A wasp nest is an extremely dangerous thing to have near any home or business. The most common places that wasps build their nests are in garages, sheds, loft spaces and wall cavities.
A queen wasp will start to build her nest in early spring, at this point the nest will be the size of a golf ball and will have between 6 - 12 larvae inside it which will turn into wasps.
During the summer months the queen will produce more worker wasps until the nest is at full capacity of around 5000. Throughout the summer months the original queen will reproduce more queens, it is these new queens that will start new nests either in the same area or near by.
A queen wasp will never use the same nest more than once.
Wasps have been around for thousands of years far longer than our modern buildings, like many creatures they adapt well to exploit our enviroment.
