The queen wasp will venture from her winter hibernation location in search of a suitable nesting site in late April/May. Wasps Nests are frequently found in garden hedges, under eaves, in sheds or outbuildings, or in wall cavities and lofts.

Completed nests can hold up to 10,000 wasps and measure more than 30cm in diameter. Most problems are encountered with wasps in August and September when workers have finished the nest building and crave sweet sources of food. It is often that wasp nests are identified at this time of year.

During the summer months however the nest rapidly grow and can contain many thousands of wasps all of which can deliver a painful sting. Removal of these nests should not be treated lightly – the wasps become more aggressive towards late summer and can swarm around the nest making treatment in enclosed areas such as loft spaces particularly dangerous.
We use professional insecticidal contact powder or direct permethrin spray to destroy the nest.
