It is not unusual to see wasp nests at home. They usually build their nests in an old roof, unused corner or gutter area, and become more aggressive and prominent during late summer or early autumn. When disturbed and provoked, wasps can get aggravated and can sting. And unless you know the proper and safe way of removing wasp nests, hiring people who specialize in pest control can save you a lot of trouble.
According to The British Beekeepers Association, majority of insect bites and stings in the UK are brought about by wasps. This trend makes it all the more important for you to hire professionals in pest control soon as you see wasps hovering around your area.
Companies specializing in pest control have a team of experts who are trained to eliminate wasps and wasp nests, and at the same time prevent them from coming back. First thing that a professional would do is to make a survey of your area, identify sources of wasps, make an assessment, and then decide on the proper, and the safest and most effective approach to removing the wasps and their nests.
Experts have access to the most advanced tools and equipment for proper and safe wasp nest removal, as well as to specialized insecticides that are not readily available in the market. While some wasps nest removal professionals use insecticide sprays, some professionals may also use poisonous powder that prevents wasp aggravation and disturbance.
Experts in pest control do not only eliminate the wasps, but also the source – their nests. Different companies specializing in pest control may use different methods. While some just knock down the nest, some block the entrance. But especially in severe cases, pest control experts may use small explosives to completely eliminate the nest.
What could be the best part of hiring a professional is that everything can be done on a single visit. Soon as you see traces of wasps hovering in your area, make an appointment with an expert, and in no time, your area is safe again and you will never have to worry about wasp stings.
The cost of hiring an expert in controlling pests depends on different factors. These include the company you hire, the size and number of nests to be removed, and the location of the nest. On average, private companies charge around £50 to remove one nest, and gets higher for subsequent nests.
Removing wasp nests is no easy job. Especially if you have found huge nests and several of them, you may already need to hire people specializing in pest control who do not just have the right knowledge and skills but also have the proper equipment and personal protective equipment.
