Wasps make nests in the ground, ponga trees, and wall cavities, and can become aggressive quickly. Aggressive wasps become more prevalent towards the end of summer.
Wasp Nests Large & Small
In March 2019, Bay Pest Services went to battle with a monster wasp nest, measuring 2 metres wide by 2 metres tall! It was the largest nest that owner Chris Brunel had seen in his 30 years in the industry. His estimate was that the nest likely contained over a million wasps!

Anyone who has been stung by a wasp will agree that it can be a very painful experience. To the one in thirty people who are allergic to stings, it can even be life threatening. 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’ve noticed a high number of wasps around your home, it is likely that there is a nest nearby. You’ll commonly find a wasp nest in covered areas with easy outside access. This can include wall cavities, roof spaces or under the eaves of buildings. The risk of encountering aggressive wasps is particularly high towards the end of summer as the numbers in the colony swell. It is always preferable to destroy a nest as early as possible, before the size of the nest and its population increases.
A single nest may contain thousands of wasps and they can attack in large numbers if disturbed or threatened. Therefore, dealing with wasp nests requires great care and experience. The threat of attack is why DIY treatment is not recommended, especially for those sensitive to stings. Most people are unaware of how to get rid of wasps nests properly, so calling a professional is always safest.
