how to get rid of wasp nest?

Posted: 05/07/2014 at 22:24

I have heard of a bee-vac but not seen one in action. It is meant to be gentle. I hope so! If they are exposed to the elements  could you cover them up, perhaps with the lid?  They should be quiet once the light begins to go. The rain is forecast to be quite heavy in many areas. Cold wet bees can be very miserable.

Sounds like honey bees - they just 'appear' when they have swarmed. Wasps build a nest and it takes some time.

Too true. They only began to decline when man interfered.

Cucumbers outdoors?

My crystal lemon and mini munch cues are in the greenhouse. As it's getting quite dark in there with all the foliage, I wondered if is possible to grow them outdoors. I am in Hampshire. 

I do hope someone will know!

 

 

Wild flowers

I know what you mean. I only plant bee flowers, mainly to feed our own honeybees. Do I see them - nope! However, I did not expect the wonderful range of other insects  though - bumbles, solitary bees, hoverflies and so on. Our girls are plain ungrateful!

If I plant them in a flower bed, it should not really be too much of a problem unless there are some chives there too...

I followed all the links and they were most helpful. At least I'm not the only one growling!!  I think it is my fault too - I planted them too close. Next year I'll put them somewhere else well away from anything oniony. Thank you all.

Beginner gardener need advice

I bought a dwarf version many years ago. It lived happily in a pot for a while and then I put it in the garden. It is about 6 feet tall now and flowers well every year. Sorry but I don't remember when it was planted!
