There are 2 types of wasp in the UK you are likely to find: solitary, which are rarely a concern, and social. Social wasps cluster together and their nest population size is able to reach up to 10,000 wasps. These are the nests that you are likely experiencing problems with. Our team are experts at removing social wasp nests. Approaching a wasps nest without protective clothing can be extremely risky for your health, When they are leaving their nest to sting you, if you have been stung already, more will follow and will be very hard to stop.
All wasps are carnivores that kill and eat other insects, such as butterflies. Some of them will also eat ripe fruit.
They build nests for the queen wasp from wood scrapings, cardboard and paper which they mix with their saliva to form cellulose. They often choose sunny spots when building nests but they can be found in a variety of shaded places too, often 15 feet plus above the ground. They are most commonly found under eaves of houses, in attics, walls, roof spaces, trees, hedges and underground.
Care should always be taken around wasps and their nests as their venom contains a pheromone that causes other wasps to become more aggressive so it is not advisable to swat one near its nests or other wasps. For that reason alone, if you do come across a nest, it should be reported for removal immediately; especially if it is in a public place such as the home or commonly used public spaces.
Yes, for some people, as the venom in a wasp sting can cause anaphylactic shock which can be fatal. If you are allergic to wasp stings this will also cause further problems.
An ordinary sting however, can be treated with ammonia, alcohol or cold poultices followed by antihistamine ointment.
Medical help should always be sought immediately if you are stung in the mouth or neck or if you experience dizziness, nausea, unusual swelling or extreme pain following a sting though.
