Wasp Nest Treatment – Costs
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 £50.00 +VAT. Additional nests treated at the same time are £10 to £20, depending on the accessibility.
Payment is required on the day, but can be paid in advance by credit card.
Weekend & evening visits can be arranged, often without additional cost.
All nests treated are fully guaranteed.
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.
Same day Service
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.
Wasp traps are not suitable for the control wasps where a wasp nest is in a known location. The wasp traps are fantastic at reducing foraging wasp numbers but they will not eliminate a nest.
Nuisance wasps in the garden
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.
DIY Wasp Traps
Wasp traps are relatively inexpensive and will reduce the problem of wasps buzzing around your food and drink, preventing you enjoying your garden.

Wasps around Hedges and Bushes
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 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.
Wasps will nest in bushes and hedges, but there is normally an obvious entry point or a visible nest.
