Wasps can exist just as easily in urban and suburban environments as they do in the countryside, in part due to their ability to build their hives in any available space and the easy access to food in the form of food-waste and other insects. Human buildings offer numerous ideal locations for wasps to establish their nests, like wall cavities and loft spaces, although they can often build hives inside of empty containers or even vehicles.
Even a single hive can cause considerable disturbance on a property, although our technicians have often found multiple hives clustered together, particularly on larger properties. The wasps in a hive will cover a lot of ground searching for food, and often when they are far from their nests they do not pose a great deal of danger, as they will generally be widely spread out and their behaviour will be less aggressive.
However, the closer to the hive wasps are, the more dangerous they can be, not only because there will be a far greater number, but also because they have a strong instinct to protect their hive, and even when taking precautions it can be easy to accidentally set off a defensive stinging swarm. Wasps that feel their hive or its members under threat will emit a special pheromone that alerts nearby wasps, who will come as quickly as they can to help attack the perceived intruder, meaning that a wasp attack can rapidly balloon into a serious incident.
Our hive removal treatment at Southwark Wasp Control is designed to take into account the wasps natural aggressiveness and their reliance on their hive. Rather than going for those wasps that are out in the open or attempt to limit their activity with preventative measures, our technicians will almost always go directly for the hive itself.
An operator will spray the interior of the nest with an insecticidal dust, which will incapacitate and gradually kill off the wasps inside, while any wasps out foraging will generally return to the hive to attempt to defend it. When they find the hive has been poisoned, the wasps will be severely disorientated, as they are aware they cannot enter the hive and yet have an overwhelming urge to do so in order to protect their queen, leaving the wasps uncoordinated and unable to act, and eventually they will die out over the night.
