At the risk of sounding like a weather summary here is Wasp Watch for August 2015 – the weather does seriously affect the survival and health of most winged insects however, so we hope it is relevant to these posts.
Well it was wet. And cool. Worse in the South and South East (wettest August for nearly 40 years, again). And ….. unsettled, which is the word I think we use most regularly when describing the effect weather has on the health of our little yellow and black friends.
Notwithstanding yet another mostly cool wet year so far, wasp numbers seem to be resilient and on the increase.
Which we think is a good thing.
