Wasps & Problem Wasp Nests

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


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

What Is The Difference Between Wasps And Hornets?

Hornets are larger than wasps at 20-30cm. Wasps are black and yellow with little hair, whereas hornets are more usually 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 common in late summer. Hornets usually sting only when provoked and are seen between May and September.

Wasp Nest Removal
