Bickershaw Wasp Nest Removal
An indication that a property has a hornet or wasp problem may be due to the increase in the number of wasps seen locally or it may be that the construction of a nest within a property has led to 'strange' noises emanating from a wall or ceiling void.

Why "do it yourself" is a bad idea
There are many problems that a capable person can deal with by themselves. However, when it comes to an effort to get rid of wasp nests it is prudent to employ the services of a wasp exterminator. The reason for this is because a wasp can give a very painful sting and a wasp nest can contain between three and five thousand wasps. The consequences of making a mistake when dealing with such a problem could be catastrophic. A single wasp, when in 'defence mode' will emit a pheromone which will attract the other occupants of a nest to assist. Even a single sting can lead to a person having to be hospitalised if they are prone to suffering an allergic reaction to the wasp venom.
What will a hornet and wasp control expert do?
