We have had a wasp nest in the bottom field for the past couple of months. It is a hole a couple of inches across in the grass. I suspect that they used a old rabbit hole that was in the bank.
About a week ago, it looked as if something had tried to dig it out. A couple of days later, the wasp nest was completely decimated. This looks like the work of a badger. Apparently, they dig into the wasp nest and eat the larvae. There are still some wasps loitering around the nest, but I suspect that they will disappear in the next few weeks as the weather turns colder.
There used to be just a small 2 inch wide hole where the wasps when in and out. Then one morning this massive hole appeared. Apparently, it is the work of badgers who dig out the nest to eat the larvae.
There are still plenty of wasps in here, so I don’t want to get too close. The cold weather will kill them off in the next few weeks.
