“Everyone’s talking about having a bit of a bumper wasp season this year and that there’ll be more nests around because of the warm weather,” says Natalie Bungay, a technical officer for the British Pest Control Association.
Wasp control – nest removal in London
Warmer weather that isn’t too dry is usually better for insects to develop. Last hot summer has been one of the worst when it comes to wasps – our wasp control nest removal service in Hammersmith, Beaconsfield, Chiswick, Ealing, Kensington, Wembley, Windsor and Slough has never been so popular and our pest control services in London will be even more needed as we expect the wasp problem to be even bigger this year!
However, wasps are quite useful – they remove huge amounts of caterpillars which eat our crops and gardens. They also help with pollination. But we understand if you are not so keen on having a wasps’ nest in your home in London.
Wasp nests – they can be a nuisance in London
Why are they so active over August and September? This is when is at its biggest when it comes to workers. There aren’t many larvae to feed. Larvae would produce with sugar to reward the workers. So, when there isn’t much sugar produced, the workers venture out and head straight for your soft drinks or alcohol.
They are not generally aggressive, but they can be a nuisance and even a danger to people if someone is allergic. It is best to contact the pest controller in London, like us, to deal with the wasps’ nest professionally. Wasp control in London prices start from £60 (price for the first nest treated, thereafter £10 for every additional nest).
