Bumblebees

Yaxlich is back after his extended Easter break. He hopes that you didn't miss him too much.

He sees that there is currently a crisis in the bumblebee world where mobile phone usage is being blamed for the decline in the number of bees in the UK.

Yaxlich is sad about this. He likes bees. They buzz around in their own merry little way, drunk on pollen and then make pots of honey. He thinks they're very clever to do this and imagines lots of little bees in a miniature glass blowing factory.

He doesn't like wasps, though. As far as he can see wasps serve no purpose. All they do is sting you when you're least expecting it. If they did something useful, like make jam, then he might be more tolerant of them.

I agree.

And may I just say, as a peace-loving, non-violent, pacifist, I had to change my stance on not killing wasps 15 years ago, when one almost killed me (I appear to be very allergic to them).

Now when I see one, I swat it as dead as can be, whilst shouting, "One of your cousins almost killed me, you fucker!".

No, I am not vengeful, really I'm not.

Yaxlich now has a mental image of The Girl swatting wasps in the leather outfit from her picture. It's made his winky go funny.

Mr.X also does not like wasps. Especially after being stung 6 times in one afternoon.
It hurt.
The little ba****ds.

My Dad nearly died last year after being stung by one of the good-for nothing f*ckers, so i'm with you.

Yes, I missed you lots and am so glad you're back. Hope you had a great holiday though. Not too many wasps about.

No, the little bastards don't make jam, but they do eat it! Especially mine.

The do serve a purpose in life though. They provide me with hours of fun like:

a) catch them in an old jam jar and put them in the freezer for a day as punishment for being wasps.

b) feed them to the dog (ever seen a dog chewing a wasp? It's hilarious, but the wasp doesn't think it's funny.

c) stick pins into them and see how they like it.

d) catch them in the jar, pour some petrol in, toss a match in and listen to them imitate a dog when they go "Woooof!"

Ignorminious is not fond of wasps at all but has heard that they kill other garden pests and so are actually quite good.

Ignorminious does not believe this however since next door's kids are still alive.

Mosquitoes.

Bad. Very very bad. Worse than wasps. S'all I have to say.

 

Blogger Yaxlich said ... (12:06 pm) : 

Mr X - Was it 6 different wasps or one persistent one?

John G - Keith has some very good advice on how to get your own back.

Sablonneuse - Yaxlich noticed a lot of wasps flying around the roof of his house today. He hopes they haven't built a nest up there.

Keith - Some excellent advice there. Yaxlich hopes he gets lots of people Googling "things to do to wasps".

Iggy - Yaxlich thinks they attack daddy longlegs. That's another reason for not liking them. Daddy longlegs are cool in an irritating fly in your face kind of way.

GG - Is this a new game? Stinging insect Top Trumps?

 

Anonymous Keith said ... (10:00 pm) : 

Yaxlich has got his seasons wrong as per bloody usual. Daddy Longlegs come out t'ground, fly around a bit and then peg it long before the wasps even wake up. (I think), but then Keith has been at the wine bottle to-night and is feeling a bit poorly.

 

Blogger Sally Lomax said ... (11:01 pm) : 

Pooh bear will be sad, as the price of honey goes up.

I agree about wasps though. Dreadful things, full of disease and goodness knows what...........

and they sting!

 

Blogger Guyana-Gyal said ... (3:32 am) : 

No, it's not a game about who's badder, mozzies are just awful, annoying and mean.

 

Blogger Yaxlich said ... (4:16 pm) : 

Keith - Someone should tell the local wasps as they seem to ignore this information.

Sally - As far as Yaxlich knows, Pooh Bear doesn't work so he can only assume that Pooh steals the honey from the local shops so the increase in price is, therefore, irrelevant.

GG - As opposed to wasps who are nice, pleasant company and good with children?

 

Blogger Guyana-Gyal said ... (9:22 pm) : 

Yes.

 

Blogger Guyana-Gyal said ... (9:23 pm) : 

can you tell i have the flu and am just being idle, and teasing you? :-)

 

Blogger Yaxlich said ... (2:15 pm) : 

Teasing is good sometimes.

He thinks he might have read that on The Girls blog.

He hopes your flu has flown.
