Solitary Wasps: As their name suggests, solitary wasps are loners, and only build smallish nests, or use holes in the earth or gaps left in timber. Solitary wasps are seldom noticed by the vast majority of people in Halstead, and since they pray on harmful garden pests such as aphids, greenfly and caterpillars, have a predominantly beneficial impact in the garden.

Social Wasps: The wasps that you see swarming in their 1000's in Halstead and creating larger nests are the social wasps. Such really large nests can be something of a problem as they expand, and can even put a property off limits until appropriately treated. Presenting an immediate hazard, especially if there happen to be pets or youngsters on the property, the nests of social wasps will have to be eliminated and removed by a highly skilled professional.


If the nest is quite small, and your household is not being troubled by the wasps, it can be left alone. As soon as the summer is over, wasps will just abandon the nest and never return to it. The number of wasps that you notice will substantially diminish during the autumn, and over winter they'll die off apart from the new queen wasps. That isn't to suggest that the same area won't see the return of wasps, only that they will not reuse an old nest. An old wasp nest doesn't decay or rot because it's made out of a cellulose (paper like) material, which means it can be left undisturbed and won't cause any additional issues.
