By treating at entry point level, the insecticidal dust will kill the nest and by the next morning all will be over.

What is the most efficient method of wasps nest removal in London?
By far destroying the nest structure itself using a wasp nest killer spray, or taking in away within a sealed plastic bag will give immediate results. However at the beginning of the season, the queen will have started a nest that may be no larger than a ball of golf. In most cases it will be concealed to start with within the void space of the outer wall, or at the back of a roof beam.
But as the season advances, the nest will grow in size and will often become apparent. It is mostly in roof spaces that we have a chance of seeing very large structures. In this case the most efficient method is to destroy it right there and then. Kill the wasps as they fly out and smash the wasps nest until nothing is left. In some instance it is even possible to wrap a plastic bag around the nest or to make it fall inside it.
A large wasp nest mean thousands and thousands of angry wasps flying out to defend the nest. So it is important to approach it in a very systematic fashion. And this can only be achieved wearing the appropriate protective gear. This method should only be attempted by a professional if the conditions allow it.
What is the safest method of wasps control in London?
Otherwise, the safest wasp control method is to treat from a safe distance, and from the outside of the building. Hence we use a specially designed duster, that send pressured insect powder straight in the entry point of the wasp nest.
The dust will often reach deep inside the nest right away. But is other case, the entry point that is visible from outside is not immediately adjacent to the nest. In does do matter as wasps will still make their way in as usual. Wasps will coat themselves of insect powder and bring it in.
In most cases, the nest is dead by the following morning. If there is still some activity after 4 days, we recommend our clients to call us back in free of charge.
What are the typical signs of wasps infestation in London?
London has been extensively urbanised with many terrace houses and many purpose built block of flats. But even so most of the wasps nests are not even noticed by the residents. And it is better that way too. Wasps are just another part of wild life, and they have their role to play as pollinators and natural pest control for the agriculture.
Having said that wasps can also be considered as a pest whenever they have a negative impact on our buildings and on its residents.
In order for wasps to nest inside a property, a queen will first need to make its way in. It is not difficult as there are plenty of gaps between tiles, at the base of the roof, and many more all around. So we cannot stop wasps to get inside a structure as a whole, but at time it is possible to stop them from flying through a window or gaining access through a fireplace.
Honey Bees and Bumble Bees
- Honey bees and Bumble bees are not aggressive species and should be left alone as they are beneficial to Nature. If unprovoked they won’t sting you. By the time you take notice of the nest it will already be near its natural end (by late July).
- Even though they are not protected by law, wild bees are in danger of extinctions . We have used Velcro nets on window to stop the bees from coming in rooms in the past with great success. So be innovative and try looking for any alternative solutions, after all they will only be active a few months.
Bee keepers can come to remove a nest and relocate it at no charge, or for a similar fee than what a pest control company would charge to kill them.
If the nest is inside cavity walls do not block the entry point. It would drive bees looking for an alternative exit and they may end up into your living space. If the bees pause an unacceptable health and safety risk to the residents, the way forward as a last resort may be to kill them.
Note: There is a shortage of feral honey bee colonies (wild bee). However bee keepers can easily and economically purchase honey bee lines from firms that raise them artificially. Thus, it is not always worth the effort for bee keepers to remove a wild nests. But there are still plenty of Nature enthusiast you can rely on.

Bee nest VS wasps nest
As a pest control company we do take care of the environment as well. Bees and wasps are not the same insect at all since bees are protected by regulation and their nests need to be relocated.
Do not attempt to remove a bee nest without professional or local authorities advice.
Hornet nest removal
Hornet nests are typically recognised by seeing wasps coming in and coming out of a tiny hole in the fabric of the building. If a hornet nest is close to windows, doors or children in general, it is highly recommended to treat it without delay. The same goes when you need to carry out some maintenance work in the roof space and that workmen are threaten by a wasp hive.
