Birkenhead Wasp Nest Removal Treatments
Running across the occasional wasp in the garden is not unusual and doesn't necessarily require any action other than avoiding being stung. Coming across multiple wasps in or around the home, however, indicates that the yellow and black striped insects have built a nest nearby, which will need to be removed for the safety of everyone in the family. Many sources offer suggestions and DIY methods for doing this, but it is actually fairly difficult and somewhat dangerous for untrained individuals to attempt to do anything to a wasp nest. Professional wasp control is the simplest, fastest and safest way to handle a bee, hornet or wasp removal problem, and is surprisingly affordable.
Wasps have a powerful sting which can trigger severe allergies in susceptible individuals, sometimes requiring hospitalization for anaphylactic shock. Unlike the bee, which loses its stinger and dies when it attacks and is, therefore, less likely to attack, the wasp and its close relative the hornet have the ability to sting multiple times. Wasps live in larger groups than hornets and can afford to have some members of the colony guard the nest, making them more likely to spot a threat and more willing to attack it than the more solitary hornet would be. Wasps also respond to insecticide scents released by other injured wasps by becoming more aggressive, so swatting one wasp can cause more to attack.
Approaching close enough to apply a Birkenhead wasp nest removal treatment carries a significant risk of agitating the guard wasps enough to attack, so special protective clothing and good knowledge of wasp control techniques are essential to remove the nest safely. If the nest is in a place that can only be reached by crawling into a tight space or scaling a ladder, the risk becomes greater as the ability to quickly retreat without falling or getting stuck disappears. If the Birkenhead wasp nest removal treatment is a insecticide spray or powder, as most commercial products are, there is also a risk of accidental poisoning. Experts have the training and equipment they need to avoid these risks and get the job done promptly.
