Wasps

Wasps are at their most active during the summer months in the UK. Many of us have suffered from the occasional sting from a wasp. It hurts a lot and some people who may be allergic can suffer terribly and even go into anaphylactic shock when stung. It is always advisable to let a professional pest controller deal with the problem.

Wasp Types UK

The main worry for us in the UK is the common wasp (Yellow Jacket) and the German wasp.Hornets a much larger species are also present throughout the UK.

Why Wasps Sting

By the time a wasp nest is established later in the summer, it may contain thousands upon thousands of wasps. If that nest was disturbed, they may become very defensive and attack in large numbers which could be very unpleasant for any person.In rare cases even fatal.Wasps are very defensive of their colonies, and if they feel threatened in any way, they can become very dangerous.The female wasps are the ones who will sting, and they may do so multiple times.

Nest Location – Common signs to look for if you suspect you have a wasp problem

You may see scores of wasps entering your property, sometimes under the eaves and gutters of the roof or a small gap/crack under a window or a ventilation brick, etc. They may then be building a nest inside the cavities of the house building etc. You may often find them in the roof space, under the tiles, under beams, etc. in bird boxes sheds garages. Sometimes at ground level and below and often high up and out of reach without ladders.

One of the easiest ways to locate a nest is to watch the wasps on their return flight path’s and see where they’re going. Naturally, this becomes a lot easier later in the summer as numbers increase.

Wasp Treatment Pest Control

Wasps nests are best dealt with earlier in the summer if possible.

DIY treatments are not recommended once a nest has become established.

If the nest is accessible to the pest control officer it will be a simple matter of treating it with professional grade insecticides that do not cause the wasps to become excited and overly aggressive. This can be done within 30 to 45 minutes if access to the nest is possible.

  • As a general rule of thumb, the nest will not be removed at this point in time or any later time as once the nest has been treated all occupants will be destroyed.
  • This can take up to 48 hours to be completely clear of any returning foraging wasps.
  • If the customer does want the nest removing this can be arranged to be done at a later time a few days later, this would obviously incur extra costs and it’s not really necessary other than for your own peace of mind because once the nest is dead it usually remains that way.
  • If for any reason the Wasps are still present after 5 to 7 days we will return and re-treat the site as part of our guarantee.

South Yorkshire pest control does not treat honey bees or any other type of bees unless for some reason they may be a threat to human health.
Honeybees are a protected species and if you suspect you have honeybees on your property the first port of call is a beekeeper who will put you in touch with the beekeepers association.

It is sometimes quite easy to confuse a Wasp with the Honeybee so it’s always best to get expert advice on the subject before attempting any kind of treatment etc.
