Manchester Treatment of wasp Nests

It’s no secret that it doesn’t take much to make wasps aggressive. Their behaviour usually gets worse over the summer here in the Manchester areas as their numbers increase at the same time as food supplies start to dwindle. But even when food is available to them, it can still cause their tempers to flare up. If they consume fruit that is fermenting, it can make them behave as if they are drunk, which doesn’t make their behaviour any nicer! And many a barbeque or picnic has been ruined by wasps gate-crashing the scene. Worst of all is being stung by a wasp, which can be painful for most of us, and life-threatening for some. Here Manchester Pest Control offers some advice for sting treatment and prevention:

Wasp stings – treatment Manchester Pest Control

1. If you have been stung, the sting site and the skin around it is likely to be sore and itchy. It is important not to scratch it as this may cause an infection or blood poisoning.
2. Sometimes, the stinger might break off and remain in the wound, in which case it will need to be removed. We recommend holding the base of the stinger as far down as possible, so that none of it is left behind when you pull it out, and also to reduce the risk of squeezing more venom into the site.
3. Apply a cold compress – a packet of frozen peas wrapped in a thin tea towel should help to calm any inflammation. Apply for 10-15 minutes, then take a break and apply again later if the skin is still flushed and sore.
4. Clean the site of the sting and apply an antihistamine cream or gel to help relieve the pain, and reduce the swelling and itching. Be sure to read the product instructions first as in some situations they may be unsuitable.
5. Only a small percentage of the population suffer from the condition known as anaphylaxis – reassuringly, NHS data from 2014 suggests that Greater Manchester had the lowest incidence in the country. However, it can still happen, and does not help matters that people may be unaware that are sufferers until they are stung and go into anaphylactic shock. The symptoms can come on very quickly, and can be life-threatening without prompt medical assistance. If the person who was stung experiences shortness of breath, dizziness or nausea, as well as swelling not just around the wound but elsewhere on the body including swelling of the lips and face, phone for an ambulance immediately.

Wasp stings – prevention

1. One simple piece of advice that people often forget when wasps are in the vicinity is to stay calm. The more agitated you become –
moving quickly, waving your arms around and trying to swat it – the more agitated the wasp is likely to become, and the greater the chances of being stung. If possible, stay still and wait for the wasp to lose interest; otherwise, try to move away slowly and without any sudden movements.
2. If you encounter a wasp in your house or car, again – try not to panic! Carefully open the nearest window and the wasp is likely to fly straight out. If you remain calm, you won’t get stung, and you’re less likely to fall down the stairs or crash your car either – which are other ways that a wasp might send you to Manchester Royal Infirmary hospital!
3. If you are having a picnic or barbeque, try to keep as much food as possible covered or in sealed containers until you need it, so that wasps are less likely to detect it. This applies to sweet foods and drinks in particular. The more tempting the spread looks to you, the more appealing it will look to wasps as well. If necessary, it’s better to sacrifice one plate of food rather than the whole buffet.
4. Darker clothing has sometimes been known to attract the attention of wasps, so you could try wearing lighter colours in order to deter them. The same goes for strong perfumes and scented candles – even if they smell nice, they increase the risk of wasps arriving on the scene, so may be best avoided (especially outdoors) during the summer months.
5. Finally, if you are aware of the location of a wasps’ nest, our advice is to keep away from it and contact us here at Manchester Pest Control so that we can exterminate the nest before it gets any larger and becomes a bigger problem. Whatever you do, don’t try to deal with the nest yourself, as you are more likely to get stung by angry wasps. Cheshire’s DIY stores might tell you they have a better solution, but you’re the one putting yourself at risk if you go anywhere near the nest, and shop-bought insecticides do not carry Manchester Pest Control’s guarantee of a job seen through to the finish – so make sure your money’s well spent and you stay safe in the process.
