Wasp nests can be dangerous to handle. Rely on professional treatments to keep safe from stings
Wasps can also be confused with bees, in particular Honey Bees - however these vary in colour from golden brown to almost black and are furrier than wasps. If you suspect you have Honey Bees, find a bee keeper local to you, they maybe able to rescue the swarm.
Only female wasps have a sting which they can use repeatedly, if they feel under threat. In most cases a wasp sting causes no long term harm, but it can be life threatening if you are allergic to stings. Treating a wasp nest is often the most efficient way to control a wasp problem and reduce the threat of stings.
Wasps can build nests outdoors under eaves or, if they can gain access, they can find sheltered areas inside your home, such as wall cavities, roof spaces and attics. If a nest is discovered in early spring, DIY removal may be possible but the danger from stings will remain.
Wasps have the potential to attack in large numbers if their nest is disturbed. It is best to treat a nest earlier in the year before numbers increase and the wasps become more aggressive, increasing the threat of stings during treatment.
