In the UK, there are 2 main species of wasp; the German Wasp (vespula germanica) and the Common Wasp (vespula vulgaris). German Wasps will usually build their nests in bushes or on the ground, however, the Common Wasp is more likely to build their nest in buildings but can still be found on the ground or in bushes. We have also seen an increase in the Median Wasp (vespula dolichol) in recent years, which poses a problem as these wasps tend to build their nests at head height which can be a risk.

How to Spot a Wasp Nest

Wasps will often build their nests in and around your home, often in a loft space or the garden shed is another popular spot, but a safe crack, crevice or hole will usually be ideal. They are attracted to a variety of different foods but have a sweet tooth.

If you find you have an abundance of wasps in your garden in your garden or home, it is important to observe them in order to see where they are nesting. You may see many wasps entering and leaving a hole or if there are large amounts of wasps around – check with your neighbours too, swarms can often come from nearby.

If you do not solve your wasp nest problem before the end of the summer, the wasps will go away at the arrival of the cold weather but will come back with vengeance the next year. At the end of each season, the nest dies off, however, the queen produces 8-20 new queens to build nests nearby.

Secondly, despite a wasp nest starting life about the shape of a small ball, over time, the nest can grow to the size of a large exercise ball and have been known to grow bigger than a human. Once this happens, serious structural damage can become a problem as the nest can push through wood and plasterboard. Joists and loft materials can be damaged and in some serious cases, ceilings can collapse.

Once Coquet Pest Control has removed the wasp next, you may see some residual wasps returning from foraging etc for the next few days. This number should start to dwindle quite rapidly.
