Wasp infestations are a common issue throughout the London, including the Barnet area, and wasp populations in urban and suburban areas will very frequently set up their hives on human properties. Wasp removals are one of the most popular services that our company offers, and so we have developed our treatment programme for convenience, reliability and rapid results.
A technician can be sent to your property to evaluate the infestation, generally on the same day that we hear from you, and the time between discovering that you have a problem to having that problem dealt with will always be minimal. We have a clear pricing scheme, and we can always give you a quote and an assessment of your wasp problem before you have to commit to anything.
Wasps are closely related to bees and hornets, and many customers assume that they will behave in similar ways and that they pose similar dangers. However, wasps are consistently the most aggressive species of the three, and possibly the most dangerous; wasps can sting multiple times, unlike bees, and they nest in far larger numbers than hornets do.
Wasps are intensely protective of their hive and the queen inside, and even getting close to a wasp nest can be enough for the insects to consider you a threat. When they do so, they will create a pheromone that alerts all wasps nearby to attack, which can rapidly escalate into a full-on swarm.
Since a single hive can contain up to 20,000 wasps, with a little over half inside the hive at one time, with foraging wasps generally returning to help with its defence, being attacked can result in huge numbers of stings and considerable pain. Those with allergies stand an increased risk, even if their reactions are typically mild, as the sheer volume of wasp venom can potentially push them over the boundary and into a strong reaction.
Due to the volatile nature of wasp infestations, our technicians emphasise both their own safety and that of the customer, opting for a straightforward, fast-acting treatment that will limit the hive's capacity for retaliation. Our technician will apply a highly-concentrated insecticidal compound to the nest itself in a quick burst before leaving the nest in isolation, typically overnight.
The insecticide will exterminate the wasps inside the nest of the course of several hours, and they will generally be too far incapacitated by the initial dosage to mount a response to the treatment. Those wasps that are out foraging at the time of the treatment will return to the hive as soon as they sense it is threatened, yet once they realise that the hive has been contaminated and that they are unable to protect the queen, they will be usually be too disorientated to pose any sort of a threat.
By the morning after the treatment, the wasp population will typically be entirely gone, and any that survived the insecticide or any foragers that somehow survived the night will be unable to re-establish their presence or to respond in force, and will typically die very quickly without the protection and guidance of the hive.
