COMMERCIAL AND DOMESTIC WASP CONTROL
WASP NEST REMOVAL
In spring, queen wasps can return from winter hibernation and start building new nests, marking the opening of the wasp season. If you see wasp nests forming near your home or business building, you could understandably be concerned – especially as female wasps can inflict painful stings.
From May to November, the strong presence of wasps can pose various problems. However, if a wasp nest is within uncomfortable proximity to your residence or corporate base in County Durham, we can control the wasp population and eradicate the nest.
How To Identify A Wasp
Differentiating Between Wasps and Bees
While wasps have visibly slim waists, the waist of a bee is as wide as its body.
Wasps are usually hairless, whereas bees need more hair for help in carrying pollen.
How are bees connected to wasps?
Bees and wasps are both members of the insect order called Hymenoptera, which also includes ants and sawflies. Wasps often attempt to steal bee larvae to feed to their offspring, but bees will not consume either wasps or their larvae.
Which settings do wasps favour for their nests?
Though this can differ between wasp types, wasp nests are often found in the ground or compost heaps or hanging from structures like a building branch or fascia.
Why are wasps so disliked?
One possible reason is female wasps' ability to sting - and, unlike bees, wasps are capable of using their stinger repeatedly. This could somewhat explain bees' cuddlier image compared to wasps.
What happens to wasps in winter?
If a whole community of wasps has gathered in a nest, those wasps will often die in winter, but queens instead hibernate by sheltering in places like wall crevices or garden sheds. Nonetheless, it might not be practically palatable for you to wait until winter for wasps to be removed.
