Nest Infestations: When to Seek Professional Pest Control for Removal

If an animal has chosen your attic, garage, or another inconvenient place to build their nest, contact Titan Pest & Wildlife.

Birds, squirrels, wasps, and rodents make nests for protection, reproduction, food storage, or a place to rear their young. We rarely notice them until one decides to build on our property.

Depending on the specific pest species involved, various nests may require removal by professional pest control services.

Nests that Require Professional Pest Control for Removal

Depending on the specific pest species involved, various types of nests may require removal by professional pest control services. Here are some common examples:

  • Wasp Nests: Wasps construct nests typically made of paper-like material, such as wood fibers mixed with saliva. Their nests can be found in trees, eaves, attics, or other protected areas. Wasp nests can be hazardous due to the aggressive nature of some species, and their removal is best left to professionals.
  • Hornet Nests: Hornets build large nests made of paper material, similar to wasps. These nests are often found in tree branches, shrubs, or even on the sides of buildings. Due to the potential danger of hornets, their nests should be handled by pest control experts.
  • Bee Hives: Bees create nests called hives, typically made of wax combs. Honeybees build their hives in hollow trees, walls, attics, or other sheltered locations. Removing bee hives requires specialized skills and equipment to ensure the safety of both the bees and the humans involved. It’s important to contact professional beekeepers or pest control services experienced in bee relocation or hive removal.
  • Bird Nests: Some species can create nests in undesirable locations, such as inside chimneys, vents, or building ledges. These nests can become a nuisance, make noise, and cause property damage due to the accumulation of droppings. Professional pest control experts can help remove bird nests safely and implement deterrent measures to prevent future nesting.
  • Squirrel Nests: Squirrels construct nests, called dreys, made of twigs, leaves, and other materials. These nests are usually built in trees, attics, or wall voids. Squirrels can cause significant damage to property and electrical wiring, making their nest removal a task best suited for professionals.
  • Rodent Nests: Rodents like mice and rats build nests using materials like fabric, paper, insulation, or other soft items they can find. These nests are often in concealed areas such as wall voids, attics, or basements. Due to rodents’ health risks and ability to reproduce rapidly, professional pest control is recommended for their nest removal.

It’s important to note that the specific type of nest and the regulations surrounding their removal can vary depending on the region. It’s best to consult with pest control professionals who are knowledgeable about the pests in your area and can provide appropriate and safe nest removal services.
