Key points about wasps

  • Wasps do not use old nests:
    • If you have an old nest from a previous year, there is no need to treat it or remove it. Wasps build a new nest each year and never re-use old nests.
  • How to tell the difference between wasps, bees and hornets:
    • In spring, if many insects congregate together, they will most likely be bees. Large numbers could be wasps later in the summer, and closer inspection will be required.
    • Wasps are striped yellow and black and upon close inspection have minimal fluffyness.

    • Honey bees are striped in various shades of light and dark brown and slightly fluffy (moreso than wasps).

    • Solitary bees usually are present in the spring and autumn, and the most common are mason bees (fluffy and golden - mostly seen in springtime)

      and ivy bees (slightly fluffy striped yellow and brown - mostly seen in the autumn).

      Ivy bee identification
    • Bumblebees are very fluffy and black and are present from early spring to late summer.

      Bumblebee identification
    • Hornets are large (around an inch long) and rusty brown on their thorax and striped yellow and black on their abdomen.

  • When do wasps start building a nest?
    • A wasp nest starts in the spring with just a queen that has hibernated over winter. In early spring, March-April, there are only queen wasps and no workers.
  • Where and when to look for nests?
    • Mid to late June is the time to start looking for wasp nests. There are enough worker wasps present for you to notice the activity by this time. Look (from outside) at your roof. If you can see insects flying back and forth to the same spot on the roof, this is a sure sign that you have the start of a new nest. Pay particular attention to any areas which may have easy access, EG, around lead flashings where chimneys meet the roof. If you cannot see anything on the roof, start looking lower down. Tile hanging on the walls is a favourite location. But wasps will use any access points or voids.
  • Do wasps nest in the ground?
    • Wasps do nest in the ground; however, they take over an old mouse or rabbit burrow and typically only have one or two entry/exit holes. If you have lots of insects using lots of holes in the ground, this will be mining bees.
  • Do wasps nest in bushes?
    • German wasps (Vespula Germanica) will build nests in bushes and hedges. The nest, although very camouflaged, is exposed to the elements.
  • Lots of wasps just arrived from nowhere.
    • If you have a large number of wasp-like insects that arrive out of the blue, this will be a swarm of honey bees. You will need to contact your local beekeeping association to arrange for someone to collect them. Wasps do not swarm.

If you have a wasp or hornet problem and live in the Eastleigh area and need to get rid of the nest fast, why not give Paul a quick phone call?

We charge a set fee of £50.00 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 to while we are there. We charge another £15.00 per nest (obviously if treated on the day of the original call out).

If you have multiple nests on your property, please call us, and we can negotiate a fixed price to treat all your nests in one visit.

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 do not charge 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 contact us, and we will talk it over with you and advise.

While it is understandable that you may wish to try and treat the nest yourself, using proprietary products you might have purchased, we strongly advise against doing this!
We mention this because, in our experience, 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 morning or afternoon time slot.
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 children and pets to be kept indoors and windows/doors closed for several hours after treatment.

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.
