Football-sized wasp nest removed from property

MJ Backhouse

The warmer summer weather has seen a huge increase in the number of wasps this summer, and has contributed to some of the biggest wasp nests we have ever seen.

Last month, one of our engineers was called out to a job where the wasps nest was the size of a football. So that it was safe to remove the wasps nest, the engineer had to make a whole and then inject wasp nest foam.

This summer has been very busy for wasps nests and you can see some other projects in our blog. This is not the only big wasp nest we have removed, and here are a few links to other unusual or large wasp nest jobs we have completed over the years.

If you are concerned about wasp activity at your home, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our team today.
