Call us on 01293 365140


A thriving wasp nest during the peak of summer can be home to over a thousand worker wasps. Whether you're a business or a normal resident of Godalming, dealing with wasp infestations is not a fun experience. And the worst thing is that if you let the wasp nest be and hope that the problem will go away on its own, things are only going to get worse over time.

Problems Wasp Nests Can Cause & Why We Remove Them

Neglecting a wasp nest and thinking the unwanted visitors will go away is the biggest mistake residents and commercial business owners make when dealing with wasps. If you don't take adequate action against an active wasp nest, every 5 to 8 days, it will double in size. As a result, in the matter of a few weeks, an active wasp nest can go from being a mere inconvenience to causing you serious problems, including:

  • Damage to all nearby wooden elements on your property (including the structural integrity of the building)
  • Food contamination and the spread of diseases
  • Increased risk of getting attacked and stung
  • Increased risk of anaphylactic shock following a sting, which can be fatal
  • Displacement of bees and other pests that live in the area

And if you happen to run a business, aside from the above, an out-of-control wasp nest can lead to loss of customers and revenue.

Most Common Signs There's a Wasp Nest on Your Property

There are many different ways you can tell that there's a wasp nest on your property. The first and most obvious sign is being able to see the wasp nest out in the clear. With that said, due to the UK's poor weather conditions, most wasp species have learned to nest in sheltered locations, such as your attic space. As a result, figuring out if you have a wasp nest is a little more challenging. If that's the case with you, please look and listen for the following signs:

  • Constant buzzing sound coming from one place
  • Signs of chewed wood
  • An increase of wasp activity since a few weeks ago
  • Wasps flying in and out of the same location

Wasp Nest Removal Godalming FAQs

Yes, we do. We can guarantee that your wasp nest and its inhabitants will be removed entirely during our first and only visit to your property. What we can't guarantee, however, is that another colony of wasps won't find your property desirable and decide to nest in the area in the future.

Yes, it is. The British Pest Control Association (BPCA) has made it clear that anyone in the UK can take the necessary action to remove a wasp nest and its inhabitants. There is also no official guidance on the best way of doing so, meaning it's really up to you and the wasp control specialist you hire to decide what the best course of action is.

Wasps, like many other species, have their preference for the location they want to call home. They find properties of particular interest that are close to all the water, food, and resources (such as wood) they need to expand their nest over the coming months. They also prefer locations that are safe from predators and the harsh weather conditions in the UK. Knowing all of that, to prevent wasps from coming back and nesting on your property again, you should:

  • Seal up all gaps and holes on the exterior of your property
  • Remove any active wasp nests and replace them with dummy ones (wasp colonies don't tend to nest right next to other nests to avoid conflict)
  • Don't leave food out in the open or garbage in areas that are easily accessible
