The 'string' is the everyday name for the 37(I think, I'm out so can't check my copy) entry. It appears in the grid, from near the top left and makes it way along.

yep got that thanks......final resting place, move ??
Close the trap (this will leave 4 empty cells on either side of the open position). You should then have a 2x4 central rectangle - the final resting place for two things that flew).
You've got the 2 (ex)fliers from the V... and the A... extra letters from clues, and if you've put them in the right order you'll have real words throughout (ignoring gaps).
...the V and the S (not 'A', my typo, sorry).

I ve already put the wasp and the flea in the unclued down spaces ....don't know what you mean by "close the trap" ?..join the V to the P ?
Yes, the V from row 4 moves across to be alongside the P, and then the E from row 5 moves across etc etc.
...and you leave gaps where the original positions of V+P were on row 4, ditto row 5 etc etc.
