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.

Egg – Larvae – Pupae - Adult
Eggs: many thousands laid by the Queen in hexagonal cells
Larvae: legless Grubs nurtured by workers within their cells
Pupae: Develop approx in 2 weeks in their cells
Adult: Workers winged with black and yellow stripes with an average size of 12mm. Queens are also winged with the same colouring and are slightly larger.

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.

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.
