Expert Westhoughton Wasp Nest Removal Treatments

The hornet wasp is one of the most aggressive wasps encountered in Europe. The largest of the hornet wasps measure up to 5.5 cm. While the hornet wasp usually pays on caterpillars and infects, they can also be a serious danger to larger animals and pets.

The sting of this wasp is high in acetylcholine, which makes it very painful for humans when stung. Both animals and small children may go into shock if stung multiple times or attacked en masse. Being swarmed by wasps is a particular danger because they are able to communicate using pheromones. This allows them to attack as a group rather than as individuals. The best way to avoid the danger is to be able to identify a wasp nest and then to hire the services of a professional Westhoughton wasp nest removal service to remove the infestation.
