Wasps have hit the news along with Pharaoh Ants.
With the cooler winter and the milder spring, wasp numbers are predicted to increase over the summer. If you do spot a wasp nest (made of a grey paper like material) or an area with a high number of wasps stay clear of it, they are very territorial and will defend it if they feel threatened. Don’t panic whilst they are close to you as this may agitate them.
If you are unlucky enough to get stung, then visit the local chemist or seek medical attention.
Sage Pest Solutions treat Wasps in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, Cheshire and West Midlands so if you do see a nest on your property contact us and we can solve the problem for you.
Pharaoh Ants can cause a nightmare when not treated properly, common over the shelf treatments can cause the nests to split up in to more nests for better protection. Once they split this can obviously cause more of a problem to eradicate. Pharaoh ants are smaller with a brown/yellow appearance.
If you suspect you have Pharaoh ants please call us. Don’t attempt to self treat these as the problem could just get worse.
