Getting rid of a wasp infestation is vital to the well being and safety of your family.  As well being aggressive in nature, their painful stings can cause an anaphylactic reaction that is potentially deadly.

A typical nest may contain thousands of wasps, which can become dangerous if disturbed. Wasps will form nests in soil banks, roof spaces, wall cavities, sheds and trees. In 2010, a mammoth nest, measuring 6ft by 5ft and containing half a million wasps, was discovered in the attic of a pub in Southampton.

There are over 200,000 species, although the most familiar is the common wasp (Vespula vulgaris) which is recognisable by its yellow and black colourings, two pairs of wings and a noticeably thin ‘wasp-waist’.

Wasps and wasp nests are usually a particular nuisance in late summer, when larval rearing is reduced and the workers search for sweet substances. Picnics and alfresco dining can be ruined by their presence. The long, warm summers of recent years have led to a rise in the wasp population and they are now a common pest, even into autumn.

Unlike bees, wasps will sting more than once, releasing a venom which to attacks the nervous system. It’s designed to both cause enough pain to ward off predators, and paralyse the smaller insects they prey on so they can more easily be transported back to the nest. Wasps are aggressive and may sting even if unprovoked.

To locate or get rid of a wasp nest, it’s always wise to seek professional help. This ensures the problem is fully eradicated and helps avoid re-infestation. Contact your local branch or call to speak to one of our expert pest control technicians.
