Unlike their friendlier relatives, the bees, wasps are highly aggressive pests that don’t hesitate to sting when guarding their nests or when provoked, making them a hazard to the people in the house and nearby. While wasps are helpful by eating other insects that we find annoying, the problem comes from the wasp’s sting, which is particularly painful and can lead to complications if the person stung is allergic to the sting. The number of wasps in a single colony can quickly grow to 10,000.
Wasps often make their homes in any shielded area in your house, most often in the loft, but they can also be found in sheds and any other places that offer some protection from the elements.
The main differences between wasps and bees are:
- Wasps are larger than bees, but have proportionally slimmer bodies,
- They are more brightly coloured,
- Bees have hairier bodies,
- Wasps can sting multiple times while bees cannot.
Wasps can present a serious problem and one that should be left to professional to handle as their aggressive behaviour can lead to the wasps in the nest attacking in a group when provoked.
