Are Wasps Beneficial for Fruit Trees?

My plumbs are growing nicely. But…


This wasp nest presents a dilemma…

With the general lack of bees, I’m always trying to support whatever bee/wasp colonies I can. While wasps aren’t the handy dandy pollinators that bees are, they do some pollinating. AND they eat lots of other pesky insects.

So, even though they are more aggressive in general than bees, I usually take a “live and let live policy.” BUT– the problem is that they also feed on fruit.

So this wasp nest has to go.
