Wasps are large insects with a narrow waist, and an abdomen that narrows toward then end (where the stinger is). Australia is home to a number of wasp species, but the three main species include: paper wasps, mud-dauber wasps, and European wasps. Paper wasps are present all year round but become more active during Spring season. European wasps can only be found on areas with temperate climates like Victoria, Southern NSW, South Australia, and Tasmania. The most common sign of wasp infestation is the presence of a nest on the eaves of homes or hanging on plant and trees. If you see wasps flying around, there’s probably a nest nearby as wasps only travel about 50 – 250 meters from their nest. If you want to get rid of a single wasp flying about, aerosol is a good option. Make sure you give it a good spray and leave the area as they turn on their attack-mode when sprayed.
