    We get them quite regularly and they don't appear to do any harm, we also have them in the garden as well, they are not aggressive and soon disappear.

    thay are soetery bugs they don't live in swarms and normally just use existing cracks and crevasses on south facing wall they are not aggressive and only the female has a sting but you would have to piss it off big time for it to sting:Eeek:

    We usually get them and they are only around for about 3 weeks ..... I find them quite fun to watch and happy they chose to live with us.

    They are no trouble and not agressive ..... please dont kill them.
