Most calls are dealt with the same day and appointments can be arranged for specific times if required. The treatment of wasps nests is relatively simple, and usually costs just £50 +vat. Additional nests treated at the same time are half price or less, depending on the accessibility.
Payment is required in full at the start of treatment.
Weekend and evening visits can be arranged, often without additional cost.
Wasps and Hornets build nests in the late June, starting with a single queen, who rears her first broods over a few weeks. Once the numbers begin to climb, the workers take over her duties, such as nest building and hunting, and she concentrates on rearing young. Wasp nest numbers reach a peak of several thousand in late August, whereas Hornet numbers only reach two – three hundred.

Treating a wasp nest is usually a straight forward operation. Wasps nests at height can add a degree of difficulty, but most can be accessed from steps or ladders. Occasionally access into a loft may be required, but 98 percent of wasp nests are treated from outside. Once a nest has been treated it normally takes two hours to calm down, and it should be completely quiet the next day. The nest itself will never be re-used again, and as a result it does not need to be removed.
Once the nest is treated it is important to stay away from the nest site, as the wasps will be confused and more likely to sting.
Children and pets should be kept away from active wasp nests at all times.
Commercial Premises – inside and outside
Wasps can also be controlled outside in gardens, around picnic areas and other open spaces where nuisance wasps cause alarm. This involves the use of wasp traps.
When sited correctly wasp traps offer fantastic results. The key is to site them away from the vulnerable areas, and then occasionally top them up with attractant for the required period.

Wasps around hedges and trees.
Wasps nests have a distinctive nest entry point where all the wasps fly into and out of an area, such as under a roof tile or in an air brick etc. Wasps will nest in bushes and hedges, but there is normally an obvious entry point or a visible nest.
Wasps that can be seen all over a bush, hedge or tree are more likely just visiting that vegetation to comb microscopic liquid particles from the leaf surface. Unfortunately not much can be done to prevent wasps from just visiting vegetation unless you can cover the bush with a fleece or alternatively remove the bush or tree.
Call out fees will apply if we come and visit just to inspect and advise on wasp activity.
