Wasps & Problem Wasp Nests

The common wasp lives in colonies which grow throughout the summer months and can cause serious alarm when present in greater numbers or when colonies are nearby humans. Many thousands of wasps can serve a single queen and commonly their nests are concealed in hard-to-reach areas, sometimes underground or in cavities in properties or loft spaces. Wasps respond aggressively to being disturbed and can attack in swarms in this situation and are most likely to inflict a painful sting, which can be life-threatening to those with allergies. Without a doubt a sting in the throat can be fatal. Under no circumstances should any person but a qualified pest controller try removal of a wasp nest.


This is rarely an issue with wasps, which have a black and yellow abdomen pattern, black head and thorax, six legs and heavily-veined wings. An adult wasp is much the same in size to a worker honey bee at 12-15mm in length. Queens are larger, at around 20mm.

What Is The Difference Between Wasps And Hornets?

Hornets are larger than wasps at 20-30mm. Wasps are black and yellow with little hair, whereas hornets are more normally chestnut brown and yellow with some hair. Wasps are likely to feast on food waste and sweet substances and some insects, and can swarm when provoked. Hornets mainly feed on insects and do not swarm. Wasps are quick to sting and can sting repeatedly, and are commonplace in late summer. Hornets usually sting only when provoked and are seen between May and September.

Wasp Nest Treatment and Removal

Never tackle a wasps’ nest by yourself. Wasp nest removal must only ever be dealt with by an experienced and qualified pest controller who has the right protective clothing and the correct professional strength extermination products. One visit is normally enough to exterminate a wasp nest colony.
