What is a Wasp?

Wasps are insects belonging to the order of insects known as “Hymenoptera” - the same order containing ants and bees. There are a large number of native wasp species in New Zealand, which have evolved here, and have never become a nuisance. In contrast, there are now five social species, which have been accidentally introduced into New Zealand, in recent years, and which are classed as pests, these are:Wasp_Nest_-_No6.jpg

  • The Common Wasp

  • The German Wasp

  • The Scoliid Wasp

Why do I have them?

There are many diverse reasons for having wasps on your property. Each year in spring, the queens will emerge from overwintering and begin to search for new nesting locations. As adults, many wasps feed on nectar and are also attracted to water sources such as ornamental ponds and swimming pools during summer months. Feeding varies from species to species, but may include other insects, nectar and pollen.

Are they dangerous?

While most of the time these insects are considered more of a nuisance than a danger, some species do pack a powerful sting that (depending on the individual’s allergic reaction to it and the placement of the sting), could be considered a health threat.
