I'm a month ahead on numbers of wasps nests compared to last year. Just done a really busy one that must of been a month ahead in its own right.

Also done some tiny ones aswell. Iv broken them open and released the Queen....I wonder if these tiny ones are second attempts and if they will make a third after iv evicted them

Really slow start, only done 5 wasp nests so far. 

 

Until the nice weather arrives (hopefully) and folk are out in their gardens, then it will be slow.

 

No ants at all so far this year, whats going on?

Hardly any wasps about round here due to the cold, wet spring that has gone on for ever. Loads of ant hills in gardens though and loads of rats aboutin chicken coops and outbuildings. I'm doing double on the mole job compared to last year and the next hatch of young will be with us any day now. The ground is still wet so I expect them to be ranging out in the open garden areas whereas in a normal year they would stay out of the way until October.

 

Strange year for sure.

Rubbish around South derbys. Only done 6 so far, shold be doing at least that a day now. Got about 7-8 calls a day for bees, they seem to be doing really well.

Also plenty of rat jobs due to wet weather.
