Environmental problems Pest control - identifying your pest

Wasps

Wasps can be a nuisance during warmer weather in the spring and summer months. They have a potent sting and can attack in large numbers if disturbed or threatened. If stung the sting left in situ is irritating and in some cases will cause medical issues.

If you are experiencing high numbers of wasps in your home or garden it is likely that there is a nest nearby. If the location of a nest is likely to put people at risk, then it should be treated immediately by a professional pest controller.

How we will deal with wasps

Due to the high risks involved with wasps nests and the risk of anaphylactic shock only professionally qualified technician should undertake any treatments. The treatment costs £55

We will spray or dust the nest with an insecticide which will poison the whole inside of the nest and contaminate it for any returning wasps. Control is usually achieved within a few hours.

We are certified members of the British Pest Control Association
