WASPS ARE OFTEN SEEN AS MORE AGGRESSIVE THAN BEES AND THEY CAN CERTAINLY DELIVER A PAINFUL STING. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH A WASP INFESTATION OR NEST THEN IT’S IMPORTANT TO CALL THE SOUTHWEST’S BEST PEST CONTROL SERVICE.
Wasps don’t present much of a problem when there are just one or two of them. If you have an infestation with a nearby nest, however, things can be a lot more difficult. The two varieties we get most are the common wasp and the German wasp. Of course, the big issue is the potential for wasp stings. These are painful and can be dangerous if you happen to have an allergic reaction. Needless to say, if you discover a big nest near your home, you should avoid going near it and get a professional team in to remove it. Wasps can become very aggressive if they think their young in the nest are being attacked or they are feeding.
HOW TO SPOT A WASP INFESTATION
Wasps, like other similar insects, are more active during the warm months of summer. They are easily identifiable and you’ll find at least a few in most gardens at any one time. Unless you have a really troublesome infestation, it’s always best to leave these insects alone as they also play a useful role in the local ecology, particularly the pollinating of plants. You’ll notice a more serious problem when large numbers of wasps appear at once. These can often band together in swarms, increasing the chance of being stung if you happen to get too close. A wasp nest can be problematic for businesses, reducing customers who are worried about getting stung.
