Wasp Nest Treatment / Removal
Delta Pest Control provides Professional Wasp Nest Treatment and Removal across Coventry & Warwickshire.
Wasp nests will start to be a real issue in August/September time. Nests can easily hold over 30,000 wasps and they will sting if annoyed or threatened.
The sting from a wasp should wear off within 24 hours. Apart from stinging, their persistence can be irritating and present a threat to those allergic to their sting.
Treatment is quick and very effective. The wasps usually die within 2 hours of treatment and follow-up visits are rarely needed. To date we have never had to return to a wasp nest treatment we have carried out. Delta Pest Control provides either nest removal or nest treatment, whichever is more practical and cost effective to the customer.
Please seek medical help immediately if you are stung in the mouth or neck, or if you experience giddiness, nausea, unusual swelling or extreme pain following a sting.
Identifying a Wasps Nest
If you are frequently experiencing the unwanted presents of wasps in and around your property. It is highly likely there is a wasps nest nearby.
To look for a wasps nest on your property or garden, you can carefully follow the flight path of the wasps, and they will indicate the area of the nest.
Nests on the property are typically in wall cavities, in the attic or roof spaces, or under the eaves. These are sheltered places where the wasps can also easily gain access back outside.
Within your garden, common hide-away's for wasps nests are: bird boxes, sheds or garages.
What do Wasps Nests look like?
The outer part of the nest has a papery look- this is because the wasps make their nests from chewed pulp wood & saliva.
It is a dull mix of yellow/brown in colour, with distinctive swirling patterns. The wasp nest starts off quite small - around the size of a golf ball - during the Spring time. As we move into Summer and wasp numbers increase, naturally, so does the size of the nest. Wasps nests can increase to the size of a football, sometimes larger.
For this reason, it is best to have the nest treated/ removed as soon as possible. In addition, as the number of wasps increase and the nest grows larger, the wasps also become more aggressive.
