    I've just been assaulted by what seems like an entire hive flying into my face. :(
    It was only a five minute walk up the road to Sainbury's as well. :(

    Saw 4 wasps in the beer garden last night :(

    And there's plenty of bees in the lavender bush conveniently placed under the card access to my work car park :(

    /has visions of a swarm of bees entering via car window

    I was stung by a bee at Latitude on the weekend. First time since before I could drive...

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Flying ant day here in Surrey to.
    Think a scarf around the chops on the cycle home might be a good idea.

    Try one round your face too.

    Ms ED209 just sent me a text saying she's on her way home and there are flying ants everywhere and they bite! Am I some kind of weirdo in that I've never even heard of these things?
  • Deleted user 22 July 2008 17:42:52
    Ms, not Mrs - at least, not yet ;)

    She's a botherer of a great many things. Well, she's American, what do you expect? ;)

    Little bastards were all over the place when I strimmed my lawn on the weekend. I'm sure that I don't actually have any soil, it's just a mass of ants.

    I saw a load of them today in Northampton on the walk home.

    That is all.

    Still stalking this place, old-school style (UID: 1053)

    It's the wedding flight, when conditions are right, new queens take to the air to find a mate (slightly smaller flying ants), have their wicked way then land somewhere convenient burrow into the ground and build a new army of female workers to tend their underground sugar caves.

    The males get a pretty raw deal as they drop dead as soon as they've shot their load into queenie...

    I was wondering why they all do it on the same day, but Mrs FT explained - they are speed-dating!
