Wasps are a common sight across Britain during the summer months. From buzzing around barbecues to swooping over sweet drinks, these winged insects can become a problem when they make a home in the wrong location.
Wasps’ nests are amazing structures but having one on your doorstep can become problematic. Whether you’re a home or business owner, wasps are not just a nuisance either. For those with allergies, a wasp sting can be fatal.
If you’re worried about a wasps’ nest on your property, it’s important to call a wasp pest control expert. Our fully qualified and friendly team of technicians are experienced at removing wasps’ nests, ensuring that these stinging insects aren’t a problem anymore.
How To Tell If You Have A Wasp Infestation
Have you noticed a large number of wasps in your garden or around your property? It could be a sign that there is a wasps’ nest nearby.
If you’re unsure, our wasp pest control team are experienced in finding the source of your wasp problem. They’ll help to identify where the wasps are coming from and how to safely remove the wasps from your space.
In the meantime, it could be a good idea to look for the nest. If it’s safe to do so, try to follow a worker wasp to see if they return to a nest. If you do notice a nest (which is usually a yellow to brown, but can be any colour or shape), be careful not to approach it. Wasps will sting when threatened and may call for back up from the hive.
Wasps tend to build their nests in sheltered areas. Common locations can include:
- In wall cavities
- Under eaves
- Beneath trees or bushes
- In sheds
Why Should You Remove A Wasps’ Nest?
While wasps aren’t a problem in the countryside or in unpopulated areas, they can become a nuisance and a danger in homes and businesses.Wasp stings can be very painful and unlike bees, they can (and often will!) continue to sting. These stings can be particularly harmful to children, the elderly and those with allergies. For people with serious allergies, wasp stings can cause anaphylaxis – a condition that can be fatal.
Wasps’ nests can also quickly multiply in size. Nests that seem small and unproblematic in the spring can soon grow to a hive of over 5,000 wasps in the summer.

Wasps’ nest removal should always be left to the professionals. The health hazards that wasps pose can make it dangerous to remove yourself. After all, you wouldn’t want 5,000 angry wasps stinging you!
