Not only can wasps deliver a painful sting, they can also become aggressive if they feel threatened, causing them to swarm. Even if you’re not allergic to a wasp’s sting, repeated stings from multiple wasps can result in anaphylaxis, causing the body to go into shock.
If you’ve identified a wasp nest in or near your home, call House and Home Pest Control immediately to arrange specialist removal of the nest.
How to Tell the Difference Between a Wasps’ Nest and a Beehive
Another difference is in how they build their nests or hives:
- A wasps’ nest will usually be grey or light brown in colour, made up of the pulp from dead wood, and circular in shape.
- Beehives usually have tell-tale hexagon shapes.
Although bees are naturally less aggressive than wasps, they can still pose a significant health risk to humans if their hive is disturbed. As a result, any groups of wasps or bees near living areas should be removed as quickly as possible.
