Wasps can be a nuisance in London but are not responsible for the spread of disease. While they are disliked because of their sting, this will only be used by most species when the wasp is aroused or frightened. There is also the danger of anaphylactic shock from wasp’s stings, so caution is always advised when confronted by a wasps nest.
Wasps are known to cause damage to ripened fruit and are a nuisance when attracted to sweet smelling foods.
The benefits from wasps are not, however, so widely appreciated for in the spring and early summer wasp grubs are fed on by other insect pests.
Why have I got wasps?
Wasps are probably the most familiar and disliked of all British insects, their bodies bear the characteristic black, and yellow wasp-nest bands and they have a narrow waist in the middle of the body. The worker is 10-15mm in length, and the queen is usually 20mm in length, both have two pairs of wings which lock together. Only females can sting, which is near the tip of the abdomen. Several species of wasp exist in the UK but most abundant are the Common wasp (Vespula vulgaris) and German wasp, also known as the European wasp (Vespula germanica).
Both these species nest underground or in the cavities of trees, walls and other parts of buildings.
The queen emerges from the nest in the autumn and after mating selects a suitable site for hibernation. Late in the following spring hibernation comes to an end and the surviving queens select a nest site. The nest is usually located in the ground or roof cavities and is built from wood pulp which is moulded into the outer shell of the nest and contains many internal chambers. The queen lays an egg into each of the chambers and these hatch into larvae which are fed by the queen on dead insects. When fully grown the larvae pupate and from the pupae, sterile workers emerge. These workers assist in rearing new larvae and the new queens.

Towards the end of the summer, the queen lays many eggs which produce male wasps and these mate with the new queens. As the weather becomes colder in late autumn, all the wasps die except the new queens which fly away to find sites for hibernation. The old nests are not re-used the following year.
