Our buildings and gardens are ideal for wasps because they provide food and an anchorage for their nests. Your fruit trees in your back garden can be a feeding site to many hundreds of wasps in the Summer. Although Savige Pest Control recognises wasps are beneficial insects, it is the danger they pose that leaves us with no other option than to eradicate them.
- Cause painful stings and even death. Their stings produce histamine in humans and can cause anaphylaxis. This can cause swelling in airways, difficulty in breathing and a drop in blood pressure. It is this condition that can prove life threatening.
- Swarm which can be very dangerous. If you discover a wasp nest it is very tempting to eradicate yourself. Unless you are quick you can be surrounded by hundreds of very angry wasps that will sting you many times over.
- Cause alarm particularly around children.
