sue asked:

we just killed about 8 hornets in our loft, do we have a nest? We can't see one.

This question was asked on 2018-10-07

Paul Sweet replied: Hi Sue, the answer is you probably do have a nest. Although having said that, at this time of year, newly emerged queens from both wasp and hornet nests are looking for somewhere to hibernate. So it could be that happening.
Suggest you take a look from outside at each side of your roof. If you have a nest, you will see the wasps entering and leaving just one spot on your roof.

Carol asked:

I had a wasp nest in the wall void of my bedroom treated a week ago. Last night, I still heard some buzzing. I looked around the inside of the room and found nothing, so I figured it must be coming from the wall. From what I understand, the nest should have been dead after a few days. So, is it possible that a latecomer had just contacted the treatment one week later? Or is it some new pest that I should worry about?

This question was asked on 2017-09-20

Paul Sweet replied: Hi Carol, it is probably a wasp from another nest which has been raiding your dead nest out.
If there is no activity like before at the entrance, then the nest is dead.
I hope this helps.
Regards
Paul

karen asked:

Will a treated nest begin to smell after a while due to the accumulation of dead wasps or larvae?

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.

Note: We do not accept bank transfers.

We are not registered for Value Added Tax.

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.
