.

    My Uncle Brian's mate, 'Big Daft Keith', invented wasps.

    Someone told me that if you kill a wasp it release chemicals which attracts other wasps - not sure how true this is!

    had a few in our Orangery the other day... they looked as if they were about to begin a nest build... I totally removed their planning permission.

    I dont mind them. Wasps generally only sting if they feel threatened, so panicking and flapping your arms about - while understandable - just increases the risk. Best to let them go about their business, especially after summer when they're short of food and a tad grumpy.
