1 We only treat wasps' nests from the outside of the property. The homeowner does not need to be in when we treat the nest as long as we have access to all the outside areas, for example the back gate is left unlocked. (If access is required - see Appointments).

2 No treatment will be offered if the area is not prepared as instructed, however payment may still be taken.

Further information

There are some jobs, which may be too large or specialised for our officers to deal with. If this is the case, it is the responsibility of the property owner to arrange a private pest control company to deal with the problem.

Please note some nests can be difficult to reach and we may not be able to treat these.
