My bay tree suckers bring the wasps to the yard!

Nature never ceases to fascinate me. 

I noticed my bay was attracting wasps over the last couple of days. 

Upon closer inspection I noticed the infamous curled leaves of the bay sucker and it was these that were attracting the wasps. 

I’m guessing there’s some kind of treat in it for them and it tastes nice. 

Anyone else seen this before?

    No but I wouldn't mind some!
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    I felt a bit mean pulling the leaves off. I never thought I’d feel that way about wasps. 

    I’ll catch some and post them to ya @B3

    I'm a great defender of 'the wasp' as they get such a bad press most of the time. 
    Fascinating, and vital, little creatures  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    They can keep coming back for me.  It's not really my garden after all.  If they're in the house then they're getting moved on but out there they can do what they want.
