Worthing Garden Sheds
Get Rid of Wasps Once and For All In Worthing
The downside of the warmer weather is the return of the flying nasty insects which can include flies, dragon flies, may bugs, ants, ladybirds, bees and wasps. Considering there are nearly a millions different species of insects we probably don’t do too bad. Out of these the ones I dislike the most is the wasp which reminds me of a bad tempered traffic warden, or me when Grimsby Town lose, and I can’t see their purpose in life. Normally insects are part of the food chain but I can’t imagine that anything would want to eat a wasp when they may get stung on the inside.
The garden shed and workshop does tend to be home to many nests for these insects so it makes sense to check it out to ensure it’s free from them. If you do find any in your shed, normally under the eaves or in a dry corner, then I think it’s best to get an expert to tackle these nests and remove so it is clear for use again. Provided you don’t leave it too late in the Spring you can be lucky and have a wasp free shed.
As I say we are reasonably lucky that the insect population is not too bad however over in New Zealand residents were being told to be wary about an explosion of wasps in their sheds and their gardens. Norman Kerr, a pest exterminator, said that his company was having trouble keeping up with the demand for garden sheds to be de-wasped as more and more people had been opening up their buildings and finding them infected with wasps. Garden compost heaps and leaf matter were also overrun with these insects. At one stage he was receiving 200 calls per day.
Even worse, Mr Kerr said, was a couple who found their Worthing bedroom had been taken over by hundreds of wasps after a large wasp nest in their roof cracked the ceiling. It’s bad enough in the garden or the shed but indoors – in your bedroom – that’s a truly horrific experience. The reason for this explosion was the mild winter, just like we have had, and that a large number of queen wasps have survived in the dry, cosy garden sheds, and this is one possible reason for this explosion of nasties.
The wasp is, by nature, more aggressive that the bee and has a multi sting capacity that allows it to sting its victim more than once. If stung then a cold compress should be applied to the stings or antihistamine cream or hydrocortisone cream applied to the affected areas and this will help to reduce the swelling and possible pain. Surely this is a good enough reason to ensure that these wasps are evicted from your garden shed before they have an opportunity to expand their numbers.
Oh to be in Worthing Now That Spring is Here
Tomatoes and strawberries are probably some of the most tasty produce you can grow and strawberries straight from the garden can’t be beaten. They can be grown in pots in the garden or in garden grow bags. Just ensure that they have plenty of water and put in the garden where the sun shines most of the day. In front of the garden shed can be ideally as this radiates the sun’s warmth and can keep the winds off.
This view is backed up by the gardening expert, Dan Pearson, who also says this is the time of year to dig out the trowel from your garden sheds and to get on with your gardening duties. He provides several tips to get the gardening season under way and this will help to ensure that your experience in the garden in an enjoyable and rewarding one.
He says that planting now that Spring is here should be undertaken as soon as possible, although you need to be careful with any spring frosts in Worthing. Bare root and root balled planting should also be undertaken very soon but maybe a few more weeks later in the more exposed areas will be prudent. You could consider utilising your garden shed to give some shelter in these early weeks.
Planting in containers is another clever idea. Being in containers these can be moved and sheltered in the garden shed if the temperature looks like dropping. By ensuring the containers are out in the warm sun as much as possible this will give them the best start to their lives. Just ensure you keep an eye on the weather and move to the shed when it threatens.
The other side to the warmer weather is that it does bring out the garden pests as well. They enjoy the warmth as much as your new garden plants will do so you need to watch out for them to stop them in their tracks. You will find that beetles will hatch out on these sunny Worthing days so you need to keep on top of these pests on an ongoing basis. In most garden sheds you will find a range of treatments to help stop them in their tracks but do ensure that the shed is kept locked to ensure that children can’t gain access to these treatments.
Gardeners who don’t keep treatments in their sheds and prefer to take a more natural organic gardening approach can pick these beetles off every day although most gardeners prefer to take the easier route and to spray them. Besides the above there is a massive amount of gardening tasks to get on with and with the warmer weather can actually be therapeutic.
