Identifying a Wasps Nest
If you are frequently experiencing the unwanted presents of wasps in and around your property. It is highly likely there is a wasps nest nearby.
To look for a wasps nest on your property or garden, you can carefully follow the flight path of the wasps, and they will indicate the area of the nest.
Nests on the property are typically in wall cavities, in the attic or roof spaces, or under the eaves. These are sheltered places where the wasps can also easily gain access back outside.
Within your garden, common hide-away's for wasps nests are bird boxes, sheds or garages.
What do Wasps Nests look like?
The outer part of the nest has a papery look- this is because the wasps make their nests from chewed pulp wood & saliva.
It is a dull mix of yellow/brown in colour, with distinctive swirling patterns.
The wasp nest starts of quite small, around the size of a golf ball, during the Spring time.
As we move into Summer and wasp numbers increase, naturally, so does the size of the nest.
The picture to the right, is a wasp nest which was removed mid-summer.
Wasps nests can increase to the size of a football, sometimes larger.
For this reason, it is best to have the nest treated/ removed as soon as possible. In addition, as the number of wasps increase and the nest grows larger, the wasps also become more aggressive.
