The various social wasps living in Manchester are adapted to live in natural shelters such as animal burrows and tree hollows, making human habitations appealing locations to establish their colonies. Whether it is a garden shed, a garage, a loft or a spare bedroom, all it takes is a solitary queen to gain entrance to the area in the Spring for a large and dangerous nest to be established by late Summer.

The nuisance of wasps on a property.

From an early age, most humans learn to fear wasps due to being stung, which can elicit a panicked reaction when harassed by the insects outdoors or when one enters a room they are in. Wasps tend to be at their most aggressive as Summer turns to Autumn, and the workers are abandoning their colonies, which makes wasp stings even greater. Therefore, it is advisable to hire pest control services to perform wasp nest removal treatment before the situation gets out of hand.

Why is it necessary to hire wasp control services?

Although it might be tempting for persons lacking the relevant pest control training or equipment to try and remove wasp nests themselves, an amateurish approach to removing wasp colonies could end with a trip to the hospital or worse. Wasp nest removal treatment should only be performed by trained professionals who possess the necessary equipment and relevant experience for a safe and effective pest control procedure. A wasp control technician’s professional approach to the situation ensures a successful eradication of the wasp colony with minimal threat to themselves and others.

Why are wasp stings dangerous?

Unlike bees that can only use their stingers once, wasps are capable of stinging their victims multiple times, resulting in a high dose of venom when several wasps are involved in the attack. Wasp venom comprises different chemicals that damage living tissue when injected into the epidermal layers and can induce an adverse immunological response. Previous exposure to the toxin may result in severe that get worse with each sting and prove fatal. Wasp control technicians have the correct protective clothing to avoid getting stung, so non-professionals do not need to put themselves in harm’s way.
