Our fee for a wasp nest treatment starts at £45.00. This fee can increase depending on travel distance and the location of the wasp nest (work height/difficult access)
We DO NOT charge VAT
Please refer to our service map on our contacts page or just below these FAQ’s to find out if you are within our service area.
“What happens if I have more than one wasps nest?”
We charge £20.00 for each additional wasps nest on site, when treated on the same day as our initial call out.
Can I just treat the wasp nest myself?
Unless you know what you’re doing, we strongly advise against treating wasp nests yourself. A large wasp nest in the height of the season can contain between 5,000 – 10,000 wasps! That’s a lot of potential stings if you happen to make a mistake. We would always recommend using a trained pest technician. We can use professional protective clothing and equipment and we can apply the latest professional insecticides for an effective and safe treatment.
“What areas do you cover?”
We’re based in central west Hampshire and cover the majority of Hampshire and some parts of Wiltshire, Berkshire and Surrey.
Still not sure? Take a look at our service area map of our operating area.
“How quickly can you get out to me?”
We aim to get to wasp call outs the same day, but if we are particularly busy it can be up to 48 hours.

High quality and very responsive service – really glad we got B.E in to come and sort our wasps nest out today as staff were really friendly and sympathetic. The wasps nest was outside our children’s bedroom window, so being provided with a level of reassurance to call with any concerns post treatment and clearly kitted for the job showed us the professionalism that is vital to getting a job done like this, properly first time. Will definitely use again.

Wasp nest info
Wasps don’t happen to have many fans, they’re known for being aggressive and to sting for no reason. Which isn’t all true. They do have their uses , they feed on aphids and green/black fly on plants in the garden, so they are kind of natures pest controllers, would be one way to put it.In the early stages of their life they focus on building their nest, which is made from wood and saliva. The wood usually comes from fence panels, sheds, wooden furniture and tree bark. It isn’t until later on in the season towards the end of the summer when the nest ends and the queen leaves to hibernate for the next year, that they can become irritating. The worker wasps are left to their own devices, they overfeed on fermented fruits that have fallen from fruit trees, which gives them the same effect as being drunk which is why they can become so aggressive.
If you have a wasp nest close to your property or on it, we would advise having the wasp nest treated. Unless you know what you’re doing never try and treat a wasp nest yourself! A small nest can have hundreds of wasps in, a large nest can have between five and ten thousand wasps, who aren’t going to be too pleased if you disturb them. Use a professional pest controller to exterminate your wasp nest, they have all the correct equipment and professional use insecticides. Not to mention they will know exactly what they are doing and have experience in dealing with wasps safely and effectively.
How to identify if you have a wasp nest
- Visual – wasps can build nests internally or externally in hedges, in the ground or within loft spaces or cavities. Check roof lines around gutters and window frames for signs of wasp activity.
- Noises – a faint scratching or light tapping sound can sometimes be heard above you in the ceiling or in the walls, this is the sound of wasps actually building their nest.

* We do not treat Honey Bee’s and we do our utmost to protect all species of Bee’s and Bumble Bee’s. If we are requested to treat a wasp nest and it turns out to be honey bee’s we may charge a travel fee.
We also carry out Bumble Bee treatments, but we only treat bees as a last resort and if they are in an area where they could potentially cause a health risk to the general public.
Bees pollinate a third of everything we eat and play a vital role in sustaining the planet’s ecosystems. These are just a few of the vital roles they provide for us, which is why we like to avoid treatments when at all possible.
Bumble bees tend to be a lot friendlier and calmer natured than wasps and vary rarely sting, most stings are caused when the bee is squashed accidentally under foot or when sat on. Honey bees are also not as aggressive as wasps but can become defensive if you get too close to a nest or if they are in a swarm and protecting the queen.
Bumble bee nests, if in an accessible position, can sometimes be moved to other sites away from houses and sensitive areas. Honey bee swarms can also be removed by beekeepers, but again, the swarm or nest needs to be in an accessible or open area.
