Wasp Control & Removal
"Anaphylaxis is a medical emergency. It can be very serious if not treated quickly. If someone has symptoms of anaphylaxis, you should call 999 for an ambulance immediately."
Queen Wasps emerge and start working on new nests in the Spring, as the weather gets warmer. By the Summer months, Wasp nests are working overtime, with an average sized nest having up to 2000-2500 Wasps.
You should never ignore a nest. Wasps will continue to grow as the weather permits and at the end of the season, the queen of each surviving nest will produce between 8 & 20 new queens who will then go and build a new nest nearby. This means that next year you problem is likely to be a lot worse.
A nest begins life the size of a small ball, approximately the size of a golf ball, after several months of growth the nest can get as big as several beach balls clumped together. At this point usually they will have to expand beyond the original cavity they are occupying, this means they will chew through plasterboard and wood in your property in order to expand. Structural damage caused by Wasps can have serious consequences.
In the UK you’re most likely to come across German Wasps (Vespula Germanica). They are yellow and black striped, and have painful stings that can cause allergic reactions.
Wasps usually occupy holes in and around the home, garden sheds, holes in the ground, compost heaps and other little cracks and crevices.

“ Came out the same day to treat two wasps nests that our electrician had found in our loft. Was advised to avoid the loft for the remainder of the day and was then safe to carry on with the electrics the following day. Great service. ”
