The first sign of a pending wasps nest is the queen wasp’s nest, the size of a golf ball, in a loft, shed or other quiet position, somewhere in Moordown, Bournemouth, where she has spent the winter months.           Cells are built into the nest a few at a time to begin with in Parkstone, Poole until the first batch of eggs pupate into workers.         As more worker wasps arrive the nest is enlarged in Christchurch and full scale production can commence!         Depending on the weather and temperatures, the nest can grow...
