The first wasp was on the window sill about 10 days ago.
A second was spotted on the floor. Both were dead. I disposed of them but a couple of hours later found another couple.
Every day since then we’ve spotted up to a dozen dead or dying wasps in the house.
If you have to have wasps, that’s the way to have them but I’d prefer not to have any at all. They may have an important role in nature’s story but if so, it’s as villains and I have no compunction over dealing with them as such.
But killing those we see is dealing with only part of the problem. To rid ourselves of the pests we have to destroy the nest and we haven’t been able to find it.
I’m hoping the poor state of health of the wasps we’ve seen indicates someone else has and has poisoned it but the the climbing wasp count suggests that hasn’t yet been wholly effective.
