Early Wasp Sightings

I was just over at a friend’s house, and was checking out the progress on a construction project. All of a sudden, I saw some movement on a window sill. Sure enough, there were three paper wasps. These were workers, not queens. Which means they had to have hatched somewhat recently. After some poking around, we found the nest, and I removed it. It just goes to show that wasp season can start pretty early.

UPDATE: This was back in March. The weather since then has been unseasonably cold and wet, which held back the usual increase of the wasp and yellow jacket population noticeably.
