A wasp sting is a memorable experience, and although the insects do not transmit disease, they can cause severe pain and also serious allergic reactions. Unlike bees, wasps can sting many times in succession, which means they can be particularly unpleasant if trapped in clothing.
Wasps feed on insect larvae, carrion and fruits. They build nests from paper, which they make by chewing wood. This means that a wasp colony can cause significant damage to wooden structures.
A typical nest can contain 1,000+ wasps and it can be very dangerous to try and eliminate a nest without taking the right precautions because wasps will respond in numbers to a perceived threat.
Note that bee hives are a very different challenge to wasps' nests and Attack Pests can arrange relocation of a bee hive if it is a nuisance where it is currently situated.
Your options include traps, poisons, glue boards, dust formulations & fumigation.
