Due to the cold winter the wasp season has started around six weeks early this year, add on the summer heatwave and the wasps have thrived, resulting in huge wasps nests!
The anatomy of a wasp restricts what it can digest, so any food they catch such as flies and insects are chewed up and fed to the larvae, who in turn produce a sugary spit that the wasps can eat. As the queen has already stopped laying eggs this year there are no larvae left for the adult wasps to feed. This has lead to wasps going out and feeding on any sweet things they can find.
Rotten fruit, fizzy and alcoholic drinks have been the wasp’s favorite snacks this summer, but this has had a somewhat adverse effect on the wasps! They are getting drunk! And the drunk wasps are behaving badly, going on stinging rampages attacking everything in sight. Sober wasps are not the most pleasant of insects the best of times, but a drunk wasp is something you definitely want to avoid!
