If you see a Wasp nest they are usually found in hedges, holes in the ground, sheds or more commonly, in your loft. This is of course a defensive and protective method to make sure us humans cannot reach them! It’s never a good idea to disrupt a Wasp nest. Wasps can become very aggressive and will attack quickly if they feel that their colony is being threatened. The warmer the weather, the more highly aggressive Wasps can be!

Wasp Treatment Program

Wasp nest removal is carried out by a technician who treats the nest with a contact insecticide dust which is applied directly into the nest or at its entry point. Typical time to kill off the nest is usually within 24 hours. We use fully protected bee suit so that we treat the nest without any immediate danger of being stung. Safety is a big priority for our customers and technicians. There may also be several different nests in and around your property, so we’ll provide a thorough inspection to make sure there aren’t existing nests present on your property that need removal.
