One of the most feared and potentially aggressive pests we face, Wasps not only threaten a nasty sting, but can cause allergic reactions in rare cases which can be deadly.
If you find a Wasp nest in or near your home, it is always best to call for professional help in treating it.
This is because Wasps are social creatures that can 'call for help' if they feel the nest is threatened, creating a dangerous situation for anyone in the vicinity.
Identifying a Wasp Nest
In Spring, as the weather gets warmer, the Queen Wasp will emerge from hibernation and begin building her colony and nest.
At this stage, the nest will still be quite small and easy to miss. It is important to check for Wasp nests during the Spring months because the earlier it is found, the smaller and less aggressive the colony will be.
Wasp nests are made from papier mache type material and can vary in size and shape. They can be found anywhere the Wasps decide to take shelter, however some of the most common locations are:
This will help you to identify the location of the nest, but please only approach with extreme caution as larger nests can contain up to 5000 wasps.
Wasps will also be drawn to light so the easiest way to detect them is often to switch a light on where possible, for example in a loft or garage.
Professional and Permanent Treatment
Our Wasp Control Treatment can be delivered quickly and effectively by our Fully Qualified Technicians, using professional grade insecticide and specialist equipment, as well as a wealth of knowledge and experience.
The nest will only need to be treated once and this will ensure that all wasps belonging to this nest will be exterminated. Wasps will not return to the nest once the colony has been eradicated, so only in rare circumstances would we recommend a need to remove the nest itself.
Using a Professional Pest Control Service to get rid of your wasp problem will provide a safe and permanent solution at an affordable price.

BEES VS WASPS
Bees are a beneficial species and not usually considered a pest. They are protected under law so it is very important to identify the difference between Bees and Wasps. If safe to do so, a photograph will enable us to identify the species.
Bees cannot be treated with insecticide, but we are able to offer advice. Alternatively, please contact the British Beekeepers Association.
