English term or phrase:wasp(s)
“He had a shock of yellow hair and amazing white teeth... gapped with regular intervals so that when he smiled it looked as if a miniature piano keyboard had been set into his mouth. He was autistic, although at the outset we didn’t know it. He first appeared a hot day in late summer, just walked in through the door with the wasps and the rank tarry stink of the sea.”
this is Brit. English. Is this “wasps” just the kind of bee or sth else?
