Wasps live in social groups. Each colony is established in the spring by a queen. Some nests can have as many as a hundred wasps.
We treat the nest by applying an insecticidal dust into the entrance of the nest at high pressure. Once this has been carried out the wasps will distribute the dust naturally around the nest, killing the queen and the rest of the wasps. This will normally take approximately twenty four hours. You should not try to remove a nest, especially from a roof space, this should be carried out by a professional pest controller. The main hazard is the risk of ‘anaphylactic shock’ which can arise from a single wasp sting. If you have a problem with wasps please contact Diamond Pest Control
