During the late summer months, wasps affect hundreds of commercial and residential property owners all over Brighton and Hove. And if you happen to be one of them, it's essential that you get it removed as soon as possible, or else, you will be exposed to the many risks that active wasp nests bring with them (more on that below).

Risks of Wasps Nests and Why We Remove Them

If you are a farmer, a healthy population of wasps in the area can keep crop-eating insects such as weevils and caterpillars at bay. However, for 99% of commercial and residential property owners in Brighton and Hove, wasps are nothing but an inconvenience. And the worst thing is that if the wasp nest is not dealt with accordingly, you will expose yourself and everyone around to a number of risks, including:

  • Getting attacked and stung multiple times
  • A wasp sting to those allergic can be fatal
  • If you have bees, they can get displaced as wasps are very dominant species
  • If you run a business, you may lose customers and revenue
  • Food contamination and the spread of diseases
  • Damage to any wooden elements in your property

Signs There Is a Wasp Nest on Your Property

If you aren't quite sure that there is a wasp nest on your property, don't worry as it's quite easy to tell. An active wasp nest, even if you can't see it, will produce a constant buzzing noise coming from one direction (due to all the wasps flying inside it).

Please bear in mind that this isn't always going to happen as some species of wasps in the UK nest underground. Aside from hearing the wasps' nest, you should also look for:

  • Wasps coming in and out of the same place all the time
  • A growing wasp activity in the area
  • Signs of chewed wood

Wasp Nest Removal Brighton and Hove FAQs

We strongly advise against trying to remove your wasp nest on your own. Our advice is particularly relevant for people without the correct protective clothing or prior experience in dealing with wasps. We don't want you to get stung, as the consequences can be quite severe. For some people, a sting from a wasp can lead to swelling and be painful, while for those who are allergic, it can be fatal.

The large majority of Brighton wasp nest removal companies can't guarantee that, but we can. This is because we remove wasp nests and their inhabitants manually, without using any chemicals or pesticides. As a result, no other insects in the area will be harmed.

If you don't want to deal with wasps in the future, there are a few steps you can take. The first and biggest one is to limit wasps from the resources they so desperately need, including water, food, and shelter.

To do so, we advise that you never leave out any food or garbage out in the open where it's easily accessible. You should also seal all gaps and holes on the exterior of your property to prevent the wasps from finding their way inside your property. If you want to take your preventative measures further, you can place dummy wasp nests around your property and plant mint or thyme in your garden (wasps hate them).
