Wasp infestations usually go through several different stages over the course of an infestation, usually maintaining a low profile in the early weeks as they build up their hive, preying on garden pests like aphids and feeding the wasp larvae back in the hive. Soon, however, the hive will have grown from a few inches to over a foot or more, and will be producing more and more wasps every day at a rate of hundreds.
At this point of the infestation, when the hive is running at peak capacity, the wasps will have begun eating fruit or human food and food waste, and this changing diet also serves to make them more aggressive and more assertive of their territory. With their large numbers and their strong protective instinct, these wasps will attack anyone or anything nearby with only the slightest provocation, and large stinging frenzies can form with little apparent warning.
Most of the calls for extermination come during this peak season, usually in the warmest months of the year, and many customers have either been unaware before that point that their property was infested, or assumed that the wasps' apparently peaceful behaviour would last. If allowed to grow to full size, a single hive can prove an extreme nuisance and even a danger to a property's inhabitants, as their attacks grow in frequency and severity.
Since wasp nests are such an invasive and disruptive presence, we always prefer to have our technicians deal with infestations as soon as possible. For this reason, we don't go for time-consuming procedures or purely preventative measures, but instead we opt to deal with the hive itself directly.
Our team will identify the nest before spraying it with an insecticidal Bendiocarb compound, delivered in the form of a talcum-powder-like dust, that will fill up the inside of the hive and make it impossible for the wasps to occupy. Those wasps that are touched by the powder will take several hours to die, but will be generally incapacitated in that time, while any other wasps may take slightly longer, although they too will pose no real threat, as without the hive they are unable to co-ordinate their actions, and they soon die of exposure.
