Hornet and wasp control can be a dangerous enterprise for an untrained person. It is best to leave such activities to a skilled wasp exterminator. When provoked, wasps can release a pheromone which will attract other wasps to assist. This situation can result in a serious sting and may lead to an allergic reaction which can lead to a victim being hospitalised.
What type of wasps and hornets are found in the UK?
Vespula Vulgaris are the common UK wasp along with Vespula Germanica or the German wasp.

About the nest
A wasp nest has the appearance of being made of a paper-like substance. It will start in size as a small ball and may grow to the size of an inflated beach ball as it becomes established. A colony of three to five thousand wasps, along with a single queen, will inhabit a nest. The worker wasps will live for only a couple of weeks, while the queen will often survive for a year or so.
When a nest is found on a property it is wise to immediately call upon professional services to remove the problem. The danger from multiple wasp stings is great and this is particularly the case where children may be involved. Attempting to deal with a nest without equipment, experience and knowledge can lead to a very painful experience
