> How do I get rid of a nest?

GoKill Manchester Pest Control strongly warns you to not attempt to treat or remove an activate nest yourself. If wasps, bees, or hornets are alive and disturbed, they can feel threatened and become aggressive instantaneously in an effort to defend their nest and young, with potential for hundreds of them to be swarming around at once within seconds. Therefore, we highly recommend you contact our services and leave it to the professionals. There is no counter-bought chemicals strong enough to kill a nest and an infestation, you do require professional chemicals. To successfully treat a nest you do not have to remove the nest itself, our professional fumigators can treat the nest and nesting wasps with specific chemical and procedures.

If you find any wasps, bees or hornets coming in and out of any hole, cracks or gaps within your property or within any out buildings and believe there is a nest in the cavities, please do not ever attempt to cover or fill these crevices as this will only trap the infestation thinking that this will kill the nest off itself. This will definitely not work and only has greater potential to cause more problems when trying to treat and eradicate them.

GoKill Manchester Pest Controls highly, qualified fumigators are trained to locate the nests for you, as they are often found in a one or more locations. From there, our fumigators will talk you through the whole process and will exterminate as required. Please do read further on the steps required before and after a fumigation treatment.

> How do I know if I have a wasp, bee or hornets’ nest?

GoKill Manchester Pest Control advises you that if you are seeing a large volume of wasps, bees or hornets swarming around within your property or garden, it is highly likely you have a nest nearby. However, if you are not visibly seeing many wasps or bees swarming around but you can hear them or believe there is a nest present somewhere.

We advise you to carefully and cautiously look for any holes, crack, gaps or cervices within the structure of your property or out buildings and see if there is any activity. If any activity is present, there is likely to be a nest within the cavity. In addition, if they are present and entering or leaving the property or garden from more than one place, there is most probably more than one nest. Our highly, trained, professional fumigators will have a look around the property and advise you further on the day.

> How do I get rid of a nest if it’s dormant?

GoKill Manchester Pest Control advises you to contact us and arrange a visit for our professional fumigators to come and remove the nest for you and dispose of it professional. Please do not attempt to do this yourself, as there is a possibility the nest can still be active. This is extremely dangerous as the live insects can become aggressive instantaneously and sting you.

> Do you provide a removal service for dormant nests?

Yes. GoKill Manchester Pest Control offers a complete nest control service. We guarantee to treat any nest up to twice and once dormant remove it at an additional rate. Please allow up to two weeks for one treatment or three weeks for two treatment before arranging for a visit for us to come and remove the dormant nest. We recommend these periods to ensure the nest is dormant. However, if you have found an old or dormant nest which we have not treated for you, we do also provide this removal service. Please contact GoKill Manchester Pest Control services to arrange a visit for our professional fumigators to come out and remove it at an agreed rate.

  • Trees.
  • Inside lofts.
  • Edges of roofs.
  • Inside any out buildings, i.e, sheds or garages.
  • Under leaves.
  • Inside bird boxes.
  • Inside furniture, i.e, wardrobes.
  • Corners of ceilings in quiet rooms.
  • Inside cavity walls within the property.

GoKill Manchester Pest Control recommends that you do not attempt to go close to the nest and always remain at a safe distance. Please do not attempt to treat or remove the nest yourself. If you find any wasps, bees or hornets coming in and out of any hole, cracks or gaps within your property or within any out buildings, please do not ever attempt to cover or fill these crevices as this will only trap the infestation and has great potential to cause more problems when trying to treat and eradicate them. Please contact GoKill Manchester Pest Control to arrange a visit with our professional fumigators.

> What should I do prior to a nest fumigation treatment?

GoKill Manchester Pest Control advises you if possible to ensure no babies, young children or animals are present if a nest is being treated inside a property. For any nest being treated outside the property please ensure no one is within the garden and please inform your adjoining neighbours that you are having a nest treated and at what day and time. This is due to wasps, bees and hornets ability to swarm aggressively after the treatment and we propose these recommendations to eliminate the possibility of any human or animal being stung.

Please ask your adjoining neighbours if they have noticed any signs of a wasps, bees or hornets’ nest as more often than not there is two within a close location. If one nest is treated but there is another live nest close by, there is potential for the live wasps, bees and hornets from the nest close by to swarm into the treated nest and keep it alive. GoKill Manchester Pest Control offers a discounted service for two or more nests within a close proximity.

GoKill Manchester Pest Control recommends you look around your property safely, to see if any wasps, bees or hornets are entering and exiting any specific places or using the same access points. If this is detected please do inform our fumigator prior to any treatment being completed. Again, please do not ever attempt to cover or fill these crevices as this will only trap the infestation. This will definitely not work and only has greater potential to cause more problems when trying to treat and eradicate them.

> Should I inform my neighbours?

Yes. GoKill Manchester Pest Control advises you inform your adjoining neighbours. This is due to wasps, bees and hornets ability to swarm aggressively after the treatment and we propose these recommendations to eliminate the possibility of any human or animal being stung. Especially in peak season many of your neighbours will plans to spend time in their garden, therefore, a courtesy reminder with help for everyone’s safety.

Please also ask your adjoining neighbours if they have noticed any signs of a wasps, bees or hornets’ nest as more often than not there is two within a close location. If one nest is treated but there is another live nest close by, there is potential for the live wasps, bees and hornets from the nest close by to swarm into the treated nest and keep it alive. GoKill Manchester Pest Control offers a discounted service for two or more nests within a close proximity.

In the peak of summer if left untreated, they can last as long as 3-4 months; or potentially all summer if their nest has not been attached or if the queen does not move.

> Can you leave a nest to die on its own?

GoKill Manchester Pest Control strongly recommends that you do not leave any nest with high activity. At peak seasons with lots of availability to food, this can increase the growth of a nest and only make your problem worse if left for any period of time. Please do consider who is around the infestation and their potential to be stung. We highly advise to get any nest treated as soon as it is noticed, to eliminate the problem straight away.

> Can I drown a nest?

GoKill Manchester Pest Control highly recommends that you do not attempt to drown a nest with boiling water or a hose. We advise you that this is not a safe way to kill off any wasps, bees, hornets or their nests that are being a nuisance. There is huge potential for them to attack and sting.

Why do wasps, bees and hornets attack?

> Why do wasps, bees and hornets attack?

If wasps are disturbed and provoked they have a tendency to become aggressive and territorial, and will use their stinger to defend themselves and attack. They can use their stinger several times and have they ability to attack as a group. GoKill fumigators are highly trained to fumigate nests in a manner in which is least disruptive. Therefore, we highly recommend that anyone untrained does not go near a wasp and attempt to treat the nest themselves. Yourself and any animals have the potential to be stung hundreds of times and this can be extremely dangerous and fatale. In any case, anyone has the potential to have a reaction to a sting and this will be painful; in extreme cases medical treatment could be required and you could go into anaphylactic shock.

> Prevention from wasps, bees and hornets?

  • Food is a key motivator, therefore, it’s essential to eliminate any unwanted food.
  • Within your property, look around your home structure and conceal any holes, cracks or crevices. Please ensure this is done prior to any potential wasp, bee or hornet forming a nest within these cavities.

> What attracts wasps, bees and hornets to your property?

  • Their aim is for protection, safety and a warm haven.
  • Food – smells from cooking within your home or any food outside. Whether you’re eating outside, have bins outside or any garbage lying around.
  • If there is a wasp nest nearby, there is greater potential for them to create another nest.
