Common wasps are instantly recognisable because of their yellow and black stripes. They are social insects and live in underground nests of up to 10,000 workers. The wasps do not construct their own burrow but will choose one which already exists, such as an abandoned animal burrow, a corner of a garden shed, or the loft of a house.
Areas found: Nests can be found in the ground, in bushes/trees on buildings and into cavity of buildings.
Signs of infestations: Live Wasps, nests
