If a wasps nest is caught early on it can be treated with over the counter remedies yourself, however on account of the positioning of many wasps nests in inaccessible areas it's often safer to bring in a professional. You should never try to spray a nest with insect killer, try to knock it down or in any way disturb it. This form of action will only provoke the insects, and make them more prone to sting the first creature they see - in other words you! Even a relatively small nest can accommodate a hundred wasps or more, and these belligerent pests are much more aggressive when close to their nests.

Solitary Wasps: Only building small nests, or using gaps left in timber and in the soil, solitary wasps, as their name indicates are loners. Having a predominantly beneficial impact around the garden, by feeding on garden pests such as caterpillars, aphids and greenfly, solitary wasps are seldom noticed by the vast majority of people in Northam.

Social Wasps: The wasps known as social wasps are the ones that you'll see swarming in their 1000's in Northam and building sizeable nests. The large nests of social wasps can sometimes even place a property out of bounds in extreme cases, and have to be dealt with correctly. Presenting an immediate and grave risk, especially if there happen to be pets or youngsters on the property, the nests of social wasps will need to be eliminated and removed by a professional.


If your family aren't really being pestered by the wasps, and the nest isn't large, it can generally be left and closely watched. The wasps never revisit a nest after the summer life cycle is over. There will be a noticeable decrease in the quantity of wasps during autumn, and over winter the entire colony (apart from new queens) will die, never returning to that nest. That's not to assume that the selfsame area will never be returned to, just that they'll not reuse an old nest. An old wasp nest doesn't decay or rot away as it's made with a cellulose (paper like) material, which means it can be left in position and won't cause any more issues.
