Professional Wigan Wasp Nest Removal Treatments
The danger of using a DIY Wigan wasp nest removal treatment
Using a DIY wasp removal treatment is not advised for homeowners who are trying to eliminate a wasp infestation. One of the reasons that this type of wasp is so dangerous is because they are able to mobilize the entire nest in order to defend itself. When an intruder is detected an attack pheromone is released which mobilizes all of the worker wasps.
Eliminating a wasp nest is more dangerous than many people realize. When a wasp nest is approached or disturbed the wasps inside will typically become aggressive. In response, wasps will sting the intruder in order to defend the nest and the young wasps inside. Wasp stings can be very painful and wasp allergies are common among humans. To remove the wasp nest safely and completely you should hire a Wigan wasp control specialist who will apply a Wigan wasp nest removal treatment.
The most commonly encountered wasps in the UK
In the UK the most commonly encountered wasp is the hornet. The hornet wasp is the largest of the social wasps and can measure up to 5.5 cm in length. The hornet has a sting which can be used to kill its prey and to defend the hive. This sting is more painful than most other commonly encountered wasps. This is because it contains a high amount of acetylcholine. In addition, this type of wasp can sting intruders multiple times. The wasp is able to do this because the stinger is not barbed and so will not come out from their bodies when used.
How to identify a wasp infestation
Wasps prefer to hide the nest in covered locations. This means that you will commonly find wasp nests in places such as garden sheds, underneath the eaves, hollowed tree trunks and are crooks and crevices around your property. These wasp nests will be constructed from wood pulp and will reach its peak size in late summer. It is also during late summer that the wasp workers will be most aggressive and likely to swarm to defend the hive. The sooner lost the nest can be eliminated the safer the property will be for you and your family. If you have identified a wasp nest you need to contact either at your local council or a Wigan wasp control service. A Wigan control service has the experience, skills and equipment to fully eliminate the wasp infestation and nest.
