    Has decided it wants a burrow in the middle of my bonfire. It's going to get a nasty surpise tonight (or do I wait until Good Fryday and have Hot Cross Buns?)

        I can understand why.
        That's a pretty poor excuse for a bonfire.:biggrin:

          Discovered a couple of days ago that this year's bonfire has got a wasp's nest in it.

          They are going to get a nasty shock!

              Doesn't smoke calm them down, like what it does with bees :ideaIPB: + I'll torch them light my bonfire on a cold night when they're docile.
