The types of wasp found in the UK are generally the types known as Vespula vulgaris and German Wasps known as Vespula germanica. Both of these types of wasp are capable of inflicting a painful sting on humans if the wasps feel they are threatened. Some people can also suffer an allergic reaction to a wasp sting that may be potentially life-threatening. Consequently, it is necessary to get rid of wasp nest problems as soon as they are identified.
