End Of The Summer:

At the end of the summer season, worker wasp removal return to the nest and die. Only the queen survives.

How To Get Rid Of Wasps?

The location of a wasp nest removalon your property, or nearby, is usually the reason why you have a wasp problem. If you can get rid of the wasp removaland its nest early on in the spring, you can really help to avoid a serious problem in the height of summer, when the nest has many more wasps. You should only attempt to use DIY products under the following conditions:

  • If the nest is small, on your property and easy to access.
  • If you discovered the nest in early spring and the nest is still small (size of a golf or tennis ball).
  • If there is minimal wasp activity around the nest.
  • If you are NOT allergic to wasp stings.

If the nest is within a wall cavity or similar enclosed space it may not be possible to remove it at all. The good news is that the same nest is never reused by a new queen the following year. A new nest may be built in the same location though, if it continues to offer shelter, protection and easy access to the outside.

Identifying A Wasp Nest:

Wasps make their nests from chewed wood pulp and saliva, giving them distinctive papery walls. Nests are usually built in sheltered spots with easy access to the outside. You can often find wasp nests in wall cavities, roof spaces, under eaves, in bird boxes, sheds or garages and to remove them you need professional wasp nest removal. To locate a wasp nest, carefully watch the flight path of the returning worker wasps to your property or garden. This is much easier during the summer months as wasp numbers increase.

How Big Can A Wasp Nest Be?

At first, a wasp nest will start off very small, around the size of a golf ball or a walnut, when the Queen wasp begins to build a nest in the spring. During the summer months the nest will grow as the number of wasp’s increases. The nest can grow to the size of a football or larger. It is best to treat a wasp nest removalearlier in the year before numbers increase and the wasps become more aggressive in late summer.

How To Prevent A Wasp Nest?

There are steps you can take which can help prevent wasps building a nest in your property or garden:

  • Regular maintenance to ensure all cracks and potential entry points are sealed.
  • Fly screens on doors and windows prevent wasps entering your property.
  • Make sure external rubbish bins have securely fitted lids, so worker wasps can not feed on any food scraps.
  • Wasp traps (also known as wasp pots) in your garden that can be purchased from a local DIY store or online. You can make one yourself by using a empty bottle with water and sugar solution.

However, the best course of wasp nest removal is by using a professional pest control treatment to effectively eliminate the nest.

How To Get Rid Of Wasps?

With warmer days and longer nights as we enjoy those lazy summer afternoons, this also brings rise to an annoying summer time pest: wasps.

  1. Batting, whacking and swatting that annoying wasp can make things worse. When an individual social wasp is disturbed or feels threatened, they release a distress signal as a pheromone to alert their colony.This alerts the other worker wasps that their nest may be under threat. The wasps will appear as a mass to defend the nest when threatened, and to some this gathering can be mistaken for a ‘swarm’ similar to that produced by honeybees. It is recommended not to try get wasp removalyourself as it can be dangerous, as wasps will become aggressive when defending their nest.
  2. It is always easier to prevent a problem before it happens, rather than to wait for wasps to invade your home or garden. Quite often, a Queen will return to the same area where a nest was built previously, simply because it’s the most suitable place, however she will construct a new nest rather than re-use an old one. If you have had problems with wasp nest removalin the past, check your property early in key spots to catch the nest construction early.

Wasp Prevention Tips:

Early treatment of a wasp nest removal will help to keep you and your family safe from painful stings. Making changes to your behaviour and how you handle food and drink outdoors can also help to deter this stinging pest.

  • Check for nestsCheck your home and garden in early spring for nests, early on they will be walnut or golf ball in size – early small nests have fewer wasps and are easier to treat quickly. Look for nests in lofts, garages, sheds, cavity walls or under eaves.
  • Secure binsEnsure outside bins have tightly fitting lids. Keep bins at a distance from doors and windows so wasps are not attracted to the contents.
  • Keep windows and doors shutTo prevent wasps entering inside your home.
  • Keep safeIf you have spotted a nest, make sure you keep children and pets away from the area.
  • What you wearWearing bright colours or floral patterns will attract wasps as you may look like a flower and they may become curious looking for nectar.
  • Avoid PerfumesWasps are more attracted to sweeter smells towards the end of summer. Reduce the amount of strong scents and perfumes.
  • Remove food sourcesWasps are attracted to protein foods at the end of spring and beginning of summer, so remove any food left outside including pet food. Towards the end of summer, wasps begin to become attracted by sweet smelling foods. Wasps imprint food sources therefore will continue to search within the same area after food has been removed.
  • BirdhousesLine the under roof of the birdhouse with aluminium foil or rub the under roof with regular soap (one application of this will last the entire wasp season)
  • HerbsWasps do not like aromatic scents; specifically spearmint, thyme, and eucalyptus. Planting these outside can help repels pest wasps.

Using DIY Products:

If you already have a problem with wasps, there are some DIY products available, including wasp repellents, which may offer some relief.

  • Wait until late evening or night time, when worker and scout wasps have returned to the nest.
  • Always wear protective clothing, goggles, gloves and a dust mask when dealing with a wasp nest removal, however small it may be.
  • Use a DIY spray specifically designed for treating wasp nest removal, such as Technokill pest solutionswasp nest removalfoam.
  • Carefully read and follow the instructions on the spray can, ensuring you do not stand directly under the nest.
  • Once sprayed, leave the nest for a minimum of 24 hours before careful removal – a wasp nest can be very fragile.
  • Seal the nest in two thick plastic bags (double bagged) and dispose of it in an outside rubbish bin with a secure lid.

Some Necessary Precautions for Wasp Nest Removal:

  • A wasp nest removalshould not be performed directly after being professionally treated with insecticide. It can take several days for foraging worker wasps to return to the nest.
  • As wasps return after wasp removal; the nest they will also be contaminated by the treatment and die off, thus ensuring the whole colony is effectively treated.
  • You should never try to treat a nest on your own, especially if you think you are allergic to insect stings.
