Go Back   VW Forum - VZi, Europe's largest VW, community and sales > Community > Chat/Discussion

Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

They're south African Death Wasps, one sting can be fatal to small animals.

Was on the BBC news site earlier this week about them getting blown over here.

We had those little buggers in our kitchen one time when I was a kid. They were feeding on an old box of cereal that no-one liked, and because no-one ever chose to eat it the box was in the cupboard for ages, we couldn't work out where they were coming from. I used to squash them with my fingernail with a loud 'crunch.' Think they are a type of weevil?
