The thought of having 10,000 wasps living on your doorstep is a terrifying prospect. But should wasps choose to make their nest on your property this is the reality some homeowners could face.
Wasps can make their nests in a number of areas around the home such as cavity walls, lofts, garden sheds and garages.
Starting off small, the queen wasp will soon set to work stripping wood and repurposing it to enlarge her kingdom. These nests can grow to the size of a football – if not larger – accommodating thousands of wasps.
Throughout the summer the number of wasps continues to grow as well as the nest, which is built up by worker wasps which take over from the queen while she concentrates on laying hundreds of eggs every day.
The presence of just one wasp is enough to send some people in to a panic, but what would you do faced with thousands of them? The first thing is keep calm and call for help.
Why do wasps’ nests pose a danger?
Pest control options can take the sting out of your wasp’s nest problem quickly and efficiently by taking a few simple measures, so don’t live in fear of a menace on your doorstep, take action today.
As a rule wasps only sting when they feel threatened, the problem is when they do feel under attack they release a chemical that alerts other wasps to the danger, which then join the attack.
Disturbing a wasps’ nest is particularly hazardous as it will release multitudes of angry wasps. Wasps can sting multiple times and being stung by more than one is certainly an unpleasant experience, the most worrying factor though is the possibility of anaphylaxis from a wasp sting.
