Wasp nests are normally built under shelter in areas such as eaves and windowsills, however, they can also be built on palm leaves and in trees or shrubs. A fully mature paper wasp nest may have up to 20 to 30 adults living in it at the one time.
One important thing to know about the removal of wasp nests is that they cannot be taken away straight after a treatment. This is because foraging wasps may take several days before they return. This means we need to wait until every last wasp has come back to the nest to ensure they’re all eradicated.
Wasp control for your home
As is the case with many pests, prevention is preferable to treatment. Removing wasps once they’re established can be more difficult, due to the risk that their stings pose to adults, minors and more importantly allergy sufferers.
If you’re concerned about wasps invading your property, the first thing you should do is get in touch with our expert SAYFER technicians. Once on site, we’ll explore the areas of your home that could potentially harbour wasps ensuring that you, your family and your pets are kept at a safe distance before we begin.
Upon locating the nest, we’ll undertake the necessary precautions to ensure we don’t trigger a swarm reaction with our activity. As soon as we deem the situation to be under control, we can then apply a suitable pesticide to eradicate the entire colony.
