Now that winter has officially ended, and spring has sprung once more, the breeding season for pests has started.
All pests want to survive, and ants and wasps in particular have killer survival instincts to protect their colonies. Ants and wasps will choose safe and secluded spots to build their homes, where they can raise their young and have easy access to a great food supply.
Common places for wasps and ants to make their nests are:
• Loft spaces
• Air Vents
• Cavity walls
Your London property is a very desirable place for pests to call home. What a compliment! If you don’t share this view, seek out professional wasp and ant removal services from our team here at Catch-It Pest Control.
If you think there may be a nest on your property, try following the pests in question. Become a dedicated pest stalker, and it won’t take long for you to find their nest. BUT please don’t get too close. Ants can bite and wasps will sting if they feel you’re threatening their colony.
Wasps nests are unique in their papery appearance. They truly are beautiful to look at. Ants build a huge network of tunnels underground, which on the surface turns into a small hill of dirt.
People often believe that ants and wasps need to be killed, and see them as a threat. This is not necessarily the case.
Ants and wasps are actually integral to our ecosystem, and are needed to keep the natural order of things. Destroying them all would be dire for the UK.
The best course of action to take with wasps nests is to have the professionals come and check it out. We will try to relocate the nests to a more suitable location, rather than killing the insects.
Please never try to remove wasps and ants nests yourself. You can place yourself in serious danger by trying to set fire to nests, or drowning colonies with boiled water. It won’t work, and it’s incredibly dangerous.
Give us a call today if you have a nest on your property. We will be out to visit you quickly at a time that suits you, and can move the nest before the pest population turns into a full blown infestation.
