Season 2015

Post by dermy on Sat Mar 14, 2015 7:16 pm

Just thought I would tell everyone what my Wasps plans for 2015 are so far:

1-Get a small colony into a bird-house and leave them be!
2-Update daily [if possible] on their progress
3-Maybe leave a nest in the shed [if they make one there] at least until they have first workers, then if they are a nuisence move them into their own setup else where.]

That's about it I'm keeping things super simple this Season!

I'm not a bird fan, they are really loud and annoying. The only thing I noticed is the robins are here again.

Is that because dawn is when you go to sleep? Razz

Sometimes earlier. But it seems every day [or night Razz] is getting longer and every night shorter.

I have to start getting ready! I read on various forums that for me [I wrote Journals on them] that May is the month that Wasp Nests start.

It takes a lot more then just finding them, now that my Tree that I used to keep the Nest Box in is gone I have to make a new one in the last known trees that I have, they aren't really trees, bushes.

It gets too much sunlight and we have to cut the grass there. Plus in a tree cotton can't get to it.

I read that if you don't want wasps in your garden you should put an empty wasps nest up, then other wasps avoid the area as they are territorial.

Yes I've heard that too, but I've also tried it at my grandmas and it doesn't seem to work for foraging wasps, it might however work to discourage queens from starting nests around your yard.

I will have to go snooping at the end of May for Wasp nests again Razz
