Eradication management regime.Which is why I try to catch queens this time of year, it’s part of my integrated management regime.
Integrated wasp management utilizes wasps for their ecological benefits and manages them when they become a nuisance. Best of both worlds. If all the beekeepers in the UK followed your model it would have a significant impact. Queen wasps naturally have a high mortality rate circa 1499 dead for each one that survives so killing 'just a few' more does make a difference. Want healthy OSR without pesticides. Have a strong wasp population and it'll knock the flea beetle into a cocked hat so your bees can enjoy!
