Wasp Nest Removal FAQ's

What's the Difference Between Wasps & Bees?

This is a common question we are asked, the biggest difference between wasps and bees is that wasps are carnivorous, they feed on other insects and meat. Wasps feed their larvae with proteins to fuel their growth, this is not something that bees do.

Can wasp's nest in the ground?

Yes, wasps will excavate chambers under the ground to build their nests, a queen wasp will often enter field mouse, bank vole holes or mole runs looking for a suitable site to build the nest! Wasp nests in the ground are very dangerous, as they are much more aggressive. Often gardeners will get too close while mowing the lawn or trimming a hedge, completely unaware of the wasp nest! When attacked by a wasp nest in the ground the wasps can follow for hundreds of meters stinging their victim.

How many wasps are inside a wasp's nest?

This largely depends on the species of wasp and size of the nest, the most common wasps in the UK have a population inside nest of up to around 6-10,000 individual wasps during the height of activity. These nests can be over 1.2 meter in diameter!

Does the wasp's nest have to be removed?

We get asked this all the time, and the answer is no. The wasp's nest doesn't need to be removed after treatment if isn't accessible for our technician or if the nest is in a dangerous location. It is however advised that if a wasp nest is visible and safely accessed that it is removed, there are other risks associated with leaving a wasp nest in place after treatment.

How Long Does A Wasp Nests Last?

Again another very common question, wasps will never reuse an old wasp nest, so after the wasp season is over that nest will be abandoned and all the fertile queens produced from that nesting season will leave and create their own wasp nest the following season. Wasp's are not like Bees which will take over abandoned bee hives or honey comb.

Our wasp control technician in Hampshire will survey the infestation to identify if it is indeed a wasp's nest, sometimes people mistake Honey Bees or even Bumble bees for wasps. Once our pest control technician has identified it is a wasp nest, he will consider the best way to safely remove or eradicate the wasp's nest. Consider any risks to domestic pets, or non-target wildlife such as bats.

Wasp Nest Treatment

There are a number of different treatments to consider depending on where the wasp nest is located, is it near a water course, are the wasps nesting in a hole in the ground? If they are the ground cannot be contaminated. Can you see they nest or just where the wasps are entering?

Wasp Nest Removal

If the wasp nest is visible and accessible for example in a shed, or in a garden shrub then destroying and removing the wasp nest will be the best treatment.

This is done by using strong liquid chemicals or strong aerosol sprays, once the wasp nest is dead it can be cut down and removed in heavy duty chemical resistant bags for disposal via hazardous waste collections.

Non-Toxic Bee Friendly Wasp Nest Removals

If you have a wasp nest which is very close it a water course or pond then the use if any insecticide could cause serious adverse effects to the aquatic life, even just the smallest amount of insecticide dust (a wasp coated with powder dying in the water) could have devastating consequences! Likewise, if there is a wasp nest in a hole in the ground, you cannot contaminate the ground with insecticide powder! Instead, the nest should be treated with a non-toxic treatment. Our 3 non-toxic approaches to wasp control are:

1: the use of non-toxic abrasive powders which if placed directly into a wasp nest or wasp entry point can prove very effective. We often use this where wasp are nesting very close to rivers.

2: You can dig the wasps nest out of the ground, with a hoover over the entry hole to capture most of the wasps coming out of the attack! This method is effective but can only be carried out by professionals!

3: The installation of wasp traps can have a huge impact on wasp numbers if a nest isn't located or if it is too dangerous to treat.

Entry Point Wasp Nest Treatment

If you are not able to access the wasps nest itself, but instead can see the constant wasp traffic using an entry point such as a hole in a wall or under the eaves. It is possible to use insecticide dusts which will be inserted directly into the wasp's entry point, the wasps will then walk through this dust and disperse the dust around the inside of the wasps nest. This insecticide powder is highly toxic to insects but much less so to mammals. Wasp nest entry point treatments usually provide complete eradication of the wasp infestation within a couple of hours.
