The Wasps found in New Zealand are an introduced pest. They attack honey bees and compete for pollen sources of the Honey bee. They are considered a pest. If you have found a Wasp nest on your property, you should consider calling EcoSan Solutions to destroy the nest.
Wasp’s stings are painful for several minutes after the incident or pain and irritation can persist for hours. Some people may experience a localised reaction which may result in pain, swelling and irritation for several days.
Anaphylaxis can occur with people stung who have a Wasp allergy, although previous wasp stings with little reaction do not make one immune to Anaphylaxis as it can occur suddenly and randomly. Anaphylaxis is a serious medical condition which requires assistance from a medical professional.
Anaphylaxis can lower blood pressure, if a person stung by a Wasp(s) is experiencing muscle weakness or dizziness, contact medical assistance immediately.
During the summer period, Wasp control in Auckland increases a lot for pest controllers with some summers seeing more than usual amounts.
