5 quick questions about wasps and wasps nest’s

Wasps are not active during the night. After all the wasps have returned to the nest during the evening, the nest can then be removed.

Wasps eat “fast” carbohydrates – anything they can find that contains sugar. They also hunt down and eat other insects, or feed on proteins they can scavenge from carrion.

Only the queen wasp survives the whole winter; and that is providing she finds a frost-free place to overwinter.

Wasps, and especially the European hornet, eat cabbage white caterpillars and larvae from garden chafers (various types of beetles).

No occurrence of the Asian hornet has been registered yet. As of yet, the most northerly point it has been seen in Europe is Hamburg, about 140 km from the Danish border.

What is a wasp?

A wasp is a flying insect that most people have met at one point or another during the Danish summer months. In Denmark, we have seven different species of wasps that all resemble each other with their characteristic body shape and black and yellow stripes. A wasp community consists of a queen, males and workers (females with undeveloped genital organs).

In Denmark, a wasp lives for about a year – they die every autumn. It is only the fertilised queens from each nest that survive through the following winter. Every spring, they start again from scratch. They build new nests, lay their eggs and take care of their young. Thus, new wasp nests are built every year. However, a wasp queen may also choose to occupy an old wasp nest, which is why it is extremely important to remove them from the house and its surroundings. We will go into more detail on this further on in the text.

What is a wasp nest and where do you typically see them?

All wasps built a nest that they live in. This is called a wasp nest. A wasp nest is usually spherical and built from a material that closely resembles paper. This is because it is built of wood fibre that the wasp has gnawed off and mixed with its saliva. The location of a wasp nest usually depends on the species that built it. Where some species prefer holes in the ground, others prefer to build their nests in bushes, trees, under roofs or in attics. The size of a wasp nest can vary a great deal, and can contain everything from a couple of hundred to many thousands of wasps in one single nest.

Udendørs hvepsebo

If you discover a wasp nest on your grounds or near your home, we strongly recommend that you have it removed. Wasps can be extremely aggressive and many people are stung every year. A wasp sting can be very painful and the wasp´s venom is actually similar to snake venom. Fortunately, it is rarely dangerous because the venom occurs in such small doses. When people react violently or become very ill as the result of a wasp sting, it is usually because they are allergic to the venom or because they have been stung around their mouths or necks where swollen mucous membranes can hinder respiration.

If you have children playing in your garden during summer, you should definitely remove a wasp nest. A sting on a child’s face can have serious consequences and, of course, children can´t be expected to know that they shouldn´t wave their arms and legs around when a wasp is near. A swarm of wasps can be a real nuisance and can quickly ruin what should have been a lovely summer´s day on the terrace.
