During spring there are no active wasp nests. We treat wasp nests from May to October.
Wolverhampton City Council provides a chargeable service for the treatment of wasps in domestic property and business premises.
Our Pest Control Officers treat the nest. During spring there are no active wasp nests, just queens which will begin to look for a suitable place to build their new nests.
You may see bees or hover flies which are easily mistaken as wasps but we do not treat hover flies and bees are not a pest.
How we will treat the problem
Our technicians will carry out a treatment to the inside of your property using a licensed professional product. The treatment costs £63 for a one-off treatment and free re-visit if required.
Treatment can take up to 5 days to take effect. Customers can call back for follow up treatment (if necessary) from the 6th day
How to tell the difference between wasps and bees
It is vital that you correctly identify that you have wasps and not bees before you make a booking for pest control services. We take payment at time of booking and will only provide a partial refund of £43 if we visit the property and you have a bee nest (£20 is retained to cover the call out expense).
The reason that we do not treat bees is because they are not a pest. Whilst they may be closely related to the wasp, bees are not aggressive and will not sting a human unless provoked, they are also one of the worlds most important pollinators. If it were not for bees one third of the food we eat worldwide would not be availible.
Wasps have an important role in our eco-systems as they naturally prey on pests; they are natures pest control. However, wasps are more aggressive than bees which is why we treat wasp nests.
