PEST CONTROL SERVICE: WASPS & BEES
PROFESSIONAL PEST CONTROL
Only female wasps can deliver a sting, which they can use repeatedly if they feel under threat, normally a wasp sting will cause no long term effects however if you happen to be allergic a sting could potentially be fatal.
Only worker Bees sting, and only if they feel threatened and they die once they sting. Queens have a stinger, but they don’t leave the hive to help defend it.
Wasps build nests in lofts or attics, under eaves or even in wall cavities amongst other places around your home or business.
You should never attempt to remove a Wasps nest yourself a colony may have as many as 25,000 individual wasps and when a wasp stings you it releases a pheromone or chemical that marks you as the threat to other wasps. This pheromone then alerts other members of the colony that the nest is being threatened and more wasps join the attack. This can understandably be very dangerous especially for children.
Know Your Enemy
The sting of a wasp should wear off within 24 hours but for a small minority of people the venom in their sting causes anaphylactic shock which can be fatal.
A honey bee can fly for up to six miles, and as fast as 15 miles per hour.
A male wasp is called a Drone. The job of the Drone is to mate with the Queen. After they have fulfilled this mission, they die shortly afterwards.

Identification Of Wasp
Adult workers of the common wasp measure about 12–17 millimetres (0.47– 0.67 in) from head to abdomen, whereas the queen is about 20 millimetres (0.79 in) long.
It has aposematic colours of black and yellow and is very similar to the German wasp (or European wasp, Vespula germanica) but seen head on, its face lacks the three black dots characteristic of that species. Additionally it can be distinguished by a lack of black dots on its back (gastral terga), which are located further up and form part of the black rings on each of the abdomen’s six segments. Furthermore the genal area – the part of the head to which the jaws of an insect are attached – is usually broken by black (although sometimes narrowly).
