Bees & wasps

Bees and wasps can be dangerous and should be acted upon as soon as they are found.

Bees are a common problem during summer, when they seek to establish a new hive inside wall cavities of residential or commercial premises. Their stings are mildly toxic, causing swelling of the skin, particularly of children and people with a fair complexion, and can be dangerous to those with an allergy. A swarm of bees can be extremely aggressive.

European Wasp nests are typically located in such places as pampas grass, kindling boxes, in weatherboard housing, under floor boards and in the ground. If provoked, they can attack as a single motivated group and may sting repeatedly in frenzy. In such circumstances, they can be highly dangerous to children, the infirm and elderly. The sting of a European wasp is extremely painful and highly inflammatory.

The paper wasp is usually found in a small papery nest usually hanging from a horizontal surface, such as, on walls under ceilings, window sills, awnings, shrubs and similar locations.
