It's not uncommon for the average wasp nest to have hundreds of wasps in and around the nest. In the beginning, wasp nests can be a mere inconvenience, but if no wasp control is put in place, the issue will grow bigger very quickly. Don't put yourself and everyone around at risk of getting stung. It's extremely unpleasant and can lead to health complications for people and animals allergic to wasps.

Dangers of Wasps Nests and Why We Remove Them

The average wasps nest is home to hundreds of worker wasps and one queen wasp. Aside from the buzzing sound that they constantly make, some species of wasps in the UK are known to be particularly aggressive, increasing the risk of everyone around being stung or fiercely attacked in numbers.

If you are not allergic to wasps, aside from the pain and discomfort you will feel, a sting won't put your health at risk. However, if you, your family, or your pets are allergic to wasps, a single sting can be life-threatening.

Besides the health risk, wasps are known carriers of diseases and are often very dominant, which can cause them to displace other insects from the area such as bees.

Clear Signs There's a Wasp Nest Nearby

There are many signs you can look for that will help you determine whether there is a wasp nest nearby or not. Some of the signs we tell our customers to look for include:

  • An unusually high number of wasps around
  • Buzzing sound that comes from one particular area
  • Chewed wood (which is used to build the nest)

Even if you are wearing protective clothing, we advise against dealing with the pest problem on your own if you have no experience. Instead, take advantage of the many same-day pest control services offered by trained professionals in Sussex.

The Wasp Nest Removal Process We Follow

When removing a wasp nest and all of the wasps along with it, we follow a very strict process. During the nest and wasp removal, the safety of our staff and everyone around is our top priority. To ensure that, the first few things our fully trained nest removal specialists will do is locate the wasp's nest, conduct a risk assessment, and determine the species of wasps they're dealing with.

Then, depending on the location of the nest and the species of wasps, a plan of action will be drawn up. The whole nest and wasp removal process typically takes around an hour and causes minimal disruption.

Wasp Nest Removal Sussex FAQs

If you are certain that there is a wasp nest nearby but are not exactly sure where it is, that's okay. On the day of your appointment, our team will use their knowledge and years of experience to locate the wasp nest before taking the necessary steps forward. We advise you to leave it up to us, and not expose yourself to the unnecessary risk of getting stung by trying to find it.

Yes, during the wasp nest removal service, we will remove all of the wasps alongside the nest. It makes little sense for us to only remove the nest and leave behind a colony of wasps, which can still cause a nuisance to you and everyone around. If you've dealt with the wasps for a while, once our team finished their job in a few hours, you will see an instant difference and may not even see a single wasp for a long while.

Following our wasp nest removal service, there is no guarantee that a different colony of wasps won't decide to make the surrounding area their home again. However, there are a few steps you can take to minimise the chances of having to deal with wasps again. We recommend that you:

  • Remove old nests as wasps are likely to come back to a nest they had already built
  • Keep the surrounding area clean and free from any sugar or sweet smells
  • Plug up holes around your property (wasps like to nest in areas that are safe and out of reach)
  • Use wasp deterrents. One great example is hanging a dummy wasp nest, which will make wasps believe the area is already occupied
