Wasp nest control – What to look for:
The rapid urbanisation of the UK’s major cities has led to a huge increase in the number of terraced houses and purpose built blocks of flats, with a reduction in the number of wooded areas that wasps would typically build their nests in. However, it is still common to find wasp nests in urban areas and many people are entirely unaware of the presence of a nest in their home or premises. While wasps can be seen as a pest, it’s important to remember that they are an important part of the plant pollination cycle and provide a natural pest control measure for gardens and agriculture.

But when their nest is in your house, we of course understand that their presence is less than welcome and can pose some risks to you and your family.

To establish a nest in a property, a queen will first need to find a way inside. Due to their size, this is easy enough to achieve through cracks, gaps in tiles and roofs and many other places. This makes it quite difficult to entirely prevent wasps from finding their way into your property, but we can put measures in place in the most obvious places like chimneys, windows and roof spaces. At the start of the winter season the queen will have built a nest that may be no larger than a ball of golf. In most cases it will be concealed to start with within the void space of the outer wall, or at the back of a roof beam. As the seasons advance, the nest will grow in size and will often become far easier to notice. It is mostly in roof spaces that we have a chance of seeing very large structures.

Control methods and treatments:
Manchester Pest Control employs a team of professional, highly experienced pest control technicians who are fully equipped and trained to use several disposal methods. This includes top of the range gas powered Dusters which allow us to apply pressurised insecticidal powder to wasp nests and into voids for maximum effect. Our ladders and extension lances allow us to access wasp nests that would otherwise be difficult to reach.

Our technicians also have personal protective equipment that allows them to concentrate on the job in hand without fear of being stung. Without it, treating a wasp nest in a loft would be highly hazardous as not having the right protection and being distracted by stings when in a precarious positions could result in a fall from a ladder or roof.

If a large nest has already been established, the most efficient and economical way to deal with it is by destroying it immediately on-site. This will usually involve sealing it within a heavy duty plastic bag and physically smashing it within the bag to contain all the wasps as well. A wasp killing spray can also be used at the same time. However, a large nest can contain thousands of wasps, all of whom will attempt to protect their nest and queen. As wasps can sting repeatedly without dying, this can quickly become a very dangerous situation and should only be attempted by a professional wearing appropriate protective gear if the conditions allow it to be safely done.

Removing a nest in roof space should only be done by a professional pest controller. Please do not try to remove one by doing it yourself.

In normal circumstances the safest wasp control method is to treat from a safe distance from the outside of the building. Here our technicians would use a specially designed duster that send pressured insect powder straight in the entry point of the wasp nest. The dust will often reach deep inside the nest right away and will begin killing wasps immediately. If the nest entry is not easily spotted or accessible, the dust will instead be applied to likely access points in your home that wasps would use. This ensures that that wasps will coat themselves in the dust and introduce it to the nest themselves. The dusting should ensure that the nest is dead within 72 hours, including all adult and infant wasps.

Our guarantee:
The treatments provided by Manchester Pest Control are very effective and you will normally see the effect within a couple of days. However if there is still wasp activity 72 hours after treatment, we are more than happy to return and complete a second round of treatment free of charge.
We can offer a same day wasp nest removal service in the Greater Manchester, Stockport and Cheshire areas and Manchester Pest Control is committed to providing an affordable removal service. We have two fee levels which depend on where the wasp nests are located – the basic charge of £59.50 would be for a simple wasp nest treatment, typically a straight forward job requiring no ladders or extensions, with easy access at ground level, in an air vent at hands reach or from a window or a balcony. If the nest is in a harder to reach area, our technician will assess the access requirements and provide an updated cost. We treat as one any nests that are located less than a few metres from each other. If two nests are in different areas, the second nest will be charged at £20.00.

Of course, no action will be taken without your express approval

Honey Bees and Bumble Bees:
Bees are not aggressive species and should be left alone as they are beneficial to nature and their population numbers are already falling. They are naturally quite docile and will not sting unless provoked. By the time you take notice of the nest it will normally already be near its natural end towards the middle of summer. Even though they are not protected by law, wild bees are in danger of extinction and we therefore recommend relocation rather than extermination as a control method. Bee keepers are more than happy to come to remove a nest and relocate it at no charge, or for a similar fee to what a pest control company would charge to exterminate the nest. We would recommend checking the link below for contact details for a local bee expert.

There are alternate non-lethal methods that can be tried as well – we have used Velcro nets on windows to stop the bees from entering in the past with great success. Bees are only active for a few months so alternatives are worth looking at.

If the nest is inside cavity walls do not block the entry point as this can drive bees looking for an alternative exit into your living spaces. If the bees pause an unacceptable health and safety risk to the public then extermination as a last resort should be considered.

Please note that there is currently a shortage of feral honey bee colonies (wild bees), however bee keepers can easily and economically purchase honey bee lines from firms that raise them artificially. As such, it is not always worth the effort for bee keepers to remove a wild nest. It is also important to remember that Honey bees are protected by regulation and their nests need to be relocated.
Do not attempt to remove a bee nest without professional or local authority’s advice.

For further information about honey bees, we would recommend contacting The British Beekeepers Association: http://www.bbka.org.uk/

Hornet nest removal:
Hornets can be easily recognised due to their size and darker colouring when compared to wasps. Their nests are normally hidden but you will be able to see a tiny hole in the fabric of the building used as an entrance by the hornets. If a hornet nest is close to windows, doors or children in general, it is highly recommended to treat it without delay as their stings can be especially painful and they are sometimes aggressive. The same goes when you need to carry out some maintenance work in a roof space where workmen run the risk of being attacked. The treatment process for hornet nests is the same as that for a wasp nest and is just as effective.
