We’ve noticed wasps attempting to build nests up against the outside housing of the allsky1 camera system. We’ve taken them down twice and just noticed more wasps congregating yet again. This time it was serious. They had infiltrated the housing and set up house. a very large honeycomb had already been built, in a very short time period.
After spraying to get rid of the stinging ones, we opened the housing and removed the nest, along with a bunch of the wasps as well.
After that it was repairing the screen, gluing it in, adding in more blocks to fill in the tiny holes that had existed before in the housing, adding a new white aircore shield to the top of the camera, and put the whole thing back together again.
Let’s see them try that again!
