Where do Wasp nests occur?
Common locations for Wasps to form their nests are under trees or in bushes on a quiet and secluded area of land, in the cavities within the walls of a property, under the eaves of a house and in a shed or garage. Where a nest is found to be in an inaccessible place or at a height above the ground, a trained pest control operative can access tools to assist in their removal. The nests are usually started in the spring and will resemble a squash ball in size when they are first developing, with the size increasing to the size of an inflatable beach ball as they become established.

To protect occupants from Wasp stings it is a good idea to make sure that rubbish bins are placed in a location not close to the house and to keep the lids firmly closed to prevent the pests being attracted. This process is necessary for the Spring as that is the time the Wasps start to build their nests. Covering windows with fly screens will prevent pests from entering a property when the windows are open.
Wasp or Hornet?
Upon discovering a nest on a property it will probably be a Wasp nest as Hornets are very uncommon in the UK. To distinguish between a Hornet and a Wasp, a Hornet will have brown and yellow stripes while a wasp will be black and yellow. The common wasps found in the UK are 'Vespula vulgaris' and 'Vespula germanica'. If a nest is found on a property, caution should be taken as the Wasp sting can be very painful and in some cases can lead to a severe allergic reaction which may cause a person to be admitted to hospital. Wasp nest removal cost should be seen as an investment rather than a cost as it will prevent any potential problems from Wasp stings. As a nest may contain 3,000 to 5,000 Wasps, Hornet and Wasp control is best left to the professionals. It should be pointed out that Wasps and Hornets should not be confused with Bees. Bees are generally not aggressive and are essential to the pollination of many plants in the UK.
How do professionals remove wasp nests?
To remove get rid of Wasp nest, the professional exterminator will use specialist knowledge and equipment. The clothing and equipment used by a Wasp exterminator will often not be available to the general public. If the Wasps become threatened they produce a pheromone which will attract other Wasps from the nest to attack the 'intruder'. A pest controller will normally apply an amount of insecticide outside the nest which will cause the Wasps to take it inside as they enter. Wasps generally abandon a nest at the end of the Summer and will not return to it in the next year as a queen will create a new nest in the next spring. The lifespan of a 'worker' Wasp is just 6/8 months while a queen will live for up to a year.
Removal of Wasp and Hornet nests is best left the professionals as being stung can be both painful and lead to complications which may result in a hospital stay. A well-trained pest controller has knowledge, skills and access to a range of insecticides which may not be generally available to the public.
