Wasp can pose quite a severe threat to the safety of humans and animals.
The two most well known species are the European Wasp and the English wasp, which have both been introduced from overseas.
Both are capable of inflicting severe stings. Unlike a bee, wasps can sting repeatedly.
Wasps are about the same size as a bee but have a distinctive yellow markings on their black body and yellow legs.
In Spring and Summer they can be very aggressive and will swarm to attack anything they see as a threat.
