Not a bee Wagger.Looks like either a wasp or a hornet ! If quite large probably a hornet ! Having been stung by both my guess would be hornet ! Ouch !

See what you mean by 'ouch' then. I seem to be lunch for horse flies recently - so much so I've had to buy a can of repellant.

Ouch and ouch again ! If you pull them of often the head gets left behind...and thats what causes the infection! Nasty !

Obviously sweet, Milky. They never came near me when I was young and sour.
No sense, no feeling, that's me, Bonkers. I never know they've been there until the bite comes up and itches - and itches.

Well caught, its funny how some people have the odour that attracts insects and others don't all the gardening I have ever done and I have done loads over the years my gardens my mums and my sons and neighbours never have I been stung or bitten but then I do not sweat either.

You're very lucky on both counts - if I dig in hot weather, it drips off the end of my nose, lol.
