Hi Abby and Dancingqueen....Welcome to the Corfu forum..

It is always difficult to predict, but the wasps are usually drawn to the ripening fruits in late August and September time. You will see them around, just like any other European country, but they are more docile than the ones we get in the UK.

As long as you don't flap your arms around like windmills at them, then they are more likely to ignore you!

Have a lovely holiday on this beautiful island of Corfu

I hate wasps too. I seem to attract anything stinging-mossies too.

I used boots soltan suncream with insect repellant in, fingers crossed wasps have left me alone.

At night it's every concoction avail to deter the mozzies!
