I keep finding queen wasps inside my house does this mean I have a wasp nest?
The easy answer is it all depends on the time of year you are experiencing this problem. For example, if it’s early April and May, you will find Queen wasps waking up from hibernation, and they will be looking for a nesting site. Unfortunately, there is not a lot you can do to prevent this from happening. Unfortunately, it’s just the time of year.
Suppose you are unlucky enough to have a queen wasp that’s trapped inside your property. In that case, you can always leave the window open, and usually, it will find its way out.
How giant is a queen wasp?
The queen wasp looks very similar to a normal worker Wasps. The only difference is the size usually. She’s a lot longer and measures around 2.25 cm in length, whereas workers only measure 1.2 to 1.7 cm.
