In Ireland wasps tend to be most active during the warm summer months. Common wasps are social insects, and live in colonies that can number upwards of 10,000 individuals. The nest is a grey paper nest built in or on a structure capable of supporting it. The queen searches for a hollow tree, wall cavity, rock crevice or even a mammal-made hole to build a nest. One colony cycle lasts for approximately 6–11 months. The wasps’ sting is primarily used to subdue prey, but is also a very effective means of defence. Wasps will defend the nest aggressively if disturbed, and the sting is thought to release a pheromone, a chemical signal that triggers other wasps in the vicinity to attack, so it is best to leave a discovered nest well alone.
