Monster Wasp Nest Removal
Everybody knows just how irritating wasps can be, especially if you’ve been unfortunate enough to come across a particularly aggressive one. The infamous pests with their fondness of meat & sweet foods have caused panic and mayhem at many a summer picnic and barbeque. These situations usually involve a solitary wasp who will eventually fly away to find a new target to pester. However, if you’ve noticed many wasps in the same area it’s possible there is a nest nearby.
Wasps tend to start building their nests around late April and continue building throughout the summer, with the typical nest being home to anywhere between 2,000 – 7,000 wasps! They have a preference to nest in cracks or crevices with plenty of space behind. There are areas of your home that may make for the perfect environment for wasps to build their nest, including the eaves of your roof, garden wall, chimney, attic space etc. During the spring and summer months, it’s advisable to keep an eye on any areas of your property which may be suitable for wasps to nest. This gives you the opportunity to spot any nests early and get in touch with us to take care of your wasp nest removal before it becomes a large problem, as one of our clients experienced last year.
Mat, from our friends over at Evans Above Tree Care, discovered a wasp nest attached to the chimney breast in the attic of his home near Wimborne and knew that contacting Urban Pest Control was the best option when it comes to wasp control in Wimborne. We responded to his call the very same day and when we arrived we were greeted by a truly incredible wasp nest. While they tend to vary in size they don’t usually get much bigger than a football – this one was definitely an exception. As you can see from the photos this wasp nest was massive and football would be a much different sport if it was played with a ball the size of this!
We successfully treated the wasp problem with the use of a specialised telescopic dusting lance which allowed us to tackle the issue from the ground thanks to its reach of over 8 metres, and the wasp activity quickly disappeared.
