Wasp nests can seem to just appear overnight, and the first time you find them is usually when you’re being chased or stung by them. They can be quite aggressive towards anything which comes near their nest.
They will defend their nest and the young ones growing there to the death. Unlike bees which can only sting once, wasps can sting several times without dying.
Wasp Nest Removal – How to not get stung
When removing a wasp nest in Adelaide there are a few things that you can do to protect yourself against getting stung. Here are a few pointers for you to consider:
- Remove the wasp nest at night time when they are less active
- Cover all exposed skin areas
- Work quickly
- Do not attempt if you think you are allergic or are allergic to bee stings
- Get the nest area treated by a professional to reduce the risk of another wasp nest forming
- If you are afraid or scared of them, please call a professional at Jim’s Pest Control to help you
Wasps are very protective of their nest, and their natural instinct is to protect the nest and young. Quite often any gap in your protective clothing will be found by a wasp, and it will use this to access your skin.

Where do they build their nests?
Wasps will build their nests in different locations depending on the species. Here are some examples of where 3 common wasps found in Adelaide build their nests:
- Paper wasps like to build their nests under the eave lines of houses, but have been known to build nests under plant leaves.
- Mud wasps tend to build mud nests on the sides of buildings and around windows. Mud wasps aren’t all bad as they catch spiders in the garden, and stuff them into their mud cocoons for the young larvae to feed on.
