As residential and commercial pest control experts, we have extensive experience in dealing with wasp nest removal and can help you to identify a wasp nest in your property with ease.

If you are finding wasps around your home or commercial building, it could mean you’re sharing your property with a nest. Here’s how to locate a wasp nest and what to do next:


1 – Locating the wasp nest

If you are being plagued by wasps in your garden, there could be several reasons for this. It is most likely the case that it is a wasp nest, but it could also mean there’s a food source that the wasps have found or that there are simply Lyme trees dripping sweet sap nearby.

If you are finding wasps in your home, there could be a wasp nest in your building. Wasps tend to build their nests anywhere that is dry and undisturbed, the pest’s favourite places include: lofts, air bricks and in wall cavities.

If you think there is a wasp nest in or around your property, you will need to stand still and watch for a few minutes. During this time, you will need to try and identify the ‘flight paths’ of the wasps; by doing this, you can determine where the wasps are concentrated, which could lead you to their nest.


2 – What to do if you’ve identified a wasp nest

Never attempt to remove the wasp nest yourself. It’s vitally important that you contact a professional pest control specialist immediately as a single sting can be extremely painful and, in some cases, may result in Anaphylaxis shock.

Once a pest control expert has confirmed that it is a wasp nest you are dealing with, before entering the space, they will put on a full protective suit, mask and gloves to ensure their safety from potential stings. The area is then treated with an insecticide, which will begin working to eradicate the nest.
