All of our work is guaranteed.
We treat your wasp or hornet nest. You pay us ONCE.
If the nest is still alive the following day, call us, and we will return without question and also without asking for a further fee, and we will correct the issue.
Usually, the first thing you will notice if you have a hornet's nest is insects tapping on the windows at night.
Hornets are nocturnal and fly at night as well as during the day.
They are attracted to lights indoors just like moths are.
Hornets look like huge wasps, but they also have a rusty brown colour to them.
On average, worker hornets are about an inch and quarter long; queen hornets are slightly larger.
Both bumble bees, honey bees and wasps will all use compost heaps and bins for nest sites.
If you have one of the above, check out our page on identification to see what you have.
We also have videos on our homepage to help you identify bees and wasps.
Both wasps and hornets like bees can only feed on liquid food. They can feed on nectar from plants and flowers. But most of the food they receive is provided by the young wasp larvae in the nest.
Adults feed insect prey to the larvae which in turn regurgitate part of the insect (chitin) as a high-quality sugary liquid which the adults consume.
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.
