    Wasps hate to be disturbed in their nest so usually pick a spot where that is unlikely to happen.....or so I've heard.... :thumbsup:

    With its withered claw still grasping that 10 bob note in your wallet....

    You don't want to disturb a dead wasp I can tell you. I have years of experience with flies
