They can often be found nesting within very common areas such as the eaves of a roof, along the river banks, small holes underground, small holes within the brickwork and the cavity walls of premises, The rough location of a wasp nest can often be spotted during a sunny day as this is normally when the wasps are most active.

Here in the UK the resident wasp species that cause problems are the German wasp (Vespula Germanica) and our common wasp (Vespula Vulgaris). The common wasp will likely be the culprit found building its nest within the roof of houses and other structures. These wasp nests can also be found outside within bushes and also built in the ground. The Vespula Germanica (German wasp) is likely to build its nest in bushes which can be around head height, putting passers-by at a higher risk should it become disturbed.
