Facts about an enemy – la vespa! For day 20 of napowrimo 2015

20 Apr
They come in every colour

They hunt out insect pests
They’re worldwide except polar
They chew up wood for nests
Winter wipes them out with cold
Only the queen survives
She then begins again to build
Her colony – not hive!
Birds, bats, badgers eat them
Though most mammals shrink back
And wisely – if you swat one
All its friends attack!
It’s a fascinating creature
But do remember its
Final shocking feature
Of anaphylaxis!
Fact-based rhyme for day 20 of napowrimo!
