The most common wasp in Western Australia, European Wasps or Paper Wasps is more common in the hot summer months where they are commonly found nesting under fence capping, pergolas and eaves and around thick vegetation.
, the European Wasp species are attracted to swimming pools during summer in search of moisture. Paper wasps make their nest from wood and plant fibres mixed with saliva making a papery material often grey or brown in colour. They secrete a chemical at the base of the next to repel Ants.
This also means that wasp nests are really common inside garden houses with a mist sprinkler system. These will attract Wasps and is and where most will sting humans.
Unlike Bees European Wasps or Paper Wasp are small in size and are either black and yellow or brown and yellow. Mud Dauber Wasps are much larger than bees and are a bright orange colour.
They are found around the hills and foothills areas of Perth where the Wasps are a huge nuisance making their large mud nests high up on the brick walls. All Wasps are covered under both Pest Packages.
A common problem with wasp removal is that many people confuse bees with Wasps.
Bees are generally larger, coloured black and yellow or brown and have body stripes while Powdered Wasp is smaller, coloured much like the honey bee but are usually orange in colour.
