The main issue with having wasps invade, is that they can build their nest in a variety of places. This can be in your garden, in your loft or other areas of your property. When they have a nest nearby, and feel their nest is being threatened (for example if a person comes too close), they are likely to become aggressive or attack. One nest may contain more than 1,000 wasps. This makes it potentially very dangerous to leave a wasp nest unattended to.
Where do you find wasps?
Most wasp nests are built in trees or other areas where they can find shade and protection from rain. This is not true in all situations though. Some wasps will build nests under house eaves, on posts, and in other man-made locations. Wasps may also enter the property itself and create a nest in your home, for example inside the walls of your house.
Wasps are also likely to enter your home and become a nuisance indoors even if the nest is located in the garden. They will come in through open windows and doors. This may start out as a small problem in your home, but it can also lead to some real problem with wasps buzzing around food and people being stung.
Signs that you have a wasp problem
If you see any number of wasps flying inside your home, this should prompt you to start trying to locate a wasp nest inside your home. One wasp may have just got inside through an open window or may have followed you in, but it is rare to find more than a couple wasps in your home when you don’t have a more serious wasp problem.
A large number of wasps in your garden also means that there is likely a wasp nest somewhere on your property or nearby.
Another sign that you might have wasps is finding chewed wood around your home or property. Some wasp nests are built out of mud, dirt, or grass, but most UK wasps prefer to make their nests out of fibrous material like wood and paper.
The problems and dangers of a wasp infestation
Wasps are not the most friendly of pests. Once you anger them, they can be unrelenting, especially if you disturb their nest. They may attack you just for being too close to their nests.
The big difference between wasps and bees is that wasps do not lose their stinger on their first sting. They will continue to sting you several times. Like with bees though, wasp stings can lead to an allergic reaction in some people. The fact they don’t lose their stinger makes a wasp more dangerous. Wasp can inject more venom, which can lead to a severe allergic reaction. Some people are not aware they have an allergy to wasps until they are stung for the first time. Therefore, it is always wise to avoid a wasp sting if possible.
Even without an allergy, if you disturb wasps near their nest, you could receive stings from multiple wasps. This can be extremely dangerous, especially to pets and young children who won’t know to take appropriate precautions.
