What can you expect from our wasp nest treatment services?
The safest and most successful option to get rid of a wasp nest is to a book a professional treatment service. We offer tailored solutions to determine a targeted approach to deal with any wasp nest in your home or garden.
If you experience a significant number of wasps on your property, it is likely to be caused by a wasp nest nearby. Wasps are highly defensive over their nest and can attack as a colony if disturbed or feel threatened. Our operatives are trained to use specialist products and application equipment to quickly destroy a wasp nest. We also give advice to help manage your surroundings to reduce wasp activity, where no nest is immediately apparent, to prevent the nuisance insects from ‘moving in’.
Before a wasp nest treatment, our operative will use their expertise to confirm the insect species. It is easy to mistake wasps for other flying insects, especially honeybees. The next stage is to evaluate the risks and take a planned approach to address the issue using specialist products. Our operatives ensure safeguard measures are in place during any treatment.
Direct treatment: Once the wasp nest has been located, our operative injects the treatment product directly into the centre of the nest to kill the nesting wasps. It takes approximately 48 hours for the entire colony to die within the nest, as time is needed for all the wasps to return.
Indirect treatment: If our operative is unable to safely access the core of the wasp nest, the treatment is applied to the entry point of the nest. Common entry points to a nest are cracks and cervices in the roof and the side of walls.
Wasp nest removal: In some circumstances, after treating the wasp nest and killing the colony, the nest may need to be removed for safety reasons. Our operative will be able to advise you prior to your treatment the best course of action to take. If the treated wasp nest does not need be removed from your property, you can be assured by the fact that the dead nest is safe and it will not be used by other wasp colonies in the future.
After the treatment, our knowledgeable operative will provide guidance to prevent future wasps invading your home and how to make your surroundings less attractive to the stinging insects.
