Very busy dealing with wasps in Swindon and Wiltshire today! Not very big yet but very busy they also look fairly small this year.
Fertilised queen wasps emerge from hibernation and start working on new nests in the spring as the weather gets warmer.
By the summer months up to 300 eggs are produced every day and up to 5,000 adult wasps work to feed grubs and build the nest structure.
An early abundance of fruit in the fields and gardens gives better feeding conditions in which they can thrive,
Wasps go crazy on the fruit, it makes them slightly drunk, and this is when they are most likely to sting. Currently nests are small and easy to deal with and they are fairly subdued, this will change as time goes on.
Wasps do not die after one sting – they can, and will, sting you quite a few times.
