Wasp Control v Removal of Nest to Destroy Wasps
It might come as a surprise for many but you better believe me this: „You do not need to physically remove a nest to be rid of the wasps“.
While it takes 6+ weeks to raise new wasp workers in the nest from egg to adult it still happens a large number of wasps suddenly appear on the premises in the middle of the main wasp season (which runs between May and October in Scotland) as if out of the blue. This phenomenon may be attributed to by unprofessional wasp nest removals. Amateurs mistakenly think that if they knock down, hose down, or by some other means destroy a wasp nest the wasps from the nest then die. It is a myth. Homeless wasps rebuild a new nest within just a couple of days in vicinity of where the old wasp nest would have been.
Instead of physically destroying and/or removing active wasp nests (called also wasp bikes) you should have them chemically treated to have your property rid of wasps reliably and safe. Treatment of wasp nests is the most frequently requested pest control service by both, our domestic and commercial clients in Greater Glasgow, Ayrshire and from across western Scotland during summer months.
