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 Would You Get Rid of a Wasps Nest

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:
  1. Attic/loft space
  2. Garage and shed
  3. Air vents and wall cavities or under eaves
  4. Trees in your garden/ bird boxes
  5. Soil banks
  6. Holes in fascia/ soffit boards
  7. Cracks in building structures
  8. Deep bushes
  9. Underneath your patio/decking
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.

The 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.

Pestcure Ltd offer a range of wasp nest removal solutions at unbeatable prices, often on the same day that you call! Our trained wasp exterminators will remove your nest safely, allowing you to return to normal life as soon as possible.

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).

Been hearing scuttling for about a week until two nights ago when it sounded like someone was breaking into our kitchen. We went in to find a huge rat running around the surfaces. The next day we called James from pest cure and he was here within a few hours. During the visit he located the hole the rat was coming through & even saw the rat. By the time he left the kitchen was put back perfectly with two heavy duty traps hidden by the hole (non of those Amazon pieces of plastic). Although he said it could take a week, that night we heard a thwack and saw a dead rat in the morning. Called up James and he said he’d be here the same day to pick up the rat and fill the hole.For something that can make you feel so disgusting in a house, James sorted us perfectly and I highly recommend Pestcure. 10/10.

James is a very professional and knowledgeable pest controller. We are currently using his services for a bed bug related issue and he had been brilliant throughout the process, always able to fit in an appointment at convenient times. Would highly recommend him.

Unfortunately my issue with Mice in my flat was not resolved. James told me I had a “mild infestation” which I assumed would have been easy for a professional to deal with.Unfortunately, a bit more than a month after James’s initial visit, we still see mice in the flat.James was professional and explained that that there are holes in my walls which are large and difficult to reach which I understand and appreciate. Additionally, James was very responsive and came out to the flat a number of times to investigate the situation which is highly appreciated.However, I hired Pestcure to help me sort out an issue, paid their fee, but after a number of visits the issue continues to persist.Response to reply: I don’t understand why this is so disappointing to you. Imagine my disappointment then when I still see rodents in my flat after I paid your fee. I did mention that I appreciate the fact that you came out multiple times and I did mention that James tried his best. Also the claim that I did not close the holes is ridiculous and undermines your response. This is because I could not close the holes while James had traps and other rodenticides down there. I had to wait until James’s last visit before I took action with another professional.

Had bedbugs. Appointment was arranged quickly with Pestcure and James came for 3 treatments to get rid of our itchy friends.Was always easy to arrange the next step and James was always flexible and also let me know exactly when he was likely to arrive. James was always extremely pleasant and informative.Most importantly, the difference has been great and it’s been a fortnight (before the 3rd treatment) since we last saw a bedbug.

I can honestly say that pestcure is one of the best companies I have dealt with. My horses stable was plagued with rats and I was at my wits end! James knows his stuff 100% and I am so grateful that my horses food is no longer being eaten by rodents. Thank you so much Pestcure!

I would highly recommend Pest Cure. James provided excellent service and advice. He was very pragmatic and reassuring. The costs to deal with a mouse issue were very reasonable. The follow up was excellent and he went above and beyond to prevent further incursions by sealing up holes and grates. Overall, excellent, pleasant and professional service.

Highly recommend this company. James was so helpful and invested so much time with us to sort our problem. James’s was always on the other end of the phone to provide support and information and really cares about his clients to get the problem solved. Just want to say thank you to James as he helped me through a very challenging time!

Fantastic experience, James is v knowledgeable and has all the lot needed to remove any issues. Thinks about the client and is reasonably priced unlike other big big competitors who I feel don't have the same skill set. Would definitely re use although I'm hoping I won't need to!So my original review above was last year's issue, this year I had a larger rodent problem, called out James and yet again he's resolved the issue.Issues arose due to rodents living under an outbuilding. James' initial reaction was that it was a drainage issue. He was so thorough, put 2 x cameras down below the outbuilding, removed the decking himself and refused to leave the issue until it was resolved. He came out for 5 visits and after activity seen on camera for over 5 weeks, I've now been 11 days without an issue. This chap is the best in the business full stop, he's fitted drain valves (to stop the rat issue) and persistent rodent bait to eliminate the issue. If the issue comes back I know who to call, but I am at ease now because he has solved the source of the problem and has guided me on how to prevent it in the future. Absolutely brilliant experience and 5 stars really doesn't do his service justice.

James is an extremely professional and kind individual who explains what the problem is and gives his honest opinion. He follows up with good solutions and walks you through the how, what and why. Furthermore, he's helpful throughout the process and is happy to take any further questions or concerns. We used his services for rodent issues and the situation has been improving. Obviously some of it is down to construction issues, but he's more than willing to make you understand the underlying reasons as well. Would highly recommend his service.
