Apex Pest Control Reviews
Wasp Control in Yorkshire, UK
As the winter chill begins to wane and the beautiful spring flowers start to bloom, some bugs and pests also begin to awaken from their winter hibernation. Among the many creatures, you’ll start to see rearing their heads as the weather gets warmer are wasps and bees.
Queen wasps emerge in the spring and begin to build their nests in protected areas such as wall cavities, roofs, tree trunks, attics, and more which can quickly escalate into full-blown infestations if left to thrive. Although wasps do play a roll in hunting certain other pests, they can be dangerous to keep around certain areas.
Unlike most bees, wasps will aggressively protect their hives, often resorting to attacking potential threats in large numbers. This, combined with their powerful and sometimes deadly stings, can pose a real threat. This is why it’s better to err on the safe side and remove a wasp nest before it becomes a problem.
What are wasps?
Wasps, also sometimes referred to as yellow jackets or hornets belong to a group of insects known as the Hymenoptera. The Hymenoptera group also consists of sawflies, ichneumons, bees, and ants.
While there are many species of wasps, the social Vespidae family are the ones which cause a reason for concern. Vespidae wasps are relatively large and feature long bodies divided into three distinct sections. Their bodies are banded in yellow and black or yellow and brown.
The two most common species of wasps that are likely to be found nesting in buildings in the UK are the:
- Common Wasp (Vespula vulgaris)
- German Wasp (Vespula germanica).
The larger Hornet (Vespa crabro) may also nest in buildings but is most common in warmer, more southern regions.
The nest usually consist of a single queen wasp and up to 5000 worker wasps who are very protective of the nest and their queen. While a nest will often start in the early spring, they will reach their largest numbers in the warmest summer months. Due to this, it’s always best to eliminate a wasp threat early in the season before it has a chance to grow.
Identifying if you have a wasp problem
It can be common to see a wasp or two every now and then in the spring and summer, but how do you know if they are nesting somewhere in your home or business?
Seeing signs of a hive or nest is not always an indication of an active nest or infestation. This is because nests are usually only active for one season before being abandoned for the winter.
So remnants of a former inactive nest may be found. That being said, it’s always a good idea to approach any potential nest with caution.
Wasp nests often resemble a thin, greyish brown, papier-mache type material and are often built in a honeycomb shape or will appear as a paper delicate brown mound with a single opening. Wasp nests are usually found in areas which are protected from the elements while still being accessible from the outside.
You can often find nests in wall cavities, roof spaces, bird boxes, sheds or garages. If any live wasps are spotted near a nest, it is highly likely that the nest is active.
For instances where the physical nest may be hidden inside a wall or building, look for excessive wasp presence in a particular area. If you are frequently seeing wasps in a specific place, chances are there is a nest nearby.
If you suspect that there may be a wasp nest in your home or property, it’s best to consult a professional to investigate the situation further.
One of the qualified pest control professionals at Apex Pest Control will be able to safely determine the extent of the infestation and help you formulate a plan to eradicate the problem.
Don’t Wait to Deal with that Wasp Nest.
As mentioned above, queens begin to build their nests at the first sign of spring. As the months grow warmer, their nest will quickly grow. A relatively small nest can become a massive nuisance in the height of summer. By eliminating the problem, in the beginning, you’ll save yourself a big headache later on.

Why you should opt for professional wasp removal services
While the internet is flooded with advice on DIY wasp removal, we highly recommend trusting this often dangerous endeavour to the nearby wasp control professionals. Unlike some other stinging insects like honeybees, wasps can be highly aggressive.
When their nest is attacked, wasps tend to rely on the power of numbers to defend their territory, stinging and attacking in unison. For anyone with even a mild allergy to wasp stings, this can be quite a dangerous situation, resulting in the need for medical attention or in some cases loss of life!
A professional wasp exterminator and removal service, like the team at Apex, will come equipped with the expert knowledge, proper safety equipment, professional pest control products, and the know-how to navigate tight spaces to handle the job quickly and efficiently.
