More information on Wasp Nests and Wasp Nest Removals
1 - NOTICING A WASPS NEST If you notice a wasps nest on your property which is causing a nuisance, the first thing to do it call a qualified wasps nest removal company like ourselves, if the wasps nest is somewhere near an entrance to the property then try and stay away from that entrance and use another entrance and exit until we can arrive to remove the wasps nest. Also, you need to think about if you have an allergy to wasps or if anyone in the home or business has an allergy to wasp stings. Do not try to tackle a wasps nest yourself if you have had no experience in this before. Although wasp nests themselves are relatively safe, if you disturb a swarm this can prove to be extremely serious, especially to those who have allergies to wasps.
2- WHAT IS A WASP NEST? Wasps will often build their colonies in nests within buildings, usually the Queen wasp will construct her colony in soil banks, roof spaces, cavities, trees and other bush and scrublands. Basically if the condition is right for the colony to thrive, it will be exploited by the colony. However, most wasps nests are frequently associated with domestic and residential housing and can cause havoc when they nest around your home.
3- DOES A WASP NEST RETURN? There is evidence to suggest that a wasps nest can return to the same place the following year, however, if the wasps nest is treated properly and the nucleus of the wasps nest is destroyed then the likelihood is very minimal. If they do return it will be a totally new colony. Make sure you call us to understand in more detail about destroying the wasps nest and making sure the wasps do not return to the same place. Please note that it is unnecessary for us to physically remove the wasp nest and potentially very risky for our team to do so. 'Removal' in this case means the destruction of the wasp nest so it ceases to be active.
4 - WHAT TO DO IF YOU GET STUNG BY A WASP When you get stung by a wasp, you will feel the sting and it will feel uncomfortable, you may even experience a slight swelling where the wasp sting has occurred.
Make sure you cool the area with an ice pack or something cold from the freezer, apply some sting cream, usually savlon or some other antibacterial cream will clean the wasp sting. After this, make sure you cover the wasp sting with a plaster and then leave for 24 to 48 hours.
