 i,ve recently put up two nest boxes in my garden hoping the resident blue tits would nest in them.after a few weeks of blue tits surveying the nests & entering the nest box it all whent quite,so a quick  peek into the nest box to see if anything was in there & sure there was but not a birds nest but a begining of a wasp nest,not just in one box but both,now i no wasps are good for the garden but  i prefer the blue tits,should i rid the wasps or leave the boxes's till next year and clean them out in the winter,thanks dm.
