Q&A – Are the wasps on my corn beneficial?


I’ve seen wasp on my corn more than usual this year, are they harmful or
beneficial? And does the dry spell this year have anything to do with their presence? And this is from Mister Mike in
Ringgold, Georgia. So thanks for watching, Mister Mike, Ringgold, Georgia, and obviously they had a dry spell. We didn’t
have too much of a dry spell this May. – We’ve not had a dry spell, but wasps are
beneficial. I would say they would be a beneficial. They would attack a lot of caterpillars and things like that.
I don’t know whether the dry spell has any effect on the number of wasps that are there. It might just indicate there’s
something for them to predate upon. They’re predators and so take care of those wasps. Don’t get up too close and
personal with them. They may take it wrong. – Yeah, that’s right. Don’t start swatting
or things like that. – Yeah, don’t start swatting the wasp or anything
like that, but I certainly would be good to have, wasps are beneficial about any crop. – I think they’re only there to help. They’re
beneficial.
