Do Dogwood Trees Attract Wasps

Question From: s. lay - MARYLAND
Q: I have a kousa dogwood tree and someone told me that a certain kind of wasp lays its eggs inside the red berries. Is there any truth to this--and if so could you give me more information on whether there is an attraction for wasps to these berries and or the tree?


Flowering dogwoods do not attract wasps Sherry. They are very popular with homeowners and such an attraction would make them very unpopular. Happy Yardening, Nancy
