How to tell if i have Hornets.

Identifying a wasp nest can be straightforward

  • Nest can be found in tree trunks, bushes, sides of buildings, barns, attics, hollow walls.
  • They have a distinctive orange abdomen with brown stripes
  • Distance yourself from what you think is a wasp nest and watch for a short period to see if wasps are actually going in and out of a hole
  • It could be that wasps have found a food source in the area, you will be able to establish a flight path to see where the wasps are going to and from
  • If you are finding wasps on a daily basis indoors there is more than likely a nest in the building ( Loft area,cavity wall)
  • Wasps dont always build nests in roofs so be careful whilst investigating check all areas for example Shed,Around compost bins Do not lift the lid  playhouse or equipment, holes in trees, under patio slabs and wooden decking, bird boxes and the list could go on.
