    Wasps 2

    Saw in a garden centre the other day something called a 'Waspinator' apparently an artificial wasps nest that you hang around the patio etc to keep the wasps away, has anyone used these, and do they work? I wonder if they would work in an apiary?

    I can see why it is classed as invasive, just had a walk around a local golf club in Leigh, Lanc's, see photo. There is quite a large brook amongst that lot! Still wish I had it near my apiary;)
