I made some wasp nests (crocheted), three for my sister and one for my sister-in-law. My sister asked for the three and mum thought I could make one for my brother’s house too.
Wasp nests are supposed to scare off wasps, thouse nasty insects that sting. Last summer there were lots of them. The idea is to put them where nests have been found and when the wasps come, they should see these and think, ”Oh, that space is occupied, let’s go somewhere else!”
I am sceptical, but we’ll see if it works. I struggled making the wasps (four per nest) and they look kind of ugly, to be honest, but seen from a distance they can look like wasps, without wings.
I made two on Sunday evening, almost two yesterday. Today I finished the fourth and made all the wasps. They are filled with shredded newspaper. It was just something I read on the internet.
Going to my brother’s house today (it was his birthday yesterday). I’m bringing with me one wasp nest and the octopus that was washed this morning. It’s not dry yet, but just a little moist.
