How to Identify Wasps

What Does a Wasp Look Like?

Wasps are easily identified by their black and yellow markings. They are similar in colour to bees but lack furry-looking body hairs. Instead, the wasp has a somewhat shiny appearance. All wasp nests are started by a queen.

How to Identify a Wasp Nest

Early stages of a nest when exposed will be nothing more than a small grey golf ball sized globe. This will usually be found hanging from the underside of some structure, for protection from weather. They will also find cracks in wall voids, and commonly nest under steps.
