Wasp Season:Spring / Summer
Identifying WaspsUnlike bees, wasps have a painful sting, which can be used repeatedly. A wasp is 10-15mm long and can be easily identified by its black-and-yellow striped body and distinctive buzzing sound it creates when flying.
At 20mm long the queen wasp is slightly larger. During the winter months she hibernates, and come spring will build a nest in which to lay her eggs. Approximately one month after laying her eggs, the tiny grubs develop into female worker wasps. These wasps will fly upto 1 mile in search of food. A single nest can produce upto 30,000 wasps in a year.
Wasps can be mostly seen in the months of August and September as they seek out sweet foods and liquids, making them a particular nuisance for picnic goers. If you do get stung by a wasp, the swelling can be reduced with antihistamines.
Wasp Nest RemovalIf you find a wasps nest in a wall or bank, apply one of the range of domestic products available labelled for wasp nest control. Nests in roofs or sheds need to be thoroughly sprayed with insecticide. This can be hazardous and is best performed by professional technicians. Some BPCA pest control contractors will do this, as will local authority environmental health departments.
Commercial premises can be protected by insect screening of windows and the installation of electrical devices which attract, kill and catch the bodies.
