Wasp Control

Wasps go Wild in Wells

Wasp nest, Wells, treated by Barron Pest Control Wells, the Cathedral City, on the Southern side of the Mendips appears to be a bit of a wasp hot spot this year. Amongst random calls for wasps Wells is at the moment top of my league for wasp activity. Sometimes the call for the nest which the client has found isn't the only nest on site and after having a good look and observing the wasp "traffic" I have found as many as six at one property.

Wasp nest, garden shed, Midsomer Norton treated by Barron Pest Control With the hot, dry conditions of the past few weeks the" buzzy, bitey" insects seem to have flourished. The calls for "wasps", which were really bumble bees have stopped & now the wasp calls really are for wasps.
Wasp nest, stone wall, Axbridge, treated by Barron Pest Control After the prolonged wet weather of last summer and the artic blast through the spring I wasn't hopeful of seeing very many wasps, however quite a number appear to have survived the extreme conditions judging by the number of enquiries we've had for nest treatments.

Wasps at Glastonbury

Hurrah!!!  First call this year yesterday for wasps. Not so good was the address of the property - right in the middle of the Somerset village of Pilton, home of the Glastonbury Festival and with the festival opening yesterday to the public I was very dubious about the journey - I could be stuck in traffic for most of the day. However, the client was panic stricken as the insects had chewed a hole in the ceiling of a utility room, had exited the nest into the room & were ready to take on all comers.
