European Wasps Pest Control Services Sydney
European wasps are fairly common in the Eastern states of the country but they’re considered exotic pests that can disrupt the natural wildlife and habitat in Western states. These wasps are transported from one corner of the country to another accidently through trucks, cars, and other such mediums. The local authorities have some regulations when it comes to dealing with these wasps.
At Knock-Down Pest Control, we’re familiar with these regulations and make sure the wasps are removed safely from your property.
What do you need to know?
Wasp bites are as painful as bee stings and they can trigger serious allergies in sensitive people. If you’re stung by a wasp, it’s a good idea to visit your doctor immediately and receive treatment for the bite before you attempt to deal with the wasp infestation. Here’s what you need to know:
Get A Professional
Don’t attempt to remove the wasp nest yourself as that can agitate the wasps. If you don’t have adequate protection and aren’t familiar with the best removal techniques, you can place your health at risk.
More Than One
If you experience a high level of wasp activity in your backyard or garden, you might have a wasp nest nearby. A single nest can contain several thousand wasps at a time, especially during the summer.
The wasp nest will have distinct paper-like walls. The nest is made from chewed wood and wasp saliva and is often located in wall cavities, under bird boxes, in shed and garages, under roof cavities, etc. The nests are usually easy to access as well, which can tempt you to remove them but that’s never a good idea.
Don’t Wait Too Long
The nest will be very small in the spring months but it can quickly grow to the size of a football in the summer months. We recommend removing the nest in the spring or earlier instead of waiting for it to develop.
Wasps & Bees
Wasps and bees aren’t the same kind of insects and bees are usually protected because they’re an endangered species. If you need to remove a bee nest, you need to call a qualified bee keeper for the job.
