It isn't just towers either. I had a problem with my Dish from Dishnetwork 4 weeks ago. The guy who came out came prepared with bee-spray. Since I'd noticed them up there before, I asked about it. He said the dish had about 300 wasps that he killed by the time he was done with it, and he'd already been stung 3 times before he got to my house that day. He said it's like an epidemic...just about everywhere he goes (upstate NY), the antennas are stuffed with bees of some sort.

I've seen that here too.  No idea what the cause is.

In situations like that we just get up really early in the morn and work before it warms up.

I HATE those danged things. Never had them around here till the last several years. I'd never even seen one as a kid.

Does anyone know what causes the swarming behavior in wasps around towers. I dont mean a few of them hanging out having a smoke and sharpening their stingers. I mean the big swarms of hundreds. We were at 4 different locations yesterday. All of them were unclimbable due to swarms of wasps. No nests on the structures either.

Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now.
