Don’t you just love them? No! Neither do we. Wasps and Hornets pose a threat to Honey Bees so they aren’t welcomed in the apiary by the beekeeper.
If you have a problem with wasps or hornets then you need to contact a competent pest control contractor. Our recommendation is Paul Bryant of A Bee Pest Control. Paul, a member of our society, works with other beekeepers to rehome honey bees, but he i more than happy to help you with an infestation of wasps.

If you find that they are a regular problem then you could try a Wasp Bane, trusted by beekeepers to get rid of wasps in the apiary without harming the bees.
