WASPS

  • No treatment for masonry bees that are often found in soft soil in banks, gardens and beneath hedges 

  • Being stung by a wasp or bee can be very painful, and for some, can be life-threatening if you are allergic to stings.  However, you are able to reduce these risks by taking sensible precautions when outdoors to ensure that wasp or bee nests are properly managed.

  • Wasps are often mistaken for bees and are also confused with other stinging insects.  They are also notorious for building their nests in places where people like to gather, like around your decking, in the eaves of your house, but they can also go undisturbed in attics and lofts until they are discovered in the spring.

  • Queen wasps emerge from hibernation in Springtime, when the days lengthen and the weather warms to start building a wasp nest, with more worker wasps hatching as the Summer progresses. Wasps are most active in the warmer summer months. In the UK, the Common Wasp and German Wasp cause the most annoyance and painful stings. Even with their distinctive yellow and black body, they can still be confused with hornets.

  • It's only female wasps who have a sting which they can use repeatedly if they feel under threat. In most cases, a wasp sting causes no long term harm, but it can be life-threatening if you are allergic to stings. Treating a wasp nest is often the most efficient way to control a wasp problem and reduce the threat of being stung. 

Wasps can build their nests outdoors under sheltered eaves or, if they can gain access, wasps will find sheltered areas inside your home, such as:

  • Wall cavities

  • Roof spaces

  • Attics & lofts

  • Internal garages

  • Wasps can also very social creatures and will build colonies based on how well they mate.  Since the purpose of a wasps life is to mate and/or create offspring, unmated wasps will eventually die off.  Any unmated wasps, whether male or female, will perish around late summer, effectively dying of loneliness.
