0161 452 3165
Leigh wasps’ nest controllers take care of wasps’ nests across the complete Leigh Pest Control operation for a preset cost of just £35.00, 7 days per week which includes evening hours and the bank holiday Monday.Leigh wasps’ nest control isn’t going to charge more or try pushing the cost up once we appear on location and we operate in the evenings, therefore it won’t be a great problem to visit you after you get home from work or on Saturdays and Sundays etc. And the fee stays at £35.00. It will not change! (The lone exception to this rule is in the case of a late season wasps’ nest, from September forwards, where an optional procedure to your attic may be needed.)
To start with, please make sure that you really do have a wasps’ nest, you’d be astounded at how regularly we are called out to what’s meant to be a wasps’ nest and it turns out to be bees, particularly solitary bees in the early spring. If you have a wasps’ nest you will notice loads of wasps coming and going from one spot, if they’re solitary bees they’ll be entering a lot of holes just about everywhere in the brickwork, especially airbricks and weep holes in pvc window frames. These solitary bees are unhazardous and they cannot sting and no actions are possible or required. As a rule of thumb you can’t have a live wasps’ nest until at the very minimum the middle of May due to the lifecycle of the wasp. Any detected before mid-May will be bees with no trace of a doubt. Very few insects stimulate fear as the wasp with lots of people reacting very badly to their stings. Sadly each and every year in the UK individuals do die because of receiving a wasp sting, often after inadvertently annoying the nest.
Professional wasps` nest controlIf you learn that you’ve a wasps’ nest then please phone Leigh wasps’ nest control directly. Don’t make an effort to handle the nest personally, it’s extremely hazardous and you might possibly sustain many stings. Also, and even more important don’t attempt to close the nest entrance with mastic or mortar etc., you’ll push the wasps directly into the premises and also when we get there we require the access to be unsealed so as to execute the work. Over almost all of the summer time getting rid of a wasps’ nest is generally a simple procedure of treating it using a little bit of pesticide and the returning wasps distribute it about the insides of the nest, inside an hour or so the rest of the nest is dead. As with any other pest management organisation Leigh wasps’ nest control never actually remove a wasps’ nest, we purely destroy it, there’s nothing at all physically removing it, the nest is only paper and will away over a period of time. Leigh wasps’ nest control will endeavour to take care of your wasps’ nest with a same day service if at all possible but definitely within just 2 days at most. We function until it goes dark every single day except Saturdays and Sundays when we stop at 7.00pm but if you wish to have a nest treated while you are you are not at home you can pay us on line via Paypal. Click here to go to our specialist website and search for the Paypal link in the sidebar. Be certain to call and tell us that you have paid and inform us where on your home the nest is located. We will need you to leave unrestricted any gates we have to go through to reach the nest. Leigh wasps’ nest control have a preset fee of just £35.00 and if there is a second nest on a single house then your second wasps’ nest will be disposed of free of charge. A 3rd or any subsequent nests will be dealt with at a supplementary charge of £10 per nest. Nests on neighbouring buildings are charged at the full £35.00. Please ensure before getting in touch with us that you do actually have a wasps’ nest and what you are seeing are not solitary bees. If we call out to what prove to be solitary bees then there is nothing to be done as they are stingless and unhazardous and we will charge you a £25 call out fee. This is particularly likely to be the case with any ‘wasps’ that you see before June.
Nest Progress through the summerA wasps’ nest starts at the end of spring in most cases around early April when the queens awaken and begin the process of nest making. In comparison to honey bees, only queens survive the winter, the remainder of the colony having died off the previous winter. The queen forms a little nest from ‘wasp paper’, which she produces by mixing up rotting wood with saliva. This basic nest is about the dimensions of a golf ball, within it she lays something like 20 eggs which hatch out into larvae. These she sustains with various insects until they pupate and hatch into fully fledged wasps. These juvenile wasps will then take control of nest building while the queen will remain within the nest producing eggs. This complete process will require a few weeks and it’s unusual indeed to find a wasps’ nest before to June. The most active period of nest development is generally in June and Leigh wasps’ nest control always estimate that the wasps’ nest season generally starts around the third week in June. If left untreated the nest proceeds to build over the summer time and dependent on temperatures and accessibility to food will contain around five thousand – 30,000 wasps at its optimum. When the worker wasps feed the larvae inside the nest they’re repaid by the larvae which express a sweet sticky substance that the wasps crave and subsequently this is their encouragement to sustain their young. Up to approximately August time the nest creates only unfertile females but as the days begin to draw in it will make its final set of larvae which are new queens and males. Generally a nest will produce up to two thousand new queens. Normally these new queens will mate and after that hibernate for the cold months of winter. It’s at this stage when wasps have a tendency to be their most bothersome. When the nest is no longer generating young, the worker wasps are lacking their sweet fix and set out needing sweet foods. They start feeding on fermenting fruit and as they are basically out of work they transform into a annoying pest. It is now when the majority of stings occur. It’s also the moment when dealing with a wasps’ nest becomes significantly more complicated since when the queens emerge they will no longer return to the nest and so are not killed by any pesticide inside of it. At this time of the year we have countless stories of individuals getting a significant number of wasps within their dwellings everyday, these are the new queens searching for hibernating places. Many Local Councils at this point of the season will advise people to die naturally as ‘it should go away soon’. This is often in reality the very worst thing you can do given that the queens will appear making the complete job more tricky. Once this producing of queens has begun, typically from mid-September, it is generally necessary to perform extra work, for instance smoking or fogging the attic space to eliminate these queens which obviously carries extra expenses. The best guideline Leigh wasps’ nest control can provide is when you’ve got a wasps’ nest get it eliminated in advance of September and this will save you lots of trouble. Left to its own devices a wasps nest can endure up until the first main freeze of wintertime, they live later in to the the autumn months than some people expect. Leigh wasps’ nest control regularly tackle a number of wasps’ nests even into late November and December and the latest we’ve destroyed an active nest was Christmas eve! When the cold comes the queens hibernate and all the other wasps, workers and males, die off. The nest itself is then spent, it will never be made use of again and consequently there isn’t any advantages at all in making an attempt to get rid of it.
More about waspsA wasps’ stinger is a altered egg laying tube and because of this only female wasps are able to sting but few would be prepared to gamble on guessing the right sex of the wasp confronting them. In Britain we now have 3 varieties of pest wasps, Vespula vulgaris or the common wasp, the German wasp, Vespula germanica and a recent invader from Europe which established itself here in the 1980s Dolichovespula media. There are more varieties of wasps in the UK however they do not trouble us as undesirable pests. We have the European hornet, Vespa crabro in the British Isles, largely confined to the southerly counties but Leigh wasps’ nest control did contend with a hornets’ nest around the Knutsford area in the summer of 2012, however it was the first we’d ever seen this far north. There is no need for Leigh wasps’ nest control to recognize the species of wasp we’re eradicating to be able to destroy the wasps’ nest. All of the pest species have a similar biology and react to exactly the same exact treatment. What governs the number and dimensions of wasps’ nests is not the severity of the past winter but the weather condition in the spring. The hibernating queens can live through any amount of cold but the worst of all scenario for them is exactly what happened in 2012. There was a remarkably early warm period for about six weeks from mid-February and all over March. This brought the wasp queens from hibernation early but unfortunately for them it turned much colder and then there wasn’t any food for them so they starved. As a result the summer of 2012 came to be a bad summer for wasps.
