Wasps increasing

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:23 pm on 5 May 2014

If you've spent any time outdoors over the past few weeks or even months, you will have probably noticed a growing 'buzz' as more and more wasps infiltrate our parks, gardens and bush walks. Not only do wasps pose a danger to humans, they also have a major impact on our native insect and bird life as well and on our economic wellbeing. And while winter inevitably means a reduction in wasp populations, autumn is actually when they are at their peak.
