Basildon Wasp Nest Removal and Pest Control

Wasps Nest Removal Basildon Essex (SS12 and SS13): The heat of spring and summer in Basildon not only gets us out in the open air, it also increases insect activity and the raised likelihood of encountering wasps and hornets around your property. For many people in Basildon, wasps in general are not that much of a problem, and for the most part their benefits far exceed the risks of getting stung. That being said, something definitely should be done when a swarm of wasps decides to build a nest in your shed eaves, loft or garden hedge.

It's generally wiser to call on a professional for this kind of work, particularly in inaccessible areas, although it is a possibility, if you discover a wasps nest early enough, to tackle it with over the counter remedies by yourself. You should not try to squirt a nest with fly spray, poke it or in any way, shape or form disturb it. This kind of action will only enrage the insects, and make them more likely to sting the first creature they see - in other words you! Wasps tend to be much more aggressive when something comes near to their nests, and there may well be more than a hundred wasps inside even the most insignificant of nests.

To establish the the variety wasp which is infiltrating your home in Basildon, you can call on a proficient wasp removal expert, who'll inform you if they're likely to cause a risk. Some species of wasps gnaw on wood to make wood-pulp for their nests and if left alone this may result in damage to loft timbers and other structural parts of your house. Whilst this damage isn't an immediate threat to safety, over time it can contribute to issues which will need to be fixed.

If you discover a clear access point to your house where wasps can be seen entering and exiting, it's not advisable to repair this hole. Blocking the entrance to an active nest will just cause the wasps outside to look for a different way in, and the ones on the inside to find a different way out. As they establish another hole to access their nest, this might result in further damage to other sections of your dwelling. A certified wasp nest removal service in Basildon will minimize the possibility of any more damages, by uncovering the nest and carefully removing it. Once this has been achieved you will be able to block and repair any holes that were enabling entry into your building.


We'll be considering the two principal categories here i.e. "Solitary Wasps" and "Social Wasps", though there are in reality over seven thousand different species of wasp.

Wasp Nest Removal Basildon (01268)

Solitary Wasps: Solitary wasps, as their name implies, are loners and build only smallish nests or use gaps left in woody plant stems and in the soil. Most people seldom notice solitary wasps, and they've got beneficial impacts around the garden by feeding on garden pests such as caterpillars, aphids and greenfly.

Social Wasps: The wasps you see swarming by the 1000 in Basildon and creating bigger nests are the social wasps. Such large nests can be something of a problem as they develop, and can even make a house a no-go area until properly treated. If you have youngsters or pets, the nests of social wasps can pose an immediate and present risk that should be treated and removed by a skilled professional.


If you've got a fairly small wasps nest on your property in Basildon, and the insects aren't in fact troubling you that much, it can be left for the time being, to see if the situation gets any worse. Wasps will not return to an old nest once the summer life cycle is finished. There'll be a decrease in the overall amount of wasps during the autumn months, and over winter the whole colony will die off, never ever returning to the old nest. That does not suggest that wasps won't return to the same location, but only that the discarded nest will not be reused again. Discarded wasp nests don't decay or rot, because they are made with a type of cellulose (paper like) material. The old nests can be left undisturbed if they're not causing any problems, and will remain there for years.

Wasp Problems Basildon (SS12 and SS13) Essex

Pinpointing the location of the main nest and entryways, and determining the species of wasp which is causing the issue, will be the initial concern for any wasp removal specialist. A full site survey will be vital, given that your property in Basildon could be harbouring more than one solitary nest. Wasps build their nests in a whole range of different places in Basildon, but lofts, cavity walls, eaves and garden sheds, are amongst the most popular. The necessity for calling on specialist help is even more obvious, when you consider the fact that searching in some of these places might involve working on a ladder at height.

After pinpointing the exact position of the wasp nest, the contractor will administer a suitable systemic insecticide. Subject to the size, type and location of nest, this could be in the shape of a dust or spray. Repeated applications of the insecticide might be neccessary to ensure that the nest nest is fully eradicated. Until such time as all the foraging wasps have arrived back at their nest and come into contact with the insecticide, no more measures should be attempted. There should be little or no activity to and from the nest approximately twenty four hours from the first treatment. The wasp nest can then be removed anywhere between forty eight hours and a month after this, to ensure that all the wasps have been exterminated and the nest can be safely approached.

Properties that have been left vacant for a long period may need whole house fumigation if the wasps nests have spread into rooms and living spaces.


Around 0.5% of people in the UK could go into anaphylaxis shock from wasp stings and according to figures released by NICE (the National Institute for Clinical Excellence), this number is gradually increasing. There were 2688 hospital admissions in England and Wales caused by wasp stings, with 93 of these being fatal, between 1998 and 2012, as outlined in a twenty one year study. Any person who has a history of allergy to wasp venom can receive a life-threatening sting from a solitary wasp, however the risks are greater in the extremely young and those over the age of 60.

Your local wasps nest removal specialist will be quite happy to give you guidance and advice on the different precautionary steps that you could take to stop wasps from nesting on your property in Basildon.

It is worth keeping in mind that sheltered, dark areas well away from rain and wind, are the sites where wasps normally like to make their nests. Because of this, areas like attics, eaves and roof voids are hugely favoured. Check around for any damage or gaps and block them up when possible. Use fine mesh to cover up soffits, chimney pots, vents and air bricks. Because wasps have a liking for dark areas, you could deter them by fitting a low-wattage light or possibly even a window in your roof space. Wooden sheds, other outbuildings and even roof joists can be treated with stain, wasp repellent or creosote to deter wasps and other insects.
