How To Perform a Heswall Wasp Nest Removal Treatment
Most people are aware of the dangers that wasps pose. The common wasp in the UK is able to sting multiple times and is particularly aggressive during late summer.
Should you remove the hive?
In some cases, the wasp nest will not be able to be removed. In this case, it will be necessary to apply a Heswall wasp nest removal treatment in order to destroy the colony. Once the colony has been destroyed it will never be used by wasps again. This is why it is possible to leave a nest treated with insecticides in place without having to worry about subsequent wasp infestations.
Wasps only have a one-year life cycle. When winter comes the Queen and the worker wasps die out. A new Queen will hibernate over winter and then emerge to build a new nest in spring the next year. The new Queen will always create a new nest using plant material and wood pulp. A wasp control specialist will be able to remove the dormant nest if you would prefer but it is perfectly safe to keep it in place once the Heswall wasp nest removal treatment has been applied.
How to differentiate between bees and wasps
While both bees and wasps can sting, only wasps are a real threat to your family and pets. Wasps are aggressive and territorial and can sting multiple times. Bees, in contrast, serve an important role as pollinators and won't sting unless there is no other choice. When the bee stings someone the sting detaches from the body and kills them.
Bees will usually huddle in a group in the garden area. In contrast, if you are faced with a hornet or wasp then they will be grouped around their hive. If you're not sure if it is a hornet or wasp hive observe it for a short period of time. If it is a hornet or wasp nest then you will notice these insects entering exiting the nest.
Trying to eliminate a wasp nest by yourself can be both dangerous and difficult. Make sure that you bring in a professional wasp control specialist to completely eliminate the colony and hive from your property.
