Wasps often behave erratically, cause menace and panic to nearby people. Wasps more often than not are aggressive and will sting humans if the wasp itself or the wasp nest feels threatened. At times when drinking sugary pop or consuming something sweet in the summer months you will notice wasps become more present as they're trying to acquire this for themselves. People view wasps as an insect that will attack for any given reason, however the truth is that they are defensive minded, they have learnt this through defending their nest so they perform attack as part of defence. Similarly if one becomes too close to the wasps nest they will defend by means of attack. This is very basic psychology of how wasps think. We simply advise to minimise risk to yourself and others, if you have a wasp nest, have a professional pest control team take care of it for you!
While trying to identify what type of wasp you have you should keep this in mind: there are 3 different wasps to be aware of, the queen, the male, and the worker. The queen wasp is the largest of the 3 types and is the only type of wasp you will see during the spring months. Majority of wasp sightings are during the summer months when the nest is most active, so usually at this point you are looking at male and worker wasps.
Most wasps found on flowers in and around August time will more often than not be male wasps. The male is slighly calmer than the other 2 wasp types and doesnt attack as frequent either. You can easily identify the male wasp due to it having 7 sections on its abdomen, whereas worker wasps only have 6 sections.
Wasp Nest Identification
Wasp nests are built the same way, although they can look different depending on what species of wasp has built them. If you begin to notice an increased amount of wasps in the nearby area then it is very likely you have a wasps nest, or there could be a food source close then worker wasps could be there taking the food source back to the nest. Keep in mind, the waps is an excellent communicator and once it has found a good food source it will return to the nest with this information, only for a swarm to start working at the same location, hence increased activity in wasps. If you observe nearby wasps even for a short amount of time, you will often see where they are nesting by the route they will be flying, this can help to identify wether you will need wasp nest treatment. A large wasp nest will have a lot of wasps going to and from as they work extremely hard, especially in the lighter hours, so they will be very visible and most likely causing nuiscance. Best places to check if you have a wasps nest is often in the roof, you will be able to see them around guttering, going into small holes in the brickwork. Also look out for places such as PVC fascias, airbricks, compost bins, wall cavities, sheds, under rubbish mounds in the garden and many other places. Wasps can and will nest indoors, when they find access into small holes at roof level they will often find their way into your loft, they can build substantial sized nests here as the nest remains undetected for a long period of time.
Wasp Nest Treatment
starting in the early summer month up until around the end of October there is a significant amount of activity in wasps, its at this point many people are stung by the wasp due to them having nested close to humans and property much of the time. A wasp will always defend its nest and will treat humans as a danger to the nest, they will not wait for the human to attack, so the wasp will make its move first and sting any victim it sees fit. Wasps can be very dangerous, as they can cause anaphylactic shock to people that may be allergic to a wasp sting, this can prove fatal. Something to keep in mind is that although bees can sting once, the wasp can sting several times.
Once a wasp nest has been treated by a professional pest control team you may still see small amounts of activity due to worker wasps returning after a few days of working and collecting wood particles for the wasp nest, you should be assured that this activity will cease within around 3 days of the nest being treated. The returning worker wasp will enter the nest, only to be killed by the chemical sprayed into it by the pest control technician.
