During the peak of the summer, a thriving wasp nest can inhabit upwards of a thousand wasps at any one time. And as you can imagine, having that many wasps flying around your residential or commercial property is far from ideal. That's why it's best to get rid of the wasp nest as soon as you notice it and before it starts to become truly dangerous for everyone around.
If you're a farmer or you like to grow crops on your residential property, a decent population of wasps in the area can actually be beneficial. However, for 99% of residential and commercial property owners in Redhill, wasps are nothing but a nuisance. That's the case at least until the colony of wasps living in the nest multiplies in size several times over the coming weeks.
Then, you have a wasp nest that is totally out of control, which can become very dangerous, for a number of reasons. For one, the chances of you, your family, customers, or pets getting stung will dramatically increase. Not to mention that a wasp sting can lead to a life-threatening allergic reaction, which is an entirely different reason why wasp nests are always removed.
Aside from the general health risk of having a wasp nest on your property, wasps can also contaminate food, displace the local bee population, and even damage the structural integrity of your property by chewing away all the wooden elements.
Specifically in the United Kingdom, seeing a nest hanging from a tree branch or from the side of your property is a pretty rare sight. As a result, figuring out if you have a nest on your property can be pretty challenging. If you suspect to have a wasp nest on your property, look and listen out for the following signs:

It's best to remove a wasp nest as soon as you see one or suspect that you have one on your property. This is because wasps can multiply in numbers over a period of a few weeks, and you may end up with a thriving wasp nest with hundreds of wasps flying around and impacting your day-to-day life.
As far as the actual best time to remove a wasp nest - that would be during the evening or nighttime when wasps are less active. This is also the time when temperatures drop, which makes wasps more sluggish.
While it is totally possible to remove a wasp nest without the help of a pest control specialist, we strongly advise against it. Removing a wasp nest without prior experience or the correct protective clothing can quickly go downhill, and leave you with many painful stings, or worse, a life-threatening allergic reaction.

That way, no matter the size and location or species of wasps that live in the nest, we are prepared to safely handle your wasp problem without risking anyone getting hurt.
