Wasp Nest Treatment In Yorkshire

As the coronavirus / COVID-19 crisis continues, you may be enjoying your lockdown time in the garden, woodland walks or in the parks, and the thing furthest from your mind will be wasp nest treatment.

In doing so, it’s very likely that you will have spotted large solitary wasps in the garden, around houses, sheds and out-buildings.

This is the queen wasp and at this time she is actively looking for a suitable site in which to create a nest.

wasp nest treatmentWasp nests tend to be of a circular structure and, starting with two or three small cells in which the first eggs are laid, the queen extends the nest to a size suitable for a large swarm.

A television wildlife programme recently showed some really fascinating images of a queen wasp gnawing a wooden barn door. What she was actually doing was stripping small sections of timber which would then be chewed to a pulp. This pulp, which is a form of paper, is then used to build the nest. Upon closer inspection, there were many, many marks across the width and length of the door, where the queen had chewed the wood.

Whilst wasps are very effective at flower and tree pollination, as well as helping reduce the population of flies and other insects, it does not alter the fact that they can be very annoying to humans.

Nest building tends to take place during late April and May. Then, in July, as the school holidays approach, thoughts turn to cold drinks, ice creams, picnics and the youngsters playing outside.

Also, it’s around this time that something else less delightful than the sun comes into your kitchen or living room. Our old friend and summer visitor, the wasp – newly hatched from their nests. You know the feeling. The persistent buzz, the annoying presence, and the shouts of: “Help, there’s a wasp in my bedroom.”

You remove that wasp and there’s soon another. And another. And still they come.

Wasps get Everywhere

Yes, wasps are good for the environment and the ecosystem. They play their part in helping pollination and keeping other pests at bay. But you don’t want them living with you.

Wasps can nest anywhere. Sofits, guttering, eaves and exterior wall cavities are all highly desirable residences for wasps.

Also, plants and patios are welcome nesting spots. Even a small hole in a dry lawn can be home to a large nest of wasps.

So, as the sun beckons you for that BBQ or outdoor lunch, the last thing you want is wasps. Those sticky drinks, beer and wine glasses and cakes are all great invitations for wasps from near and far to join you and spoil your day.

And that’s just outside. Inside, homes and offices with abundant spiders and insects provide welcome prey for both mature and developing grubs.

Which is why you must call a local wasp treatment expert to safely locate and remove any nest you find within your premises without delay.

While wasps do not necessarily go out of their way to sting you, they will become hostile if they are disturbed or feel threatened. Ask anyone who has accidentally trodden on one in bare feet or open footwear.

The good thing is that whilst their stings are painful , they do not cause any long term problems, unless you are someone who has an allergy to the wasp’s venom.


Treating a wasp nest can be very dangerous. Which is why you should call for expert help.
