WASP FACTS

  • COMMON SPECIES

    The most common species of wasp found in Hertfordshire and the rest of the UK are the Common Wasp (Vespula Vulgaris) and the German Wasp (Vespula germanica)

  • DIET

    Adult wasps feed on nectar, but the larvae are fed on insects by adult wasps that use their sting to immobilise and capture their pray, such as aphids, caterpillars, flies etc. When their food source is low, adult wasps can go in search of more food, looking for items that contain sugar. This is why wasps often seem attracted to pub gardens or family BBQs where sugary soft drinks and alcohol are found.

  • HABITAT

    The queen wasp will find a place to build a nest, this is usually in the roof structure of a loft, shed or outbuilding as well as in a hole in the ground etc. These nests will vary in size, and whilst some nests will hold a lot more, the average nest will be home to between 3000 and 7000 wasps.

  • BEHAVIOUR

    Wasps can be very aggressive if they feel threatened or become angered. They deliver a painful sting which can cause swelling, this can be particularly dangerous when a sting is near the throat as it can lead to difficulty in breathing.

  • ACTIVITY

    The queen wasp comes out of hibernation in the spring and begins building the nest from scratch. The queen will start to strip wood off nearby sheds and fence panels and chew the wood fibres which combined with saliva will be used to build the nest. Once the queen has built the nest she will begin laying eggs and once they have hatched she will forage for food.

Wasps (Vespula Vulgaris)

Wasps (Vespula Vulgaris) are a common sight throughout the UK during the summer season, often creating their nests in peoples loft spaces, in trees and underground.

A wasp nest can be home to thousands of wasps so getting rid of them yourself is dangerous. It is best to leave it to a professional pest controller.

Wasps can be very aggressive if they feel threatened or become angered. They deliver a painful sting which can cause swelling, this can be particularly dangerous when a sting is near the throat as it can lead to difficulty in breathing. In some cases as well as causing pain, wasps can also cause some people to have allergic reactions which can be fatal.

Wasp nests are made from chewed wood fibres mixed with saliva which the queen wasp starts building before laying eggs usually starting in the spring season but depending on the climate conditions.

Wasps will aggressively defend their nests and unlike bees, which die after stinging, wasps can sting multiple times. This makes the wasp sting viable for personal defence when away from the colony.
