Further to yesterday’s post on the wasp plague: my farmer found the nest, or at least its entrance.
He noticed several wasps flying behind a shrub, behind which is a grate under the house.
He applied liberal amounts of carbaryl powder to the grate after dark last night. He then sealed most of it with masking tape which forces the wasps to crawl through the powder as they come and go.
They’re still coming and going and we’re waiting and hoping the poison they carry will take effect before the sting count rises from one.
