The Wasp Dilemma: Solved

A fortnight ago, I found a wasps’ nest clinging to the underside of one of the pallets that I wanted to use to make some compost bins. I moved it to the top corner of the plot, nicely out of the way, pending a decision on what to do about it.

Well a decision is no longer necessary. Something else got there first:

What remains of the wasps' nest

I’m not sure what predated the wasps’ nest, but it’s probably a good thing, so whatever it is I’m grateful.

    I’m not sure whether I’m happy about this post or not. Just catching up with the blog and disturbed to see you put the next up near my plot! Happy to see it had gone though – what eats wasps though, pheasants? ;>) For future reference, the technique required for dealing with a wasp nest is a large bonfire. And many layers of clothing.

    Perhaps we should have consulted more widely… Sorry, Rob. :)

    Given that if you leave them alone then they tend to leave you alone, won’t damage crops, and are rumoured to eat things like greenfly, I still think that they just might have been worth keeping around rather than burning. Too late now though.

    No, they’re just evil Tim!
