A mild winter and wet summer are being blamed in part, but the garbage strike has also provided an abundance of food for these creatures.
From Not Far From The Tree’s firsthand perspective, it is easily apparent that wasps do indeed have a great deal to survive and thrive on. Unpicked fruit trees leave a delicious feast underneath their canopies, perfect for wasps to enjoy and set up homes nearby.
Before thinking to remove a wasp nest, however, take a moment to learn why these are beneficial insects. And to avoid the risk of stings when you’re picking your fruit tree, simply hang up a fake nest to temporarily deter wasps from coming nearby, as Not Far From The Tree has started doing this year.
