The video shows Paper Wasps that I treated recently at a business premises in Thornleigh.
These wasps usually make their nests under cover. They are often found under eaves, the underside of trees & ferns & even under garden furniture. If they are not close to people traffic, they can be left untreated, but they can be very aggressive if disturbed & even casting a shadow as you pass them can make them attack. The sting is extremely painful, as I know from several personal experiences & the affected area can be red & swollen for several days & itch like crazy. Some people have severe allergies to these stings & can even go into anaphylactic shock.
People often try to treat these wasps themselves. I hear stories of people hosing them down, spraying with household aerosols & even smoking them with lighted paper. We do not advise this, they are very unpredictable & I wear a bee veil, gauntlet gloves & overalls tucked in when conducting a treatment.
