This year seems to have been the year for wasps here in our garden.
So far, P has found about half a dozen nests in various places including the bird nest boxes and around the house itself.
Yesterday evening he discovered a huge nest under the eaves, just outside our bedroom window. Using a very long piece of tree branch that had been brought down by the last storm, he managed to dislodge part of it which fell down onto the patio slabs.
It broke apart and the larvae fell out and were scattered around so he left them for the birds to find as he thought it would be ideal food for the babies.
As he sat outside in the evening sun, he noticed that a colony of ants had discovered the larvae and were dragging them all off to their nest somewhere.
I am certainly not a fan of wasps or of ants but it is interesting to see the way that nature works when humans interfere.
