Expert Wasp Nest Removal in Glasgow and Edinburgh
Seeing wasp nests at your home is not a wonder. In most cases, wasps build their nests in areas that you can least expect including areas like the roof or unused corners of the house gutters.
These insects, also known as Vespula vulgaris form large colonies with a very sophisticated social ‘society’ with a clear hierarchy.
A colony may be created by several thousands of wasps and are most prominent during late summer and early autumn. Each colony produces new and mated queens which later die out during the winter.
The queen of these insects spends most of its time hidden within the nest producing young and only comes out during spring to set up a new nest. The wasps will use saliva and wood fibres to make a wasp nest, (paper) which grows over the summer and generally reaches up to the size of a football (although believe us, we have dealt with bigger!).
They usually hide their nests in the roof, wall cavity, under bushes, or even underground to protect the offsprings. Interestingly, the very first offsprings take up the nests chores and are therefore referred to as the worker wasps.

Worker Wasps in Glasgow and Edinburgh
The worker wasps measures between 12 and 15 mm, has paired black spots on their sides, and bright yellow and black markings which form arrow-like shapes in the middle of their abdomen. Mostly, they feed on sweet substances including food and drinks, secretions from sucking insects, as well as fermenting fruits.
When any disturbance occurs around their nests, they can get dangerous since they swarm up to attack whatever is causing trouble. Their venom can be very painful but not dangerous for most humans. However, many people have severe allergies, and in extreme cases, this can result in death.
