This is how we deal with wasp nestsEverything is done in one sitting. The pest controller will simply inject a potent powder within the hive itself, which will paralyse and kill the insects. If the wasp nest can't be reached, then the specialist will use an extendable spraying wand to treat the nest from a safe distance and eliminate the wasps.

How to prepare for the specialist’s arrival
There are no special precautions you need to take prior to the treatment. However, make sure to double-check that what you have in your backyard or in your home is indeed a wasp’s nest and not a beehive, otherwise, the service needs to be done by a local beekeeper! If you are not sure the technicians can come and check for you. In case you are truly dealing with wasps, they can proceed to treatment. One key thing that you need to remember is to keep your distance and if you see wasps storming out of the nest and grouping together, it means you are too close and should get out of there as soon as possible.
Frequently asked questions
Q: There is a wasp nest at my property. Can I tackle it myself?
A: You really shouldn't, especially if you don't have protective equipment and even more so if you are allergic to the stingers. The consequences might be very painful since the wasps will fight vigorously when provoked.
Q: What should I do, then?
A: Please resort to the services of a professional. A fully equipped and knowledgeable expert will be able to safely handle the situation.
Q: How many individual wasps are there inside the nest?
A: Well, it depends on the size of the nest. The larger ones could house nearly 10,000 adult wasps, but these are rare. Most nests shelter between 3000 and 6000 insects during the warmest summer days.
Q: Can the wasps build a nest indoors?
A: Yes, this can happen if the wasps find a way to enter inside the structure. The places that are most likely to be affected include garages, sheds, lofts and even attics.
Q: Can the wasp nest be in the ground?
A: Yes. They can use existing cavities in the ground (old rabbit burrows or mouse holes) and turn them into nests. This also applies to cavities in walls and other surfaces.
Q: Are wasps aggressive?
A: Only the female wasps are able to sting and they will resort to doing so if provoked. Note, however, that even approaching a nest counts as a provocation. To make things worse, the first wasp that stings will emit a special pheromone that will tell the other wasps to attack you.
