The charge to treat a wasp nest is £89+VAT. When there is more than one nest to be treated, the following nests are normally charged at a further £69+VAT.
Wasps activity at gutter level can either be treated from outside, or from within the roof space. The technician will normally choose the safest option.
Remove wasp nest in roof space or high up
Removing a nest in a roof space should only be done by a professional pest controller wearing the proper protective gear. Please do not try to remove one on your own, as you would be putting yourself in danger. In this context, ladder work is especially dangerous when being exposed to a swarm of wasps, as it can easily result in a fall.
Bee hive VS wasps nest
Bees are not aggressive insects and can often be left alone without any detrimental effect to the household. If the bee hive needs to be removed, it is best to enlist the help of a qualified professional to carry out the relocation.
Do not attempt to remove a bee nest without professional or local authorities advice.
Hornet nest removal
Hornet nests are typically recognised by seeing them coming in and coming out of a tiny hole in the fabric of the nest. If a hornet nest is close to windows, doors or children in general, it is highly recommended to treat it without delay. The same goes when you need to carry out some maintenance work in the roof space and workmen may be threatened by them.

Wasp control in London
Wasps in London mostly affect residential clients who cannot enjoy their home because of a nest being located in a critical area. A wasp nest removal team can either remove, destroy or treat the wasp nest.
When a wasp nest is found in the loft space hanging off a roof beam, it is often possible to make it fall straight into a plastic bag. We would seal the bag off, and take the nest safely out. In this scenario the results are very much instantaneous.
Alternatively, the pest control technician can destroy the nest using physical means as well as chemical means. In this case you also get instant results, but the remains of the nest stay there, most likely as broken up bits on the floor surface.
The most common type of wasp nest removal in London remains the treatment using a DR5 Duster. This sends highly pressurised insecticidal dust straight through the entry point of the nest. The dust reaches to the heart of the structure and as a consequences, the nest dies overnight.
Types of wasp in London
London wasps are typically of the specie Vespula Germanica or Vespula Vulgaris. It is a common wasp that is easily recognisable from its typical black and yellow bands.
Wasps are normally found nesting in the fabric of buildings: in air-vents, in masonry gaps, in roof spaces and whatever site a queen will have found suitable in London.
They are certainly not as friendly as the originally London-based rugby team of the same name! When wasps are flying about nearby, or feeding on shrubs, it is best to stay clear of them. If you stumble on the nest, do not attempt to remove it yourself, as you do do not have the right protective equipment.
And if could cannot avoid them, requesting a London wasp nest removal technician is by far the safest option.
How to deal with a wasp sting
Wasp stings will often result as an accident, as wasp activity in London tends to send residents into a panic that has harmful consequences.
In most cases, wasp stings are only painful. They cause a localised inflammation that will go down within an hour o two without the need of any medication.
But wasps can be a serious threat if they sting you where there is soft tissue, which is often more vulnerable than muscle. The worst case scenario is to get stung in the mouth or on the tongue. Being stung on the neck may also be as perilous.
Individuals that are sensitive to stings are especially at risk. In extreme cases, anaphylactic shock may put lives in danger.
The reality is that the protective gear is not 100% sting proof. But it is essential in allowing the team to concentrate on the job without falling victim to panic or stings that could otherwise lead to a ladder fall.Regardless of how sensitive you are to wasp stings, you should avoid attempting to remove them yourself and call a trusted London pest control provider for advice.
Concerns about wasps and pets
Wasps and pets do not always mix well, with dogs most likely to learn the lesson than wasps are not to be chased.The faces of dogs are the most vulnerable to wasps, although most dogs can handle a wasp sting without any fuss. Often applying vinegar on the sting area will alleviate the pain.
The main concern is when dogs try to bite or catch a wasp. Being stung in the mouth or tongue could trigger a swelling that would close its airway. The eyes are also very delicate and a sting could lead to loss of vision. If the wasp sting occurs under the fur, the pet will most likely be licking the affected area.
If you notice that your pet is suddenly lethargic, with breathing difficulties and possibly a large swelling extending away from the sting site, you must rush to a vet immediately.
