Wasps have now become a daily nuisance for anybody trying to have
breakfast, lunch or dinner on the patio, use the swimming pool or have
friends round for a BBQ, Their numbers are on the increase because of
the recent laws past by the Government, that restricts the use of pesticides in
farmers fields. In the past removing a wasp nest was enough to remove
the threat. However, now, there are hundreds or thousands of wasps ready
to take their place. Numbers are on the brink of becoming epidemic
Signs of a Wasp InfestationSigns are dependent on species, but most often the workers and the nest are the most likely signs.
Despite the fear they sometimes evoke, wasps are extremely beneficial to humans. Nearly every pest insect on Earth is preyed upon by a wasp species, either for food or as a host for its parasitic larvae. Wasps are so adept at controlling pest populations that the agriculture industry now regularly deploys them to protect crops.
However in domestic situations, wasps will sting if they are (or feel) provoked. Sometimes just walking too close to a wasps nest will cause an attack.
Wasps under roof tiles.The most
frustrating situation with wasps is when they are swarming around and
landing in your swimming pool, making it very unpleasant and dangerous
for the bathers. Such large quantities of wasps are generally from
multiple nests nearby. In many cases the culprits are returning from the
pool to rest under roof tiles or bushes before returning to their nest.
There are many reasons why wasps are attracted to roof tiles and
contrary to common belief, it is very rare for wasps to make nests under
roof tiles, but it does happen.
It is impractical to remove all of the
tiles on a roof, however we have developed a system for finding wasp nests under
specific roof tiles, and once found the nest can then be removed.
A wasp nest however small is easily spotted by the sheer
numbers of wasps coming and going from one spot, anything else is just wasps coming and going.
Their normal route is:
1) Visit pool or find food, or find building material for nest.
2) Rest under roof tile.
3) Return to
So best to look for a nest(s) in the vicinity and the surrounding
area (including wasps nests in your neighbors garden).
Dissuading wasps from roof tiles, until now, has presented a potentially huge problem, as to treat
the roof tiles of a house is not only very difficult, it's time
consuming, and can be very costly.
We have designed a very simple
'insecticide dusting/spraying' technique
that does not involve finding/removing a nest, climbing on, or removing any part of your roof. It
kills wasps that arrive at the roof. Depending on how long the wasps
have been left undisturbed a second application may be needed. Normally,
roof treatment is recommended twice per year (Spring and Summer). It does not address the reasons behind why there are so many wasps in your garden.
