Useful Wasp info

Did you know that the venom in a wasp sting contains a pheromone that causes other wasps to become more aggressive. Which is why we advise against treating a wasps nests yourself!
The effects from the sting of a wasp should wear off within 24 hours, always seek medical help if symptoms continue or you start to feel worse.

If you happen to get stung there are some home remedies that can help alleviate the pain. Apply a cold compress for 5 -10 minuets, you can apply a deodarant containing aluminium to help fight the pain, or vinegar/apple cider vinegar on some cotton wool. Honey can help the sting wound heal and reduce itching after the pain has subsided.

Queen wasps who have survived hibernating through the winter will find a suitable site and start nest building throughout spring. She will lay up to a dozen eggs and when they hatch into larvae she will feed them until they become workers. The workers then carry on nest production and forage for food, feed new larvae and defend the nest.

In late summer, the colony produces the males (Drones) and the new queens. They leave the nest to mate, the new queens then find a place to hibernate over the winter months. The cold weather will eventually kill the males workers and foundation queen.

Wasps are sometimes confused for honey bees. Although similar in size, their markings and colours are different. Wasps are usually between 1.3cm – 1.8cm (queens 2cm) and have a larger body than honey bees with black and yellow stripes. Wasps do not swarm like honey bees tend to, honey bees are also more gentle natured and reluctant to sting. Wasps can sting repeatedly and rapidly! Wasps will feed on smaller insects, sugary drinks or food waste. Honey bees feed on nectar from flowers.

How To Identify If You Have A Wasp Nest

  • Wasps and Hornets can construct their nests internally or externally, also within hedges or in the ground. if you can see them entering and exiting from a specific place. For example, a hole or crack in the wall, under roof tiles or around soffit and fascias, then that will probably be a nest site.
  • Often you will hear faint scratching or a light tapping noise within ceilings or walls. This is the sound wasps and hornets make when they are constructing their nests.
  • In the height of the wasp season you will notice a lot of activity around a specific area, if you look closely you should be able to see where the wasps or hornets are entering, under roof tiles, gutters or air bricks are common locations for wasp nests.

FAQ

What if I have more than one nest?

We charge £20.00 for each additional wasp nest located and treated on the same day as the initial call out.

Can I just treat a nest myself?

Sure! But we wouldn’t recommend it unless you know what you’re doing & have protective equipment. 

How do you treat a nest?

We either use a powder applied through pressurised equipment or we can use a quick knock down liquid/aerosol treatment.

How long does a treatment take?

Treatments can vary depending on several factors, but on average a treatment will usually take between 15 – 30 minuets. 

What if a treatment fails?

If on the rare occasion a treatment hasn’t been effective, then we return free of charge to carry out a second treatment.  

Do I need to be there?

No, if we can carry out the treatment from the outside. Yes, if we will need access to a loft area for example.

Our Customer Reviews

5/5
Speedy, efficient, effective, good value. Gave a very speedy response to my call out to treat a wasp nest around my upstairs window. George arrived at the arranged time, made a thorough investigation of the house, and located another nest that I was not aware of. He treated both very effectively and we are now all clear of wasps. Phew! Helpful and informative throughout the visit. Highly recommended.

We Do Not Treat Honey Bees Or Bumble Bees

No treatments for Honey Bees or Bumble Bees will be available from Bentley Environmental. Quite simply without Bees, we wouldn't be here! The vast majority of plants we need for food rely on pollination by Bees and other pollinating insects.

Did You Know Bumblee nests can often be relocated if they are found to be in an accessible location. Visit The Bumblebee Conservation Trust for more details.

Honey Bees swarms can also often be collected by a local Bee Keeper who will remove them to one of their own hives! Visit The British Bee Keepers Association for more information.
