Re: Creepy crawlies

Hi Chris and all!

there must be a plague of frelons in South West France! I have a nest in the wall with angry frelons in it! The local bee-keeper said to but a spray to kill them and keep the dogs indoors! However no-one appears to have any sprays in stock! Any more suggestions on how to make them move on or die - I do not feel kindly disposed towards them now!

Re: Creepy crawlies

You need the special spray for nests that come out as a jet, not a mist spray, you do it at dusk with plenty of protection against stings.

Equally, don't confuse buzzing and activity with aggressive, if they were actually aggressive you would be full of stings....

....and the numbers are normal AFAIK this year, no plague.

Not quite creepie, but what the hell

This one was taken through my microscope at 50X magnification. Sorry it isn't too clear.

It has to be the smallest spider and web I have ever seen!

I've already spoken to Deauville by telephone, but just to say that I've now put a page on my site for "Frelons" which I hope both supplies the basic details about them and allows people to relax a bit.

Just spotted that the thread has been necroed after more than two years. Although the above link is dead, are the contents available elsewhere, Chris?

Cheers.
