UK invaded by 200 billion bad-tempered ‘drunk’ German wasps – Pest

The UK has been invaded by more than 200 billion German wasps, who sting for no reason.

German Wasp

The Sun reported that the half-inch pests are bigger as well as angrier than the common wasp, have three black spots on their face and can sting repeatedly.

Colonies can contain up to 10,000 insects and they can instantly send signals to mobilise the entire nest to attack an intruder.

Experts said that once the pests had given their queens enough nectar, they were free to steal meat from barbecues, or feast on fermenting fruit, making them “tipsy and extra bold”.
