Is it a wasp nest in my loft?



  • Since I live in a fairly rural area, most nests built in the open don't survive after the first frost, because the raccoons wait for that moment and tear open a nest to eat any larva or grubs inside it.  This past summer we had terrible issues with hornets and yellow jackets (ground nesting hornets), I think maybe due to the drought.  A few years ago I spotted this nest, constructed on an electrical wire along a roadway.

  • @Nollie Asian Hornets need to be reported in the UK.

    @Nollie isn't in the UK though @Simone_in_Wiltshire ;)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • I know @Fairygirl but I wonder if @Nollie is aware of the same in Spain.
