The most common wasps found on the Gold Coast and in Northern NSW are Solitary & Social Wasps such as Yellow Jackets, Hornets, and Paper Wasps. Wasps are not typically aggressive unless their nests are threatened but their sting is painful, and some people can have allergic reactions.
It is best not to disturb them, call our friendly team to come and treat them for you and follow these precautions:
- Keep children and pets away from the wasps
- Keep doors and windows closed until the bees have clustered
- If you do go outside ensure you are wearing closed shoes
- Do not provoke, poke or attempt to chase away the wasps
