Unlike most other domestic pests, wasps infestation can be easily spotted by the presence of the insects themselves. If there's a large number of wasps in your garden, that usually means that there's a vespine nest nearby. Wasps are seasonal insects – if it's the beginning of the summer, a nest will most likely be as big as a walnut, but it can quickly grow in size and reach the dimensions of a football. Such matured nests can contain thousands of individuals. Nests the size of a human being (and even bigger) are rare but not exceptional.
There are hundreds of wasp types around the world but only few of them are seen as a real pests. You may encounter several of them throughout the United Kingdom – the German wasp, the Common wasp, the Vespula rufa, and the European hornet. All these species posses an aggressive behaviour and attack without warning.
Many people confuse wasps and bees and call wasp extermination services for bee colonies and vice versa. Bees are generally less aggressive and unlike wasps, they can sting only once.
The easiest way to make the difference between the two subfamilies is to look at their appearance – bee colouring is more dull and their bodies appear to have hair that wasps lack. Also, the bodies of wasps are slender with a narrow waste that connects the two segments.
Bees are usually not considered pests due to their beneficial nature but can still pose a genuine threat to your family. If you have an unwanted bee nest at your property, you can book our bees control service.
If you have a wasp infestation, do not try to battle it yourself – call 24/7 Pest Control for a safe wasp nest removal. It is also a good idea to take measures against possible future infestations. Here are several advices about wasp prevention you can easily follow:
#1 Check for nests – check your home, garden, backyard or any other part of your property that has not been completely shut-in in the beginning of spring. Wasp prefer such locations to build their nests at. An early detection of a nest can save you a lot of trouble later on. Make sure you check your garage and barn as well.
#2 Keep your windows and doors shut – install nets if needed. Wasps are attracted to indoor locations where they look for food.
#3 Secure your bins – wasps are attracted by all types of rotting food. An opened bin can easily attract vespines that will scavenge your junk for a free meal. This can also lead to a booming population of stingers in your area.
#4 Should you notice a wasp nest, do not try to remove it by yourself. Wasps are easily agitated and once a wasp stings you, the insects quickly follow. Numerous stings can lead to serious health problems and death, even if you are not allergic to wasps.
