Professional wasp and hornet control throughout Berkshire

The wasp nest removal service
When it comes to delivering successful wasp and hornet control in Reading, Woodley and Wokingham we have three ways in which we can deal with a nest for you:
Wasp Nest Removal
If we discover that the wasp nest is within physical reach of our technician, we will deal with the nest by injecting a powerful pesticide powder directly into the interior of the nest, our technician will wait a short time and then bag the nest up, removing the entire nest from your property.
The chemicals that we use in the control of wasps and hornets are incredibly fast acting and within 15 to 20 minutes of commencing the treatment the wasps will have died off.
Void Wasp Nest Treatment
It’s likely that we will find that the wasps have built their nest inside a void area that is out of reach so we will be unable to remove the nest in this instance. Once again, the process is similar, our technician will use an insecticidal powder and inject this into the void immediately around the wasp nest.
The powder will penetrate across the entire void and find its way inside the wasp nest and here it will kill off the wasps along with the Queen, the advantage of this treatment is that the returning wasps will come into contact with the powder and also die off.
Non-Toxic Wasp Traps
We can place wasp traps outside the property which entice wasps away from communal areas like patios; these hanging traps physically attract and catch wasps, and the advantage of using these traps is that they are selective; only attracting wasps and flies and not honeybees.
The wasp traps can be used in conjunction with the wasp nest removal service, keeping your home wasp free through the summer no matter where the wasps build their nest. These traps are ideal if you don’t like wasps and want to keep your patio or BBQ area free from visiting wasps, these traps are 100% pesticide free as well as being totally maintenance free – there is no need to clean them out or empty; simple hang up and at the end of the summer just throw the whole trap away.

Frequently asked questions about wasps
Got a problem with wasps? Do you want to know more about wasps and hornets? READ OUR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
We only ever see wasps in the summer, where do they come from?
The Queen wasp emerges from hibernation around mid-April in towns like Reading, Bracknell, Maidenhead, Slough and throughout Berkshire and searches for a suitable nest site, often a hole in a roof leading into the loft or in brickwork leading to a cavity wall. By late summer, an average wasp nest may contain between 3,000 to 15,000 wasps.
Why are wasps so aggressive?
Wasps prey on other insects and as such they have a natural aggressive behaviour which is made worse when a wasp is harmed or crushed as it releases a series of distress chemicals provoking other wasps to attack. Wasps have even been known to attach themselves to an ‘aggressor’ to act as a homing beacon for other wasps to come and attack!
Do wasps eat other insects?
Adult wasps don't actually eat; they feed their larvae in the wasp nest chopped up pieces of insect mixed with saliva and in turn the larvae feed the adult wasps a sugary substance which they drink.
When the Queen Wasp has finished laying eggs in late summer she dies and once the remaining larvae have turned into fertilised males and unfertilised Queen Wasps there is no more food for the wasp 'drones' that have reared them, the nest is now dying and the wasps starving. They leave the nest searching for sugar rich food; fallen fruit, sugary drinks and picnics are all sources of food.
Are hornets different to wasps?
Yes, hornets are different to wasps: currently at large in Reading and throughout Berkshire is the Common or European Hornet; these are much larger than wasps and pack a more powerful sting. Generally, they are very docile, much more so than wasps and if their nest is not causing any problems, they should be left well alone. The least well known hornet, which has not reached any parts of Berkshire or the South East as yet, is the Asian Hornet or Yellow Footed Hornet; these are alien species and have resulted in numerous deaths on the continent. If these are found they need exterminating as they are a potential hazard to public health.
My wasp nest has been treated and now there is a strong unpleasant smell.
There are occasions usually in late summer where a treated wasp nest contains a high proportion of Queen Wasp larvae; these are much larger than the usual drones that you generally encounter and when these die after treatment it means there is a greater volume of liquid within the nest. We treat wasp nests with a dry powder and the actual nest material is made from chewed wood pulp; think of something just a bit thicker than tissue paper.
These nests can sometimes decompose with a strong odour which is similar to rotting fish; these will often dry out due to their location within a cavity wall or the loft, if accessible we can arrange to remove these for you, however its worth noting that wasps DO NOT RE-USE old nests so leaving them does no harm.
