Apex Pest Control, a pest control company based in Sheffield, UK, has announced that they have recently released a blog post that offers advice to people tackling a wasp nest in their property this summer. The article is titled “Do You Know the Best Pest Control Wasps Hate?” and discusses the best pest control for wasps. The article warns that attempting to remove the wasps nests can be dangerous and ineffective.
Tony Johnson, owner of Apex Pest Control, says, “Wasps are more than annoying flying pests in summer. They inflict stings, often when unprovoked, and they can attack when you least expect it, while walking to your car, talking outside with a friend, or signing for a package.”
He continues, “Their stings are quite painful, and can even trigger anaphylaxis (severe allergic reactions) in some individuals. If you have a wasp nest on your property, it’s time to call a wasp pest control company. Professional pest control specialists such as those at Apex can quickly, reliably and safely handle wasp nest removal.”
Tony Johnson also wants to point out that unlike bees, wasps are more aggressive and can often sting even when unprovoked. Also, unlike bees, wasps do not die after stinging once. Thus, they can inflict several stings on a person during a single attack. This is why it is not advisable for people to remove wasp nest themselves. Disturbing their nest can result in a large number of stings that can be medically concerning.
Furthermore, wasps do not only pose a danger to people but also to structures in the home or building. Wasps eat wood, which means they can be a danger to wooden structures. They can eat away at the wooden frames and support beams of a structure in lofts. Also, wasp nests that are located on finished surfaces, such as siding or soffit, can peel and erode paint, with the result that the underlying wood can rot.
Another problem with wasps nests is that they are often difficult to find, particularly those that are located between walls, balconies, and cramped spaces like the attic. Thus, it is advisable to look for certain signs that indicate a wasps nest is situated near the home or business. These include the presence of a large number of wasps gathered in just one area; the presence of wasps crawling into crevices on the exterior siding; and presence of small mounds or honeycomb structures that are made from paper-mache style material. It is also important to check attic corners, bird boxes, nearby trees, and garage corners for the presence of wasps.
When people find a nest without any live wasps, it may not be an active nest but it is always advisable to proceed with caution and let a professional pest control company do the removal. Wasps usually use their nests for a single season, so abandoned nests are quite common.
However, if there are wasps near the nest, it is likely that it is inhabited and people should call a reliable pest control company to remove the nest and not do it themselves. Trying to remove the wasps nest themselves can pose a danger not only to the person removing the nest but also to others nearby. There is the risk of stings and also from exposure to harmful pesticides.
Tony Johnson has more than 30 years of experience as a pest controller. He has experience in all areas of pest control, dealing with pests in homes, commercial businesses, deer stalking, and farming.
