Canberra is perhaps the wasp capital of Australia, not only for the native paper wasp, but the dangerous European wasp. Residential Reports can destroy and remove wasps nests, keeping your family and pets safe.
Our general pest control spray will prevent wasps building their nests on the outside of buildings, by spraying the outside walls (particularly under the eaves).
Wasp nest elimination and removal
If you have an established wasp nest, we will need to carry out a wasp nest elimination treatment. The exact type of treatment will depend on the species (paper wasp or European wasp) location of the nest and the size of the nest. In most cases we will carry out the treatment in the evening when the wasps are back in the nest and generally less active.
We will knock down paperwasp nests after treatment. For European wasps we will revisit the day after treatment to make sure the nest has been destroyed. We will then remove accessible nest, but for nests in the ground, we would simply recommend filling the entrance hole with soil.

European wasps can be very aggressive and with their nests reaching up to 100,000 individuals, they can be a serious safety concern. As their nests are often built underground there is no way of knowing how big the nest is, which is why wasp control is best tackled by a professional.
Paper wasps produce a lot smaller nests and are less aggressive, but nevertheless they can deliver a painful sting and nests should be removed before they get too large.
