Selby Wasps Nest Removal and Pest Control

Wasp Nest Removal Selby North Yorkshire (YO8): The long-awaited arrival of spring and then summertime also heralds the arrival of more bugs in Selby, and as we spend more time out in the open air, we are far more likely to encounter wasps in the garden and home. Most of the time, the benefits attributed to wasps far exceed the risk of being stung, and for many people in Selby, wasps aren't that much of an issue. That being said, something definitely has to be done when a swarm of wasps decides to make a nest in your shed eaves, attic or garden hedge.

Free Selby Wasps Nest Removal Quotes

If a wasp nest is found early on you could possibly treat it with shop bought remedies by yourself, but because of the position of some wasps nests in out of reach areas it is usually wiser to bring in a professional. You should not ever try to squirt a wasp nest with insect killer spray, try to knock it down or in any way disturb it. This sort of action will just aggravate the wasps, and make them more prone to sting the first thing they see - in other words you! Wasps tend to be much more irascible when anything comes in close proximity to their nests, and there may well be a hundred wasps or more inside even a small, insignificant nest.

Wasps Nest Removal Selby North Yorkshire (YO8)


A specialist pest controller should be able to recognise the kind of wasp and determine if it poses a danger to your home in Selby. Certain wasps chew on timber to make a pulp for their nests and if left alone this could cause damage to roof timbers and other structural parts of your building. Although this isn't a threat to safety for the forseeable future, it can contribute to issues that need to be fixed over time.

It's recommended that you do not block a hole if you see it's an obvious entry and exit point for wasps accessing your property. Closing off the entrance to an existing nest will just cause the wasps on the outside to search for another way in, and those on the inside to search for another way out. In an effort to find new entryways into your home, yet more damage could be caused. A professional wasp nest removal service in Selby will be able to uncover and safely remove the nest and therefore minimise any further structural damage. After the nest is dealt with you'll then be able to repair and block up any holes.


We will be looking at the two principal categories here - "Solitary Wasps" and "Social Wasps", although there are actually thousands of different wasp species in the UK.

Wasp Nest Removal Selby (01757)

Solitary Wasps: As the name suggests, solitary wasps are loners, and just build smallish nests, or use holes in the soil or gaps left in timber. Having a predominantly beneficial impact around the garden, by feeding on garden pests such as greenfly, aphids and caterpillars, solitary wasps are seldom ever noticed by the vast majority of people in Selby.

Social Wasps: The wasps that you may see swarming in their 1000s in Selby and building substantial nests are the social wasps. The nest of social wasps can develop into something of a problem as it gets bigger and large nests have quite often been known to place a house out of bounds until it has been properly dealt with. If you've got young children or pets, the nests of social wasps can present an immediate and present danger that should be dealt with by an expert.


If the nest is reasonably small, and your household is not being bothered by the wasps, it can basically be left alone. After the summer is over and their life cycle is complete, wasps will just abandon their nest and never ever reuse it. During the autumn there'll be a noticeable decrease in the overall quantity of wasps, and through the winter the colony will die, never returning to that nest. This doesn't suggest that wasps won't return to the selfsame location, but just that the old nest won't be used again. Old, discarded wasps nests don't rot away or decay, as they are made out of a form of cellulose (paper like) material. The old nests can be left undisturbed if they're not causing an issue, and will remain there for a number of years.

Wasp Problems Selby (YO8) North Yorkshire

Determining the wasp species involved, and pinpointing the location of the principal nest and the entrances, is going to be the first priority. And given that there could possibly be more than one nest on the premises, this means a full site survey being performed. Eaves, shrubs, wall cavities and lofts are all commonplace areas where wasps build nests in Selby. The necessity for getting professional assistance is even more obvious, when you consider that searching in such places could involve working at height.

Once the nest is located, a suitable residual insecticide will be administered. This could be in the form of a spray or a dust based on the size, type and location of nest. More than one insecticide treatment may be neccessary to ensure the wasps are carrying the insecticide right the way into the centre of the nest and fully destroying it. Until such time as all of the foraging wasps have returned to the nest and come in contact with the pesticide, no more action should be undertaken. There will be very little activity back and forth from the nest approximately twenty four hours from the first treatment. The wasps nest can then be removed between 48 hours and one month after this, to make certain that all the wasps have been killed off and the nest is safe to approach.

If a dwelling has been left vacant, the whole house might need to be fumigated, especially if the wasps nests have dispersed into various areas, living spaces and rooms.


According to NICE (the National Institute for Clinical Excellence), about 0.5% of people may suffer anaphylaxis shock from wasp or bee stings. There were 2688 admissions to hospitals in England and Wales attributed to wasp stings, with 93 of these being fatal, between 1998 and 2012, based on a 21 year study. Any person who has a previous history of allergy to wasp venom can suffer a life-threatening sting from a solitary wasp, however the risks are much higher in those over 60 and the extremely young.

Your local wasp nest removal company will be delighted to give you advice on the different preventive measures you can take to discourage wasps from nesting on your property in Selby.

It's definitely worth bearing in mind that dark, sheltered spots that are shielded from rain and wind, are the sites where wasps normally like to build their nests. That's why areas such as roof spaces, eaves and attics are much favoured as nesting sites. You should attempt to block any gaps or damage when it is possible to do so. Cover up vents, air bricks, soffits and chimneys with small grade mesh. Because wasps have a liking for darker areas, you could deter them by fitting a low-wattage light or possibly even a window in an attic. Wooden sheds, garden buildings and even roof joists can be coated with a stain to discourage wasps from building their nests.
