I had a go at the wild pollinator count this year. i just realised i should have posted a notice for everybody else before it happened. Sorry everyone! it was quite a hectic 10 minutes of counting. I worked on a 2 metre square area on the side of a flowering tree and managed to see 405 pollinators and 26 species in less than ideal conditions, including 2 species i have never seen before. the only drawback of doing it is that I have developed a habit of pausing and looking at flowering plants to see what is there.
Hi Recently I was trying to eat a meal outside and was driven inside by a group of wasps that decided to join the party. Knowing that they bite if provoked I decided to move and eat inside the house. This prompted me to make a wasp trap out of a lemonade bottle and placed a mixture of beer and jam in the bottle as bait, for two days it did nothing, first I thought I has wasted my beer, then over the next day it killed 22 wasps and not one bee. This morning outside there were a few wasps flying around checking out the under side of leaves in my garden plants it seems they were looking for aphids or caterpillars. Perhaps I should have left them alone. Cheers Joey
