Wasp callouts rise in Reading
Posted on 22nd April 2019 at 08:16
The earlier hot spell coupled with the lovely warm Easter is leading to a rise in wasp treatments across Reading - more information:
April is here and the so are the wasps, no matter where you live in Reading whether in the town centre or out in the suburbs there is a high chance that this year you will have a problem with wasps.
Why is that?
Well last year was a record for wasp numbers; nationally we ran out of the pesticide used to control wasps which led to a reduced number or colonies being successfully destroyed and with the combination of a mild winter and the high temperatures that we saw earlier in the year, many queen wasps will have successfully overwintered and have begun forming this years colony.
We have seen a number or early callouts for wasps in Reading and we anticipate another year of high activity.
The warm weather over the Easter bank holiday will help set the new colonies off to a flying start: wasps are unusual that they can convert sunlight to electrical energy, scientists discovered this only recently and it is thought that warm sunny conditions give the wasps a major boost and allow them to experience a boost in activity and breeding. More wasps mean more workers to forage for insects and build bigger nests.
This year we have seen a realignment of the license that we have to use certain chemicals in different environments: it is no longer allowed to use the most popular pesticide outside and its use is now banned. If you have a wasp nest that requires treatment ensure that you use a qualified professional pest controller who is a member of a national organisation. These changes to wasp control are known about in the professional industry and their incorrect usage in the environment could lead to prosecution.
Here at Reading pest control we are members of the National Pest Technicians Association and we guarantee our wasp treatments throughout Reading.
At Reading Pest Control we say that our customers are our priority and we mean it - if we attend your property for a wasp nest and we find another nest on our survey, we'll treat that nest at no extra charge and we're guarantee it for a 100% reductiuon in wasps.
