What will I find in a wasps nest now?

Anything alive/stingy? Should I remove the nest myself? It's in the loft, it was active last summer.

Thanks

I think it will be empty. Is it a little paper like one?

I just brush / poke them off and throw it out. It has happened a good few times to me, the perils of living in the sticks!
Maybe watch it for 10 mins to make sure it is empty.

Yes it's papery. I'm a bit of a wimp though blush

knock it into a bucket of water and have cover, just in case.

How big?

Like a large golf ball. That is a Queen cell. Maybe a Queen still in but with spring on us she may have gone already or just an old one abandoned years ago. The golf ball sized ones often found hanging high in rafter in an attic roof where Queens over winter.

If it is much larger it will be an old wasp nest. Nothing inside.
