insect architecture

wasp nestHere’s a pic of some natural architecture, which has unfortunately had to be removed from around the lodges. In general we’d leave wasp nests be (yes, that’s what it is), but we know from experience that come autumn when the wasps start to die off in large numbers we get a problem with dozy insects buzzing people. So when we find a nest, we deal with it. If it’s small enough, like this one, the simplest way is to knock it into a jam jar and pop it in the freezer. Winter comes early!

It’s beautiful though.
