Wasp control: your questions answered

Q: How can I tell the difference between a bee and a wasp?

A: A wasp has a waist, whilst a bee has a rounded shape and is furry.

Q: How can I tell if the wasp nest in my attic is live?

A: Take a look at the nest from as far away as possible. If wasps are coming in and out of the nest, it's still in use; also take a look from the outside - especially on warm sunny days, wasps should be visible against a blue or light grey sky. Key exit points are around guttering or the chimney area.

Q: Should I get rid of a disused nest?

A: It's not essential, because many nests don't get used again. But you need to consider that if the conditions were right for a nest to be sited there historically, the original source of food and protection (such as a tree) may still be there. This means there's a greater chance a new nest will be built on top of the old one.

Q: Do I definitely need to get rid of a live wasp's nest?

A: If it's a new wasp nest you should definitely get rid of it because eventually the wasps will find a way into your home or premises. They will typically find the easiest way through a roof (for example, through light fittings - they especially like downlighters because of the heat generated). They can also eat a hole through a surface if they need to.

Q: Can I remove a wasps' nest myself?

A: If you know what you're doing, this might be OK - but normally we'd recommend that you get a professional in to do this job as wasps can be a major health risk. Managing the safe removal of a wasp nest requires a CoSSH & Risk Assessment that covers your household, neighbours and even passers-by. Don't forget pets and the environment too...

Q: Can I remove a bees' nest or swarm myself?

A: There are special rules around the removal or destruction of some types of bees. Best practice dictates you should only destroy them in exceptional circumstances for example with very young children or if someone has an allergy. The normal practice is to move the nest or swarm elsewhere. At Eliminate, we work with local beekeepers to arrange the relocation of bees' nests unless this is physically impossible (for example, if the nest is in a chimney stack)

Q: The wasps in my attic look huge. What type are they?

There is an increasing variety of wasps in the UK; browse our wasps page for examples. Make sure that you haven't got European/German Wasps or Hornets - these are related to wasps and now increasingly common in the UK due to global warming. Hornets look like wasps but are much bigger and their buzz is deeper.
