Treatment / Removal of the Nest

It is not an option to keep a wasp nest and hope that "it will die off next winter". By the end of the season it will grow to a size of 3000 to 5000 wasps. With an aggressive behaviour, a wasp nest built close to a house will soon represent a danger to passing people or children at play. People allergic to wasp stings should always stay away from the nest until it is properly dealt with.

Wasp sting risks should never be underestimated, as some individuals can get fatal allergic reactions within several hours, even under medical intervention. 

In order to get rid of wasps we advise to remove or treat all signs of wasp nests. A professional wasp control technician uses protective gears and deliver the treatment directly into the nest, killing most wasps within the hour. When accessible the nest can also be taken away.


To treat wasp stings effectively, we recommend the following:
  1. Stay calm: hornets and wasps can sting several times so walk away calmly;
  2. If signs of allergic reaction develop (see below), call immediately for medical help;
  3. If the stinger is still present scrape it out using a finger nail or a bank card;
  4. Wash the sting using soap and water;
  5. Apply ice or a cold cloth in order to reduce the swelling;
  6. Use aspirin to reduce the pain, and take an antihistamine (even if you are not allergic) to reduce swelling;

A normal wasp sting reaction will include swelling, redness, itching and pain all happening within a few minutes.

Severe reactions result in generalised swelling and itching, nausea, sweating, faintness, headache, vomiting or stomach cramps, diarrhea, breathing difficulty, and in extreme cases anaphylactic shock with death resulting.

If you experience the above severe reactions you should call an ambulance immediately.
