Typically a wasp infestation will centre around a single hive, containing anything from a few hundred to tens of thousands of wasps, depending on the time of year. However, our technicians have found multiple nests on a single property, sometimes as many as five, each of them containing a large population of potentially aggressive insects.
Unlike other insects, it is hard to keep wasps away from a property by conventional means such as properly disposing of waste and maintaining a dry atmosphere, and a property that has never suffered any insect infestation before can easily become the victim of a wasp hive with little warning.
Wasps are not always aggressive towards humans, or any animal for that manner, but they are fiercely defensive when they feel that their hive is under threat, and will sting indiscriminately in huge numbers if one of their members is killed, if the structure of their hive is damaged, or even if someone simply gets too close. This can be dangerous, even potentially lethal, for allergy sufferers, but even for those who suffer no reaction to wasp stings, it is always an incredibly painful experience, and often large enough quantities of stings can cause some swelling and lasting irritation that is usually less pronounced with individual stings.
Before undertaking an extermination, our technicians will track down the hive or hives responsible for the infestation, taking careful note of its dimensions and roughly calculating the population inside. It is vital to make sure that the treatment will eliminate the wasps in one go, so as to limit any aggressive response the insects may try to make.
Once they have established the nature of the infestation, our technicians will apply a professional-grade insecticidal Bendiocarb treatment to the hive, a pressurised dust that is deadly to the wasps. The dust will rapidly affect the inhabitants of the hive, although they will not die for a matter of hours.
Any wasps foraging outside the hive will receive a chemical signal that their nest is under threat, but they will be unable to form an aggressive counter-attack, as by the time they reach their hive, the queen and the nerve-centre of the swarm will have been knocked out, leaving them confused, and eventually leading to their death.
