Is it just our area or is there a trend.
Every year we put out a jar with jam in and any over the top fruit at the bottom of the garden. This stops wasps becoming a pest in the house and enables us to watch their comings and goings.
This year the jam was virtually untouched and the fruit not visited which is very unusual. The number of wasps noted in the garden could almost be counted on one hand.
I would be interested to know if this is a local problem or is more general.
