Wasps are by far the most common pest across in the UK. Many people are scared of wasps as they do not want to get stung, and unlike bees, wasps can often sting as part of the defence of the nest and will sting repeatedly. Wasp venom contains a pheromone which acts as an alarm causing other wasps to become more aggressive when a wasp has either stung something or has been killed. This is why it is always advisable not to try and remove the nest yourself, but to contact Deadline Pest Control instead
Wasp stings are generally harmless, and other than the pain, nothing will come of it. A small percentage of people, however, are allergic or hypersensitive to wasp venom and can have a severe reaction.
Wasps generally nest in trees or foliage but may nest in roof spaces if they have a way in.
If you suspect that you might have an infestation then it is always useful to try and identify where the nest is. Although it is highly inadvisable to tackle the nest yourself, it is helpful for pest controllers to know the location of the nest when they arrive at your property. If you can’t find the nest itself then look for the entrance, this will usually be a whole in the brickwork or roofing and wasps will often be coming and going throughout the day.
