What do wasps look like?
Wasps are flying, stinging insects classified under the order Hymenoptera (membranous wings). 10-15 mm in length (wasp queens are larger, up to 20 mm), yellow and black striped. Wasps live in large colonies. One wasp nest may produce up to 30000 wasps a year.
Where do wasps live?
Wasps build their nests in or on various structures. It can be a loft, cavity wall, roof space, garden shed, air brick or in the ground. Wasp nests are made from chewed wood and saliva and are grey/beige colour. Often it is not possible to see the nest but wasps flying in and out through a gap somewhere in the building means there is live wasp nest inside.
Are wasps dangerous?
Wasps become aggressive and can attack when threatened. During a sting, poisonous venom is transmitted to human body. This is painful and cause redness, burning, itching and minor swelling. However people allergic to wasp and bee sting can experience serious immunological reaction (difficulty breathing, wheezing, vomiting, diarrhoea, fast heart rate, dizziness, difficulty swallowing, confusion, anxiety or agitation) known as anaphylactic shock. In this case or if in doubt call 999 as you should get medical treatment immediately.
