Wasps Leatherhead

During the summer months in Leatherhead the wasps nest rapidly grow and can contain many thousands of wasps all of which can deliver a painful sting. Removal of these wasps nests should not be treated lightly, the wasps become more aggressive when being disturbed and can swarm around the nest making treatment in enclosed areas such as loft spaces particularly dangerous.

Several thousand people are stung by these wasps each year. In some cases, severe allergic reactions to the venom have resulted in death.

The Pest Company use professional technicians in Leatherhead, using insecticidal contact powder or direct spray to destroy the wasps’ nest.

Wasps are probably the most familiar and generally disliked of all British insects, their bodies bear the characteristic black and yellow bands and they have a narrow waist in the middle of the body. The worker is 10-15mm in length and the queen is usually 20mm in length, both have two pairs of wings which lock together. Only female wasps have the ability to sting, which is near the tip of the abdomen.

Several species of wasps exist in Leatherhead and the rest of the UK but most abundant are the Common wasp (Vespula vulgaris) and German wasp, also known as the European wasp (Vespula germanica).
