Don't Get Stung
Many of the companies advertising as Leeds based companies are actually based in Derby and are often featured on the BBC TV show Rogue Traders.
These out of town companies often charge up-to £200.00 for a simple wasp treatment. Always ensure that the company you call is an actual local company and is not simply using a fraudulent Google places listing.
Another common scam is call centers who advertise as pest control companies. They take an upfront payment over the phone and then pass the work on to a local unqualified handyman who may or may not even turn up as the call centres often fail to pay their contractors.
There are a few main species of wasps that cause problems in the UK. The Common wasp and the European wasp are the most common. Their habits wasp are almost identical an do not really warrant further discussion here.
Wasps are social insects and live in colonies for most of the season the nest consists of a queen and sterile female workers. Towards the end of a season male wasps and fertile females are also produced following mating the mated females “queens” leave the nest and look for a suitable location to “overwinter”. In spring of the following year the new queens emerge and look for a suitable place to but a nest. She starts by building a few cells in a small nest to begin a colony. One egg is laid in each cell and the queen feeds the developing lava. After a period of around 30 days the first batch of workers emerge, and immediately take over the task of food collection and nest building while the queen continues egg production. Wasp nest size will vary, but they often contain ten thousand wasps late August.
Wasps will defend a nest if they feel it’s under threat, inadvertently getting too close to a nest may be enough to causes the wasps to attack. Wasp stings are not only painful the can often lead to a serious allergic reaction and in rare cases death.

I generally only cover the Leeds and wider LS postcode areas areas but travel nationwide to deal with larger problems such as bed bugs in hotels. and contract pest control on large commercial sites. However if I am are unable to attend I should be able to recommend a local pest controller.
