Wasp Extermination is the most common treatment we carry out, usually from the months of June-October we experience high volumes of calls for wasp problems, and 99% of these will result in an extermination of the wasp’s nest.
When exterminating a wasp nest it is common practice to leave the physical nest in place, even after the poison has been applied to it, this allows any foraging wasps not currently in the nest to come back to it, enter and in turn die off from the treatment.
Wasps will never live in another wasp nest other than their own, so there is no risk of other wasps “moving in”. In fact, the wasp’s nest will remain dormant after the extermination treatment has been carried out and eventually deteriorate into dust.
If for whatever reason the nest needs to be removed, this can be done instead however is a premium service and therefore will come with a surcharge. The other option is to leave the nest until it is totally inactive and then either knock it into a bag yourself or call us back out to do this for you (call out charge applies).
