Questions answered about wasps - Page:18
In the spring, it can be difficult to tell the difference between bees and wasps.
Bumblebees will have 10-15 flying around in circles around the nest entrance.
Honey bees will have 100's of them and if nesting they will be bringing pollen (yellow balls on the side of the bees) into the nest.
Wasps arrive and disappear into the nest without hesitation. They leave the nest and fly away quickly.
Take a look at the videos on our homepage and compare what you have with what you can see on the videos.
Wasps regularly remove cavity wall insulation. They do this to make to space so they can expand the size of their nest.
If you or a member of your family (especially older members) are stung by a wasp or hornet and feel unwell afterwards, do not delay, seek professional medical attention immediately.
