I was in Olu last August and saw the odd wasp at breakfast time. Never saw any in the evening time or during the day around the pool/beach. Other people may have a different experience but mine is that wasps are more of a problem during UK summers (when we have a decent one)compared to what I encountered in Olu last year.

Its rather amazing the amount of posts about wasps every year.

Of course there are wasps in Olu Deniz/Ovacik/Fethiye/Hisaronu.

But they are no worse than in the UK countryside.

Please folks don't spoil your holiday by worrying about wasps.

If you have a real phobia about them, then you will already know what type of repellants to use.

If you only dislike Wasps,

Stay away from places near greenery

Get someone to smoke whilst you are eating (OK a bit OTT)

Keep an eye out for places that are troubled by them, and stay clear of them.

You are far more likely to be stung by an agent called Bloody Gorgeous. He even had a black and yellow striped jumper on one year.

If there was a problem with them last year it was just one of those things. I was there the first two weeks of July and I can't even remember seeing a single one. I did, however, get very irritated with them on my gulet holiday in September. I had not had a particular problem with them to my memory on any of my previous holidays either on gulets or in resorts of Ovacik or Dalyan.

If they were prevalent at any time last season it was just one of those things - please don't think of the area as being filled with wasps all summer long because that is not the case. Just as there might be x weeks or a summer where we see a lot of them in the UK but then other years hardly any it's exactly the same in Turkey.

I was there the middle 2 weeks of July last year and don`t recall seeing one at all. We didn`t get bitten by anything at all. I really don`t know where these reports come from..!
