  21. Pest control - wasps

    You may have one of three problems

    • An active wasp nest on your property.
    • Hibernating queen wasps waking too early.
    • Nuisance wasps (where the nest cannot be found).

    Whatever the scenario you will want to get rid of the wasps as they can cause a nasty sting that gives you not only a dose of venom but also an unhealthy amount of bacteria. Wasps are naturally defensive of their nests and will sting anyone or anything (without provocation) just for walking near to the nest. So if you have a nest close to your home or in your garden you should have it treated to avoid the risk of being stung.
