Wasps make nests in the ground, punga trees, and wall cavities, and can become aggressive quickly. Aggressive wasps become more prevalent towards the end of summer.
Being stung by a wasp is a painful experience and can even be life threatening to the one in thirty people who are allergic to stings. Even if someone is not allergic, a wasp sting around the mouth or throat can still be a major concern if the swelling leads to blocked airways. For this reason it is important to ensure that wasp nests are properly treated and removed.
If you have noticed a high number of wasps in your home or garden it is likely that there is a nest nearby. Wasp nests are often found in covered areas with easy outside access such as wall cavities, roof spaces or under the eaves of buildings. A single nest may contain thousands of wasps and they can attack in large numbers if disturbed or threatened, so take great care when dealing with wasp nests. This threat of attack is also a reason why DIY treatment of wasp nests is not recommended, especially for those who are sensitive to stings.
The risk of encountering aggressive wasps is particularly high towards the end of summer as the numbers in the colony swell. Where possible, it is always preferable to destroy a wasps nest as early as possible before the size of the nest and its population increases.
