Wasps

The wasp is the most dangerous British stinging insect. Unlike the bee, which dies after stinging once, the wasp stings multiple times. To those who carry an allergy to wasps the consequences of a sting can be life threatening.

A wasp nest left untreated can grow to house upwards of 15,000 wasps so early treatment is always advised. If the next is left untreated, a queen wasp will produce up to 6 more queens, which will hibernate nearby and produce a nest each the following spring.

Wasps normally nest in eaves of houses or in attics, lofts, trees, hedges and even underground. If there are a large number of wasps coming in and out of any of these places, then you have a wasp problem!
