Wasp report August 2008

Wasp activity has soared during August even with the continuing wet weather. The poor weather all year has meant that wasps are now grabbing every chance they get to forage for food to help their colony survive and prosper, and they are likely to behave more aggressively than normal. The lower availability of aphids means they will be even more interested in human food than usual, and fruit trees are likely to be subjected to a high level of attack by wasps.
