BAD YEAR FOR WASPS

Posted by Rosemoor Garden on 10 Sep 2009 at 11:26 AM

For the last two or three years we have had very little trouble from wasps but this year we have been plagued by them especially on the fruit. 

Great care is needed when picking or collecting drops in the morning not to get stung especially as the hornets are about as well.

We have a good crop of figs this year but most of them are being eaten before they are fully ripe on the bush.

We have 2 glass dome wasp catchers in a tree next to our patio which I have emptied and refilled with sugar water more often this year than ever before. They are certainly effective for a small garden but I am not sure of their value for a large fruit area.

In actual fact it was a good year for wasps. Given the few I have seen over recent years I didn't mind seeing a few more this year.
