Electricity meter reader gets shock


3 of the 5 wasp nests

3 of the 5 wasp nests

It would have happened, except that our electricity consumption is read remotely.

I counted no less than 8 distinct paper wasp nests in the meter cupboard.

I was alerted to the occupation by seeing wasps crawling up one of the cables and through a hole into the cupboard.

I got rid of the live wasps, and then the dead wasps, but I left the nest structures because they’re so clever.
