Deadly Wasp Stings

The recent news that a pest controller has sadly died as a result of just two wasp stings is an alarming reminder of the potential threat that these tiny flying insects are to both humans and pets such as dogs and cats.

Never attempt to remove or disturb a wasp nest without the appropriate safety clothing and an understanding of the way in which wasps live and protect their nests.  The safest thing is to call a trained pest controller.
