The Summer of 2013 was a record for wasps in many parts of BC, but wasp numbers are expected to be even higher this year thanks to a hot and dry Spring. Global News covered the story on June 9, 2014 with Mike Londry from Westside Pest Control.
“Having that awesome season last year means that we’re probably going to have a really bad, or good, for the wasp season this year,” said Michael Londry from Westside Pest Control.
“During dry weather you’re just going to see the nest go from to a golf ball or a baseball over a day and then to a volleyball over a long weekend. So you’ll want to just be aware that when you’re barbecuing and hanging out with your glass of wine on the back deck that you might have some visitors.”
