    Signs You’re Dealing With a Wasp Infestation

    Sometimes, the wasp/hornet nest isn’t easily visible. It may be deep within your trees, under the roof eaves, behind shutters or in garden sheds, or hidden behind thick vegetation.

    Here are some signs you might have a nest tucked in somewhere:

    • Increased Wasp Activity: Noticeable increase in the number of wasps flying around your property, particularly near potential nesting sites such as eaves, rooflines, or trees.
    • Visible Nests: Discovering small, papery nests in sheltered areas like under eaves, in attic spaces, or within shrubbery.
    • Buzzing Sounds: Hearing a distinct buzzing sound coming from areas where wasps may be nesting, such as within walls or under decking.
    • Presence of Larvae: You see adult wasps flying around in a specific area. This may indicate the presence of larvae or a developing nest.
    • Aggressive Behaviour: Such as swarming or dive-bombing when you approach certain areas of your property.
    • Unexplained Damage: Damage to outdoor furniture, siding, or other structures. They chew wood to build their nests.
    • Late Summer Activity: You may notice a surge in wasp activity during late summer or early fall. This is when colonies reach their peak size, and foraging behaviour intensifies before winter.

    Dangers of Wasp & Hornets Nests on Your Property

    Sharing your property with wasps and hornets might seem harmless at first, but their nests can pose a number of risks:

    Stinging Hazards

    The most immediate danger is getting stung. Wasps and hornets are territorial insects, especially around their nests. Even accidental disturbances can trigger them to attack, and their stings can be painful and cause swelling. For people with allergies, wasp or hornet stings can be life-threatening.

    Increased Activity Around Homes

    Nests often attract more wasps and hornets to your property, raising the chances of encountering them during outdoor activities. This can be especially concerning if you have children or pets who play outside.

    Potential Property Damage

    While uncommon, wasp nests can cause minor structural damage over time, especially if located in eaves, soffits, or other areas exposed to moisture. The weight of the nest and the wasps' chewing habits can contribute to wear and tear.

    Disruption and Nuisance

    Having a wasp or hornet nest nearby can be disruptive and unpleasant. The constant buzzing activity can be unsettling, and the worry of stings can limit your enjoyment of the outdoor space.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Wasp Nest Removal

    1. How do I remove a Wasp Nest?

    We strongly recommend against removing the wasp nest yourself. You may only endanger yourself and your loved ones as the wasps might get agitated and sting you.

    Buzz Boss has the expertise to carry out safe hornet and wasp removal and ensure your safety. We use humane, eco-friendly removal methods to keep the environment and the wasps away from harm and protect you from their sting.

    2. Are wasp and hornet stings dangerous?

    Wasp and hornet stings can be painful, but for most people, it's nothing a bit of ice and ointment won't fix. The bigger concern is allergies. If you’re allergic to the sting, you can experience trouble breathing, hives, or swelling (especially of the face, tongue, or throat). In such instances, call 911 or get medical attention immediately.

    3. What season are wasps and hornets most active?

    Wasp and hornet activity is seasonal. They're most likely to cause problems during the warmer months, from late spring through early fall.

    Queens emerge from hibernation in spring and focus on building nests. Summer brings peak activity with the highest number of wasps and hornets present. As fall approaches and temperatures drop, activity starts to decline. By winter, nests become inactive, and most wasp and hornet activities die off.

    4. What is the difference between bees, wasps, and hornets?

    While bees, wasps, and hornets might look similar from a distance, here are some key differences:

    • Bees tend to be rounder and fuzzier with hairy bodies. Wasps and hornets have a thinner, smoother appearance with narrow waists.
    • Bees are vegetarians, collecting pollen and nectar for food. Wasps and hornets are carnivores, feeding on insects and other small prey.
    • Bees have barbed stingers that get stuck in the victim, causing them to die after stinging once. Wasps and hornets have smooth stingers, allowing them to sting repeatedly.
    • Bees live in large, cooperative colonies with a single queen. Wasps and hornets can be solitary or social, with some social species having smaller colonies than bees.

    5. What is the best time to remove a wasp nest?

    The ideal time is definitely late evening or at night, as wasps/hornets are less active during the night, reducing the risk of encountering them during removal. Also, a nighttime disturbance is less likely to trigger a defensive response from the entire colony compared to daytime removal.

    6. Will wasps return to a sprayed nest?

    There's a chance wasps may return to a sprayed nest, but it depends on a few factors:

    • Thoroughness of Treatment: If the spray application wasn't complete or missed some wasps, they might return.
    • Nest Damage: If the nest itself wasn't significantly damaged or destroyed, surviving wasps could try to rebuild in the same spot.
    • Nearby Nests: If there were other untreated nests nearby, wasps from those colonies could investigate the sprayed nest.

    For guaranteed removal and to prevent wasps from returning, it's best to call Buzz Boss. We ensure complete nest elimination and can advise on preventative measures to discourage future wasp activity.
