BADGERS DIG OUT BUMBLE BEES AND EAT WASPS

Britains Horse chestnut trees are under threat.  The ‘leaf minor’ caterpillar is attacking them.

The leaf minor caterpillar’s numbers are controlled naturally by wasps  – who eat them.

Wasps nests are being eaten by badgers.

So, indirectly badgers are destroying our lovely chestnut trees.

Badgers also dig out bumble bees.

Is this a case of protecting one species, which then spreads and reproduces so much that it destroys other species and plants?

Do the conservationists know these facts?
