Some Key Facts About Wasps
Difference Between Wasps And Bees:
Types Of Wasp Species Found In Melbourne
European wasps are about 12 – 17 mm and too stout with bright yellow-black bands on their abdomen and a pair of black spots on yellow bands. These aggressive stingers are opportunistic predators and scavengers that eat dead animals, live insects, processed pet & human food, fruits, etc.
Yellow Jackets (Social Wasp)
Also called as social wasps, yellow jackets have yellow-black heads and patterned abdomen resembling stripes. They can sting multiple times, causing swelling, pain and allergic reactions to people who are sensitive to this venom. They feed on insects, spiders and human food.
This type of wasp features two black antennae and two pairs of wings with the first pair larger than the second pair. They fly around by bringing their legs close to their body.
Native Paper Wasp
Native paper wasps have small heads with medium sized eyes and antennae. They have a slender body, narrow waist and yellow/orange bands on their abdomen. Adults feed on nectar, but they look for caterpillars to feed their larvae.
Many sand wasps are black with yellow, white or green markings on their body. They build their nests in the ground. Adult wasps feed on nectar but they hunt for flies and insects to feed their larvae. Their stings can be painful but not as aggressive as the stings of the European wasps.
Mud Nesting Wasps
Mud nesting wasps come in several colours and sizes, but found mostly in black or black & orange combinations. They have very long slender abdomen, which is why they are called thread-waisted wasps.
White-Faced Brown Paper Wasp
These medium-sized paper wasps are reddish brown in colour with creamy white face and thin white rings on their waist, abdomen and shoulder. They usually build their nests on trees, rocks, caves and under bridges.
Tree Brown Paper Wasp
These wasps are bright dark brown in colour with six yellow spots on thorax, yellow dot at the wing base and wide yellow band on abdominal segments. This species of wasps nest in the hollows of living trees.

If you spot wasp nests in your building, yard or nearby your property, you should call in the exterminators as soon as possible. Here are a few reasons why wasp nest removal is important.
- Wasps are very aggressive insects, and even the slightest whack can make them violent and attack people around them.
- The stings of wasps are highly painful, and you need to take medical treatment if you have allergies to their venom.
- Wasps can sting repeatedly and it can be deadly if you have not received proper medical treatment.
- If you have a large nest on your property, there can be hundreds of wasps. The more the number of wasps, the more the number of people they can sting.
It does not mean that the wasps will not return if the nest is removed from your property. They may still return if they find favourable conditions to survive. In order to prevent the recurrence of pests, let’s share some tricks and tips that restrict the chances of another infestation in your property.
- Don’t leave pet food outside. The leftover pet food should be cleared off immediately.
- Remove food scraps and pick-up fallen fruits from your garden/backyard quickly.
- Trim your trees and shrubs, and mow the grass in your yard on a regular basis.
- Make sure that the trash bins are closed with tightly-fitting lids. Also place the bins away from the doors & windows.
- Keep woodpiles off the ground and place them a distance away from the exterior of your home.
- Inspect your home and garden regularly for nests. Early on, the nest will be smaller with fewer wasps, which is easier to treat.

One effective DIY method for wasp control involves making a simple wasp trap using a combination of apple cider vinegar and a few drops of dish soap and some water. Mix them all together to create a solution. The sweet aroma emanates from the vinegar lures the wasps, and the soap disrupts their surface tension, causing them to drown.
Vinegar is a natural and non-toxic solution for wasp control recommended by wasp nest removal experts. Its strong smell is a deterrent, disrupting the wasps’ ability to communicate and find their way back to their nests, ultimately discouraging them from invading the area.
Wasps are highly sensitive to smells, and vinegar’s acrid odour is particularly bothersome to them. Additionally, the acidic nature of vinegar can be harsh on their delicate exoskeletons, causing discomfort and deterring them from staying in the vicinity.
