Question: I know wasps are deadly to bee hives and we have tons of them around…

Here is a reader question.
Hey Marty-- Mike Ray here! Hope you still look at your site! Adam is talking about bee keeping, so I started looking for you and finally found this place. I downloaded your PDF and printed it out. He and his family are coming over for breakfast, and will show your PDF to them.
One question I have: I know wasps are deadly to bee hives and we have tons of them around-- anything that might help keep them away from a hive? Contact me and i will give you a call-- would love to touch base with you.
Blessings, Mike
Mike, I forwarded your comment intact to Marty and hope he gets back to you soon.

This is high season for wasps and also the time when honeybee colonies are bearing the highest mite load. The driest June in 125 years followed by a very dry July adds another stress. If I had active hives, I'd have robbing screens at the ready.
