From Gladys We’s grad student:
FREE wasp, hornet, yellowjacket nest removal
Help science, and get rid of your wasps! We collect wasp nests from the greater Vancouver area for behavioural research at Simon Fraser University. We take nests for free, provided they are alive, never sprayed with pesticide, safely reachable by ladder (if necessary), and the correct species.If possible, please contact us through email, and attach pictures of the nest or nest entrance (cell phone pics will do) to help us plan what will we need for removal, and to determine if it is the correct species.
Most nests are removed within 1-3 days, but during peak wasp season, we may need one week or more.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call the lab at 778-782-5939 and ask for Nathan.
