PSA: Drunk, Belligerent Wasps Are Terrorizing Beer Gardens

Wasps are not chill drunks.

How much cider does it take to get a wasp drunk is not, as it turns out, a riddle. Rather, it's a real problem, considering the answer is "very little" and the result is irritable, sting-happy wasps.

Recently, the Daily Mail (stay with me) proclaimed that, "Britain is under attack from 'lager lout' wasps who are going on stinging rampages after getting drunk on fermented fruit and leftover pub-garden cider," which is big, if true. Their story cites the Sussex Wildlife Trust, so we reached out to the British conservation charity ourselves to find out whether this was indeed a whole new way that the world just sorta sucks.
