Tips from Dr Matthew Davies
- Now is the time to give your dusting equipment a maintenance check – you don’t want to be caught short with malfunctioning equipment in the middle of a busy wasp season!
- Consider the importance of offering a service to remove the wasp nest after treatment. An old wasp nest can be an unexpected source of secondary insect pest activity, such as carpet beetles
- Remember to make sure they are wasps in the first place! The tree bee Bombus hypnorum is commonly confused with wasps by members of the public
