Control

A professional use dust is best used in this instance, preferably from a distance as the dust aggravates them. The problem area must be excluded by all persons and pets until all wasp activity has ceased.

Habitat

The Wasp can form nests in loft spaces, wall cavities, trees, hedges and in the ground. The nest is formed by the Wasp chewing wood creating a paper like material, which can become extremely large. Colonies survive one season in Britain with a new nest starting each Spring by over wintered Queens. They forage on a wide range of foods including sweet substances, Insects and Spiders. They can be aggressive if threatened.

Importance

Can be a nuisance, particularly if nests are near or within a building. They are feared due to their painful sting, which has been known to be quite dangerous, it is common for a wasp sting to bring on anaphylactic shock a potentially fatal condition if not treated immediately by medical services. They have been known to carry diseases by feeding from rotten material but are very rare.
