During the summer months, one of the most commonly encountered nuisance pests that householders find themselves having to face is Wasps and Hornets. Despite being surprisingly useful insects, the sheer numbers in a nest, coupled with the fact that they sting (which can be life-threatening), puts the Wasp at the top of the list for eradication.

Before calling, please take a quick look at the following video clips, they will help you identify your problem.
The first video is predominantly wasps, showing different nesting scenarios. Please watch and compare your problem to the ones in the clips.
The second video shows a selection of clips including honey bees and bumble bees.

We charge a set fee of £45.00 to treat a Wasp or Hornet nest regardless of its location.
There are no hidden extras for call outs, climbing ladders, working in lofts or unnecessary treatments.
We can treat any additional nests that you have found on your property if you want us too while we are there. For this, we charge another £10.00 per nest (obviously if treated on the day of the original call out).
As certificated and fully insured operatives, all our work is guaranteed.
Payment is required on completion of work.

Make sure you have identified the species of flying insect before calling us. If you are unsure, please text us a clear photo and we will be happy to help determine your problem or call us and we will talk it over with you and advise.
While it is understandable that you may wish to have a go and treat the nest yourself, using proprietary products which you might have purchased, we strongly advise against doing this!
We mention this because in our experience, for every success story this action can often end in a complete disaster.
However, if you do wish to embark upon this often hazardous endeavour, do not call us to sort out the frequently dangerous aftermath.
Please do not call us out for bees. We do NOT treat any bee species.
Note: if you book our services you will be given an approximate time slot of morning or afternoon.
We will do our utmost to be there as promised. Please make sure you are at home when we arrive.
For your safety: we advise for several hours after treatment, keep children and pets indoors and windows/doors closed.
If you have found a nest while out in your garden and it is a Saturday or Sunday, don't worry, give us a call and we will try to come out as soon as possible.

September - October - November.
It is the time of year when newly hatched queen wasps are emerging or about to emerge from the nest.
Queen wasps appear slightly plumper than worker wasps.
The last thing the nest does before it naturally dies off is to release new queens ready for the next season. Obviously, without these queens, the wasps would not be able to continue year after year.
Once these have left the nest, they never return to it and are no longer part of the nest.
If a nest treatment commences after these new queens have left, the insecticide will only kill the original workers still inhabiting the nest.
Freshly emerged queen wasps are now individual insects which are not linked to their birth nest and will not be killed by treating the nest from which they originated.
Typically, newly emerged queen wasps will leave the nest and find their way outside to mate with male wasps after which they find somewhere to hibernate. However, very often, many queens will walk away from the nest into the loft space or other cavities by mistake. Some of these may find their way inside the house.
As we move into the winter period, we advise customers that if wasps are not causing a direct problem, it is sometimes best to allow what remains of the colony to die off naturally.
Sweet feeding wasps
When queens start to emerge from the nest, the workers no longer have a food supply from the nest; this means they have to source food from elsewhere.
At this time of year, you may also see a large number of wasps feeding on bushes, trees (often on the ground below a tree) or other plants. This is NOT a nest, but wasps from several nests feeding on nectar-producing plants.
If you have wasps all over a particular tree (Willow, Lime trees or Ivy), you do not have a nest, in this case, nothing can be done.
