A late colony of Vespula germanica (Fab.) (Hym., Vespidae) at Pilham, Nr. Gainsborough, Lincolnshire



A late colony of Vespula germanica (Fab.) (Hym., Vespidae) at Pilham, Nr. Gainsborough, Lincolnshire



Entomologist' s Monthly Magazine 118: 71-73



In late autumn and winter 1979-1980, numerous wasps (V. germanica) from a single subterranean colony interfered with hive management, prevented honeybees from foraging efficiently, and robbed small colonies. Feeding syrup to the bees attracted wasps, which were able to enter hives unmolested at temperatures below 10 deg C when the bees clustered and left entrances unguarded.
