Do badgers eat wasps?

Today's burning question from White Moss House, Grasmere is.... what eats wasps?

In the garden we have a wasps nest, which was actually built in a hole dug by a mouse. We've been trying to get rid of it for days, in a gentle sort of way, but the odd wasp keeps appearing.

This morning, we find that an area about 18 inches in diameter and about 18 inches deep has been excavated, and we can now see the bottom of the waps nest with about 10 wasps left. It has what looks like paper round the egdes- quite clever really.

It looks like a badger hole, but there are no droppings- who knows?

Hopefully the puffer will finish them off this time.
