The world of pest control works to the seasons and summer see’s the advent of ‘wasp season’, a common enough problem experienced by residents in Wokingham and Winnersh – the discovery of a wasp nest in the property. Wasps and hornets are something that many people fear due to the association of the painful stings and the sheer numbers of wasps.

We work hard to achieve a five star reputation and this is down to our service, when it comes to providing wasp nest removal our technicians will come out to your property and carryout a visual survey; they’re looking for smaller nests that maybe on the property and so far unnoticed. Its very common that a larger wasp colony is picking off wasps from a smaller one and taking out most of the insect prey from the area, removing the larger, dominant colony allows the smaller one to flourish. We treat every wasp nest we find on your property regardless of number for the same inclusive price, we also guarantee that activity will cease within hours and if by chance it doesn’t we’ll happily return to retreat and no additional charge.

There are eight different species of colony building wasps living in and around Wokingham and Winnersh; these are the ones that you’ll encounter in your garden or inside the property, depending on the species numbers will range from several hundred to several thousand and by the peak of summer we can expect certain species to be above ten thousand. This means that attempting a DIY service may not be exactly the correct course of action! Wasps communicate through pheromones and when agitated they release a distress pheromone, this excites all the wasps in the vicinity and may even cause some to come out from inside the nest.
Things go rapidly downhill from here; if you do get stung by a wasp it releases another pheromone which triggers an aggressive reaction in the others, wasps will home in, sting and even grab hold of your clothing. When this happens they release a third pheromone that acts to home in the other wasps, you’re only option at this point is to run away and remove the clothing.
Wasp stings are painful and they cause a allergic reaction in all of us, this varies from a small area reaction – a typical red painful lump on the skin to a large area reaction where the effected area swells up. This can be dangerous if the area is somewhere like the neck, face or inside the mouth, finally, some people can react dangerously and go into anaphylactic shock. First aid for wasps stings is essential, along with the reactions, bacteria from the surface of the stinger can be injected so always clean the site of a wasp sting with antiseptic – click this link to find out the symptoms and treatment for a wasp sting.

Here at Reading Pest Control we are ethical pest control professionals and so we will not treat bee’s nests – honey bees, bumble bee or masonry bees and we are happy to pay a free visit to your property to see the problem and determine if we can relocate the bee’s for you. There are many different species of bee and some of these are completely harmless, evolution means that they aren’t equipped with a stinger or venom sac; to make matters worse these bee’s camouflage themselves to look like wasps!
We put together a quick visual guide to the different types of bee – click this link to read the guide.
