Not all wasps are considered pests – in fact there are tens of thousands of known species of wasps. And, whilst there are some which pollinate and prey on other insect pests, social wasps (such as yellow jackets and hornets), simply hang in hostile groups with a menacing sting in their tails.
So before you go into battle, it is important that you know which wasp you are fighting with. At Malum we can identify the type of wasp that is attacking your property and use the appropriate methods in order to get rid of them.
It is never wise to attempt to treat or remove a wasps nest yourself, as they can contain up to 7,000 wasps, if not more! Instead give Malum Southern Pest and Bird Control a call and let us deal with the problem on your behalf.
How do you know if I have a wasp nest?
Have you noticed more wasps then usual flying around your property? Are you flailing your arms more than usual in an attempt to flap them away? Perhaps you are getting ‘unexplained’ wasps flying inside your house – especially at night?
All of these are indicators that a wasps nest may be lurking nearby.
Some species of wasps will build their nests outside in bushes and trees and these paper like structures may be easy to spot. Grey or brown in colour, they are usually constructed in sheltered areas such as wall cavities, under roofs and eaves and even in bird boxes, sheds, summer houses and garages.

What happens if you leave a wasp nest?
If you leave a wasps nest for long enough then it will eventually die out – but probably not until you have experienced a few sharp stings. Also, one nest can produce up to 100 fertile queens, which will only go on to hibernate, ready to plague you the following year.
Therefore, it is better to call in a professional pest control company, such as Malum Pest Control to apply a residual insecticidal dust. After treatment, it is important that the nest is not removed for at least 48 hours (if not longer). By removing a nest too soon could cause the worker wasps to return and attempt to re-build it, causing further problems down the line.
A wasps nest can never be re used, so can be left in its original place once treated providing that it is not fixed to a wooden structure or ceiling as they can stain and have ability to corrode certain materials. At Malum, we will advise you of the best solution and can remove the treated wasps nest if necessary.
What’s the difference between a wasp and a hornet?
A wasp and a hornet are both flying insects, but there are some key differences. Hornets are typically larger and have more potent venom than wasps. Additionally, hornets build larger nests and are generally more aggressive. However, both can sting and should be approached with caution.

Do you offer bee pest control?
It’s important to note that bees will only be treated as a last resort, as they are typically protected and alternative solutions are explored.
