Signs of Wasps

  • Wasps will form nests in soil banks, roof spaces, wall cavities and trees.
  • Nests are made from chewed wood mixed with the wasp's saliva and is usually a pale beige/grey colour.
  • A wasp nest can contain anywhere between 3,000 to 5,000 individuals and be over 30cm in diameter.
  • A number of wasps entering and exiting one location.
  • In early Spring or during a mild Winter, the larger queen wasps may be seen.                                

Prevention

  • Check your loft for small holes and gaps as this is the most common way wasps gain entry.
  • Wasps do not like light so discourage future nest building by adding light to small areas where you have previously had a nest.
  • Inspect your loft frequently to check for any new signs of a nest. 
  • Keep bagged refuse and lidded bins with potential food sources away from your house.

Treatment

  • There are various products available on the market for destroying wasp nests, you should always read the label.
  • Self-treatment of wasp nests is best done at dusk, the wasps are less active.
  • If the nest is in a wall cavity or in a hole in the ground this can be treated using an Insect Powder. Treat in the early evening, you may have to repeat this process over 1 or 2 nights.
