Common & German Wasps

These are the two most commonly found wasp species in the UK and the ones responsible for causing painful wasp stings.
Once indoors, they prefer to build nests in sheltered locations with easy access to the outside, such as lofts, garages and wall cavities. Outside they may nest in old rodent burrows, hollow trees and bushes. 
Do not attempt to deal with a wasp nest yourself call a local pest control specialist. (Wasps Can Be Dangerous) Wasp in Lydney, bees.

European Hornet

Once only common in central southern England, in the last 25 years the species has extended its range to most parts of the UK.   

If you've seen hornets attracted to lights at night, most likely it is the European hornet, Vespa crabro. This species can be quite intimidating as they buzz and beat against lighted windows at night.

They are very defensive, so be sure to maintain a safe distance between you and the hornet. European hornets are very large, about 25 mm (1 inch) in length, with some individuals reaching 35 mm.

An invasive hornet that kills honey bees has been spotted in Britain for the first time, experts have confirmed. The Asian hornet was found near Tetbury, Gloucestershire. Work is under way to find and destroy its nests. The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) has set up a three-mile (5km) surveillance zone. Defra said it had been anticipating the hornets' arrival "for some years" and had a "well-established protocol in place to eradicate them”. The Asian hornet (Vespa velutina), which is up to 2.5cm (1in) long, is now common across Europe after being accidentally introduced to France in 2004 in a shipment of pottery from China.
