Wasp report October 2011

October has been unusually warm for the time of year, the eighth warmest in the last 100 years, due to this the life cycle of wasp colonies has been extended into late October and there have been many more stinging incidents than usual due to accidental encounters with groggy and tired wasps.

Take great care in the proximity to existing nests as the inhabitants will be very bad tempered and may react aggressively to what they believe are threats to their colony.
