Signs Of A Wasp Nest

A large amount of wasps in and around your house could suggest that there is a nest nearby. Nests can be found in many different areas including sheds, garages, lofts, under decking and up high on your roof. They can cause anxiety for a number of people, even restricting social functions and gatherings.

Wasps are mainly active during the warm summer months and at the peak of summer, a nest can contain as many as 10,000 wasps! A wasp sting can be quite painful, even life threatening for some so you should never attempt to remove a nest yourself.

Female wasps can sting more than once and the only way to reduce the chances of getting stung is to remove the nest itself.

How to Prevent Wasps

There are a number of steps you can take to prevent a wasp nest forming.

Checking your home, business or garden early is key to preventing a wasp infestation as if you can catch the nest early, there will be less wasps and in turn a quick wasp nest removal. The deeper we delve into summer, the more aggressive wasps become so early detection is vital.

Places you should look for nests are:

 

In order to deter wasps, you could try the following

1. Ensure that you keep your bins shut and make sure all outside bins are secured properly to ensure no wasps can enter as they thrive on rotting food.

2. Try to distance the bins away from your property, especially near doors and windows.

3. Avoid opening doors and windows which will prevent wasps entering your property.

4. If a nest is visible or there’s signs of wasps, keep everyone safe by staying clear of the areas.

5. Avoid bright coloured clothing or floral patterns as wasps can mistake this for a flower.

6. Remove any sources of food from your kitchen worktops and try not to leave pet food outside.

7. Pay great attention to the kitchen or anywhere food is prepared as they can often hide in drink bottles, jam jars etc.

8. Introducing herbs in and around your property can help as wasps do not like herbs such as: thyme, spearmint, and eucalyptus.

9. Install several wasps traps to try to control them in places such as the garden.

10. Remove any unused boxes in places such as lofts, sheds or garages as these are perfect locations for wasps to build their nests.

11. Install window and door screens to prevent wasps entering your property. The smell of foods, especially sweet substances will lure in many insects; wasps are particularly attracted to sweet foods in late summer.

12. Ripe fruits or vegetables can attract wasps into your garden. Try to harvest them as soon as possible.

13. Avoid outdoor compost piles; if not possible, try to do them from inside.

14. Wasps strip wood to build their nests. Where possible, use a protective wood treatment product to prevent this from happening.

 

wasp nest removal in treeThe most effective wasp control solution is to make sure your property is structurally sound, ensuring there’s no cracks or holes. Walls and roofs should be inspected regularly and you should seal any opening immediately Use insect mesh to cover air bricks and cable openings as this will prevent them from entering in the first instance.

If you discover a wasp nest, we always advise that you contact a pest control professional to carry out the removal. DIY wasp nest removal could result in a large number of stings and for some people this could prove fatal.

The common wasp species

The UK is home to a variety of wasp species, the most prominent being the common wasp (vespula vulgaris).

Wasp Facts:

  1. Common wasps are easily identified by their classic black and yellow stripes and tend to be the wasps that buzz around your food during picnics! Although wasps are an annoyance to us, they do play an important role in controlling plant pests. There is a chance that wasps can spread certain diseases due to the fact that they feed on rotting food.
  2. Wasps can form nests in places such as; soil banks, wall cavities, roof spaces, sheds, garages and trees. Surprisingly, nests are formed of paper which is in fact chewed wood and can become very large.
  3. The common wasp can grow up to 2cms and is generally active between the months of April to October. They live in large colonies inside paper type nests where the queen reproduces. Eggs are laid by the queen in hexagon shaped cells throughout spring and the summer time, laying many thousands.
  4. The loyal workers look after the young that the queen produces and the larvae are fed chewed insects and spiders. Wasp colonies will only survive the length of one season in the United Kingdom as a new colony is started each spring time by overwintered queens.
  5. British wasps can become aggressive if they feel they are under attack. When you are stung by a wasp, a unique pheromone is released and this lets other wasps know that you are a danger. This is turn causes more wasps to join in the attack which gives them power in numbers.
  6. If you are under attack, the most important thing to do is not to panic! Wasps are highly sensitive to movement and the more you flap and wave your arms, the more you are perceived as a threat to them. You should move quickly in a straight line away from the wasp and eventually it will give up.
  7. If you have spotted a wasps nest in or around your property and would like it removed, Pestcure offer a range of wasp control solutions at unbeatable prices. Our trained wasp exterminators will eliminate your wasps nest in one single visit and will restore order to your home.

What Happens If The Wasps Come Back Or The Treatment Doesn't Work Fully?

As the nest is completely removed from your premises, the problem is 100% solved. It is possible however for new nests to form which would then be classed as a separate nest and would require another treatment.

How to Get Rid of Wasps

There are a number of steps you can take to locate and get rid of wasps in your property quickly. Ultimately, the final step of nest removal should always be carried out by a trained pest control technician. Although not recommended, If you do decide to attempt removal yourself, the following tips will help:

1. Do not swat at wasps! This could trigger pheromones which will alert other members of the colony that you’re a threat and in turn you could get stung many times.

2. If you do attempt to remove a nest yourself, make sure you wear suitable protective clothing, Bee suits are fit for purpose and they will protect you from getting stung.

3. If wasps are present in your home or garden, then there’s a good chance a nest is nearby, Locating their nest is crucial to success.

4. Try to Watch the wasps carefully as sometimes they can lead you straight to their nests. Be vigilant and look for any areas with increased activity.

5. Once the nest is located, you can get a better idea of where they are coming from. Do not attempt to burn or waterlog nests as this can cause significant damage to building structures and prove to be quite dangerous.

6. Do not block entry or exit points to their nests as this can cause them to spread to other areas of your property. The nest needs to be destroyed in order to get rid of the wasps. Some nests cannot be removed due to their location, i.e behind wall cavities, but as long as the nest is destroyed then they are harmless.

Wasps will not reuse a previous nest. Getting rid of a wasps nest yourself is not recommended; it can be dangerous and in some cases, fatal. Anaphylactic shock can be caused by wasp venom and it’s possible to suffer a serious reaction or even death (although this is quite rare).
