Social wasps are considered pests when they become excessively common, or nest close to buildings. People are most often stung in late summer, when wasp colonies stop breeding new workers; the existing workers search for sugary foods and are more likely to come into contact with humans.

Wasp information

Wasps can range in size and colour, but can usually be identified by a pinched waist. Some wasps are aggressive and can sting when threatened. Unlike bees, wasps can sting multiple times. In Australia the European wasp is particularly dangerous because they are attracted to sugary drinks. As we spend the summer outdoors, often the wasp can crawl inside soft drink cans and bite the throat when accidentally swallowed, causing a blockage in the airways.

Prevention of wasps

Adelaide and the Adelaide Hills are attractive environments for a variety of species of wasp. A Pest Demise Property Inspection can quickly identify a wasp nest in the vicinity and determine the best method or combination of methods to combat the problem.
