Martin Fennell asked the Naked Scientists:
Last night my wife woke me to rid our bedroom of a queen wasp.
I trapped it between the wall and the lid of an old babies bottle, steam sterilizer.
The lid had holes in the top to allow the steam to escape, that the wasp made a beeline (sic) for.
I noticed the wasp attempted to get out of the hole backwards (sting first).
I was wondering if this is normal wasp behaviour as I sort of expected it to try head first?
Thanks for a great show.
