Important Information

Except for the polar regions, wasps can be found on every continent.

The sting is toxic and can cause swelling. If a person is allergic to a sting, it is possible that they will require medical treatment.

Because their stinger is smoother than that of a bee, they can sting repeatedly, unlike honeybees.

When they die, they release a pheromone into the air to warn other wasps within the nest that it is under attack.

They are significantly smaller than hornets.

Only females have the ability to sting repeatedly.

 

Wasp Types In The United Kingdom

How many different kinds of wasps are there?

In the United Kingdom, there are approximately 9,000 different species of wasps. These include parasitic wasps, some of which are so small that they can only be seen with a microscope. There are 250 of these larger wasps with stingers. Only nine of these are social wasps that build large nests; the rest are solitary and do not bother humans.

The Common wasp (Vespula vulgaris) is found in almost every habitat in the UK, including woodland and urban areas. In the Midlands, they are known as jaspers, possibly derived from the Latin word for wasp, vespa, or from their resemblance to the striped mineral jasper.

Most people can identify them as the most common wasp in the UK. Adult workers (always females) are 12-17mm long, while the queen is around 20mm long. The iconic black and yellow stripes warn other animals that these insects are dangerous. The Common wasp, like the German wasp, has an abdomen divided into six segments, each with one black/yellow stripe (Vespula germanica). Common wasps lack the three black dots on the head and distinct black dots on the back, which merge with the back stripes.

 

How to Check for a Nest in your home or business

 

If you notice an infestation near your home or office growing by the day, there is almost certainly a nest on your property.

Because it is made of wood pulp and their saliva, a nest resembles a papery wall. Some common places to look for a nest are in a building’s wall cavity, on the roof of the building, in your home sheds and garages, under your home’s building, in the parking lot of your business building, or in bird boxes.

If, after inspecting the building area, you are still unable to locate a nest, you can follow the return path of a wasp and see where it goes; this will eventually lead you to the nest. Because of the increased number and the fact that they die during the winter, it is easier to inspect for a nest in the summer or spring.

The nest inspected can be as small as a golf ball or as large as a football, or even larger. It is recommended that you have the nest treated as soon as you notice it, before they multiply and become aggressive.

Attempting to remove or inspect for a nest on your own is extremely dangerous because the wasps inside will feel threatened and may attack by stinging you or a loved one.

 

To avoid this situation, professional nest control and removal experts must be hired to treat the nest. To eliminate the nest, treat it with a  rather than removing it.

To keep insects out, keep doors and windows closed or use mesh barriers.

Check for nests on a regular basis at the start of summer to prevent an infestation from spreading.

Learn How to Get Rid of Nests the Correct Way

 

Removal of Wasp Nests in Swindon

 

Most people try to get rid of nests by burning them, flooding them with water, or hitting them with a baseball bat. It is critical that you understand that using such methods will not eliminate the infestation, but will instead increase your chances of being attacked and stung by wasps, as well as the possibility of causing damage to your building’s property. There’s also a chance you’ll get stung before you even start hitting it with a baseball bat.

For all of these reasons, it is critical to hire a control and removal expert to carry out an effective control and removal treatment service in order to protect your family and your property. The following are the reasons for the removal service’s success:

The technician has access to protective gear and respiratory protection equipment, which helps to secure and protect them from any stings while inspecting your building.

The technician has prior experience working in small spaces such as your loft or beneath your home, allowing them to thoroughly examine and treat the nest with the service.

Our technicians are knowledgeable about a variety of species, how to accurately inspect the building, how to effectively conduct the service, how to inspect an allergic reaction to a sting, and how to choose the best control and removal treatment service.

 

How Can You Avoid Being Stung?

You can avoid getting stung if you follow these guidelines:

Sting of a Wasp

When inspecting for wasps, do not panic; instead, remain calm and move away slowly.

Screaming, flapping your arms around, or attempting to swat them will agitate and provoke them.

Hairsprays, perfumes, and shampoos with strong or sweet-smelling scents should be avoided.

Wearing floral-patterned clothing or bags, as well as brightly coloured clothing, may attract them.

Secure your business building’s bins and avoid having any soft fruit plants lying around your home or building because they may attract hungry insects.

Avoid drinking outside or leaving open drinks unattended because an insect may crawl inside.

Make sure your children’s hands and bodies are free of any food or drink residue, as this could attract insects.

When you’re outside, always keep your food and drinks covered.

 

What Is the Best Way to Treat a Sting?

To treat a sting, first scrape the stinger from the skin’s surface with the edge of a credit card. Warm water and soap were used to clean the area. You could also apply and remove an ice pack every 10 minutes for an hour, or take a pain reliever or antihistamine to reduce the pain or swelling.

 

Another method for treating a sting is to apply a soaked cotton ball of apple cider vinegar or lemon juice to the sting, or to apply a slice of lemon to the sting.
