Wasp nest in roof space or high up.
Removing a nest in roof space should only be done by a professional pest controller wearing the proper protective gear. Please do not try to remove one in your own as you would be putting yourself in danger. In this context ladder work is especially dangerous when being exposed to a swarm of wasps as it can easily result in a fall.
Bee hive VS wasps nest
Bees are not aggressive insects and can often be left alone with any detrimental effect to the household. If the bee hive need to be removed it is best to have a qualified person relocating it.
Do not attempt to remove a bee nest without professional or local authorities advice.
Hornet nest removal
Hornet nests are typically recognised by seeing them coming in and coming out of a tiny hole in the fabric of the nest. If a hornet nest is close to windows, doors or children in general, it is highly recommended to treat it without delay.

Wasp in London
Wasps in London mostly affect residential clients who cannot enjoy their home because of a nest being located in a critical area. A wasp nest removal team can either remove, destroy or treat the wasp nest.
When a wasp nest is found in the loft space hanging off a roof beam, it is often possible to make it fall straight into a plastic bag. We would seal the bag of, and take the nest safely out. In this scenario the results are very much instantaneous.
Alternatively, the pest control technician can destroy the nest using physical means as well as chemical means. In this case you also get instant results, but the remains of the nest stay there, most likely broken up bits on the floor surface.
The most common type of wasp nest removal in London remain the treatment using a DR5 Duster that send highly pressurised insecticidal dust straight through the entry point of the nest. The dust would often reach at the heart of the structure and as a consequences, the nest would die overnight.
How are London wasps?
London wasps are typically of the specie Vespula Germanica or Vespula Vulgaris. It is the common wasps that is so easily recognisable with its typical black and yellow bands.
Wasps are normally found nesting in the fabric of buildings: in air-vents, in masonry gaps, in roof spaces and whatever site a queen will have found suitable in London.
They are surely not as friendly as the originally London-based rugby team of the same name. When wasps are flying about nearby, or feeding on shrubs, it is best to stay clear of them. If you stumble on the nest, do not attempt to remove it yourself as do do not have the right protective equipment.
And if could cannot avoid them, be convinced that requesting a London wasp nest removal technician is by far the safest option.
How to deal with a wasp sting
Wasp stings will often result as an accident. Wasps activity in London tend to send residents into a panic that has harmful consequences.
In most cases wasp stings are only painful. They cause a localised inflammation that will go down within an hour o two without the need of any medication.
But wasps are a serious threat as they may sting you any where. Soft tissues are potentially more at risk that muscle. The worst case scenario would be to get stung in the month or on the tongue. Being stung in the neck may be as perilous.
Individuals that are sensitive to stings are especially at risk. In extreme case an anaphylactic shock may ensue putting lives in danger.
As a pest control technician, I have been stung through my protective gear a few times. Once a job went badly and I got stung 7 times in one setting. By the 7th stung I had lost my countenance completely.
The reality is that the protective gear is not 100% sting proof. I value it immensely as it allow me to concentrate on the job without falling victim of a visceral panic that would otherwise make me fall off a ladder.
Regardless of how sensitive you are to wasps stings, you should avoid wasps and call your trusted London pest control provider for advice.
Big concerns about wasps and pets
Wasps and pets do not always mix perfectly. Dogs are possibly the most likely to learn the lesson than wasps are not to be chased lightly.
The faces of dogs are principally vulnerable to wasps. As the dog is investigating too closely, a wasp will respond to what they consider a threat. Anyhow, most dogs would weather a wasp sting without any fuss.
The concern is when dog try to bite or catch a wasp. Being stung in the mouth or tongue could trigger a swelling that would close his airway. The eyes are also very delicate and a sting could lead to loss of vision. If the wasp sting occur under the fur, the pet will most likely be licking the affected area.
Often applying vinegar on the sting area will alleviate the pain.
If you notice that your pet would suddenly be lethargic, with breathing difficulties and possibly a large swelling extending away from the sting site, you must rush to a vet immediately.
