Wasp/Hornet Nest

Wasps are one of the most feared and aggressive pests. They attack and sting, sometimes causing an allergic reaction that has resulted in death in severe cases. They will attack unprovoked although it is generally if they feel threatened.

Children and pets can be a particular worry if there are wasps as they won't always recognise the danger.

Common wasps will generally build their nests inside somewhere undisturbed and protected from the elements. This makes loft spaces/lofts, garden sheds and air bricks and ideal choice for them. They are also known to build in the ground too if the area is right for them.

They build their nests by chewing up wood and mixing it with their saliva. This nest material is very strong, lightweight and waterproof.

​​​​Treating a wasp nest can be very dangerous. Wasps inside the nest will feel threatened and often become aggressive. This could cause them to sting you and others as they defend their nest and young.

It is highly recommended that a professional pest controller is employed to treat the nest as they will have the technical knowledge, equipment and insecticides that are not available to the general public. They will also have the tools to reach them, even in the most inaccessible looking places.
