Wasp Treatment


Wasps are actually beneficial to the environment and so should only be treated if they are a nuisance 

Home treatments are possible but not recommended, especially if the nest is large or you are allergic. Wasp stings can send you into anaphylaxis. 

A professional pest control technician should be called out as they have the correct insecticide and equipment for spraying deep into the nests even when the nest is at height or in a hard to reach position.

Nests are not usually removed and only sprayed. A whole nest of wasps may take a day or two to die off after treating as foraging wasps return to the nest at the end of the day.


Wasps nests can then be removed a few weeks later once all the wasps have been been treated.

PGH Pest Prevention guarantees its wasp treatments for the season.

Why use us for wasp control?

  • Wasps can be fatal if the nest is aggravated.

  • Cause a fire risk -we have been to jobs where wasps have caught fire within downlighters (spot lights fitted in the ceiling/loft)

  • Multiply quickly, slowly becoming an issue later in the season.

  • Enter vulnerable areas in the property later in the season for light and warmth.

  • Live until Jan or February if the nest is large.

  • If left create queens that will hibernate in the roof until the following season.

  • Increase in the number of nests you will get year on year if not treated.

Insect Control & Prevention

In the UK there are over 20,000 orders of insects

It is vital for us to understand what insect you have. Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to know – we can diagnose some insect problems over the phone – however in most cases we would carry out a specialist consultation and survey to provide the following benefits:

  • We cover a massive range of insect control from fleas, bed bugs, clothes moths, carpet beetles, and woodworm.
  • With all insects, it’s important to find their nests and what they are living on. We will treat the insects using the correct method but also look to kill the eggs and larvae.
  • Many companies will just treat the areas quickly & cheaply, and do nothing to combat the eggs or source of infestation. It is impossible to control infestations without knowing why they are there in the first place!
