Bee and Wasp Control in Hobart

Pest Summary

  • They construct rounded community nests, normally oval in shape, usually about 1 metre in length
  • But, here in Australia, where colonies may live over winter, the nests may be 3 to 4 metres high and contain up to 100,000 individuals.
  • They are predatory social insects and often act as scavengers in urban areas
  • They tend to nest around human habitation where there are greater opportunities for finding food. This food may include fruits, confectionery, cakes or soft drinks.
  • European wasps also destroy honeybees. In spring and summer, the wasps are very aggressive and will swarm to attack anybody whom they consider a threat to the nest.
  • The sting is more painful than that of a bee and each wasp may sting the victim many times.

More Information on Bees and Wasps

The hymenopteran insects known as wasps can also pose quite a severe threat to the safety of humans and animals.

Many species are capable of inflicting severe stings but two species which have gained prominence in some parts of Australia are the European wasp (Vespula germanica) and the English wasp (Vespula vulgaris).

Both of these species have been introduced from overseas. The European wasp can now be found in Tasmania, Victoria and Sydney

Removing honey bee nests from cavities (walls of houses, hollow trees) is a time-consuming, labour-intensive practice that should be undertaken by professionals.

Continuous honey bee flight activity to and from a hole in a building is an indication of a nest. Many times, this can be confirmed by listening for bees buzzing inside.
