(Wasp (Nest) Removal and Wasp (Nest) Extermination)
Example of a previous job
A school alerted us to a wasp problem after several students had got stung. There was no obvious place wasps were coming from or of a nest but the stings were happening in the same classroom and surrounding area. Eventually an old air vent on the roof of the classroom was identified as access point to a nest. The nest had been there for a while without causing an issue, but the vent had been blocked by building contractors, forcing the wasps to find another point of entry: through another vent opening onto an area used hourly by students. The nest was removed and the stinging stopped.
Top tips on wasps
- Wasps can nest nearly anywhere – attic spaces, lofts, sheds, wall cavities, in soil, trees, bird boxes, garages.
- Keep the area around your house free little and potential nesting places.
- If you have fruit trees keep the area free from fallen or rotten fruit. There´re perfect feeding grounds for wasps.
- Ensure there are no food sources for wasps nearby.
- Try to remove any standing water – pests are attracted to moisture.
- Seal any cracks or holes in walls to your house.
- Keep food sealed properly. Using jars and click-clock type containers is a good idea.
- Pests like wasps to build nests in stacks of wood.
