If a wasp nest is discovered early on it can be treated with over the counter products by yourself, however due to the position of most wasp nests in hard to get at areas it's normally safer to contact a specialist. Under no circumstances should you squirt a wasp nest with insect killer spray or attempt to poke it or knock it down. All this will do is make the wasps agitated, more prone to attack, and try to sting the first thing they see. Wasps are more irascible when they're close to their nests, and even a relatively small wasps nest can accommodate more than a hundred wasps.

A knowledgeable pest control company will be able to identify the kind of wasp and verify if it poses a potential danger to your family or your property in South Ockendon. Some wasps gnaw on timber to make wood-pulp for their nests and if left alone this could result in damage to loft timbers and other structural components of your home. Even though this damage isn't an immediate threat to safety, in time it can result in issues which will need to be sorted.

If you notice an area on your property in South Ockendon, which is a conspicuous exit and entry point for wasps, you should not repair it right away. If you block up an entryway to an existing nest, the wasps on the inside will soon find a different way out, and the wasps on the outside will try to find another entrance in. This can result in damage to other sections of your building as the wasps establish another hole to gain entry to their nest. A qualified wasp nest removal service in South Ockendon will be able to minimise the possibility of any further structural damage, by locating the nest and safely removing it. When the nest has been destroyed you'll then be able to block up and repair any obvious holes.

Solitary Wasps: Only responsible for building small nests, or using gaps left in wood, pithy plant stems, and in the soil, solitary wasps are, as the name implies - loners. Having a predominantly beneficial impact around your garden, by eating garden pests like aphids, greenfly and caterpillars, solitary wasps are almost never noticed by most folks in South Ockendon.

Social Wasps: Social wasps are the ones that can be seen creating large nests and occasionally swarming in their thousands in South Ockendon. Such large nests can be something of a problem as they expand, and may even make a property a no-go area until properly dealt with. If you have pets or youngsters, the nests of social wasps can present an immediate and present danger that should be exterminated and removed by a highly skilled professional.


If the nest is comparatively small, and your family are not being troubled by the wasps, it can generally be left alone. As soon as their summer life cycle is completed, the wasps will never reuse a nest. There'll be a reduction in the overall number of wasps during the autumn months, and in the wintertime the entire colony (except new queens) will die off, never going back to their nest. This does not mean that you won't get a wasp nest in the same location, just that, they'll build a whole new nest and not use the abandoned one. If left in situ, old wasps nests will survive for several years, as they're made out of a sort of cellulose material and don't decay or rot away. It is safe to remove an abandoned wasp nest, however you can leave it undisturbed if it isn't causing you any problems.

An appropriate systemic pesticide will be administered once the wasp nest has been located. This can be in the form of a dust or spray subject to the location, size and type of nest. Multiple applications of the pesticide may be neccessary to make sure that the nest nest is entirely destroyed. After every one of the worker wasps have returned to their nest and been impacted by the pesticide, this will be the time that they can think about removing the nest. About twenty four hours after the first insecticide treatment, there should be very little remaining wasp activity, but to make sure the nest can be safely approached and that all the wasps have been eliminated, the removal process can be carried out somewhere between forty eight hours and and one month after the treatment.

In cases where a property has been left empty for some time, the whole house may have to be fumigated, especially if the wasps nests have spread into other rooms, areas and living spaces.

You should think about the fact that wasps normally choose to build nests in dark, sheltered places well away from the wind and rain. This is the main reason why a lot of wasps nests are found in eaves, attics and roof voids in South Ockendon. Check for any damage or holes and seal them when possible. Fine mesh can be used to prevent access to up airbricks, chimney pots, soffits and vents. Because wasps favour areas that are dark, you could discourage them by installing a low-wattage light or maybe even a window in your roof space.
