Agitating a wasp is never a good idea but, when wasps are near their nest, they can be even more alert to perceived threats. Without a queen, the nest will die thus, the soldier wasps will protect their nest at all cost.
Simply walking past it, detecting a lot of noise, or the nest being vibrated are all signals to the soldier wasps that the nest – and their beloved queen – could be under attack. A lone wasp may emerge but, it will release a chemical, detectable by the other soldier wasps, leading to attack which can be at best, very painful and at worst, fatal for some people.
Not all wasps nest in colonies either; some are lone wasps, making their nest in the garden and other wasps also nest naturally within the trees, shrubs and the earth. Only aggressive if their nest is actually disturbed, we can often live with these nests for a few months.
