Wasp report June 2013

June began settled and quite sunny but this changed midway during the month becoming unsettled and cooler, towarsc the end of the month it warmed up slightly but the month on the whole was cool for June.

Wasps will be very busy finishing off their nest construction and bringing food home for their fellow inhabitants, they will be busy in our gardens killing caterpillars and aphids and house flies, pollinating plants and flowers, and generally doing a great job of natural pest control and plant maintenance.

The stinging incidents that did occur were mainly as a result of accidental encounters rather than aggression or defensive actions.
