Common Wasp Removal Melbourne

Wasps do actually pollinate plants. Wasps are still considered a pest because wasps do sting and even cause severe allergic reactions.

Introduction to Common Wasps

Wasps appear to be sleek, having a smooth exoskeleton, legs with few hairs and wings. They have mouth parts used for biting and antennae. Wasps comprise more than 10,000 kinds of species. They are divided into solitary wasps and social wasps and the majority of them are solitary wasps.

They live in large groups in gaps in houses and roofs and live in nests built of ‘paper’, which is formed by the queen chewing up wood! They feed on high energy food like nectar, rotten fruit and sugary picnics, whilst their young are fed on small insects.

Identification of Common Wasps and Wasp Nests

Common wasp nests are beige in colour and usually conical in shape. These nests have a small opening at the lower end. Wasp nests are usually found in cavities above or below the ground, though also boards or roof cavities.

Wasps build nests from papier-mâché made from wood scraped chewed to a pulp. Each tiny mouthful is pasted in place and shaped to perfection using their mandibles and antennae. Each nest is started by a lone queen. She builds a sturdy downward stalk, which she daubs with a chemical that repels ants.
