The average wasp nest can hold hundreds of wasps. Over time, the colony of wasps will grow and become more dominant, making the wasp nest bigger until it is eventually out of control. That's why we recommend that if you are dealing with a wasp nest, you should hire a wasp nest removal service to get rid of it as soon as possible. That way, you can continue living or working at your property without having to deal with wasps every day or risking being stung.
The common wasp in the UK plays a particularly important role you may not even realise. They are great at dealing with the local population of greenflies, caterpillars, and other pests that can become a problem, especially if you have a garden.
Despite that, a high wasp activity that is out of control can be extremely dangerous, especially if you, your family, or your pets are allergic to wasp stings. Aside from the increased risk of getting stung, wasps can also transmit diseases and prey on other insects such as bees.
There are many different signs to look for when it comes to determining if there's a wasp nest nearby. The signs you should look for include:

You may find wasp nests in a wide variety of places. As a general rule of thumb, when deciding where to build a nest, wasps look for a place that is accessible, protected from harsh weather environments, and safe from predators and intruders.
Based on our experience, wasp nests can be found on trees, under eaves, in attics, or even under the ground. There really is no set rule, which is why finding a wasp nest can be tricky for someone who has never dealt with wasps before.
Though wasp stings can be particularly painful and lead to swelling, redness, and itchiness, for most people, they are not dangerous. Of course, if you get stung in multiple places in a short amount of time, that is a different story. In some cases, however, for people who are allergic to wasps, a single sting can lead to an anaphylactic shock (anaphylaxis), which is a life-threatening allergic reaction. That's why getting rid of the nest alone is not a great idea, and you should always consult with an expert in nest removal in Surrey.
Some wasp species are particularly aggressive and can attack in numbers without feeling threatened. So, when dealing with a wasp nest, the first thing you should do to be safe is keep your distance.
