Bees, Wasps and Hornets
Being stung by a wasp (yellow jacket), hornet or bee is a painful experience and can be life threatening to anyone who may be allergic to stings. However, it is possible to reduce these risks by taking sensible precautions when outdoors and ensuring that wasp nests or bee hives are properly managed.
Take care when dealing with wasps and hornets (a larger member of the wasp family) - they have a potent sting and can attack in large numbers if disturbed.
A wasp trapped indoors can be dealt with using a Wasp & Fly Killer spray.
If you are experiencing high numbers of wasps in your home or garden it is likely that there is a wasp nest nearby. A single nest may contain thousands of wasps which can swarm and attack if disturbed. If the location of a wasp nest is likely to put people at risk, then the nest should be destroyed.
The nest is made from chewed wood that gives them their distinctive papery walls. A queen wasp will start to build a nest in the spring but then as workers hatch they take over nest building.
A typical wasp nest will be 30cm across although they can be much larger. Common sites for a wasp nest include under the roof eaves, in lofts or in sheds and out-buildings.
Using a professional bee, wasp and hornet control service is the most effective way to remediate them from your property.
