Recognising the Signs of a Wasp Nest

The first step is to identify the wasp nests. Wasp nest has an exterior that looks something like grey tissue paper that has been pasted together into small strips. At first, a wasp nest will start off very small. But slowly the nest will grow rapidly in size.

The next step is to find out where exactly wasp nests are built, so you can keep an eye out for them before it becomes big. Generally, nests are built in sheltered spots with easy access to the outside. You can often find the nests in wall cavities, roof spaces, in bird boxes, sheds or garages, near flowering, fruiting trees or bushes.

Lastly, as we said earlier wasp removal needs to be handled by a professional. The reason that even a small sting can harm or prove fatal to anyone, even those without a bee allergy.
