Bovey Tracey Wasp Nest Removal and Pest Control

Wasps Nest Removal Bovey Tracey Devon (TQ13): As first springtime and then summer arrives in Bovey Tracey, we all tend to spend much more time out in the open air. However, this coincides with increased insect activity and it's likely that we'll see more wasps and stinging insects around our homes and gardens. Wasps generally speaking are not that much of a problem for most folks in Bovey Tracey, and their benefits largely outweigh the risk of being stung in most situations. But when wasps decide to make a nest in your roof void, shed eaves or in a garden hedge, something should be done.

You might be tempted to attempt this by yourself, to save time and expense, and it may be quite possible if you discover it early on, but it is generally wise to call in a professional, especially in hard to get at areas. Under no circumstances should you ever spray a nest with insect killer or try to poke it or knock it down. This type of action will just provoke the insects, and make them more inclined to sting the first creature they encounter - namely you! Wasps are more aggressive near their nests, and even a comparatively small wasp nest can accommodate a hundred or more wasps.

To confirm if a wasp nest poses a realistic threat to you, your family or your property in Bovey Tracey, a knowledgeable pest exterminator should be able to figure out the type of wasp that is present. Certain wasps chew on wood to make a pulp for their nests and if left alone this can result in damage to roof timbers and other structural areas of your building. 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 a clear entry point to your property where wasps are exiting and entering, it is recommended that you do not block up this hole. If you close up an entrance to an existing nest, the wasps inside will soon find a different way out, and the wasps outside will try to find an alternative way in. As they establish a new hole to access their nest, this might involve further damage to other parts of your house. A professional wasps nest removal specialist in Bovey Tracey will minimise the possibility of any further structural damage, by uncovering the nest and safely removing it. As soon as this has been accomplished you will be able to block and repair any holes that were enabling access into your home.


There are in fact hundreds of different species of wasps, but for the purpose of this short article we can divide them into "Solitary Wasps" and "Social Wasps".

Wasp Nest Removal Bovey Tracey (01626)

Solitary Wasps: Only responsible for building small nests, or using gaps left in timber and in the soil, solitary wasps are, as the name implies - loners. Solitary wasps are hardly noticed by the vast majority of people in Bovey Tracey, and since they eat common garden pests such as greenfly, caterpillars and aphids, have a mainly beneficial impact around your garden.

Social Wasps: Social wasps are the ones that can be seen building sizeable nests and at times swarming by the 1000 in Bovey Tracey. Such really large nests can be a serious problem as they develop, and may even make a house a no-go area until appropriately treated. If you've got young children or pets, the nests of social wasps can present an immediate and present threat that should be eliminated and removed by an expert.


If you've got a comparatively small wasp nest on your property in Bovey Tracey, and the insects are not in fact troubling you that much, it can probably be left for now, to see if a problem develops. As soon as their summer life cycle is over, the wasps never revisit a nest. There'll be a reduction in the overall number of wasps during autumn, and through the winter season the whole colony (except new queens) will die out, never returning to the nest. This doesn't mean that wasps will not come back to the selfsame spot, but only that the previous nest will not be used again. Discarded wasps nests don't decay or rot away, because they're built with a form of cellulose (paper like) material. The old nests can be left in place if they aren't causing any problems, and will remain there for years before ultimately disintegrating.

Wasp Problems Bovey Tracey (TQ13) Devon

Pinpointing the location of the main nest and entrances, and determining the wasp species that is causing the issue, will be the first concern for any pest control company. This will mean a complete site survey will be undertaken, as there might be more than one solitary nest on your premises in Bovey Tracey. Wasps will build nests in a whole range of different areas in Bovey Tracey, but roof eaves, cavity walls, garden sheds and lofts, are among the most typical. The requirement for calling on expert help is even more obvious, when you consider the fact that searching in such locations may involve working at considerable height.

As soon as the nest has been uncovered, an appropriate residual insecticide will be applied. Depending on the variety of wasp, the type, location and size of nest, this lethal treatment can take the form of a spray or dust. Multiple applications of the insecticide might be required to ensure the nest nest is completely eliminated. No further measures should be taken until such time as all the wasps have come back to their nest and been impacted by the insecticide. At approximately twenty four hours after the first treatment, there will be very little remaining activity, however to make sure that the nest is safe to approach and that all of the wasps have been exterminated, the removal process can be carried out somewhere between 48 hours and and a month after the treatment.

If a building has been left empty, the entire house might have to be fumigated, particularly if the wasp nests have spread into various living spaces, rooms and areas.


About 0.5% of the UK population may go into anaphylaxis shock from wasp or bee stings and according to the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE), this number is slowly but surely rising. In a twenty one year study conducted between 1998 and 2012 there were 2688 admissions to hospitals in Wales and England attributed to wasp stings, with 93 of these ending in death. The risks are increased in those over 60 and the extremely young, but anyone who's got a history of allergy to wasp venom can receive life-threatening stings from a solitary wasp.


Wasps Nest Near Bovey Tracey (01626)

You local Bovey Tracey wasps nest removal specialist will be quite happy to offer you advice on the various preventative measures you could take to stop wasps from nesting on your property.

You should bear in mind the fact that usually wasps prefer to construct nests in sheltered, dark areas that are shielded from the wind and rain. This means that areas such as attics, eaves and roof voids are highly favoured. Whenever it's possible to do so, check for any gaps or damage, and plug them. Fine grade stainless steel mesh can be used to prevent access to up soffits, airbricks, vents and chimneys. Seeing that dark areas are favoured by wasps, attics could be fitted with a low-wattage light or maybe even a window. Sheds and other wood structures or roof joists can be coated with a stain to discourage wasps and other insects.
