Hello fellow WaspWatchers!

During 2009 the weather across most the north east was cool and very wet – but this did not prevent some impressive achievements:

The following States found large number of NEW Cerceris fumipennis colonies during the summer of 2009: Maine 22, Wisconsin 26, New Hampshire 13, New York 18, North Carolina 15, Vermont 19, Connecticut 70, and Rhode Island 20. Rhode Island also developed a “3rd base theory”: few players get to round third base so at the ball-diamond colonies wasps nesting around are less disturbed and as such the nests are frequent there?

Please see the 2009 Cerceris fumipennis Report (PDF 10.8MB) for further details about the 2009 season.
