Wasp nests can be dangerous to handle. Rely on professional treatments to keep safe from stings
Wasps can often be confused with bees, in particular Honey Bees - however these bees vary in colour from golden brown to almost black and are furrier than wasps. If you suspect you have Honey Bees, visit the British Bee Keepers Association find a swarm collector site, to find a bee keeper local to you, who can offer advice on a bee swarm.

Wasps can build their nests outdoors under sheltered eaves or, if they can gain access, wasps will find sheltered areas inside your home, such as:
If a nest is discovered early enough in spring, removal using DIY wasp products may be possible but the danger from stings will remain.
Wasps have the potential to attack in large numbers if their nest is disturbed.
