Important information about wasp control in Hertfordshire

Wasps are some of nature’s toughest predators. In Britain there are three species. These are the common, German and Tree wasp. The differences between these pests are mostly superficial. That being said, the tree wasp builds a bigger and tougher nest. They are also harder to get rid of.

If you see wasp it does not necessarily mean you have a nest and need to call Pest Exterminators Herts. Usually you need to have prolonged contact with these insects to the point where they become a problem.

If you continually see wasps flying around then yes, you probably have a nest nearby. There are many reasons why there could be a nest on your property. The most obvious is the easy availability of food. This can include open bins, pet or animal food and also piles of compost.

Getting started with wasp control on your property

Once wasps have found a convenient source of food they will build a nest nearby. When this happens, they begin to enter your home more and more often. This will either be through open doors and windows or cracks in the walls.

If wasps find your home particularly comfortable they may even build a nest inside. This sometimes happens in attics and ceilings.

Wasps can also build their nests beneath the floorboards, or in wall cavities. One place they are especially fond of is the space under the eaves of your roof.

If you’re certain there is a wasp nest on your property then what should you do? The best course of action is to contact Pest Exterminators Herts. We can solve this problem in a jiffy.

Some people choose to implement DIY techniques. They do stupid things like knocking the nest down, or using either fire or water. This is an extremely bad idea because it won’t get rid of the wasps. They will simply rebuild the nest. In addition to this, interfering with their nest makes wasps extremely unhappy. In this case they may swarm and begin to sting you.

Straightforward Hertfordshire wasp control

What you probably don’t know is that wasps are not like bees. They do not sting once and then die. No, wasps have the ability to sting you as many times as they want. Not only is this extremely painful but you may be allergic to them. The biggest problem when it comes to wasps is that most people don’t know if they are allergic.

People sometimes only find out once they are stung! This means that getting stung can have serious consequences such as hospitalisation and even death.

Rather than knocking the nest down, here are some better alternatives. Start by limiting their ability to get at food waste. Do not leave your dustbins open. Seal them tightly and buy bins with lids. There are also certain herbs which repel wasps such as Spearmint, Thyme and Eucalyptus. You may want to plant these around your garden. Finally, citronella candles are known to be somewhat effective in repelling wasps.

You will be far better off with Pest Exterminators Herts. While the above techniques may work they will not get rid of the actual nest. Until the nest is gone you will always have wasps.
