We need to talk about Wasps…they are classified as a pest but Bees are not. But they are both vital pollinators contributing to the success of the food chain that keeps us all alive.
Pest controllers are very busy for a few months dealing with nests and it can be very lucrative.
But we want to ask that next time you have a wasps nest, before you call us up to have it destroyed, please consider whether you can live with it and let them carry on with their valuable work?
Wasps don’t return to their nests once they have used them so chances are they wont be back. If you can live alongside the nest for the year we would recommend you fill the access holes they have found and they will find somewhere else to go and live.
