Dealing with a Wasp Nest in Dorset

It’s that time of year again. Our team of pest control technicians are getting more calls from across Dorset regarding wasp nest’s in their home, garden or workplace.

Wasp nests can be a real nuisance if left to grow.

A small, manageable problem quickly becomes a full-scale wasp infestation in no time.

We recommend seeking professional wasp removal as soon as you’ve spotted the nest.

How to spot an active wasps’ nest?

In spring and early summer, wasp nests will be small and roughly about the size of a cricket ball.

They’re made from small pieces of wood and timber, so they’re light brown in colour with a papery appearance.

The nests start small but will grow rapidly until your house or garden seems overrun

with wasps and can be potentially dangerous.

Wasps will build a nest somewhere sheltered and easily accessible… for a wasp!

Specialist equipment allows our technicians to treat nests safely at both ground level and high levels.

Will wasps return to an empty or treated nest?

Wasps will never take over old nests from previous years, so if you find a large nest and no wasps in early Summer, it’s unlikely to be active. If the old nest has been previously treated to get rid of wasps, it’s highly unlikely that any wasps will return.

What’s the best time to get rid of wasp’s nest?

Immediately! A hive or colony of wasps grows incredibly quickly, especially during Spring and Summer.

We recommend seeking wasp removal help as soon as you spot the nest or hive, to

prevent wasps from becoming a bigger problem.

Our professional wasp nest removal treatments are safe, quick and available across Dorset.

Our wasp removal treatments:

  • Use a professional, safe insecticide to eradicate the wasps’ nest.

  • Are carried out with the utmost care and the customer’s safety is at the forefront of each

  • technician’s mind.

  • Detailed treatment reports are supplied following each treatment.

What happens during wasp nest removal?

The insecticide is applied either directly into the nest or i

nto the nest entry point and usually takes 12-24 hours to destroy the nest.

Our Technicians may require access to property loft spaces to treat internal areas, depending on where the wasps have built their hive. 

Wasps nests can be removed from the site as part of a second treatment quotation should the customer wish.
