Wasps in the house or in the house wall
When you find wasps or other animals in your house or in the wall of the house, you wonder how to get rid of them. First of all, it is very important to find out where exactly the troublemakers built their nest and how they got there.
Wasps in the wall
Many facades and exterior walls are now built in double-shells. This means there is an inner wall and an outer wall. Between these 2 walls there is a cavity a few centimetres wide, which is filled with insulating material (such as mineral wool or styrofoam). As a rule, in addition to the insulation, there is also an air layer, which also has an insulating effect, but also ensures that any moisture that may have occurred due to an air circulation can be removed and thus a mold formation can be prevented.
In order for air circulation to take place, ventilation holes are necessary on the exterior facade. This is achieved with a clinker facade by the fact that some shock joints, e.g. on the floor and over windows and doors, are not grouted, but remain open.
This open shock jointsfor example, for wasps are the ideal entrance through which you can fly in a warm and safe nest. There, the wasps and hornets often also eat up the insulation, which can cause great damage, as mold formation is the result. In the freed cavity nests are then built, which they can only remove very difficult or not at all. The chamber hunter can no longer help you. He, too, does not get the wasp's nest removed. One can only drive the wasps out of their nest and the new nest-building can be left out.
Take advantage of the FUGITTE Joint grilleas a solution: The ventilation slots in the clinker bumper joints (the hole in the wall over which the wasp or hornet can fly into the nest) are closed to animals. However, air circulation is still possible! This makes FUGITTE the ideal shock joint fan.
If the entrance was found through which the wasps or bees entered the house or the house wall and you were able to fix the cause, then you will not have any animals in the house in the future. It is important that hole over which the bees fly in close. However, this does not make sense until the nest has been removed.
Means against wasps in the house
A wasp's nest in the facade is very difficult to remove. In any case, you should contact a local beekeeper or a chamber hunter. If in doubt, your municipality or your city can help you and make a contact.
Once the cause of the intrusion has been fixed, you should have peace of mind before the wasp in the future.
