Below is a short guide to wasp nests.
What Does a Nest Look Like?
Generally speaking, wasp nests will be made out of wood that has been stripped from fences and other easily accessible materials and chewed. Usually resembling an oval-like shape, the size of the nest may vary depending on the size of the colony. As for the location of the nest, it may be anywhere from in a tree to in a property owner’s loft, dependent on what the conditions allow for.
Signs of a Nest Close-by
There are some tell-tale signs that there may be a wasp nest close by or even in your home. These include an unusually high number of wasps (or a sudden increase) and, by watching the flight pattern of wasps, you may be able to determine where the nest is, if there is one at all. Also, wasps may get more aggressive if they feel as though their nest is under threat, so take care when approaching the area, but keep an eye on behaviour.
