How does a wasp problem start?
There are various factors that can cause a wasp problem. First it depends on the season and the weather. If it has been a very cold winter, in general there will be fewer wasps in the summer and more if it was a mild winter.
In addition, wasps are attracted to certain smells, such as sweet, sugary food/drink and meat. Always clear away empty soft drink glasses and plates immediately and cover glasses.
Remove a wasps’ nest?
When you suddenly come across a lot more wasps than normally, there could be a wasps’ nest nearby. We recommend contacting a professional wasp removal service. If you really want to attempt to remove the wasps’ nest yourself, then it is very important to remember the following tips:
1. Sluit de ingang van het wespennest niet af.
2. Is the wasps’ nest very large? Then it is not safe to remove it yourself. Contact a beekeeper or professional wasp removal service.
3. Wasps are more aggressive in late summer because food is becoming scarcer. Keep this in mind!
4. Wasps’ nests die out in the winter. If you find a nest around that time period, it is best to just wait.
5. Always wear protective clothing and gloves to protect yourself when removing the nest!
