We carry out wasp nest treatments in domestic and commercial premises. We do not remove the nest.

Experience tells us that nests are not sufficiently established to warrant treatment until early July. Then once the weather becomes colder, during autumn all the wasps will die except the new queens which will fly away to find hibernation sites. 

Old nests are not recognised the following year.

A new nest may be established next to an old one. It is not necessary to remove an old nest. Our treatment will consist of spraying an insecticide into the nest or entrance hole that the wasps are using which will kill the nest. You will be advised not to use the treatment area for at least a couple of hours following treatment.

We do not carry out treatment from ladders but have equipment that will reach up to gutter height on a traditional two storey house. 

If we are unable to carry out a treatment you will still be charged the visit charge of £25, therefore if you have concerns whether we can carry out this treatment then either provide a photo on the online form or discuss the position of the wasp nest  at the time of booking.

If you have any open water in your garden or in your neighbour’s garden, then this will need to be covered during the treatment process.

There is no need to kill every wasp you see. In the summer, they perform the useful task of killing hundreds of other insects that are themselves a problem in the home and garden. So, if wasps are tolerable, then the advice is to leave them alone.

Cost

Domestic premises, such as homes, are charged at £56 inc VAT for a wasp nest treatment. We also carry out wasp treatments at commercial premises at a charge of £49.17 + VAT. These charges are for one nest only, any additional nests will be charged at £13 inc VAT per nest.

Those who receive income support, pension credit, job seekers allowance (income based), housing benefit, council tax support or universal credit can apply for a 50% discount by confirming receipt of benefit at the time of booking.

We will generally carry out the wasp treatment during normal working hours, therefore evenings and weekend appointments are not available.

We do not carry out any pest control treatment for bees.

If you are not certain whether you have wasps or bees then you are advised to check before booking by visiting the link below as you will still be charges a visit charge of £25 if we visit and do not carry out a treatment.
