Wasp Facts

The common wasp in the UK is a very distinctive insect. They are 10-15 mm in length, are bright yellow in colour with black bands.

common wasp

You will start to see wasps flying around in the spring when the queens search for a site to establish a nest.

Typical nest sites include trees, cavities in buildings, underground, lofts and sheds. The queen builds a starter nest from wood pulp and saliva, from which she creates a kind of paper.

The wasps’ nest tends to be shaped like a rugby ball and is a grey colour.

The wasp nest and colony will increase in size throughout the summer until broken down just before autumn.

Wasps are likely to sting if they feel under threat or believe the nest will be attacked.

Wasps aren’t all bad. Their diet consists of other insect larvae, including flies. The problem is this their attraction to sugary foods. This is why they can be a nuisance around fruit trees, in pub gardens and at BBQs.

Wasps do not spread disease but their sting can be very painful and can also cause an allergic reaction in some people.

If you have tried to get rid of wasps yourself but are still having a problem then it is time to get professional help.

Prevention and After Care


To avoid having to get rid of wasps every year consider taking the following steps.


  • Wasps don’t tend to build nests in the same place so it is unlikely that wasps will return to build a nest the following year in the same spot.
  • It is difficult to know where a wasp may decide to set up a nest but the best thing to do is watch out for wasp activity early in the spring in those types of places that wasps prefer. If you start to see a few wasps regularly flying back and forth from a site it is possible a small nest is there.
  • Even if you do not have a nest on your premises wasps can be a nuisance during the summer as their nests break down and they look for sources of sugar. To avoid this keep any sugary foods or drinks covered. Particularly when dining outside. If you are a business with alfresco dining consider placing wasp traps in the trees to divert them from your customers.
  • If you have a garden where you grow fruit make sure to clean up any windfalls and keep your compost bins covered too.
