Few remains are left of Groby Castle, dating from the 12th century, other than a small hill in the grounds of the village church building, which was the original medieval motte, and Groby Old Hall, the stone-built parts of which are thought to have been part of the castle’s outer buildings. In April 2010 archaeologists from Channel 4’s Time Team excavated the area behind the old hall and the parish church. They were looking to unravel the history of Groby Castle, and found a lost medieval mansion with its own chapel, built round a courtyard. Historically Groby, in the county of Leicestershire, is connected with two Queens of England. Groby Old Hall, built in the 15th century, was owned by Sir John Grey of Groby who married Elizabeth Woodville, who after his death in battle married King Edward IV and nearby Bradgate Park was the childhood home of Lady Jane Grey, who became Queen of England for just nine days in 1553! Groby has expanded vastly since the 1970s and is now part of the Leicester Urban Area, being dominated by housing estates built upon what was farming land between the historic part of Groby and the neighbouring village of Glenfield. With a moderate climate of cool winters and mild to warm summers the area provides perfect conditions for pests such as wasps, bees and hornets to thrive. Wasps are a painful nuisance, especially when you are enjoying a barbecue on a lovely summers day, and here at Direct Pest we are constantly being asked ‘How to get rid of wasps nests or a bee’s nest?’ or ‘How to kill wasps?’.
Well the simplest, most cost effective, and more importantly the safest way is to call out an expert to deal with your wasp infestation! We cannot advise strongly enough that choosing to deal with a wasp nest yourself by using ‘off the shelf’ wasp killer or wasp repellent is a highly dangerous activity, with one guaranteed outcome, if you attack a wasps nest, they will attack you! A wasp nest can vary in size from that of a football up to about a metre across, and will grow very quickly, and even an average sized nest can contain up to 20,000 wasps! A single sting by one wasp is a painful experience and can be very upsetting for children. But wasps can sting a person multiple times and some people, around 10%, can have adverse reactions to stings, an allergic reaction known as anaphylaxis which in extreme cases can be fatal.
To effectively deal with your infestation by getting rid of the wasps you do not need to remove the actual nest, this will disintegrate naturally once the parasitic wasps inside have been dealt with. At Direct Pest we use a synthetic plant sterol to solve the problem of your wasp nest. This product is not available to you or I as it contains 60% permethrin, whereas the solutions available in the shops are only 0.5% to 1% permethrin.. All of our pest controllers are RSPH level 2 or above in Pest Management, and so are extremely experienced and well equipped to provide a speedy solution to your wasp problem, whether in your house, garden or business premises.
