Sometimes immediate wasp nest removal is vital. In one particular case, having a wasp nest in a shed, with angry insects buzzing around, meant a loss of a day’s wages for 3 people, so it was absolutely essential for us to react quickly.
Here is our client’s description of the events…
Wasp nest removal – Client’s story
“I had been planning a shed and garden clear out for some time but as it was too much work to do on my own, I had employed a local firm to help. We opened the shed and within seconds of dragging an old cover out, we were surrounded be a swarm of wasps. We tried to chase them away with a fly spray, but after a couple of nasty stings, we beat a hasty retreat. My arms hurt like hell and I was not in a mood to play around. I called in the “heavies”.
I found Onguard Pest Control on the internet and gave them a call. They explained that the best way to get rid of wasps was to use a powder spray on the nest in an evening when all the wasps were at home and that by morning all of them would be dead.
I explained that I had two people working for me that day and needed it done immediately. The Technician was on his way to another call but agreed to make a detour and use a wet spray for more immediate results. He explained that would not kill any wasps that were not in the nest and that the wasps returning later in the day would not be happy. I didn’t care… I needed to get rid of them now so I could continue with the clear out.
Keith arrived 40 minutes later and after getting kitted out in his “wasp suit”, he attended to my problem. He sprayed the wasp nest and treated the surrounding walls to help kill the wasps that were not “at home”. Within half an hour they were dead. The odd returning wasp slowed us down occasionally but we were able to get on with clearing the shed and surrounding garden.
Keith’s prompt response saved me having to pay my clear out team to come back another day. I would recommend his service to anybody.”

Do you have a wasp nest problem?
Sometimes wasp nest is hidden from sight and you may not be aware that you have a problem, or how serious this problem is.
When you see quite a few wasps buzzing around in your garden, don’t ignore them. There might be a wasp nest nearby. Wasps often build their nests in garden sheds, trees or attics, so you will not be able to see it until it is too late.
It’s best not to investigate, or poke around yourself, but call a professional pest exterminator who will be able to determine quickly whether you have a serious problem or not.
Onguard Pest Control have IPCA trained wasp nest removal technicians who can respond quickly and effectively, preventing you, your children or your pets from getting stung.
