When asking yourself what the most annoying insect is, I’m sure you have a list of pests that give you a shiver. Ants, flies, and wasps are the most likely choices that people would answer; but many others give people the ick too.  Others include bed bugs, termites, and many more creepy crawlies.

Underneath, we have listed some of our top tips to ensure your home is bug-free. However, if or when the time comes that you need to fight back against an insect invasion of your home or business, make sure you call a professional (cough cough).

With years of experience, the Wallace Pest Control specialist pest removal team will ensure you win the battle and secure the property to prevent a returning infestation.


Although wasps can be useful around the garden by consuming dead insects and flies, they can be a nuisance too. Apart from stinging, their persistence can be irritating and present a threat to a potential allergic reaction.

Wasp Control

Secure the perimeter if you want to keep wasps from invading your house, and sealing up tiny cracks around the edges of windows, doors or where external pipes and lines that travel inside your home are all perfect opportunities for pests to breach your property.

Use Wasp Traps

Commercial or homemade wasp traps are great for catching a singular wasp. These traps are a good solution if you see an occasional wasp in your area or for trapping wasps ready for a professional to remove the pest.
