Old & Dormant Wasp Nest Removal

Removal Of Old or Dormant Wasp Nests

The papery nests should be removed after about two weeks of the treatment. 

The old nests should be removed wherever possible or they can become problematic later on. We get many calls from plumbers, electricians and tradesmen who have come across nests in roof spaces and have delayed works due to a dormant or old nest.

An old nest is also a fire risk. If the nests are near down lights or ceiling lights where the hot element is in the roof/wall cavity, it may catch fire. Wasps mix wood and plant material with their saliva to create a ‘papery’ substance which can be highly flammable, especially when it is old and dry.

If you have any further questions then please do call us.

Why use us for wasp control?

  • Wasps can be fatal if the nest is aggravated.

  • Cause a fire risk -we have been to jobs where wasps have caught fire within downlighters (spot lights fitted in the ceiling/loft)

  • Multiply quickly, slowly becoming an issue later in the season.

  • Enter vulnerable areas in the property later in the season for light and warmth.

  • Live until Jan or February if the nest is large.

  • If left create queens that will hibernate in the roof until the following season.

  • Increase in the number of nests you will get year on year if not treated.

Insect Control & Prevention

In the UK there are over 20,000 orders of insects

It is vital for us to understand what insect you have. Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to know – we can diagnose some insect problems over the phone – however in most cases we would carry out a specialist consultation and survey to provide the following benefits:

  • We cover a massive range of insect control from fleas, bed bugs, clothes moths, carpet beetles, and woodworm.
  • With all insects, it’s important to find their nests and what they are living on. We will treat the insects using the correct method but also look to kill the eggs and larvae.
  • Many companies will just treat the areas quickly & cheaply, and do nothing to combat the eggs or source of infestation. It is impossible to control infestations without knowing why they are there in the first place!
