Wasp Nest Treatment
Our qualified Wasp Nest technicians will consider the most appropriate approach and different treatments use depending on where the wasp nest is located, the behaviour of the nest and wasps and the risk given the area of the activity.
Wasp Nest Removal
If you can see the whole wasp nest structure for example in a shed, then treatment and the wasp nest removal may be the best option.
This is done by using strong powder insecticides or potent sprays, once the wasp nest is dead it can be cut down and removed in heavy duty chemical resistant bags for disposal via hazardous waste collections.
Entry Point Wasp Nest Treatment
If you are not able to see the wasps’ nest itself, but instead can see the constant wasp traffic using an entry point such as a hole in a wall or under the eaves. It is possible to use insecticide dusts which will be inserted directly into the wasp’s entry point, the wasps will then walk through this dust and disperse the dust around the inside of the wasps nest. This insecticide powder is highly toxic to insects but much less so to mammals. Wasp nest entry point treatments usually provide complete eradication of the wasp infestation within a couple of hours.

During this survey they will consider any risks to domestic pets, other wildlife and contact from other humans not aware of the potential risk and then carry out a risk assessment and put in place necessary precautions and give you expert advice.
Q: Are wasps aggressive?
A: Only female wasps can sting and will only do so when provoked. However, if you get too close to a nest, you will almost certainly be investigated by the guard wasps and likely to get stung by a wasp. When a wasp stings it will also emit a pheromone that signals to the other wasps to attack immediately! This is what will have happened when you hear of people being chased hundreds of meters by a swarm of wasps!
Q: How many wasps are inside a wasp's nest?
A: This largely depends on the size of the wasp nest, with some wasp nest's housing as many as 10,000 individual wasps during the end of the summer. Such large nests, however, are uncommon, with the average nest wasp nest usually housing around 4000 to 6000 wasps in the summer.
Q: Can wasps’ nest in the ground?
A: Yes, wasps do build nests in the ground, a queen wasp will often enter mouse holes or mole tunnels looking for a suitable site to build her nest! Wasp nests in the ground often catch gardeners unaware and they are regularly trodden on! The same goes for wall cavities, openings behind wooden sleepers, and any other area that is large enough to sustain a large wasp colony.
Q: Does the wasp's nest have to be removed?
A: No. Wasp's nest doesn't have to be removed after treatment if it is inaccessible or too dangerous to remove. It is however advised that if a wasp nest is visible and safely accessed that it is removed, there are other risks associated with leaving a wasp nest in place after treatment. If the wasps’ nest is very large it can cause a smell when decomposing, wasp nests can leak fluid which can stain walls or ceilings and the wasps’ nest can also provide a food source for many other insect pests. So, it isn't essential, but it is advised.
