Queen wasps emerge and start working on new nests in the Spring, as the weather gets warmer.

By the Summer months, wasp nests are working overtime, with up to 300 eggs being produced every day and up to 5,000 adults feeding grubs and building the nest structure.

In the UK you’re most likely to come across (Vespula vulgaris) and German Wasps (Vespula germanica). Both species are yellow and black striped, and have painful stings that can cause allergic reactions.

Problems Caused by Wasps

Wasps stings can be very painful.

They can also spread disease from eating rotting food .
