Professional Wasp Extermination Services in London By Fantastic Pest Control
Wasps are definitely one of those insects that you don’t want to go and mess with. Commonly confused for bees, these creatures do pollinate plants, but don’t make honey. Once irritated, they sting and they are good at it. If you spot a wasp nest in your back garden, it’s best to get it removed, otherwise, you risk getting hurt. Young children are especially susceptible to severe and even life-threatening allergic reactions if stung by an angry wasp. So, it’s not advisable to try handling the insect’s nest by yourself - wasp nest removal requires professional expertise and experience.
How Wasp Control is Done
A surveyor comes to check up on the situation and the property. What the technician looks for: how big is the nest, how high it is, can the nest be easily reached and sprayed.
To treat a wasp nest the team sprays it with a powder that neutralises the wasps quickly. The exterminator wears protective gear so there's no danger of being attacked.
Wasp control usually requires a single visit only. You can request a follow-up visit if you're worried wasps may return to your property.
The exterminator will let you know some tips and actions you can do to protect your home from future wasp infestation.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can pest controllers work during the Coronavirus lockdown?
A: Yes, according to BPCA, pest controllers are still allowed to visit properties, in order to make assessments and implement pest control solutions. You can check our dedicated article that gives more explanation regarding pest control services during Coronavirus lockdown.
Q: Are wasps aggressive in nature?
A: Only female wasps have the ability to sting and will only do so when provoked. However, if you get too close to a nest, you will almost surely get stung by a wasp.

A: You can either log in or create a new Fantastic account. This is the most convenient way for you to manage and track all the details around your booking slots.
Q: Can the insects build indoor nests as well?
A: Absolutely. In fact, it’s not a rare occurrence for wasps to build nests within attics, lofts, sheds, gardens, garages, and any other place that is warm, dry, and easily accessible.
Q: Can I kill a wasp nest myself?
A: While there are many DIY treatments available on the market, most of them require you to get up close and personal in order to get rid of the wasp nest. Without the proper protective clothing and training, it’s very likely that you will be subjected to a very painful attack as wasps tend to be overprotective of their nests. See some helpful and quick wasp sting treatments in case you get stung.
Q: Alright, how should I deal with the nest, then?
A: The best way to solve your problem is to hire a professional pest exterminator. The specialist will usually be able to come to your aid on the same day and will have all required equipment and protective clothing to tackle the wasp’s nest in a safe and efficient manner.
