  • How to Make a Wasp Trap from an Old Plastic Jug.

    That is crazy. You said "won't they just respond to the population loss with increased fecundity?" I am wondering: asking questions like you've read a chapter in elementary school level evolution, why are you debating ecology online? The hornets don't have a way, like humans, of perceiving population loss in their species; for that they would need scientists: statisticians measuring population groups carefully. Nor do wasps possess anywhere close to the cognitive function, i.e. intelligence or background to read a man-made map.I am aghast at the lack of awareness you posit, honestly. As for nipping nests in the bud, I am reading this article because I moved into a condo with a huge nest above my window. So, knocking it down early was no option for me. Thanks, anyway...T...see more »That is crazy. You said "won't they just respond to the population loss with increased fecundity?"

Thanks, anyway...Two hornets infiltrated my living room yesterday, because they are carnivorous and territorial by nature. They didn't sting me because I was fortunate enough to take note of them- and proceeded to later kill them. However, I am not always so cautious to the dozens that live outside my front door and swarm me. I am very grateful for this option of whittling their numbers, before removing the nest. Not to mention I have never been stung, I do not know if I will have a life threatening reaction or not!
