Wasp infestations are surprisingly common throughout the London area, and the insects have no problem adapting to an urban environment, resulting in frequent confrontations between humans and wasps. London Wasp Control's Westminster office is used to dealing with infestations in the area, and the specific challenges and demands that these infestations can bring when established on human properties.
We stay open every day of the week, year-round, so we can keep pace with the high volume of wasp problems that crop up, and we will usually be able to have a technician in to look at your property on the same day you contact us. All our technicians are BPCA and RSPH qualified, and we guarantee every extermination that we perform, so if you are in need of discrete, reliable and trustworthy service, Westminster Wasp Control offers the most dependable wasp treatment available.
Wasps are typically social insects, which means that they will gather together and act in co-ordination with one-another, sharing a single hive that they are all hard-wired to protect from intruders. Wasps' great capacity for cooperation is also part of what makes them so dangerous, as they communicate with one-another using chemical signals that can draw in wasps from a wide area – sometimes when they have found a good food source, but often when they sense that they are in danger.
When a wasp feels that itself or its hive is at risk, it can rapidly bring other wasps to its location, and when a hive is nearby, not only does this increase the number of wasps ready to respond, but it also increases the likelihood that they will consider an action threatening. Swarms can form very rapidly, stinging and attacking in huge numbers all over a person's body, and the wasps will not stop stinging until they believe that a person has been completely driven off.
It can be easier than many people expect to trigger this sort of attack from a wasp hive, especially since many victims of infestation might not know the location of the hive at all, making it easy to stumble upon accidentally. If you have noticed a high number of wasps on your property, either coming and going or gathering in large numbers around exposed food or waste, then this may very well indicate an infestation, even if the nest itself is hidden – as they often are – in a concealed point on the property, like a wall-space or attic.
Dealing with a hive quickly should always be your priority when you notice an infestation in your house, and our technicians aim to perform removals as soon as they can. Targeting the hive itself is always the quickest and most effective way of getting rid of an infestation, so our technicians will always prioritise this over preventative measures.
In a typical treatment, one of our technicians will spray insecticidal dust directly into the entrance to the hive, which will fill up the nest's interior in a very short space of time, poisoning and killing the wasps within. It is here that the wasps' social instincts will work against them, as any wasps outside the hive and unaffected by the insecticide will nevertheless begin to die out, since they simply cannot survive without the central direction of their nest, typically leaving your property empty of wasps after a night or so.
