Useful Information About Wasps in Summer

Author: Hampshire Bird & Pest Solutions

As we begin to approach the summer peak, Queen Wasps slowly start to emerge. Throughout the Winter season Queen Wasps hide, as soon as summer arrives, they have one goal, and that is to reproduce and reproduce in vast numbers. For most people Wasps don't cause a huge problem, until they build nests in and around your property or workplace.

Signs of Wasp Nests

You'll normally notice the entrance of a Wasp's nest rather than the nest itself as Nests are built in dark concealed areas. Check out our list below for signs of a Wasp's nest.

  1. Large numbers of Wasps swarming around your property is usually a sign that there's a nest nearby.
  2. Wasps continually causing a nuisance in the garden.
  3. Wasps swarming around your roof is usually a good indication that there's a nest present.
  4. Wasps inside your home is normally a good sign of a nest within the building.

About Wasps

Wasps cause not only a nuisance, but a health risk if removal is attempted by someone who isn't trained to deal with them. One of the reasons you should deal with a wasp infestation as soon as possible is because they are very aggressive. If you even come close to their nest you can expect hundreds upon hundreds of worker wasps rush towards you in order to defend their Queen. This is frightening experience for anyone unprepared. Wasp's nests hold anywhere between 5,000 and 10,000 Wasps, they reproduce very quickly. Wasps can create health issues for people of all ages as their stings can bring on allergic reactions. Not only are there health risks, but a risk of structural damage to your property from the wasps gaining entry.

Tips to Avoid Wasps

  1. Try not to leave food in the garden, Wasps will find food left outside, return to their nest and come to collect the food with many more Wasps!
  2. Seal any structural gaps in your home or building, Wasps will find their way into the smallest of holes.
