    Wasps have a painful sting and can be highly aggressive. They may strike many times, unlike bees, and even inject a pheromone that draws in other wasps. In New Zealand, wasps prefer to build their nests in open spaces on buildings, such as entrances and walls beneath eaves, where they can readily come into contact with people on a pleasant sunny day. If you think there might be a wasp nest on your property, call the experts rather than taking the chance of getting stung.

    Common Wasp Questions

    1. Where do wasps live?

      Wasps make tiny nests near homes, inside fruit, and in the soil. They may use paper or mud to build their nest. It is well known that European wasps build their nests underground or very high up on walls.

    2. When are wasps most active?

      The daytime is when wasps are most active, while some species are only active in the morning. The warmer months of the year are when they are most active. Wasps can become hostile when they are close to their nests, trash bins, or food.

    3. Why are wasps dangerous?

      The aggressive European wasp is the second pest responsible for hospitalisations, after bees. When families are spending time outside in the warmer months, they are usually most active. The most vulnerable groups include kids and anyone with wasp allergies. Multiple stings from the European wasp can be extremely painful.

    4. Do I need professional wasp help?

      A wasp nest in your yard can be deadly, especially for young children or anyone who has allergies. If the nest is in danger, wasps will sting repeatedly. Wasp nests should not be disturbed. Get Flick to securely remove the nest.

    5. What should I do if I spot a wasp nest?

      Avoid approaching any wasp nests you see on your property. Wasps may act violently if they feel threatened or when defending their nest. Calling Flick, who will remove the nest from your property carefully, is the safest approach to get rid of wasps.

    Common Wasp Species

    European Wasp


    The body of the European Wasp is yellow with triangle-shaped black markings. Worker wasps range in size from 12 to 17mm.


    There can be up to 25,000 wasps in a colony. The majority of the colony eventually dies over the winter, and only the young queen wasps emerge in the spring to construct nests and lay eggs. In the summer, when workers take over nest construction, problems with them may start to affect homeowners.


    European Wasps build their nests in shrubs, hollow trees, and old animal burrows. They construct nests indoors or close to buildings in protected areas with simple access to the outside, like garages or lofts. They are drawn to homes because they enjoy sweet foods in the summer. When this happens, worker wasps can annoy people. To protect their nest, female wasps will sting severely and repeatedly.
