How big are Wasp Nests in May?
Not very big is the answer! The picture here shows the actual size of the wasp nest in my shed on 31st May. It’s the same wasp nest shown in the previous photo with the hook on it. It’s still tiny and certainly there no wasps inside it yet – not even any eggs. There’s still a while to go yet.
Queen wasps do emerge earlier in the year and this does confuse some people into thinking they have an early wasp nest.
Wasps are not really active until July. Bees start first.
