Wasp & Bee Removal FAQ
The typical way of understanding whether you have a wasp or bee infestation would be noticing the presence of the insects themselves. We aren’t talking about the occasional sighting of a wasp or bee as this is perfectly normal, but we are referring to large volumes and numbers of these insects that usually gather in swarms. During the summer months, it is common to notice more significant amounts of wasps and bees flying around, but you should use your initiative to understand whether you have an abnormal number of insects gathering around your property. If you are unsure whether the presence of wasp and bee activity in your home is unusual, feel free to contact a member of our team for advice. Our experts are always available to answer any of your questions or concerns, giving you peace of mind that we are here to help. You may notice a nest in your property, garden or outbuildings. If you find what appears to be a nest, then you likely have a problem.
If you feel that you might have a wasp or bee nest located somewhere on your property, there are a number of familiar places where you could look. Be sure to regularly check areas that these insects are likely attracted to such as beneath attic roof eaves, inside wall cavities, inside bird boxes along with outbuildings and garages. Bees nests usually differ in appearance between the various species of bee. Much like wasps, bees prefer to build their nests in dark, dry cavities in a variety of unexpected places. There is a strict criterion that these insects tend to follow when searching for the perfect nesting space. The location must be secluded and often sites that are undisturbed or abandoned make an ideal choice.
We always advise you contact a member of our team the moment that you notice a large volume of wasps or bees around your property. Keep in mind that during periods of warmer temperatures, the number of wasps and bees will naturally increase. The reason for the spike in activity is due to the insects emerging from hibernation and will gradually max out during the Autumn months. However, excessive amounts of these insects, localised to one area, generally indicates a problem. If you find a nest located somewhere on your property, you need to treat it correctly before the infestation becomes an established colony.
Never attempt to remove the insects or their nests yourself. Many people are unknowingly susceptible to developing allergic reactions if stung by a wasp or bee. This makes the process extremely dangerous, and in some cases, allergies can be so extreme that they require urgent medical attention. Eradicating an infestation early on will reduce the chances of an attack and will make the process a lot easier than if left to fester. By the end of the summer period, wasps and bees become incredibly aggressive as they need to work harder to source food and pollen.
While you don’t have much control over whether these creatures choose to invade your property, you can take action to stop the problem escalating. If you find a nest outside your property, the best thing that you can do is immediately close all doors and windows. This will prevent the insects from gaining entry into your home and potentially constructing an additional nest inside. Ensure that your children and pets are safely inside and contact a pest controller immediately. Worker bees, in particular, are attracted to flowers and budding trees, enabling them to collect pollen on their legs and bodies while indulging in the nectar. If you find yourself at risk of a wasp or bee invasion, try planting flowers as far away from the entrance of your home as possible to keep the insects at a safe distance. Maintain a high-quality exterior of your property by regularly checking for cracks and openings in the walls, chimneys and roofs.
