If wasps feel threatened, there is a high risk they will swarm and sting you, your children, pets, horses etc.

Wasps can be very annoying especially in and around food or drink in the summer time. Wasps start to construct their nest from late April in any crack or crevice as long as there’s a void behind it. Favourite wasp nest areas include the eaves of your house, the loft space, a shed or garage,  in a garden wall, tree or bush.

At the start of the wasp season there are only queen wasps. The queen was mated the year before and makes her nest which is the size of a ping-pong ball, hung from a ceiling.  There, she lays her first clutch of eggs. Hungry from her winter hibernation, she feeds from early pollen and nectar if she’s timed it right, with no heavy rain or frosts. The eggs hatch and new worker wasps (sterile females) do the job ofbuilding up the nest. The queen lays more eggs throughout the wasp nest season. Wasps will continue to build their nest throughout the summer months and they can reach to several thousand in a single nest. Wasp nests can continue even up to December (although it’s unusual).

Still unsure if you have wasps or bees?

Wasps are very protective and will do their utmost to protect the queen and the nest, unlike bees, wasps will often sting for no reason.
