Trying to complete a long and very boring report trying to justify the impacts on wildlife of yet another stupid and un-needed housing scheme and associated infrastructure.
When first seen I thought it was one of my ladies come to see what I was up to.......instead it was a bxxxd wasp on the other side of the glass window come to torment me and out of reach of my ruler.....!
Distraction therapy was good though
Any wasps or hornets you see at this time of year up until about mid May will be QUEENS so everyone zapped now means a whole nest full less in August.
The queen builds a small nest and raises small numbers of workers at a time and is actively feeding them until their numbers are sufficient to sustain the nest (mid May) she then remains in the nest and concentrates on laying.
My traps are all deployed and baited - good hunting Mike
