A wasp can fly faster than a running human! If you try and swat a wasp, it will emit a pheromone which will attract other wasps. Only female wasps can sting and it is used as a way of defence. They can sting multiple times, unlike a bee that can only sting once. The two main species of wasp in the UK are Vespula vulgaris and Vespula germanica. The Queen wasps come out of hibernation, usually in early April to commence nest building. When the first batch of eggs hatch out and pupate into wasps, these will then support the Queen by bringing back food and continuing the nest building, allowing...

Wasps are not considered as a public health risk, but if a wasps nest is found in or around your property or garden, then I am sure you will disagree! If a nest is disturbed in any way, either by human or animal interference, then wasps will sting and will protect their nest vigorously, attacking anything within a suitable distance. The effects of a wasps’ sting can vary from person to person, ranging from being painful, to being very serious, especially if the person stung suffers an attack of Anaphylaxis, this is a severe and potentially life-threatening reaction to a trigger such as an...

One important one that you may never think of at the time, should be pest control and in particular – pest proofing!

The heatwave has certainly triggered a flurry of activity, not least concerning wasps. The calls for bee swarms are still happening, but general wasp activity has really accelerated, with many properties reporting unwanted invasions from wasps.

A wasps nest can be found wherever the conditions are suitable for the queen wasp to set up home and build the initial nest. If a ground location is chosen, then once the nest goes into full production, a lot of soil excavation will take place to keep track of the...
