cranky jaspers

lady at stable door: I live in that house there, we’ve just had a wasp nest treated and those left alive are a bit cranky, probably best to keep the cats in and the doors and windows shut

wendy: there’s a lot of them about this year

5 bits of lovely banter on “cranky jaspers”

    ‘those left alive’?

    Has Rentokil only partially treated her nest, leaving enough wasps so that autumn picnics in the orchard can be spoiled in the traditional way by a few cider-sozzled jaspers (who have been imbibing from the rotten fruit)?

    How thoughtful.

    It’s never instant death for every wasp associated with the nest. even with mine there was an hour or so before all of them died. It is the way of the wasp control world. It was very thoughful to warn me and the kitties.

    Well I’ve learnt something else today. I didn’t know that all the wasps don’t get killed instantly. It was nice of her to let you know.

    I sit corrected. I would have supposed that the initial assault – including, presumably, the removal of the nest – would see off the lot, bar a few stragglers out on missions.

    during daylight hours most of the worker wasps are out of the nest, if it is removed when they return they can be really angry. I was told to leave mine in place for at least 4 weeks after the insecticide was applied – multiple fascinating reasons for this. It was definitely worth paying for a professional service to ‘deactivate’ it
