What are the most common wasp nest locations?
Wasps often build nests in quiet, sheltered spaces that have access to the outside. Some of the most common areas we’ve found wasp nests in Hitchin and the surrounding areas include wall cavities, roof spaces, birdhouses, lofts, sheds and garages.
How can I identify a nest?
Wasp nests will vary depending on the species, but are generally made from chewed wood pulp and saliva, giving them a straw coloured or paper-like appearance. Observing and following the flight path of wasps can often lead you to the nest. Avoid going anywhere near the nest if you are allergic.

No, wasps are not an endangered species or protected by the Wildlife Trust and so can be legally treated. If you are finding wasps in your property or on a regular basis outside your property, professional wasp nest removal services are the best answer.
Can I do anything to prevent wasp nests?
Yes, there are a few steps you can take to help avoid wasp nest problems at your property. Check your home, business, garden or grounds in early spring to see if you can identify early signs of nests being built, be careful with where you handle or leave food and make sure to keep bin lids tightly fitted.
