It is that time of year again.
Wasps always make a bee-line (sorry) for our house when it is time to look for nest sites.
We try to look out for them before the nests become too well established and full of the creatures, particularly if they are too close to us. Sometimes we don't notice them until it is too late.
Last year P was going around all the bird nest boxes in the garden to clean them out once nesting season had finished. As he opened up the box attached to the shed, a horde of angry wasps came rushing out. I don't think I have ever seen him move so fast.
Today, I was sitting out under the parasol enjoying my lunch in the sun when I noticed a couple of very large wasps investigating the small porch over the French doors. They seemed to be very persistent so P whipped out the can of insect spray and persuaded them to go away.
We shall need to keep an eye out for them to see where they try next.
