Wasp Nest Removal Canterbury

A Safe and Humane Removal of Wasps and Their Nests

Call us on 01293 365140


The average wasps' nest in Canterbury can be home to a colony of a few hundred wasps at a time. And if you neglect the wasp nest in the hope that it will go away on its own, after a few weeks, the wasp population around your property will have multiplied. That's why it is essential to establish insect control as soon as you see or suspect to have a wasp nest on your property.

Why Wasp Nests Are Removed Despite Their Benefits

A large population of wasps will keep the number of flies, caterpillars, aphids, and other similar insects under control. This is a benefit many farmers in Canterbury get to enjoy.

However, when it comes to residential and commercial properties, wasps are not really beneficial. In fact, they are actually more of a nuisance and very dangerous for people and animals that are allergic to wasp stings. That's why many home and commercial property owners decide to remove them before they become problematic.

How to Know if You Have a Wasp Nest on Your Property

The UK is home to various species of wasps, which have a unique set of characteristics. The common wasp (Vespula vulgaris) for example prefers to nest on trees and bushes. As a result, being able to physically see the nest is relatively easy as it is out in the open. However, other wasp species prefer more secluded areas, such as your attic space, inside the walls or the ceiling of your property, and other such areas.

As a result of that, knowing if you have a wasp problem is a little bit more tricky. In such a case, look and listen out for:

  • Buzzing sounds coming from one place.
  • Chewed away wooden elements around your property.
  • An increased number of wasps flying around your property during the summer months.

How Our Wasp Control Services Work

Before removing the nest and the wasps, our team made up of experienced wasp controllers will first locate the wasp nest and identify the wasp species that reside in it. Our findings will help our team decide on the best course of action. The reason we do this is to guarantee that we can remove the nest from your property safely and that we remove the wasps in the most humane way possible. For more information, feel free to ask our staff about the approach they will take on the day of your appointment.

Wasp Nest Removal Canterbury FAQs

Yes, all of our staff are fully trained and equipped to safely and effectively remove the wasp nest that has been bothering you. Over the years, our team has served both residential and commercial properties all over Canterbury. No matter what species of wasps you're dealing with or the size of wasp nest you need removed, we are prepared to handle it.

While it's not illegal to remove wasps and their nest on your own, it's far from the safest and best way to go about it. This is especially relevant if you have no prior experience in dealing with wasps and the dangers that come with them. What we would recommend is to book the services of a wasp pest control provider who can handle the wasps on your behalf. That way, you don't need to expose yourself to the risk of getting stung or attacked by a swarm of wasps.

Once our pest control service takes place, you won't have an issue with wasps for a while. With that said, there is no guarantee that a new colony of wasps won't decide to make your property their home in the future. It's worth mentioning that wasps don't just nest anywhere. They only nest in areas that are protected from predators and harsh weather conditions as well as areas that are easily accessible and have plenty of resources nearby.

In other words, you can work against the wasps and make your property as undesirable for them as possible. That way, the chances of a wasp colony making your property their home will be dramatically reduced. To make your property undesirable for wasps, make sure to:

  • Regularly clean all surfaces where you eat or make food.
  • Plug all holes around your property where wasps can fit through and nest in.
  • Remove all existing wasp and hornet nests on your property.
  • Place dummy nests on your property (that way, wasps might think the area is already taken by another colony).
