Wasp infestations are a frequent nuisance across the UK, not least in the greater London area, where urban and suburban environment results in a high frequency of wasp hives setting up in human properties. Harrow Wasp Control is a dedicated branch of London Insect Control that deals with a large volume of wasp problems in the Harrow area, with consistently successful results.
In addition to a skilled team of exterminators, we also have a strong customer-relations infrastructure, with a phone-line open all week throughout the year, and a free consultation programme that we offer to anyone seeking advice and potential treatment of their wasp infestation, making ours one of the most convenient and comprehensive services on the market.
Wasps are well known for their aggressive behaviour and their tendency to sting when they feel under threat, although these traits are considerably heightened when they are near to their home nest. Not only is the individual behaviour of the wasp more aggressive, but when provoked near the hive or large concentrations of other wasps, the insects will group together to repeatedly sting and harass whoever they see as a danger to their nest.
This hive behaviour makes wasps one of the more dangerous insects that we deal with, and where many insects will relocate to another hiding place when they feel threatened, a wasp swarm will only have one nest, which they are unable to move or dismantle, meaning that they will actively defending it, not backing down until all intruders have been driven off.
The nest itself may not be particularly large, perhaps a few feet in diameter at the most, yet they are often well concealed so as to add extra protection, and the area surrounding the nest will be effectively considered wasp territory as far as the insects are concerned. These nests can make a property exceedingly difficult to live in, and while many nests are in unfrequented spaces like attics or the backs of gardens, they can also take root in vehicles, containers or almost anywhere in a structure, increasing the chances of being stung.
Given wasps' aggressive nature and their intense dependence on their hive, they are impossible to drive off of a property without comprehensively treating the hive itself. Our technicians apply a pressurised insecticidal dust to the nest, which will kill the wasps inside over several hours, typically leaving the hive empty of live wasps by the following day.
Any wasps that return to the hive will be able to sense that it has been insecticidally treated and will not re-enter, yet their overwhelming urge to defend their nest will clash with this survival instinct, leaving the wasps paralysed with indecision and unable to form an aggressive counter-response to the treatment, gradually dying off around the hive's entrance.
