Although dangerous for dogs as I know from personal experience don't forget they are also very dangerous for human too if you breathe in their hairs or touch one.They can and do cause very skin rash and anaphalactic shock

We saw them as far north as Brittany last year.
Not long before they arrive here I suppose!

There have been huge amounts of nests in public places this year. In the past it has been apparent that local authorities have kept them as clear as possible (in Spain anyway).

I have a video that I took recently on my YouTube channel - hope it helps to show people what they and their nests look like to folks who haven't seen them first-hand before.
