Being stung by a wasp or bee is a painful experience and can be life threatening to anyone who may be allergic to stings. However, it is possible to reduce these risks by taking sensible precautions when outdoors and ensuring that wasp or bee nests are properly managed.
Only female wasps have a sting which they can use repeatedly, if they feel under threat. In most cases a wasp sting causes no long term harm, but it can be life threatening if you are allergic to stings. Treating a wasp nest is often the most efficient way to control a wasp problem and reduce the threat of stings.
Wasps can build nests outdoors under eaves or, if they can gain access, they can find sheltered areas inside your home, such as wall cavities, roof spaces and attics. If a nest is discovered you shouldn’t attempt to get rid of it yourself.
It is possible to confuse wasps with bees. However the treatment available for a wasp nest and a bee hive differ.
Bees are an endangered species and a bees nest will only be removed if it poses a significant threat to nearby people. Aerobeam Professional Pest Management will only treat a bees nest as a last resort and with honey bees, only after contacting a qualified bee keeper.
Treatments for a wasp nest are far more common and can be carried out professionally, quickly and safely, by Aerobeam Professional Pest Management.
Removing a wasp nest can be very dangerous. Wasps inside the nest will feel threatened and often become aggressive. This could cause them to sting you and others as they defend their nest and young. To get rid of wasps you do 'not' need to remove the nest, but you do need to treat it and the nesting wasps.
To reduce the risk of stings to you and your family, arrange for a professional wasp nest treatment. This effective solution will eliminate the wasps and keep you safe from the threat of stings.
