Every year as the summer draws in, wasps begin to make themselves known in and around Kent. Wasps are lovely creatures however sometimes, they can cause us a few problems. Their nests can swell in our loft spaces or sometimes hanging in tree’s posing a threat to the unassuming gardener (or grandchild).

Below I have discussed a few thoughts that I had on wasps whilst I watched the world go by in my garden.

Can I leave a large wasp nest unattended on my property?

Nests of all sizes and shapes are a potential menace to humans as only a small number of wasps pose a considerable threat if irritated. As the summer leaves, most wasp movement will dissolve also. Nonetheless, as the time of year comes to an end the queen of each nest will produce more queen wasps which have been found to nest close by, multiplying your wasp problem. Nests will begin very small but as they establish their growth is accelerated as time proceeds. Developing nests will consume and clear away anything that prevents their passage of growth; in some serious cases structural timbers have been broken by wasp colonies.
