Wasps are distinctive black and yellow striped flying insects that can invade homes and gardens.
There are several varieties that cause problems. They are capable of inflicting a painful sting and are quite territorial.
Wasp nests are treated using special applications of insecticidal dusting powder.
The Island was colonised several years ago by a European wasp which makes it’s nests outside in bushes. Care should be taken when pruning hedges.
