How do you know?

  • Dead insects or live ones searching for food (worker wasps & hornets will look for food up to about 400 meters from the nest).
  • Noise - constant buzzing or humming. A mature wasp colony can contain between 4,000 - 6,000 individual workers each searching for food and protecting the nest.
  • Nests - hornet and wasp nests are made from chewed wood pulp and saliva, giving them distinctive paper like walls. Queen wasps search for a sheltered spot with easy access to the outdoors to build their nests, making use of lofts, wall cavities, roof spaces, out-buildings, store rooms and under the eaves of buildings. Some species also use hollows in trees as a site for a wasps nest.

What’s the harm?

Untreated wasp nests can lead to:

  • Contamination of foodstuffs - Wasps and Hornets search for scraps of meat and carrion to feed their young on, whilst as adults they prefer sweet sugary things, such as fruits, jams, syrups etc ...
  • Threat of stings — Wasps have a potent sting and can attack in large numbers if disturbed or threatened. On average one in thirty people are particularly susceptible to stings and may suffer anaphylactic shock, which require immediate professional medical attention.

Business Consequences

  • Alarm — customers become uncomfortable or fearful of being stung by wasps and leave your premises.
  • Economics — customers will be weary of returning to your premises and may inform others of their experience, which could damage your goodwill, reputation, custom and eventually your income.
  • Employees - fear of being stung may lead to staffing difficulties with greater absences and problems with hiring new staff.
