Sorting out wasp infestation at work or at home can be difficult, stressful and time-consuming – so knowing how to spot signs of the problem early on is vital.
Where London wasp control is concerned, keep an eye out for nests in sheltered areas like wall cavities, eaves, bird boxes, garages, roof spaces or sheds. These nests can start off quite small (a similar size to a golf ball, for example), but they can grow very quickly indeed as the number of wasps increase – which you certainly don’t want.  Read More.

It’s always best to clear these nests before the summer when they can grow exponentially and contain thousands of wasps. Dealing with the nests can be very dangerous so it’s best not to attempt it yourself and always call out the pest control experts to help you contain the situation.  Do you have a wasp infestation?

You do not have to remove the nest in order to handle the situation, but you will need to treat it in order to get rid of the wasps and the threat of being stung. Once the nests have been treated, they will have to remain in place for a few days as foraging wasps will return to the site.

Prevent wasps from becoming a problem in the first place by checking for nests, securing your bins with tightly fitting lids and keeping all doors and windows shut so wasps can’t come in. Always keep pets and children away from any nests if you do happen to spot any.

If the problem becomes insurmountable, always call out professional and experienced pest control specialists to help. Pest protect can help you.
