The start of the season is definitely here. Early season insects have already been encountered. Lots of minor bees and the start of the bumblebees.
I’ve even had 2 calls for extremely early season wasps. The first was called in by a customer who stands at his back gate smoking and he could see the active queen coming and going from a hole in his roof. She will be feeding her first batch of young and increasing the nest size. A quick blast of dust removed it for the customer so it didn’t become a full sized nest.
Second was a customer who had an old nest in the roof space and didn’t want to remove it themself. After removing the old nest I had a quick look round and found a new nest with queen sitting next to it. It will have turned in to a large active next by the Summer. Good to get it done now.
The photo shows the small start of the season nest with a queen wasp sitting next to it.
