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.


We have a Pedunculate Oak at the bottom of the garden. This year I have found a number of Oak Marble Galls, all of which have Inquiline holes.  The absence of wasps this last year (2017) has been particularly obvious in the area of North Norfolk.
