A word of warning about “Wasp nest destroyer” foam

Some members of the public have embarked on their own D.I.Y wasp treatments with disastrous results!

Wasp nest destroyer foam has become a very popular DIY product and used in the right way it can be extremely effective. However, if you read the label carefully it quite clearly states that products of this type should only be applied directly to the nest structure and NOT to the external hole the wasps happen to be using. Blocking an active wasp entry point in brickwork or similar can and frequently will cause the wasps to seek an alternative route out . . . usually filling the house with angry wasps!

Wasp nest destroyer foam should only ever be used where you can physically see most if not all of the actual nest structure and not just an entry hole. Always read the label!

Pub Landlord Case Study

A few years ago the garden of my local pub was mobbed by wasps. It was a lovely garden but an absolute arm waving nightmare to have a meal or a drink in!

I spoke with the licensee and he told me that head office had sent a pest controller in to deal with it and allegedly he had done all he could. But the place was still swarming with wasps. I managed to convince him to allow me a one-off free survey. Within twenty minutes I had identified six very active wasp nests right on the boundary of the garden!

I then give him a very competitive quote to deal with all six and after much deliberation via head office he agreed to go ahead.

Less than 20 minutes of takings over the bar covered the cost of my proposed procedure and the pub managed to accommodated a good level of additional customers per hour during busy times throughout the hot summer in question. Had he not agreed his otherwise busy garden could have remained almost empty.

Motto: If you don’t look you won’t find!

As a professional pest control contractor I find it sometimes pays to look just that bit further than the boundary fence!
