Wasp and Hornet nests are commonly found in various locations such as the eaves of buildings, attics, lofts, garages, air vents, sheds, brickwork, cavity walls, bushes, and trees. The nest may either be fully visible or hidden, with wasps entering and exiting through a hole serving as the only indication of its presence.
Upon identifying the entrance to a nest, insecticide dust is applied in and around the entrance to eliminate the entire nest. The insecticide utilized is a professional-grade product not accessible to the general public. The off-white powder is applied under pressure using a pump to eradicate the nest. We utilize specialized extendable equipment capable of reaching the majority of high nests. Following the treatment, wasps may become agitated before all are affected by the dust.
We recommend that customers keep all windows and doors closed for several hours after the treatment. Typically, the wasp nest is eradicated within an hour of treatment, although it may take up to 24 hours for all returning wasps to be killed by the insecticide.
Removing the nest post-treatment is not mandatory, as unlike bees, wasps do not reuse old nests. However, if the presence of an old wasp nest in your loft is concerning, it can be removed during a second visit if accessible.
It is strongly advised not to attempt treating a wasp nest independently, as we are professionally trained and equipped with all necessary protective gear.
