There is a rapid increase in the activities of European wasps in our area because of the current weather conditions. And pest control services in Canberra have been receiving a number of calls related to this pest. You might think of yourself as lucky if you are living in Canberra and have not yet met them. But think again.
About 12,000 wasp species are known all over Australia. They have important roles in our ecosystem but some species can become pests in local areas and trigger a threat from stinging.
When they start to enter your property, the only way to defeat them is to destroy their nest. Sounds easy? Not at all.
European wasps are very aggressive when it comes to protecting their nests. And what’s scarier is that they attack in large numbers. Why? Because European wasps release chemicals to alert other wasps when they are attacked. Dealing with them will need the help of the European Wasp Pest Control Canberra. You can always call our team at 0407 065 413 if you need urgent help on this.
Alarming European Wasps’ Activities in Canberra
A1 Pest Control Canberra, as general pest control experts, has been receiving calls for European wasps’ nests multiple times a day.
And just last week, we received 29 calls for this pest. Can you imagine? That’s 29 possible European wasp nests! And that is just in our area, Canberra.
In one case, we got a call from a lovely gentleman who has reported hearing loud buzzing sounds in his ceiling. And when our expert technician checked the location, we found a 400 mm nest of European wasps. And what’s worse here, the wasps have already eaten the plaster in the gentleman’s ceiling.
After the initial call, our technicians already brought the necessary gear and equipment for this type of pest. Wearing the full wasps’ gear, our technicians carefully inspected the area and applied the necessary wasp treatment.
It’s a good thing that we were immediately called to take care of the nest. European wasps will attack if they feel an unwanted presence near their nest or when they feel threatened. An untrained person is certainly not someone that can take care of the nest removal.
In most cases, the wasp nest will not immediately be removed after the application of treatment. There are foraging wasps that are out of the nests so we need to give them time to return first. And when they do, the treatment will also work on them and thus, making sure to eliminate the whole colony.
After removing the wasps’ nest and making sure the wasps were cleared, we discussed some recommendations and advised the gentleman who called us on how to prevent the wasps from returning.
This was just one of those many alarming cases of European wasps in Canberra, and we certainly don’t want you to put yourself in danger.
What to do when you find wasps on your property?
Take note of these important reminders.
- First, if you find one that’s flying around, do not try to catch it. Leave it alone and carefully follow it from afar to locate its nest.
