Buzz off stripey!

funny-wasp-scary-bigI have never liked wasps and indeed I have never thought that they had any value or purpose. But in fact they are remarkably useful. For almost every insect that we think of as a real pest there is a wasp that has evolved to keep it under control. This can be just by eating their prey or laying eggs in the bodies of their insect prey in a parasitical way. I feel moderately better about wasps now, but I’ll still never like them!

I've been on the planet for a more than half a century and I've lost all my hair but not my enthusiasm for life, my wife, reading and music! I started my first blog; With Just A Hint Of Mayhem in February 2009. In May 2011 I began two sister blogs to that first one; With Just A Hint Of Amelia and With Just A Hint Of Learning. A while later I also added the more random Stars In My Glasses to the family :-) Feel free to check them all out and let me know what you think!
