Wasps Washed Out?

There were a fraction of wasp nests around Essex and Suffolk last year leading to a drop in demand for wasp nest removal to around 10% of those treated in 2011.

The mild weather of the very early spring period encouraged Queen wasps to emerge early from hibernation.  This followed by a very wet and cold April and May had a detrimental effect on the Queen wasps that had commenced their nest building, and may also have affected many Queen wasps still in their hibernation cocoons.  The consequence has been that the wasp population in terms of the number of wasp nests was very small of the summer of 2012 and we saw far fewer requests for wasp nest removal as a result.
