A Guide To Finding Wasps In Your Property

Common Paper Wasps are commonly found in Australia. In late springs, when the days get warm, the lifespan of wasps begin. The queen of wasps chooses a site and the rest of the wasps start building the nest. Wasps are most commonly found under window sheds and on lawn trees. You might start noticing the increasing presence of wasps when their sighting is near. Are you confused between wasps and bees? Looking for a pest control method to eliminate wasps? Let’s discuss everything regarding how to find wasps and get rid of them now.

Easy Ways To Find Wasps At Your Place

  • Is It A Bee or A Wasp?

Honey bees and wasps look identical to us. Although both have talents to sting you, there are some identifiable differences between the two. Wasps have a slender body structure and have a shiny sleek waist area. While bees are round and are covered with hair all over their bodies. Bees are commonly seen near flowers, collecting nectar and pollen grains while wasps are commonly found around drinks and foods.

  • Where To Find A Wasps Nest? 

Wasps mostly reside in roof areas or voids between buildings, making it extremely tough to notice them. You can easily look for wasp nests in bird boxes, roof spaces, wall voids, garages, under eaves and shades. 

  • What Is The Size Of Wasps Nests?

The size of the nest depends on the season in which it is discovered. In late springs or early summers, the queen wasp stays busy in building her nest and gives birth to the primary generation of wasps. At this time, the nest is generally the size of a tennis ball. In warm summers new wasps give birth to the second generation and the size continues to get larger and can reach up to the diameter of a basketball.

  • Other Areas To Look For Wasps

Regularly inspect your lawn trees, near light fixtures, below fallen logs, cracks of buildings, behind shutters, mailbox stands and bushes. These are some common house places that attract wasps to make nests and breed.

  • Go After A Flight Route

Wasps continuously move throughout the day to bring food for the queen. You can easily notice wasp sightings as they follow the same path every day. By following their route you can easily detect their next home.

If there’s a nest in your roof area, you can easily hear the continuous buzzing sound of wasps throughout the day. Each nest contains hundreds of wasps that rush in and out throughout the day producing buzzing sounds.
