Wasp Removal Experts
Wasps are great for pollinating flowers and getting rid of small, pest-like insects, but they are known to be aggressive and can inflict multiple stings, especially when their nest is disturbed. Wasps often build their nests in hard-to-reach areas such as attics, eaves, or underground, making removal even more difficult. At Acorn, we’ve got the necessary training and protective gear to safely approach and remove wasp nests, minimising the risk of injury to you and your family and damage to your property.
We’ll always ensure that your wasp infestation is completely eliminated, preventing the possibility of future stings or nesting. We’ve been dealing with wasp nest removals for over 30 years, so our wasp removers know exactly how to get them off your property quickly and humanely.

Swarm, hive, and Wasp nest removal in Manchester
Wasp swarms can be safely and effectively removed using a variety of methods, including insecticide sprays, traps and physically removing them.
Large wasp nests can cause structural damage to buildings and homes. The weight of the nest, combined with the activity of the wasps, can weaken wood and other materials. Because wasps are attracted to sugary foods and drinks, having a nest on your property can also increase the chances of other pests, such as ants and flies, being attracted to the area.
If you have a wasp nest in an area that cannot be easily accessed then, as a very last resort, we will use a fast-acting pesticide to kill them quickly.

How to protect against Wasps
Why do I need to protect against wasps?
Wasp stings can cause pain, swelling, and allergic reactions. In severe cases, a wasp sting can even be life-threatening. Taking preventative measures such as avoiding wasp nests and wearing protective clothing can help reduce the risk of being stung.
How should I protect against wasps?
Protecting your home against wasps can be done by sealing all openings and cracks in your home’s exterior, and covering all rubbish and food sources. These preventative measures can significantly reduce the likelihood of wasps building nests near your home.
What is an effective prevention for wasps?
Keeping your outdoor areas clean and free of debris can also help prevent wasps from building nests nearby. You can also use wasp traps to help identify and eliminate any existing nests before they become a bigger problem.
If you’ve tried all of the above and your wasps are not going away then reach out to Acorn’s pest control team for friendly advice, support, and effective pest removal.
Types of Wasps in the UK
There are over 7,000 species of wasps worldwide, but in the UK, there are around 9 commonly found species of social wasps. These include the common wasp, the German wasp, and the European paper wasp. Only female wasps have a stinger and they’ll only use it if they feel threatened or provoked.
Their level of danger varies depending on the species and the individual’s reaction to their venom. Some people may experience a mild reaction to a wasp sting, while others may have a more severe allergic reaction. The common and German wasps are the most aggressive and tend to be the most dangerous due to their tendency to sting repeatedly.
In the UK, wasps typically build their nests in sheltered areas, such as attics, sheds, and trees. The nests are made of a paper-like material made by the wasps chewing wood and plant material and mixing it with their saliva.
Social wasps, such as the common wasp and German wasp, build large nests that can contain thousands of individual wasps. These nests can become a nuisance and pose a danger to people, especially if they are disturbed.
The queen wasp is responsible for building the nest and laying eggs, and the worker wasps are responsible for caring for the young and defending the nest. As the weather gets colder in the autumn, the nest will die off, and the wasps will not survive the winter.
