I wonder if they have migrated to the south west, there is no shortage down here. We have a large wasp nest on a bit of waste ground in our garden where OH parks his truck. They are fascinating to watch and he parks up and sits there observing.
They didnt like him there at first and showed signs of aggression but later they were very calm about him. My parents wanted it destroyed but we just couldnt do that. As Dove says, they are marvelous at hoovering up greenfly.
My daughter lives in Cornwall and for the first time one of her children was stung.
My grandsons friend has the most awful phobia and had to ask to leave the class room because of them.
Interesting to hear from Verdun has
to say if they are any further west?
