    Hi from Alison in Nelson. After seeing paper wasp nests close to a warm wall I decided to provide some enticing wee nests to see if they would use them, making it easy for me to find and kill them. I got this idea when I saw how they liked to nest in green plastic plant sleeves. I had also found them in cut off plastic drink bottles that I keep in a stack as they have many uses in the vege garden.
    The photos show what I created, unfortunately they have not been used! Does any one else have any ideas?
    Also there was mention of wasp control as part of an event in Auckland,I think, recently can anyone tell me what was being suggested.
    Thank you.
