Wasps

Wasps can be a nuisance during warmer weather in the spring and summer months. They have a potent sting and can attack in large numbers if disturbed or threatened. If stung the sting left in situ is irritating and in some cases will cause medical issues.

If you are experiencing high numbers of wasps in your home or garden it is likely that there is a nest nearby. If the location of a nest is likely to put people at risk, then it should be treated immediately by a professional pest controller.

If you have a problem with wasps, we can help.
