Wasps are an everyday occurrence during the warmer months. They are on a constant hunt for food but shouldn’t be confused with their less aggressive relations; the bees. Wasps are aggressive and will sting as a means of protecting their nests: that’s why you need Wasp Pest Control. A wasp sting can be dangerous inducing anaphylactic shock in some extreme cases. For most people, it is just a painful sting.
But no-one wants to be stung. Beer Gardens, outdoor eating and seating areas, domestic gardens, parks and leisure areas all have the potential to harbour wasp nests. Wasps are on the lookout for sheltered nooks and crannies to start building a nest and once started will quickly grow and multiply. That’s when you’ll start to notice that you have a problem with an increase in activity.
Wood shavings and rotting wood are perfect for wasps to build a nest. They chew the wood to produce the paper looking construction. In fact, it can very quickly grow to become bigger than a football.
