    Aw, it's even giving the dog a kiss. I'll try your methods when the sun is out and we can make good connections.
    Whoops.

    Exactly. If you're doing it right, a wasp can be one of the most loving creatures you've ever seen.

    I made an attempt to hold her, but she flew immediately at my face. Farewell, Admiral Nelson.

    This is very unhealthy because it creates an unstable state remember, these wasps were born to follow calm, submissive energy and this is often at the root of problem behaviors because you have a submissive wasp trying to lead in the only way it knows how. These wasps are often identified by nervous, fearful, or other unwanted behaviors.

    Your goal is to provide calm, assertive leadership to your wasp 100 percent of the time. (Just like s/he would experience in the hive.) This natural balance calm, assertive leadership with calm, submissive behavior nurtures stability and creates a balanced, centered and happy wasp.
    You jes gotta let wasp, be wasp.

    you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth

    Oh well. That saves you the time and expense of buying a litter box and doing the whole house-training thing.

    Check out the smoke they use to sedate commercial honey bees for harvesting. I'll bet it would work for your wasp too.

    Wasps and bees make me cry if they fly next to me. I cringe at the thought D:

    dunno if it works for wasps, but at least with bees, you can tame them with acetone (you can get it from most nail polish removers)
