Wasps Nest Removal Ascot Berkshire (SL5): As first springtime and then summer arrives in Ascot, we all tend to spend more time outside in the open air. However, this coincides with increased insect activity and we're likely to see more hornets and wasps around our gardens and homes. Wasps by and large aren't that much of an issue for most people in Ascot, and their benefits to a degree exceed the risk of being stung in most cases. Having said that, something must definitely be done when wasps decide to make a nest in your shed eaves, garden hedge or roof void.
It's wiser to call in a specialist for this sort of process, especially in inaccessible areas, although it is possible, if you can catch a wasps nest early on, to tackle it with over the counter remedies yourself. Not in any circumstances should you knock down a wasps nest, spray it with insect killer spray or disturb it in any way, shape or form. All this is going to do is make the insects furious, more prone to attack, and try to sting the first moving creatures they come across. These insects tend to be even more hostile when anything comes near to their nests, and there may be a hundred or more wasps inside even the most insignificant of nests.
CAN WASPS NESTS DAMAGE PROPERTY?
To establish the type of wasp which is invading your property in Ascot, you can contact a qualified wasp removal specialist, who will inform you if they are likely to cause a threat. Damage to roof timbers and joists is possible if you have a particular kind of wasp which chews on wood to make wood-pulp for its nests. Although this is not likely to be a safety threat for the forseeable future, it can contribute to problems that will need attention down the line.
If you discover an obvious entry point to your house where wasps are entering and exiting, it's not advisable to block this hole. If you close an entryway to an existing nest, the wasps on the inside will find a different way out, and the wasps on the outside will try to find a different way in. This might involve damage to other parts of your property as they create another hole to gain entry to their nest. A certified wasp nest removal firm in Ascot will minimise any further damage, by uncovering the nest and safely removing it. As soon as this has been completed you will be able to repair and block up any holes that were enabling entry into your home.
WHAT TYPES OF WASPS ARE THERE?
While there are over 7,000 species of wasp there are 2 chief varieties we can group them into: Solitary and Social wasps.
Solitary Wasps: Only responsible for building small nests, or using crevices left in timber and in the soil, solitary wasps are, as the name indicates - loners. The majority of people pay very little heed to solitary wasps, and they've got beneficial impacts in the garden by feeding on ubiquitous garden pests such as caterpillars, greenfly and aphids.
Social Wasps: Social wasps are the ones that can be seen creating sizeable nests and quite often swarming by the thousand in Ascot. The nest can become a bit of a problem as it grows bigger and large nests have often been known to make a dwelling a no-go area until it has been properly dealt with. If there happen to be pets or children on the premises, the nests of social wasps should be eliminated and removed by a professional, as they present an immediate and present threat in such instances.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS FOR REMOVING A WASPS NEST IN ASCOT?
If you've got a fairly small wasps nest on your property in Ascot, and the inhabitants aren't in fact pestering you to any degree, it can safely be left for the time being, to see if a problem develops. Wasps will never return to an old nest after the summer life cycle is finished. During the autumn months there will be a reduction in the overall number of wasps, and in the winter the colony will die off, never returning to that particular nest. That is not to suggest that the selfsame location won't see the return of wasps, only that they won't reuse an old, discarded nest. An old wasp nest does not rot or decay since it is made out of a cellulose (paper like) material, which means that it can be left in place and won't cause any additional issues.
It is recommended that you call in an experienced Ascot wasps nest removal company to neutralise and remove it, if the nest is massive and the wasps are causing an issue for you and your family. A certified wasps nest removal company will be ready for every situation and will be kitted out with the appropriate personal protective and first aid gear to keep themselves and you safe. It may be required for you to leave the property for a short time dependant upon the seriousness of the wasp issue. It is good to understand that if you get near to a nest, you'll more than likely be confronted with aggressive behaviour, given that the sole intention of wasps is to safeguard the queen, which they'll do without exception.
Pinpointing the location of the primary nest and entryways, and establishing the wasp species that is causing the problem, will be the first concern for any pest control service. A comprehensive on-site survey will be necessary, as your property in Ascot could be harbouring more than just one solitary nest. Common locations where wasps can build nests in Ascot are cavity walls, sheds, eaves and lofts. Seeing as this process could mean working at height most of the time, the need for getting professional assistance is ever more important.
As soon as the nest has been located, a suitable residual pesticide will be applied. Depending on the location, type and size of nest, this might be in the shape of a spray or dust. To ensure the wasps are carrying the pesticide into the nest to eradicate it fully, this may have to be administered a couple of times. When all the foraging, worker have returned to their nest and been exposed to the pesticide, this will be the time that they can think about removing the nest. There will be minimal activity from and to the nest approximately 24 hrs from the initial treatment. The wasps nest can be removed between forty eight hours and a month after this, to make sure that all the wasps have been eradicated and the nest can be safely approached.
If a home has not been lived in, the whole house might have to be fumigated, especially if the wasps nests have spread into multiple rooms, areas and living spaces.
WHAT ARE THE DANGERS FROM WASPS IN ASCOT?
Approximately 0.5% of the UK population may experience anaphylaxis shock from a wasp sting and based on figures released by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence, this figure is gradually rising. In a 21 year study between 1998 and 2012 there were 2688 admissions to hospitals in England and Wales attributed to wasp stings, with 93 deaths. The risk is much higher in the very young and those over 60, however any person who has a previous history of allergy to wasp venom can receive a life-threatening sting from a single wasp.
HOW CAN I PREVENT WASP NESTS ON MY PROPERTY IN ASCOT?
Your local pest control company will be happy to give you guidance on the many preventive steps you could take to stop wasps nesting in your home or garden in Ascot.
You should consider the fact that wasps generally choose to construct their nests in sheltered, dark locations that are protected from wind and rain. Because of this, places like lofts, eaves and roof voids are much favoured. Whenever it's possible to do so, check around for any gaps or damage, and block them. Fine mesh could be used to cover up up air bricks, chimney pots, vents and soffits. Because wasps prefer darker areas, you could deter them by installing a small, low-wattage light or even a window in your roof space. Treating wooden sheds and outbuildings with creosote, stain or wasp repellent to discourage them from entering or building nests.
