What does a wasp nest look like?

You might only first notice that you have a wasp nest problem when you see wasps coming and going from a certain area such as the facia or barge boards of your house. This means the nest itself will be tucked away in the loft. In these cases usually the next will be treated from the outside. However the video above shows what nest acutally looks like. At the size in the video it will contain approximately 2000 wasps ready to sting. 

A customer from Oxford found this wasp nest in a garden trailer. While pulling back the tarpaulin cover you can see it fell off. A dangerous situation and hence we were called for wasp nest removal. It's worth noting the last part of the video where wasps are coming back to the area the wasp nest was removed from. This will continue to the end of the day. Contact us now for advice and to book


How to get rid of a Wasp Nest

Finding a wasp nest can be quite stressful. If you can see the nest similarly to the video shown in the "what do wasps nest look like section", then a foam or spray can be applied to the nest. This usually instantly kills the nest, however wasps who are out foraging will return and look for their nests so it is important to keep clear of the area until the nest day as the wasps will be aggressive. As long as the correct vale is worn a foam or spray should be able to get rid of the wasp nest.

It is far more common to not actually be able to see a wasp nest as the Queen wasp usually starts her nest tucked away in a cavity. This is so the wasps nest is safe, warm and hidden. The numbers entering and leaving the wasps nest  will increase as the was season builds through the summer. This is when the nests are usually noticed and we treat them.


The reality is killing a wasp nest tucked away is quite hard unless the correct equipment is used. Generally we use a tool called a Dustick. It's best described as an expensive bike pump that pushes powder into where the wasps are and into the nest. They then react much like the video taken below of a nest in a boat of all places. The nest will calm down after an hour as the nest dies.

The most important point when removing a wasp nest is health and safety. If a nest is aggressive and attacks you this quickly develops into a very serious situation. Below is a picture of a team member just about to treat a nest with his vale on although yet to put on a safety mask. Nothing less than a vale should ever be worn. At Pure pest Solutions we offer a wasp nest exterminator service that is guaranteed so why not get in touch and we can take care of everything. We literally treat hundreds of nests per year safety and perfectly. Get in touch today!

What is the Wasp life cycle?

A wasp nest begins life when queen wasps from the previous year awaken form hibernation in April or May time. You may notice large wasps that could be mistaken as Hornets flying around in the spring sun bumping into objects such as walls. The queen wasps are looking for warm areas to begin forming a nest that will grow throughout the year. Sometimes you will see signs in your loft that you have had queens living in your house in the form of small nests that have simply failed. The expansion of the nest will continue until as late as October or November when the nest will die. Hornets have a similar life span.

It is important to kill the nest as, at the end of the season before the nest naturally ceases, around six more queen wasps are produced ready to begin hibernation for the next season, making the issue worse. In fact, over winter take a look in your loft and you may well see what look like large dead wasps but are actually sleeping queens waiting for the summer.


If you see wasps on fences and wooden garden furniture sitting they may well be chewing the surface gathering material of a nest nearby. They literally add more and more on to increase the nest size until up to 10,000 wasps are inside. That's a whole lot of sting! Get in touch now for advice and to book in


The life cycle of Bees varies from wasps, as Bees are around through spring and disappear during July. Bees are important to humans for pollination and there numbers have been seen to fall in recent years. This has largely been attributed to the increased use of pesticides on an industrial scale within farming. In some circumstances such as customers being allergic to bee stings bees hives can be removed or destroyed. Please call for more information on this. 


As a responsible pest control company initially we advise customers with Bees to see if the British Bee Keepers Association ( can come and remove problem bees to rehome them. When this is not possible a pest controller can carry out a controlled removal following the various protocols required.
