The Necessity Of Wasp Nest Removal Services

Wasps can sometimes set up their nests in homes and businesses. While wasps will usually keep to themselves if unprovoked, many wasp nests are in locations where avoiding human-wasp interactions is impossible.

Wasps can be dangerous. Not only are their stings painful, but they can also be life-threatening for people with a tendency to go into anaphylactic shock.

What’s more, one angry wasp can cause an entire nest to go into a stinging frenzy by releasing pheromones into the environment. What seems like an isolated sting can soon turn into an all-out attack on anything in the vicinity, putting people at risk.

The best way to reduce the chance that your family, customers, or colleagues will be stung by a wasp is to call in professional wasp nest removal services. Wasp nest removal services use specialised equipment to eliminate wasp nests safely when they threaten the surrounding human population.

 

Should You Try To Remove A Wasp Nest Yourself?

Wasp nests can contain tens of thousands of individuals, each of whom can deliver a potentially fatal sting. If you (or anybody who might come into contact with the wasps) has a history of anaphylaxis, then it’s vital to call for the help of professionals.

Professional wasp removal experts take several precautions to avoid injury during the wasp removal process. First, all professional wasp removal technicians are British Pest Control Association (BPCA)-certified, proving that they have the necessary skills and knowledge to remove wasps from your property. Second, professionals wear special protective clothing, which prevents wasps from stinging. Finally, professionals only use approved wasp treatments designed to preserve the viability of the species while eliminating wasp nests from private property.

Should you try to remove a wasp nest yourself? You can use do-in-yourself wasp nest removal products, but you should only do it yourself in certain circumstances.

For instance, experts recommend that you only attempt DIY methods if the wasp nest is small. Large wasp nests can release clouds of wasps that can easily overcome a person. If you discover a nest in the early Spring, it should be about the size of a golfball, making it easy to remove.

You should only attempt DIY methods if there is minimal activity around the nest itself, and the wasps are not active. The more active they are, the more dangerous. Finally, only remove wasps if you are not allergic to wasp stings; otherwise you could be putting your life at risk.

 

How To Remove A Wasp Nest

The process of removing a wasp nest usually involves buying an insecticide spray. These sprays, however, are generally only useful when the wasp colony is small during the Spring. Spraying a large wasp nest with insecticide is likely to be ineffective because of the sheer number of individuals that comprise large wasp nests.

Professional wasp control experts have the tools and the necessary equipment to safely remove wasp nests without exposing anybody to risk of injury or death. If you notice a wasp nest in the summer, professional removal services are your best option.
