A&S Pest Control: Wasps

Wasp Nest

INFORMATION: Many people confuse wasps with bees, particularly honey bees, which do have a somewhat similar appearance and are around the same size. The Common wasp is the one most usually found in the UK and it always has bright yellow and black stripes. The honey bees' stripes are more subtle - a kind of black and dark brown or black and golden brown colour. Honey bees are usually more hairy than wasps too. Bumblebees are less often confused with wasps as their bodies are rounder and much furrier. Wasps and bees can also be differentiated by their nests. Wasps build paper nests either underground or in cavities in trees, walls and buildings and their nests are usually spherical ranging in size from that of an orange to a large beach ball. Bees build their nests out of wax cells that they stack on top of one another. Honeybee nests tend to be larger than those of wasps. Bumblebees nest underground or in compost heaps or piles of leaves and similar. The thing to remember about wasps is that they'll only sting if they feel threatened, so it's best to leave them alone and resist the urge to wave your arms around and shoo them away. This can aggravate them and if they sting or are killed, they release a pheromone that lets the rest of the nest know it's under threat and instead of just one wasp, you could have hundreds of aggressive wasps around. Unlike bees, wasps can sting a number of times. Different people will react in different ways to the sting, from almost no effect at all to severe allergic reactions. Most will suffer pain and swelling to various extents. Stings are best treated with ice packs and antihistamine creams, though those suffering extreme reactions or with stings close to the face and neck should seek urgent medical attention.
