Most common are ordinary wasps, German wasps, red wasps, median wasps and European hornets. The amount of wasps in a nest may vary but can be up to thousands in each hive. Their hives consist of chewed wood as they find in logs, trees or panel etc. but they also nest in the ground. In the autumn all wasps die except the queen and the wasp's nest only survives one summer. Wasps are pollinators and should therefore not be combated unnecessarily.
How to avoid them:
- Keep clean and tidy next to rubbish bins
- Place screens on open windows
- Cover valves with mosquito net to prevent wasps to get in and nest, we can help you with this
- Place wasp traps in problematic areas, these you can order from us
Suitable treatments: removal of wasp's nest and chemical treatments.
