WASP SURVIVAL GUIDE
Come late August, visitors are shocked to see bakery display cabinets crawling with wasps. What soon becomes apparent, though, is the nonchalant reaction the locals have to this black and yellow invasion; this is not a one- off affair. So while you’re resisting the urge to scream and run for cover, take heed of the following tips: If wasps are buzzing
around, keep your cool and just ignore; they’ll eventually realize there isn’t any food around and fly away. If eating outside, however, accept that you will have company, and be sure to check your fork before taking a bite. Place coasters or saucers on top
of your drinks to help prevent any unwelcome swimmers. And if you do get stung, apply half a fried onion smeared in honey to the affected
area. Berliners swear by it!
