TIME TO GIVE US A BUZZ IF YOU’VE GOT WASPS!
GOT WASPS? WE’VE GOT IT COVERED!!
The wasp season is well and truly underway and set to continue with throughout the next few months. The Hereford Times reported last week the very sad news of the death of a Tenbury Wells resident who suffered anaphylactic shock following a wasp sting. This story, whilst thankfully rare, highlights how dangerous wasps can be.
And just this week, we received a call from a customer who attempted to treat a wasp nest himself and was pursued by an extremely angry swarm of wasps! He told us he won’t be making that mistake twice!
It’s important not to panic or worry though because the stories we’ve reported on above are rare. In fact, wasps will only usually attack people if they feel they are threatened. So, if you leave a wasp alone, chances are that they will also give you a wide berth too!
But if you do scare a wasp be aware that it might call for backup – wasps in distress emit a pheromone that colony members nearby will pick up and defensive wasps start a stinging frenzy.
PGM & SON PEST CONTROL HEREFORD ARE WASP CONTROL EXPERTS
Treating a wasp nest can be extremely dangerous and that’s why you need to call in the professional pest controllers. Pest controllers have access to solutions not available to the general public. Plus, we’re fully trained and qualified. We wear protective clothing and we know our pests!
Wasps aren’t all bad though. They can be beneficial in gardens as they feed their grubs on caterpillars and other insects. They act as a natural predator.
Wasp nests come in all shapes and sizes and in all places – we’ve seen some in some surprising places, for example, in a BBQ – not a great place to have a wasp nest. They’ve also been found in toilet cisterns and brass instruments.
Wasp nests start off quite small but can grow to very large sizes during summer and they can contain thousands of wasps. The earlier a wasp nest is treated, the less aggressive the colony will be. DIY products rarely work on wasp nests, particularly large established nests.
