Fear Of Wasps Ireland

hypnotherapist cork

Hi, my name is Paul Hunter. If you’ve been googling “fear of wasps” in order to find a solution for your wasp phobia, then you’ve come to the right page.

I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, CBT Practitioner and Life Coach. For the past fifteen years I have been helping both children and adults from all over Ireland to overcome their irrational fear of wasps.

Approximately one in every five people has a fear of wasps. This is relatively easy to comprehend because:

  • Wasps can sting you, causing pain for up to a week afterwards.
  • Nobody really loves wasps in the same way as some people love dogs and cats even thought there are others that love them.
  • They are attracted to sweet things so having food outside almost guarantees a wasp or two.

One of the questions I am regularly asked is “can wasps sense fear?”. Wasps cannot smell fear but they can detect fearful behaviour such as waving your arms around, moving quickly, running away, screaming, etc. This is a signal to the wasp to defend itself using a sting.

So the most sensible thing to do is remain still and quiet. If you’d like help to achieve that, click on the button below to make an enquiry now!

When Do Wasps Die Off In Ireland?

Within wasp colonies, there are “worker” wasps and “queen” wasps. The queen hibernates during winter and awakens the following spring to form a new colony.

The “worker” wasps all die off during the winter, mainly when the weather gets really cold, normally around December. With weather patterns changing due to climate change, this may vary from year to year.

You’ll probably be quite surprised to know that wasps typically only live for about twenty to twenty-five days.

A good tip for keeping wasps away if you are having a barbeque or having a few drinks on the patio is to use a citronella candle on the table. Citronella repels wasps so you’ll have some peace.

Every summer was a nightmare. I'd have to run into the house the moment I'd see a wasp. I just couldn't relax. Then I came to see you and now I can enjoy barbeques and sitting outside in the garden on a hot day. It's changed my life.
