Summer of the Wasps

The bees that had come to visit had a short stay. This summer had the largest wasp population we’ve seen since moving here. It can be difficult to locate the nests of the bald faced wasps and others that dwell in the brush.

Strangely enough, we had a new swarm move in today. September 21! That’s very late in the season to try to get established. Looks like I’ll be brewing up some 2:1 sugar water and feeding them a warm cuppa each morning. We’ll see if they can make it to spring.
