Wasp Nest Removal Services Clitheroe 

The downfall of every outdoor event or barbecue, obnoxious wasps land on food, buzz around drinks, and generally make a real nuisance of themselves. 

The queen wasp emerges from hibernation as the springtime weather gets warmer and begins to hunt for a place to build her wasp nest. 

Unfortunately, buildings like sheds and garages or area’s around your home such as wall cavities, under eaves, and roof spaces are frequently ideal places for a wasp nest to grow. 

Typically, summer time is the best time to be spent outdoors - playing with the kids, enjoying a BBQ with friends, digging out weeds and planting flowers etc, but wasps can have a detrimental effect on these plans and will send people running back indoors! This is why early discovery and removal of nests will help you have a summer without worrying about you, the kids or pets getting stung when enjoying your garden.

Before the nest becomes established over the summer, when the number of wasps will grow rapidly, and their behaviour will become more hostile, you should get expert assistance to remove the wasp nest.

    Wasps start to emerge from their winter hibernation as the summer season arrives. Unfortunately, taking precautions to protect your home from this pest can be challenging because wasps can decide to build a nest in various locations around your property. 

    Wherever the wasp nest is, our wasp controllers can safely and effectively treat it using specialised equipment. It only takes a few hours after applying the most potent pesticide to the nest. This is because the poison starts to work and picks the nest apart as it travels throughout the wasp's residence.

    Wasp Nest Removal Treatment

    Our typical treatments involve puncturing the paper nest with a nest spike and a high-powered duster before applying professional insecticidal dust straight into the nest. 

    We use this method to enter other openings if we can't quickly reach the nest. Thanks to extension lances, we can perform these operations up to a height of around 6 to 8 metres without using a ladder.

    When doing unconventional treatments, non-toxic techniques could be necessary if we are in a delicate area where insecticides cannot be used. 

    When the nest cannot be reached safely or without additional work to gain access to the nest, non-standard treatments may include fogging or spraying with pesticides.

    How To Identify A Wasp Nest

    A queen wasp will chew wood combined with saliva to make a pulp which forms an outer shell with numerous inside chambers once she has found an ideal location for her nest. 

    The wasp nest typically contains between 3000 and 8000 wasps in a typical year. It starts about the size of a golf ball before growing to the size of a huge football at its busiest. 

    A professional pest control firm must remove your wasp nest immediately if you discover a wasp nest. The queen will start producing 200 to 300 eggs each day once worker wasps are established and begin foraging.

    You should be able to recognise them coming and going from a similar position. This is a rather obvious sign that you have a wasp nest nearby. 

    Another thing to watch out for is the appearance of white tram lines on wooden furniture; wasps cause these lines by removing the wood from outdoor chairs, tables, fencing, and sheds to build their ever-expanding nest.

    How To Avoid Wasp Nests 

    As with everything else, prevention is always preferable to treatment. 

    You can take action to make your home less appealing for a nest and for worker wasps looking for food. However, it's impossible to completely prevent a queen wasp from picking your property or garden as the location for her wasp nest. 

    Maintain Your Property: A queen wasp cannot establish a nest if she cannot enter. Look for cracks and openings, caulk holes, and cover air bricks and cable access points with bug mesh. 

    Cut off the Food Supply: Bins and open food attract wasps. Bins should always be sealed and kept closed. Don't leave sugary foods or beverages out in the open. Clean any sugary beverage spills off the garden furniture and tables. Don't let rotten fruit sit on the ground if you have fruit trees or bushes. 

    Pick Up Rubbish: In addition to the previous suggestion, it is crucial to ensure that there isn't any food or beverage waste left lying around your property where wasps can gather.
