Wasp report May 2013

May has brought a few nice days where the Queens who have survived the Winter, and the first members of the colonies, will be out fetching food and building materials to get the nest developed and to feed the wasps born by the Queen. Unfortunately for them the turn back to wet cold weather will do their chances of survival no good at all. For those humans unlucky enough to be suffering from a nest being built in their lofts or roof spaces, take consolation that at least you are helping conserve this beneficial species.
