Whats is it about wasp stings that make then so painful? I get that mossie bites itch and ants give you a nasty little nip but as a pest controller I do get stung by wasps from time to time and why oh why are they so painful? 
 
So I did a little research; for me its like a lightening bolt when they sting followed by nothing and then nothing, after a couple of hours I get the 'itch' and ohh what an itch. Then the swelling and more itching, no pain except for that first few seconds but the swelling is painful and the itch keeps me awake at night. 
The hot plume of Saharan air has certainly mixed things up with the wasps, everyone enjoys hot weather and these insectivores are no different. 
I couldn't help myself when I saw these poppies growing at the side of the road and to my delight someone else couldn't resist either! 
We love bee's here at All Aspects Pest Control; we don't keep them but as someone who gets called out to destroy their nests and colonies you soon realise that these amazing insects don't actually pose a threat to us and they are something that should be protected. 
We get numerous calls to reports of wasps only to find out that they're bumble bee's or honey bee's so we have put together a quick visual guide to what is a pest and what isn't. 
Some hoverflies are disguised to look like wasps and we have a policy of not treating bee's unless its absolutely necessary, so use this guide to help work out if its wasps or bee's. 
Its been a long hot and busy summer for pest control; is this the new normal and what does hotter summers mean with regards to pests? 
Summers here and so are the wasps; callouts rising to treat wasp nests in Reading and across Berkshire, these insects deliver a painful sting. 
The striking yellow and black banding on wasps has always thought to be a warning sign - "Danger I sting!" but scientists have discovered that the bands are the insect equivalent of solar panels allowing the wasps to covert UVB into insectricity. 
We deal with wasps and hornets as a professional company; these pack a powerful punch and can have serious consequences - read more about the chemicals in a wasps' venom and why its best to leave it to a pest controller. 
 
We guarantee our wasp treatments throughout Reading, Wokingham, Bracknell and Maidenhead - when we say that our customers are our priority : we mean it. 
 
Asian hornets decimate bee colonies - find out about Asian hornet control from All Aspects Pest Control covering Wokingham, Reading and surrounds of Berkshire. 
 
The asian hornet had been found on the Channel island of Alderney last summer, meaning that this is the first recorded case of the asian hornet in the UK, the hornets are a major threat to bee keepers as their main prey are honey bees. This year they have spread into Gloucestershire and unless successfully checked spread across the South of England; experts believe that the north is to cold to support the Queens overwinter.
