At Rentokil, we understand the concerns to your home, family or business from the presence of wasps. As experts in wasp control we can offer safe and convenient solutions to get rid of your wasp problem quickly.
Removing a wasp nest can be very dangerous. Wasps inside the nest will feel threatened and often become aggressive. This could cause them to sting you and others as they defend their nest and young. To get rid of wasps you actually do not need to remove the nest, but you do need to treat it and the nesting wasps. Our experienced technicians have experience in identifying specific wasp species and all technicians have special protective gear to keep safe during treatment.
A mature wasp nest only found in late summer will almost certainly require professional treatment due to the high risk of wasp stings. By this stage, a nest is likely to contain thousands of individual wasps.
Application of a synthetic pyrethroid spray and or dustable powder is used to deliver an effective treatment targeting nests and nesting wasps. The further application of a synthetic pyrethroid to surfaces around and near the nest may be required to prevent further nest establishment.
For peace of mind, we can return to remove the nest from your property, only after a minimum of 48 hours to allow complete treatment of the whole wasp colony (this is an additional service which will incur an additional charge). However, removing the nest may not be possible if it’s within a cavity wall or similar enclosed location.
