How To Get Rid Of A Wasps Nest

How To Get Rid Of A Wasps Nest

In this Videojug clip, pest control specialist Jim England explains the different stages involved in the activity of getting rid of a wasps net. All the precautionary measures that need to be taken while dealing with the wasps net are explained.

If you look at the wasp net, it's basically made out of too dark wood, very, very inch cut, very delicate and basically effectively like a piping mesh is this sort of brownie gray color. What they do is they harvest wood from garden sheds, rotten fences, deckings and that sort of thing and they came back and they basically use their mouth to build the nest. They are typically going to be suspended somewhere in the loft.

Now, what you don't want to do is to go up in to the loft. If you go and see what's messed up there, because you will get stung. First thing to do is try not to get wrapped in the loft.

One of the best things to do is if you have got a light up there or if you have got a torch, put it out there and leave it there for 5 to 10 minutes and if you got wasps up there, quite often, what will happen is it will all be buzzing around the actual light itself. You really then need a professional help to get rid of the wasps net, because when we go in to the wasps, we dress up a bit like a bee keeper. So, we basically wear a face style that completely protects our face.

We wear gloves. We basically go out there with the appropriate personal protective equipment, and in that way, we are not going to get stung. If you are going to try yourself, chances are you will come a cropper.

So, I definitely wouldn't recommend dealing with wasps is the ideal option. Give it 24 hours after the treatment before you venture out there. And again, it goes back to what we said before, put the lights on, leave the lights on, if you got any wasps out there, because you can't have more than one nest in the loft and sometimes, it's not always obvious.

Sometimes, you focus on the obvious one and miss out on the less obvious one. Give it about 10 to 15 minutes. Have a look.

If there are any wasps in there still, you see them buzzing around the light and at that time, call the experts back in to deal with it. And that's how to get rid of the wasps net. .
