Wasps are one of the nastiest and most aggressive pests you might encounter, known for unprovoked stings and attacks. In the worst case scenario a threatened wasp may even attract other wasps to the area to help attack.
A wasp colony will involve a Queen wasp building a nest and laying up to 300 eggs a day for several weeks. The nests can usually be found in enclosed spaces like lofts, under floorboards, in wall cavities and in sheds and garages.
Unlike bees, wasps will not die after one sting and will attack repeatedly before they die if they feel their nest is under attack. These stings can cause some people to have an anaphylactic reaction which can have serious health implications.
Removing a wasp nest is dangerous and should only be attempted by professionals equipped with the right PPE equipment and knowledge of how wasps can be removed.
