Swarms of big black flies when out on bike has anyone else seen them.

Also wasps nibbling my wooden garden furniture.



The wasps are taking the chewed up wood to build their byke with.

Thanks MG I have just researched to and found out as this is 1st time seen them doing it in my garden so hope the nest is not too close by.

Went 5 miles up the cycle track yesterday. Certainly more flies etc than usual but fortunately not big black ones. Had several mouthfulls though - ugh.

They are not usually a problem for us and they regularly chew wood from out garden furniture
