Wasp and Wasp Nest Removal Services

Wildside Management Pest Control Services are very experienced in the treatment of wasps and nests.

 

Between the months of May and November is when we tend to notice a higher number of wasp infestations in commercial and domestic properties. As the autumn/winter season approaches and daylight decreases, wasps become attracted to electric lights inside which they can confuse with sunrise.

 

If you notice a number wasps or bees regularly entering your building, it is highly likely that there is a nest nearby. Often there is a hole somewhere in the building which is their main route of access but you should not attempt to block it. This may cause them to become more aggressive and it will not help get rid of the thriving nest.

 

Due to their naturally aggressive behaviour when a colony is under threat, we would always recommend not handling this pest control task yourself. In addition if swarms are located in difficult places like chimneys, greater consideration must be given to a number of factors prior to any treatment.

 

Call our team in Lincolnshire today and we can professionally and effectively manage the infestation.

Bee and Wasp Facts

  • A single wasps' nest can contain up to 2,000 wasps.

 

  • Nests are commonly found in roof spaces, airbricks, cavity walls, sheds, compost heaps, trees and hedges.

 

  • Wasps have black and yellow bands and may nest in trees, hedges, verges, etc. They can be alarming when disturbed and can inflict painful stings.

 

  • Bumblebees are large and hairy. There are many different species so a positive I.D can be difficult. They nest in various places, but rarely sting and are important pollinators.

 

  • There are many types of bees, but honeybees can cause problems during the summer months due to swarming. Easy access swarms may be collected by beekeepers and hived.

 

  • Masonry bees are not social bees but may congregate in a suitable area, i.e. soft masonry. The best solution may be to carry out repointing.

 

  • Adult wasp workers prefer sweet foods and grubs exude a sweet liquid which adult wasps eat. Toward the end of summer the queen stops laying eggs and grubs hatch into adults. It is at this time that wasps become a nuisance.

 

  • Only newly mated wasp queens survive over the winter. The queen starts a new nest in spring and as the nest expands, adult wasps bring prey which consists mainly of other insects.
