Wasps are generally identified by their yellow and black striped pattern and curved abdomen. Their nests are also easy to recognise as they look like grey paper and hang from a high place. Trees, rafters, overhangs and porch roofs are common places to find a nest. The nest serves as a home base for the colony. A queen begins the colony and every worker wasp and soldier wasp comes from her. The colony growth rate is very rapid.

The sting of a single wasp is only dangerous to those with allergies to the venom implanted during the sting. However, since wasps work and live as a colony, they act as one in defence of their home. Disturbing a wasp nest can result in life threatening events as the whole colony except the queen will join the defence act. This is what makes them so dangerous. Only a well trained professional should disturb a nest.

Wasps

LIFE CYCLE OF A WASP

  • The queen will find an area to nest within in late spring/ early summer.
  • She will build her nest from chewed up leaves and wood, she will then begin to lay eggs.
  • These eggs will form into worker wasps and soldier wasps.
  • The longer the wasps nest is undisturbed, the bigger it will get and the more hazardous it can become.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR

  • Nests – Are usually found within loft spaces as they are the ideal location for wasps to thrive.
  • Wasps congregating around an area or seen going in and out of the same place all day.
  • Wasps found within a premises either dead or alive.

THE QUICKIL PROCEDURE

  • Our technician will first assess the level and number of the wasp population.
  • They will then spray directly into the nest entry point with specialist insecticide.
  • Avoiding recolonisation is key when dealing with wasps nests and although treatment is usually complete after one visit, guarantees are in place in case of re-emergence.
