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...

The first sign of a pending wasps nest is the queen wasp’s nest, the size of a golf ball, in a loft, shed or other quiet position, somewhere in Moordown, Bournemouth, where she has spent the winter months.           Cells are built into the nest a few at a time to begin with in Parkstone, Poole until the first batch of eggs pupate into workers.         As more worker wasps arrive the nest is enlarged in Christchurch and full scale production can commence!         Depending on the weather and temperatures, the nest can grow...

Wasps are now really active in all the local areas of Dorset including Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch, Verwood and Ringwood in Hampshire. Wasp nests are being found in properties in roof voids, in gardens, in bushes, trees, outbuildings and even in the ground from West Moors to Sandbanks, Wimborne to Highcliffe and Branksome to Ferndown. Wasps are very good at adapting the local environment to suit their needs and this is especially true when foliage is removed to allow easier flight paths to an established wasps nest. They can also excavate soil at an alarming rate to increase underground...

It is that time of the year again for the wasps to suddenly appear on the scene and cause fear and possible panic.

A wasp sting is certainly painful and in some cases, can be fatal, as the wasp is capable of multiple stings. The wasp sting can produce swelling, which in turn can cause respiratory obstruction, or even worse, anaphylactic shock. The wasp nest is constructed by a queen wasp and can be found just about anywhere, from in the ground, in bushes or...

Wasps!

Now is the time to be alert for wasps, not only outdoors, around the garden or home, but indoors as well. Wasps can build a nest very quickly and often unnoticed until a sudden encounter can lead to a nasty shock. The main ingredient needed for a wasps nest is wood. This can be plundered from almost any source, treated or not, garden furniture, fences, decking and sheds being a few of the vulnerable targets. Once the source is located, a steady stream of wasp workers, will ferry the material to a nearby location that the Queen wasp has selected previously, and a nest is born! As the contents...
