Wasp infestations are one of the most common insects problems in the London area, with hundreds of houses affected every year, peaking during the summer season when wasps are at their most aggressive and their populations at their largest. Richmond upon Thames Wasp control has the resources to deal with the peak-season rush, and we have a team of qualified professionals on hand every day of the week to respond to the problems of local customers.
All our technicians go through a rigorous accreditation process by the BPCA and the RSPH, which enables them to operate safely in wasp situations and to use equipments and techniques unavailable to amateurs and smaller operators. You can phone us throughout the week and receive a full assessment of your problem and a quote for a removal free of charge.
Wasp attacks are often the result of disturbing a hive or provoking a wasp in the proximity of many others, and yet while it may seem straightforward enough to simply avoid the insects or to be careful around them, unfortunately this is not always an option. Wasps can build their nests in very close proximity to human beings, often in lofts, eaves, garages or gardens, and the closer to the hive you are the greater the chance that the wasps will consider your actions to be aggressive, no matter the precautions you take.
Wasp nests can host wasp populations reaching as high as 20 or even 30 thousand individual wasps, and they co-ordinate their movements using a series of chemical scents, which makes it easy for them to gather together in large numbers when one of the hive locates a large food source. It also means that wasps that believe they are under attack, or wasps that have been killed, will send out a chemical distress signal that can draw hundreds of other wasps to blindly sting and attack anyone in the immediate area, leading to dangerous stinging incidents.
Many customers come to us after experiencing attacks like these, which can often be traumatic and exceedingly painful, although the situation can become genuinely dangerous when children, the elderly or the allergic are attacked. If you see a wasp hive on your property, or even if you have simply noticed a large number of wasps nearby and want to see if you have an infestation, early action is always the best way to prevent an attack from happening.
When you contact us at Richmond upon Thames Wasp control, we will aim to have a technician on your property and evaluating your wasp problem on the same day. A full investigation of the property will be necessary to locate the hive (or to make sure that there is only one hive, as there can be several in close proximity to one-another) and to establish the number of wasps involved.
When our technicians are satisfied that they have fully assessed the infestation, they will spray any wasp nests they find with a pressurised, high-powered insecticidal dust that is deadly to wasps. This spray will work over the course of a day or so to incapacitate and kill all wasps in the nest, including the queen, and once the nest has been compromised and the queen killed, the entire swarm, including wasps not touched by the insecticide, will very quickly die off.
