One of the first things that people learn about my job as a pest control expert is that I like to handle wasp nests myself (I even have my own pair of protective gloves!). That’s why when one of my clients requested to have me take care of 8 wasp nests on their property, I made sure to visit them in person with my tools to show them how it’s done properly – and boy did they learn something! It turned out that I had to destroy the nests in 10 separate locations, 3 times each before the infestation was completely wiped out!

1) Overall assessment

This wasp nest is definitely a pest. One look at it, and you immediately recognize that it has been destroying your property for a long time. If you don’t destroy it as soon as possible, it will only become larger and more dangerous! That’s why we have to do something now. According to our estimates, there are around 25 individual wasps in that one nest; I call them individuals because they can be individuals or drones (males). What really matters is that they are all equally dangerous. destruction nid de guepes 77

As I donned my chemical-resistant suit and face mask and armed myself with a smoker and trowel, I thought about what exactly was going to happen. The procedure for each nest would be relatively similar. In order to pinpoint each nest location on a floorplan, my first step would be to use a metal detector to detect metallic strings that connect individual nests together; these strings are made up of excrement or secretions that ants and wasps leave behind as they pass from one nest to another via tubes or tunnels. Once all string nodes were located in accordance with their positions in relation to visible nest entrances, I could proceed with either manual excavation or using insecticide dust that diffused into whatever soil conditions exist at each node.

3) Preparation – how to remove a nest from a wall

When you’re dealing with a nest in a hard-to-reach place, it can be difficult to decide what kind of equipment and protection to use. If you plan on taking down a wasp nest on your own, we suggest wearing full protection at all times. These pests are naturally defensive and can sting multiple times if disturbed. The first step is to get an overview of where the nest is located by using binoculars from a safe distance. We like to wait until dusk when most wasps have returned home for the day.

4) Removal steps on the 1st day

On the first arrival, we surveyed all accessible nests in order to properly identify and evaluate each. After taking a few measurements, we made an estimate for our customers on how long it would take us to successfully complete their request. In total, eight nests were removed from various locations throughout. Here are our removal steps on day one. destruction nid de guepes 77

5) Removal steps on day 2

On day 2, we returned to inspect and clean up any remaining yellow jackets. Once again, what seemed like an easy job had turned into a multiple-day process. In total, we removed eight nests in his attic and eaves—and even one inside his house that we didn’t see on our first visit. Unfortunately, even after all our hard work, they continued to attack us as we left. At one point, I was a bit on my shoulder as I ran outside! It hurts just to think about it now!

6) Results

After a few days, I came back to each of their nests and removed them. This was not easy because they were very aggressive and swarmed around me; they stung my arms more than ten times. At one point, I had to climb on top of a car to get away from them. The removal process is documented below. It shows you what it’s like when an honest pest control technician removes an infestation from your home!
