WaspsWasps' nests are generally hidden from site and situated in the ground, in trees, hedges or eves or inside buildings: in air vents, behind fascia boards, attic spaces, chimneys etc. Queen wasps build their nests in April and the nests can grow to be as large as a football later in the summer. Generally you will not actually catch sight of the nest but just notice the wasps flying in and out of the opening. Adult wasps eat plant nectar and fruit. and collect insects and caterpillars to feed to their larvae.

AntsThe Black Garden Ant, commonly found in Ireland, is 3-5 mm in length, and is black or very dark brown. In the mating season, of July and August, some of the ants grow wings and once a new queen has mated she will discard her wings and find a suitable location for a tunnel for her new colony. Colonies can be detected by the small piles of earth around holes in the soil or at the base of exterior walls. Ants can roam over a wide area in search for food: once located, other members of the colony will follow established trails to cluster around the food source, creating a nuisance in homes and businesses.
