Wasps hives are a persistent nuisance in the warmer half of the year, usually appearing around spring time but often remaining undetected until the summer months, once the nest has had time to grow and the wasp population expand. At the start of the season, wasps are not particularly aggressive, expanding their hive and feeding off aphids, which can actually prove beneficial for a garden.
By the time a wasp nest has reached full size, however, there can be up to 20,000 wasps inside the hive, and their behaviour will become far more aggressive and invasive, feeding on any available fruit nearby, that causes them to become more likely to attack. The area around the hive can become extremely dangerous, as the wasps are typically very proactive in keeping their nest safe, and will treat any presence near the nest as an act of aggression, gathering in large numbers to sting the intruder.
While the wasps will eventually die out when the weather starts to turn colder, they will become more and more of a nuisance the longer they are left. Additionally, once the hive is nearing the end of its life-cycle, the wasp queen will produce up to 200 new queens that will hibernate over the winter and go on to start new hives next season. For this reason, a wasp hive that is left untreated one year can lead to multiple wasp hives the next, ultimately making early extermination preferable in the long run.
To treat a wasp hive, our technicians will typically spray directly into the nest's interior with an insecticidal dust, covering the inside of the nest with a substance that will kill off its inhabitants over the course of the day. This may sound straightforward enough, but the spray we use is unavailable to unqualified individuals, as most over-the-counter sprays will only aggravate the swarm.
We apply our spray under controlled conditions, making sure only to treat the hive itself, which results in minimal clean-up. Once the hive has been sprayed, it will take some time for all the wasps inside to die out completely, and many more wasps that were outside the hive at the time of the treatment will return, yet at this stage they are no longer a threat, and without the safety of their nest these wasps are unable to survive the night.
