Wasp Nest Destruction Glasgow

When Are Nests Built?

Wasp nests will remain active from early Summer until late Autumn to very early Winter. Our wasp nest removal Glasgow specialists have pointed out that wasp colonies are very social animals and adhere to a very stringent seasonal timetable and very rarely break convention.

What Do Wasp Nests Look Like?

Wasps build their nests using wood pulp which they have chewed with their mandibles and their own glue-like saliva. Because of this, their nests have a distinctive paper-like appearance.

Our wasp nest removal Glasgow team find that the majority of wasps colonies will build their homes outdoors. Alternatively, they will establish their nest inside in areas with minimal human activity with an easy route to the outside. Sheltered locations are preferred, such as lofts, eaves, wall cavities, and garages.

Locating Wasp Nests

Even if you do not see a wasp nest directly, there are a few clues that a colony has made their home on your property. One giveaway comes in the form of noticing multiple wasps crawling inside a small hole or crevice in a wall outside.

If you hear wasps buzzing within the walls inside your property, it is clear that these insects have established their nest inside your property. In this event, it is vital that you organise a visit from our wasp nest removal Glasgow team as soon as possible.

Wasp Stings

Wasps are not known to cause significant damage to a property, and although they are not necessarily ‘clean’, there are worse offenders when it comes to spreading bacteria etc. throughout your home.

Nonetheless, as most people know, and have probably experienced, wasps sting on a regular basis and their venom is very painful. If wasps make their home in your garden, every time you step outside can be nerve-wracking. Our wasp nest removal Glasgow team have also noted that many workers may enter your home to search for food.

While wasp stings are painful for everyone, for a lot of human beings stings are much more severe. Anyone who is allergic to the venom will find that the sting is more painful than expected and it will swell up significantly, and quickly.

A smaller percentage of people who suffer from an allergy are in severe danger after being stung. Like with any allergy, there is the chance of anaphylactic shock which can lead to permanent injury and even death without rapid medical attention.

If you suffer from an allergy to wasp venom or are unsure, do not waste any time when it comes to contacting our wasp nest removal Glasgow office.

Removing Wasp Nests Yourself

Wasps are tenacious when it comes to defending their home. The wasps will repeatedly sting, unlike bees, in order to scare you off. Without the right technique and safety gear, anyone who attempts to get rid of a wasp nest will quickly find themselves surrounded.

Wasps have strict roles within the nest which they do not stray from. Sentries at the entrance to the nest will quickly warn others inside that there is a threat, meaning that just a couple of wasps will turn into hundreds in a very short space of time; populations can be as high as 4000.

Our wasp nest removal Glasgow experts are trained to the highest standards and have a wealth of practical experience. Within a matter of ours, our locally-based team will have arrived at your property and removed the nest.

Wasp Species

Common Wasps: This species commonly makes their home in man-made habitations. They can build a nest throughout your home or commercial property, including crevices within walls and under eaves. Hollow trees, bushes, and even underground are also suitable locations.

In comparison to other British wasp species, the Common wasp builds relatively small nests. This means the colony will likely never survive through a Winter because they just do not store enough resources to survive.

Our wasp nest removal Glasgow technicians have highlighted that these wasps thrive in a wide selection of environments due to their robust nature and fantastic ability to adapt. Unfortunately, this includes our own habitations.

German Wasp: This species is not indigenous to the United Kingdom, but it has thrived after being brought here by trade or travelling people. They have taken so well to our environment that they are out-competing other British species.

This species of wasp prefers to make their nest outside in vegetation like bushes and shrubs or sheltered underground. However, they will also settle in lofts and attics where human activity is at an absolute minimum.

Although the majority of German wasp colonies will not survive through a harsh and cold Winter where resources are short, some will. This means they can use the same nest next year and expand even further. It is crucial our wasp nest removal team is brought in as quickly as possible.
