How Wasp Control is Done
A surveyor comes to check up on the situation and the property. What the technician looks for: how big is the nest, how high it is, can the nest be easily reached and sprayed.
To treat a wasp nest the team sprays it with a powder which neutralises the wasps quickly. The exterminator wears protective gear so there's no danger of being attacked.
Wasp control usually requires a single visit only. You can request a follow-up visit if you're worried wasps may return to your property.
The exterminator will let you know some tips and actions you can do to protect your home from future wasp infestation.

How to prepare for the arrival of your wasp exterminator
Make sure that what you are dealing with is a wasp’s nest, not a beehive, otherwise, the service needs to be done by a local beekeeper! However, it is perfectly fine if you are not sure, the professionals will establish that for you. In case you are truly dealing with wasps, they can proceed with treatment. Remember 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: How do I change my appointment for another day, if I need to?
A: Just log into your Fantastic account, go to the dashboard section and reschedule your booking from there. If you haven’t got an account, it’ll take you a minute or two to register and create one.
Q: How about getting a special deal on my wasp control service?
A: Well, of course, you can pay less for your service. Just join our loyal clients - the valued members of the Fantastic Club and never turn back! You’ll be eligible for discounts on all services for a year and get tonnes of other benefits, as well.
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.
