After returning back home from a very lengthy series of craft fairs and trade shows, I decided to go out with the forester earlier this evening to look around, especially in the high towers as we have a number of them. Am pretty glad we did - in our favourite a hornet decided to nest there and have a large family.
I just found out hornets can sting multiple times due to a lack of barb on the stinger (twice in my case). As the high towers are enclosed, more like high boxes than high seats, the local beekeeper has offered to smoke out the nest for us. From the same person have just learnt WD40 is the best pain suppressant, so out with the germolene - man its really painful to sit down.
