Queen wasps

Posted by blueberrytalk on December 24, 2013

A few years ago queen wasps hibernated in our wood pile. When the wood was brought inside for burning in our fireplace the wasps would become active. We were kept busy with the fly swatter but the following summer there were fewer wasp nests.

This year the queen wasps have hibernated in unused Mason bee tubes.

This fall other beekeepers reported loss of colonies due to the number and aggression of wasps.
