Graveyard of the Wasp

Photo of dead wasps lying on my windowsillThe photograph shows my living room windowsill. There are five dead wasps lying there. Now my house may be untidy but this isn’t like a year’s accumulation. These have arrived since I cleared away a bunch of wasp carcasses yesterday. Where are they coming from? Why are they choosing my living room windowsill on which to meet their maker? Those I’ve seen flying around look lackadaisical and on their last wings but that doesn’t explain their origin. I’ve cleared the sill, let’s see how many more turn up.

Well, now the mystery of the deceased wasps continues. After having recently found two ex-wasps in my house close to my front door, this weekend I discover another. This time, in the lab, hidden behind an EFM3 power supply. This is a room with no windows for pity’s sake! Where are they coming from?!

The thing which bugs me (pardon the pun) is that there are two windows in my living room, less than a foot apart. Yet the bloody wasps never die on one of them, only the other.
