The Tree Wasp (Dolichovespula sylvestris) FAQ's
Dolichovespula sylvestris is an aggressive species not normally encountered in the far south. It is most easily identified by its prominent black spot in the centre of its face.
The antennae are distinctive due their yellow base and pale hairs along the sides of the thorax together with two yellow spots at the rear complete the key features.
The spherical nest is commonly found, as the name suggests, hanging in shrubs and hedges and rather prominently in trees, although it has also been found nesting in holes in the ground.
Nets are usually small and rarely exceed a hundred or so active workers, issuing in and out of the nest entrance which is characteristically at the base of the nest.
