Unlike some other insect pests, wasps and bees do not directly prey on or scavenge from humans or spread infectious diseases. However, they can still pose a serious threat if a colony chooses to build their nest too close to a residence or business.
In particular, Common Wasp (vespula vulgaris) nests can cause serious problems. Wasps live in wood pulp nests centered around a queen, located in a secluded corner such as the space between wooden supports. They are typically attracted to and feed on fruit or other sugary substances (such as ice cream). A large mature, late-summer wasp nest can contain up to 5000 wasps living together in close proximity. It should be straightforward to tell if you have a swollen nest on your premises by the sheer number of wasps present.
If left untreated, the resulting defensive wasp swarm can easily block access to an outbuilding or garage, as well as pose a risk to humans. If the wasps believe that their nest or young are being attacked, they may go into a painful, venomous stinging frenzy. Wasp stings most often result in painful swelling and itching, which can be dangerous or scary to young children in particular. In rare cases, wasp stings may also result in a life-threatening allergic reaction called anaphylaxis.
The safest way to deal with a problematic wasp nest is to make use of our wasp nest removal service. The sooner the wasp nest is identified, the better. A spring removal will mean that the nest is not established and will be much easier to deal with. Once the nest is removed, the wider colony will be disrupted, as they can no longer function as a hive without their base. Once removed, the nest is flooded with a localised fumigating poison to kill off any surviving wasps.
It is also worth noting that bees should be treated very differently to wasps. Honey Bees are now a protected (and endangered) species, under UK law. It is a criminal offence to exterminate bees or destroy a hive (or to have someone do this for you on your property) without formal permission.
Lethal pest control will only be performed on bees as a last resort, if there is absolutely no other way to remove your hive to a safer location. Ideally you should contact a specialist beekeeper, who can offer professional hive removal services.
