Wasp Collecting for Allergy Treatments

Who We Are

ALK A/S is a research-based global pharmaceutical company focused on the treatment and prevention of allergy. The company is devoted to improving the quality of life for people with allergies by developing pharmaceutical products that treat the actual cause of allergy. These unique treatments known as "allergy immunotherapy" induce a protective immune response which reduces and potentially halts future allergic reactions.

ALK Source Materials (ASM) is a subsidiary of ALK A/S focused on producing the allergenic source materials used in immunotherapy treatments around the world. ASM is involved in the collection of everything from grass and tree pollens to dust mites, cat hair and insect venom- all of which are used in protecting patients from future, potentially life-threatening allergic reactions. To manufacture immunotherapy vaccines, ALK uses ASM's products and further manufactures them into patient vaccines. The vaccines are then administered to allergic patients in gradually increasing doses thereby building protective immunity and preventing future allergic reactions.

Why is this free?

ASM has a worldwide network of suppliers who actively search for and collect the source materials used in the manufacture of allergy immunotherapy vaccines. For treatment specific to insect sting allergy, we are looking for hornet, wasp and yellow jacket nests on your property or in your community from which we can harvest the insects themselves.

Since we are in need of them and you probably are not, ASM will remove them from your property free-of-charge and later extract their venom in our laboratory and use it to treat the millions of people around the world who are allergic to "bee" stings.

We thank you for taking the time to complete a removal request and contributing your problem insects to the greater cause of allergy prevention and treatment!
