Questions answered about wasps - Page:19
We work evenings and weekends. We do not like treating nests early in the mornings for several reasons.
We prefer to have wasps active and flying so we can see where they are entering.
Wasps can chew through a variety of materials including plasterboard.
We have seen damage to phone lines; they can chew through thin plastics.
If a queen wasp cannot leave an attic after hibernation, she will either starve and die or find her way inside the house.
Each year many queen wasps make mistakes and get inside the house instead of outside.
Worker wasps that become trapped indoors also run out of energy and starve quickly.
After a nest treatment, the nest tends to stay put and can last for many years (if protected from the elements) before eventually disintegrating and falling off. However, wasps will never use a nest repeatedly, so once all the wasps are dead, the nest is no longer a threat.
After treatment, you will have dead wasps underneath the nest or the entrance to the nest. Once the nest is dead, we suggest you sweep the area and make sure people wear shoes in that area for a time after treatment.
If we are called out for bees which we clearly state that we DO NOT treat, there will be a fee to cover our time and fuel costs.
We charge £45.00 to treat any wasp nest with no further charges on top. £45.00 is the total charge.
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.
