Apex Pest Control Releases Blog Post On The Best Pest Control For Wasps

August 23, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Apex Pest Control, a pest control company based in Sheffield, UK, has announced that they have recently released a blog post that offers advice to people tackling a wasp nest in their property this summer. The article is titled “Do You Know the Best Pest Control Wasps Hate?” and discusses the best pest control for wasps. The article warns that attempting to remove the wasps nests can be dangerous and ineffective.

Tony Johnson, owner of Apex Pest Control, says, “Wasps are more than annoying flying pests in summer. They inflict stings, often when unprovoked, and they can attack when you least expect it, while walking to your car, talking outside with a friend, or signing for a package.”

He continues, “Their stings are quite painful, and can even trigger anaphylaxis (severe allergic reactions) in some individuals. If you have a wasp nest on your property, it’s time to call a wasp pest control company. Professional pest control specialists such as those at Apex can quickly, reliably and safely handle wasp nest removal.”

Tony Johnson also wants to point out that unlike bees, wasps are more aggressive and can often sting even when unprovoked. Also, unlike bees, wasps do not die after stinging once. Thus, they can inflict several stings on a person during a single attack. This is why it is not advisable for people to remove wasp nest themselves. Disturbing their nest can result in a large number of stings that can be medically concerning.

Furthermore, wasps do not only pose a danger to people but also to structures in the home or building. Wasps eat wood, which means they can be a danger to wooden structures. They can eat away at the wooden frames and support beams of a structure in lofts. Also, wasp nests that are located on finished surfaces, such as siding or soffit, can peel and erode paint, with the result that the underlying wood can rot.

Another problem with wasps nests is that they are often difficult to find, particularly those that are located between walls, balconies, and cramped spaces like the attic. Thus, it is advisable to look for certain signs that indicate a wasps nest is situated near the home or business. These include the presence of a large number of wasps gathered in just one area; the presence of wasps crawling into crevices on the exterior siding; and presence of small mounds or honeycomb structures that are made from paper-mache style material. It is also important to check attic corners, bird boxes, nearby trees, and garage corners for the presence of wasps.

When people find a nest without any live wasps, it may not be an active nest but it is always advisable to proceed with caution and let a professional pest control company do the removal. Wasps usually use their nests for a single season, so abandoned nests are quite common.

However, if there are wasps near the nest, it is likely that it is inhabited and people should call a reliable pest control company to remove the nest and not do it themselves. Trying to remove the wasps nest themselves can pose a danger not only to the person removing the nest but also to others nearby. There is the risk of stings and also from exposure to harmful pesticides.

Tony Johnson has more than 30 years of experience as a pest controller. He has experience in all areas of pest control, dealing with pests in homes, commercial businesses, deer stalking, and farming. He established Apex Pest Control in 2016 when he decided to move back to Sheffield. Tony points out that there are many reasons why people would want to choose their company. These include the fact that they have more than 30 years of experience, are fully insured, offer their services 7 days a week, accept credit and debit card payments, are NPTA members, have BPCA, RSH and LANTRA trained operators, and use unmarked vehicles.

Sep 21, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Authorities shut most schools in parts of Indonesia's Sumatra island to protect children from a thick, noxious haze as deliberately set fires burned through peatland forests, officials said Wednesday. Indonesia's Disaster Mitigation Agency said more than 3,600 fires have been detected on Sumatra and Borneo islands by weather satellites, leading to very poor air quality in six provinces with a combined population of more than 23 million. Nearly every year, Indonesian forest fires spread health-damaging haze across the country and into neighboring Malaysia and Singapore. Authorities have deployed more than 9,000 people to fight the fires, which...

Indonesia to move capital from sinking Jakarta to Borneo

Sep 21, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia's president says the country's capital will move from overcrowded, sinking and polluted Jakarta to a site in sparsely populated East Kalimantan province on Borneo island, known for rainforests and orangutans. President Joko Widodo said Monday intense studies over the past three years had resulted in the choice of the location on the eastern side of Borneo island. The new capital city, which has not yet been named, will be in the middle of the vast archipelago nation and already has relatively complete infrastructure because it is near the cities of Balikpapan and Samarinda, Widodo said. He...

China lets currency sink to 11-year low after Trump threats

Sep 21, 2019

BEIJING — China allowed its yuan to sink to an 11-year low Monday after President Donald Trump sent jittery financial markets tumbling by announcing new tariff hikes and threatening to block American companies from doing business with this country. The escalation in the fight over trade and technology prompted warnings that chances for a settlement were disappearing. The yuan declined to 7.1468 to the dollar, a relatively modest change from Friday's low point of 7.0927 but its weakest rate since January 2008. The yuan has lost 6.5% from this year's high on Feb. 28. Chinese leaders have promised to avoid...

China threatens retaliation if US tariff hikes go ahead

Sep 21, 2019

BEIJING — China on Thursday threatened retaliation if Washington steps up their war over trade and technology by going ahead with planned Sept. 1 tariff hikes on additional Chinese imports. Beijing will take unspecified "necessary countermeasures," the Cabinet said in a one-sentence statement. It gave no details or any indication plans for trade talks in Washington in September might be affected. The mounting tension has unnerved financial markets that worry the global economy will tip into recession. President Donald Trump says he plans to impose 10% duties on an additional $300 billion of Chinese imports, extending penalties to almost everything...
