The ex-girlfriend came over to get some soil for her indoor plants so I grabbed a bag of peat and chucked it onto the decking to trowel a bit out. To my surprise a cloud of angry and determined wasps came ripping out of the peat bag to inflict revenge on the destroyer of their habitat. I gallantly pushed past her and tried to flee through the garden doors into the house - but not before a number had attached themselves to my retreating back and started stinging. The stings are painful - almost as sore as the wounds my ex-inflicted on me 'in an attempt to beat them off me' with a wooden stake she happened to be holding. Anyway... the buggers are buzzing around the peat bag and show no sign of calming down. How I can I get rid of them without the use of petrol, crow scarers or carbon monoxide? Ta.
