Wasps and bees
Problems with wasps?
If you're having a problem with wasps in your home or garden, we're here to help.
Our pest control service can offer you a professional and competitively priced treatment for wasps at both council and private properties.
What happens when you send someone out to treat wasps in my home?
If you have a problem with wasps, our pest control officers can come round to your home and spray the wasps nest.
However, we won’t spray nests until the beginning of July. The summer period is when the nest is more likely to have the queen in it.
If the queen is not in the nest when we spray it, there’s every chance that she’ll return and build a new nest near by, and possibly in a location that’s harder to reach.
For more information, please contact the pest control service.

Bee or wasp?
Honey bees are significantly different from bumble-bees. Whilst bumble-bees are large and furry, honey bees are a lot smaller and thinner and look very similar to wasps. Because of this, we do receive a large number of calls from customers who have mistaken bees for wasps.
Our pest control officers will not kill bees due to their value to the environment. If you do have a bee swarm, or a honey-bee nest, you may want to contact the British Bee Keepers Association. They can put you in contact with a local beekeeper/swarm collector.
