What do wasps feed on
Wasps usually eat insects, which are mainly garden or household pests. However, they also feed on dustbin waste and animal carcasses.
A wasp, unlike a bee, can sting many times. Although the wasp sting is not normally serious, it can be excruciating, and in certain cases, can cause a severe reaction.

Is it necessary?
Nests located in areas away from human contact can be left untreated. It would help if you remembered that wasps have a beneficial aspect as they kill many garden insect pests. However, when a wasp nest is located in an area where they may come across humans, you should carry out wasp nest removal services to keep yourself safe from stings.
If you decide to treat the nest yourself, you must first locate the entrance to the nest. Following the flight pattern of returning wasps may help.
Treatment should be carried out very early or late in the day when activity is at a minimum. Apply the insecticide to the nest's entrance or directly on to the nest if it is visible.
Consider the risks carefully before attempting treatment yourself. For example, wasps are very aggressive when their nest is threatened, and multiple stings may result if your protective clothing is inadequate.
When using pesticides, always follow the instructions on the label.
We recommend using a professional wasp nest removal company in Cardiff or South Wales to complete the work as it can be dangerous without the relevant PPE. Contact us to learn more about our wasp treatments, pricing or for some free advice.
