Wasp report June 2008

A good month for those who don’t like wasps. A cool June following the unsettled and generally poor weather all year so far has meant that wasp colonies are still establishing themselves, foraging wasps are still gathering building materials for the nests, and they arent causing us humans too many problems. Human outdoor leisure time is probably relatively low, so reports of stinging incidents are low also. One note of warning would be that when the number of existing colonies is low, the size of those which survive can be much larger, so be vigilant in nest spotting.
