How to Identify and Get Rid of Wasp Nests

If you have wasps in your home, it’s important to identify and deal with their nests as soon as possible. Wasps can be dangerous, and their nests can be a nuisance. If you have a wasp nest on your property, you should call a professional to have it removed.

What are wasps nests made of?

Wasp nest identification is the first step in dealing with the problem of stinging wasps. Wasps nests are made of a paper type material. This is a kind of paper wasps make themselves from chewing up the wood of trees and plants. The wasps use their saliva to glue the pieces of paper together to make their nests.

There are a few ways to identify a wasp nest. First, look for wasps flying in and out of an opening in your home. Second, listen for a buzzing sound coming from the nest. Finally, look for a large, papery nest attached to a structure or hanging from tree branches or other exposed parts of tree trunks or in old animal burrows. An interesting fact is that wasps are less active at night, so that could be a good time to approach the nest at night to observe their living area. Keep in mind that wasps have a high sensitivity for light. As always, be careful when dealing with any insect or animal that could potentially hurt you.

Are Yellow Jacket Wasps Dangerous?

The most common species of wasp in the UK is the yellow jacket. Yellow jacket nests are usually built by the Queen wasps in spring after coming out of thier winter hibernation. They then lay their eggs inside the nest early in the season.  

Is removing a wasp nest necessary?

If you have wasps in your home, it is important to remove their nest. Otherwise, the wasps will continue to reproduce and will become a bigger problem. Wasps can be dangerous to humans and animals, so it is best to get rid of them as soon as possible.

Wasps are not a good thing to have around your home or business premises for a number of reasons:

– They are dangerous to humans and animals

– They can cause damage to property

– They can be a nuisance with their noise

Wasps can and do sting as we all know. A wasp sting can be extremely painful and can cause a lot of issues when someone is allergic to the venom & can have a severe dangerous reaction to the sting. If you’re allergic to the venom in a wasp’s sting, you could be in serious danger if stung by one of these pests. You should carry an EpiPen with you at all times if you know that you’re allergic to wasp venom. If you have young children in the home, you’ll want to make sure that they’re protected from wasps as the stings can be particularly dangerous for small children. An interesting fact is that male wasps do not sting! Its the females that are dangerous.

If you have pets in the home, you’ll also want to make sure they’re protected from wasps. Some pets, especially those that are skittish, are very likely to run from wasps. Other pets, especially those that are energetic, are a risk to themselves and others when they’re chasing wasps.

Wasps are not only dangerous to people and animals, they can also be dangerous to property. Due to their nesting habits, they can cause structural damage to buildings. It is very common for wasps to build nests in nooks and crannies that have been left by builders, which causes issues later on when the building has been used for some time. The wasps build their nests out of wood fiber, which they chew up using a mixture of saliva and wood fiber. Once this mixture has hardened, it makes the nest very sturdy and hardy. This is why it is so difficult for people or companies who deal in pest control to remove the nests once they have been constructed without damaging the underlying fabric of the building. In some cases removal is even more difficult when the worker wasps build the nest in wall cavities.

The presence of wasps around your home or business premises can also be a nuisance due to the noise that they make while flying around your property looking for food sources or potential nesting sites. This noise can disrupt normal activities at your home or business premises if it occurs at night when you are trying to sleep or during the day if you are trying to work at home or run your business from there in a quiet environment free from distractions.

How not to Get Rid of a Yellow Jacket Wasp Nest

In the UK & Ireland the most common wasp species is the Yellow Jacket. If you have a wasp’s nest or other wasp activity on your property, they will very likely be yellow jackets. You should approach the nest with caution. Most property home owners and business proprietors just want rid of the wasp nest and look online for tips on how to get rid of wasp’s nest or wasp killing. They think it is easy to learn how to get rid of a wasp’s colony. It is better to pause for thought. It is not a simple DIY task that you can do if you wear protective clothing. There is much more to the process. Wasps aren’t an easy pest to deal with and should be left to professional control companies like Alpha Pest Management. There are a few things you should NOT do in order to get rid of it. First, never attempt to remove a potential wasp colony yourself. Home remedies for killing wasps should be avoided. This is best left to a professional who knows how to do it safely. Second, don’t spray around the nest or onto the nest or spray the nest with wasp killer insecticide in an attempt to kill the wasps. This will only anger the wasps and make them more aggressive. Finally, don’t try to smoke them out by lighting a fire directly below the nest or the bottom opening of the nest. This could cause the nest to catch fire and put you and your property at risk. If you follow these simple tips, you should be able to get rid of your wasp problem without any trouble.

However, they can be very dangerous when provoked. If you see a wasp nest, observe it from a distance and have an escape route in mind! Do not attempt to get rid of it yourself. To remove wasp nests is a potentially dangeous job as wasps instantly react to provocation and aggravated wasps tend to sting. The best way to get rid of a wasp’s nest is to call in control experts. Contact a pest management agency like Alpha Pest Management who will target the nest, deal with the problem, dispose of the nest and also prevent wasps from returning. We know where the typical wasp will build, how to locate the wasp nest. We know how to get rid of the threat

Most wasp and hornets species tend to be very territorial and they will attack if they feel threatened. Wasps and bees generally respond negatively to activity around the nest or near the nest. Wasps may view your interest in the nest as an attack and can respond aggresively. Unfortunately, wasp stings are especially dangerous to people with allergies. If you know you are allergic to wasp stings, stay as far away from nests as possible. They frequently build their wasp colony near people in lofts, on porches, in eaves, in a shed or vent, or near entryways to your business or house. All kinds of nooks & crannys attract wasps , particularly queen wasps when deciding where to build a new nest. If you do not want to risk a confrontation with a wasp, you should hire a pest control company to perform the nest removal for you. There are a few different DIY methods you could try, but the most effective way to remove a wasp’s nest is to call a professional pest management company. They will have the tools and experience necessary to safely and effectively remove the nest without putting you, your property or your family at risk.

How to prevent wasp nests

There are a few things you can do to prevent wasp nests from forming on your property:

– Keep wasps away from your property by eliminating potential food sources. Wasps are attracted to sweet things like fruit, so make sure to keep your rubbish bins and bags covered.  Make sure outside bins have tightly fitting lids & keep them at a distance from doors and windows. If you have fruit trees on your property make sure all fallen fruit is picked up. Remember that things like bird feeders, bird baths, and pet dishes will all be good sources of food and water for wasps so they should be located away from your home or business premises.

-Trim back any overgrown vegetation that might provide a nesting site for wasps.

-Eliminate standing water sources, as wasps will often build their nests near water.

-Lastly, seal off any cracks and openings in your home to keep them from nesting inside. Seal all openings in buildings with caulk or caulking compound, and seal any gaps around windows, doors, or vents with weather-stripping tape or caulk. If you have a shed or garage, make sure that it is kept clean and there are no holes in the roof or walls where insects can get in.

-If you see a wasp nest, don’t try to remove it yourself – call a professional pest control company to have it safely removed.

-Use the power of nature! There are some smells thats wasps just hate. Why not plant these herbs and use thier natural repellant power: Fragrant herbs, such as  Eucalyptus, Artemisia absinthium (Wormwood), Citronella, Mentha spicata (Spearmint) and Thymus vulgaris (Thyme) are all good wasp deterrents.
