There are two main species of pest wasps species in the UK: the Common Wasp [Vespula vulgaris] and the German Wasp [Vespula germanica]. Both species are similar to look at; approx 10-20mm in length with distinctive bright yellow and black banding and are capable of delivering a nasty sting.

Reactions to stings can be severe and even fatal in some individuals. Workers feed primarily on protein (other insects) which is required for feeding larvae but in late summer the diet switches to more sugar-based foods.

In late July and August wasps are particular pests at pubs, cafes, food manufacturing plants as a result. The Queen is responsible for egg laying, emerging from hibernation in mid April to construct a small nest of 20-30 egg chambers. As the population builds sterile workers take over the responsibilities of acquiring food and building/maintaining the nest.

By late summer the population of the nest can have reached anything from 3000 to 30000 wasps. New queens emerge in late summer once the Queen has died before flying off to find suitable locations to over-winter.

Although many pest species can be relatively easily controlled the key is correct identification. Incorrect identification of the pest species or extent of infestation are the most common reasons for failure. For this reason All Pest Services offer a bespoke service for most types of insect control. The first thing is to give us a call to discuss the problem. Some issues can be resolved without the need for treatment. Alternatively we can carry out a site survey to ensure the problem is correctly identified and efficiently dealt with.

Answer

Although most insects do not cause us problems and many are benign or even beneficial even in our homes there are other insects that can cause problems. These may need controlling for reasons such as preventing the spread of disease, preventing damage to livestock and crops or property, preserving public health or public or safety. Some insects can bite or sting (such as Fleas, Bed Bugs or wasps) while others spread disease such as cockroaches which can spread diseases such as Staphylococcus spp., E Coli, Shigella spp., Salmonella spp. Other insects are significant because of their role in damaging or contaminating foodstuffs, such as Grain Weevil, Flour Beetle, Grain and Flour Moths etc.

Answer

Causing harm to any species, whether insect or otherwise, is a last resort. Some species, such as flies and night moths can be effectively controlled using Fly Screen Doors and Windows or the installation of Electric Fly Control Units. Others can be effectively managed by removing their food source. In many cases however a pesticide will be needed. All Pest Services can advise on the installation of Fly Screens and Fly Control Units as well as the safest and most appropriate pesticides where necessary.

Answer

This is a complex area and is governed by a wide range of legislation including the Food and Environment Protection Act 1985 Part 3 [FEPA], the Control of Pesticide Regulations 1986 [COPR], the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations [COSHH], amongst others. If you’re unsure seek advice from a reputable pest control company like All Pest Services. Certain species such as honey bees, while not specifically protected, are becoming increasingly endangered and should not be destroyed apart from in extreme situations. In many cases a bee keeper will be able to remove them without causing any harm if it is absolutely necessary. Specific measures must be followed if control measures are required – please seek advice before you act!
