Wasp’s nests are commonly found in loft spaces, cavity walls, behind structural cladding and in flower beds. A wasp colony may reach between 3,000 to 30,000 wasps. It can prove to be very dangerous if a wasp nest is disturbed by accident incidents can include children collecting a miss-kicked ball from a hedge, golfers probing a hedge line to try and retrieve a wayward ball and DIY people cutting down overgrown hedges.

The female worker will use her sharp hollow needle structures attached to a venom sack sited at the tip of the abdomen to sting her enemy. Unlike a Bee the wasp can multi-sting. The venom is haemolytic, haemorrhagic and neurotoxic. The venom included histamine which causes the redness, flare and weal in skin.

For most human victims of a wasp sting they will suffer pain and be uncomfortable for a few days and nothing more. However for some it can lead to their body going into anaphalytic shock which can be fatal.
