Found this 'old'thread!
We have a queen that is looking for somewhere to nest in our garage I think..saw her twice on Sunday and last night the husband came running back up to the house wanting help !!!
She was in the garage buzzing around so I went down opened the big doors and all went quiet....for 10 mins....then just as he thought it was safe she suddenly started buzzing round again,managed to get her out but are now on 'wasp watch'!
We had 2 nests when we moved here last August...it was hell...so will keep trying to move her on...just wondered how long roughly from finding a place does the nest start getting built?are we talking days or a week??
