Wasps and bees are terrifying to most people and are worthy of fear. Unfortunately, almost everybody in their lifetime has the uncomfortable memory of being stung by either a bee or wasp. They are a common part of our environment and their species vary dramatically.
The common paper wasps build their nest hanging upside down often from eaves, window sills or any horizontal surface that is saturated by sun.
As the name would suggest they are an import from Europe. European wasps have been in Australia since the early 80’s they build their nests out of a grey papier mache type material normally in wall cavities, roof voids ,trees or in the ground. They are a super aggressive wasp slightly larger than the honey bee in length but thinner and have definite yellow and black bands with a shiny complexion. These would be the most aggressive wasps in Australia and unfortunately over the last few years their numbers seem to be rising.
The European honey bee is an introduced species; however, it is one of the welcome species unless they are living in a wall cavity above your front door. European honey bees do not attack in swarms like the African Bee or some wasps but if disturbed it is certainly an experience that you don’t want.
