Hi, I’ve noticed a few European wasps hanging around the hive. They seem to be attempting to pick off the bees on the ground or around the hive.
They don’t appear to be entering the hive but I’ve seen a few bee-wasp fights… usually the wasp wins.
Previous threads talk with very mixed opinions about wasp traps etc.
I guess I’m wondering if with a few wasps should I even be concerned? By a few I mean there would often be two or three hanging around.
They also seem to have found the water source.
Location is Melbourne.
