How To Avoid The Sting! #wasps

Many may be hoping for an Indian summer this month, many except those who are hypersensitive to wasp and hornet stings that is.  For an estimated 150,000 people in the UK one sting could be fatal.  If September proves to be calm and sunny wasp colonies will reach their peak size and release thousands of queens and males.  So how to avoid being stung? Wear white clothing as wasps seem least attracted to the colour and don't make rapid, sudden movements. If a wasp lands on you or gets into your clothing don't move, but let it leave in it's own time.  Don't prune back hedges till November when the wasps have died as some species nest in hedges.
