Does anybody know when I can reasonably expect wasps to leave their nest?
There is a nest below ground in the corner of one of my raised beds and the wasps are still very active. I've left it alone all summer because I know that wasps can be a gardener's friend.
The problem I have is that my landscaper has been booked (for some time) to start work in that area at the beginning of November. He will be lifting and re-laying concrete slabs which abut this corner of the raised bed. He will be replacing the fence at the back of the bed and also reducing the size of the same raised bed.
The wasps haven't really bothered me all summer but I suspect they will be seriously disturbed and angry if they are still there when the landscaper starts and I feel I have a duty of care to him and his assistant.
I was hoping the wasps might have started to pack their bags about now but they look as busy as ever...
Anybody know for sure?
