I have never seen the creatures to respawn again, once they were killed in standard combat.

    An OCD-like compulsion to clear every single icon on the map isn't enough?

  • I don't suffer such condition :-) I mean, those bombs could be put to some real use right?!

  • @Martin Not really a concern since you can meditate for an hour or more and the bombs replenish if you have a strong alcohol. Also, strong alcohol is plentiful in the game

In addition to repopulation in a very few areas (as mentioned by Aegis), you also get experience points and looting them yields materials. The bombs regenerate when you meditate, so for me it's an easy choice.

  • Tested tonight, small amount of experience (I've got 30 points) and you get to loot the destroyed nest.

  • There's definitely good stuff in the nests. Make sure to check each one after you destroy it. Jul 17, 2015 at 3:17

Some areas where the ghoul nests are will become repopulated with people again once the nests are cleared out. You'll know this because a cutscene will trigger with people returning to that area.

  • Does this really happen after destroying the nests? Because I already cleared two such areas in Prologue, but it only involved killing the beasts. Not destroying their nests (as far as I can recall).

  • @Martin My observation matches yours.

  • There was a little village off the coast of a part of Velen I found that was overrun with Ghouls and had a Ghoul nest too. After I cleared the village of them and destroyed the nest the cutscene triggered and people returned to the village.

    I believe this only comes into play where the nest is by an abandoned location (not common at all). Jul 16, 2015 at 14:30

If you're in it for achievements, there's one linked to destroying all the monster nests in a region.
