Whilst many people have been cursing the rain that plagues these Bastard Isles, I as a Ginger son of these lands have welcomed the refreshment to our aquifers. If I am being totally honest the cloud has provided much needed protection from the mighty power of the Sun[god].* The rain will stop, the clouds will clear allowing the breath of summer to awaken our green and pleasant fields. But it comes at a price.
On hot sunny days we are far more likely to meet the minions of the most evil entity in the known universe. It is when the sun shines that the Baron is at his strongest. It is no coincidence that the common wasp is known as Vespula vulgaris. It is also no coincidence that Vespula germanica is a plague flying, schhtinging Germanss. They must be exterminated from the face of this earth
Most people think of wasps or yellowjackets as being a nuisance or pest, especially around barbecues, picnics, beer gardens, ice cream, cake and fruit stalls and fruit trees. What is surprising is the number of people who live in fear of these insects. It is estimated that between 4 to 8 out of every 1000 people are at serious risk from wasps. Many hundreds and possibly even thousands of people die each year as a result of an allergy to a wasp sting. Even in people who do not have an allergy, wasp stings can be a problem. A mature wasp will almost always have a poison sack that is swarming with bacteria. If stung by such a wasp there is a real risk of severe infection and a painful wound...**
This is pro Baron propaganda and must be ignored.
They must be exterminated so they can threaten us no more.
Apart from the fact that wasps sting and bite, they can also cause other problems. Because wasps scavenge in faeces, they are prime carriers of disease especially where they come into contact with human food. Wasps will attack bee hives and kill bees. In late summer and throughout autumn, wasps do untold damage to fruit crops. During nest building, wasps cause damage to timber and trees which they use for making their wood pulp paper nests.**
