There’s Something … In The Woodshed …

European Hornet Vespa crabro

Not quite a woodshed but a garden shed. Early this morning I heard the deep buzzing first of Britain’s largest wasp, the European Hornet (Vespa crabro), then I saw it scrambling up the shed window trying to get out.

    1. Thank you, Ark πŸ™‚ I loved Dr Who when I was a kid with John Pertwee. Although I was hiding behind the settee most of the time, peeking out occasionally and looking through my fingers πŸ™‚

  1. I was singing the woodshed song in my head as I read all this. Now I’m going to show my ignorance by asking what’s the difference between a wasp and hornet, I’ve never really known? Is a hornet just the largest wasp variety, or something more?
