I encountered another queen wasp in a roof and unfortunately she was still 3 dimensional after I took a swipe at her, though she did crash land and disappear in long grass. I also found a huge wax moth larvae in one hive which was evicted. Another hive had a cluster of dead bees on one side of the hive but a thriving queen and colony on the other side. Another pleasing sight were the swans nesting again. So it’s full steam ahead!
