Wasps

Being stung by a wasp or bee is a painful experience and can be life threatening to anyone who may be allergic to stings. However, it is possible to reduce these risks by taking sensible precautions when outdoors and ensuring that wasp or bee nests are properly managed.

Honey bees

Wasps can also be confused with bees, in particular Honey Bees - however these vary in colour from golden brown to almost black and are furrier than wasps.

Bees are an endangered species and a bees nest will only be removed if it poses a significant threat to nearby people. Rentokil will only treat a bees nest as a last resort and with honey bees, only after contacting a qualified bee keeper.

Rentokil’s wasp control solution

Wasps have the potential to attack in large numbers if their nest is disturbed.

It is best to treat a nest earlier in the year before numbers increase and the wasps become more aggressive, increasing the threat of stings during treatment.

At Rentokil, we can offer safe and convenient solutions to get rid of your wasp problem quickly. Our qualified technicians require just one 30 - 45 minute visit to treat a nest, so contact us today to book in your treatment.
