Wasp and Bee Nest Treatment Prices

Please Note. There is a Call Out Charge of £20.00 payable when I'm called out for what turns out to be non target species or there is no wasp nest to treat. Sorry about this, but this is very wasteful of my time.


Wasp Nest Treatment Costs

Prices vary from £40.00 to £50.00, depending on how easy the nest is to access and treat.

Ground nests are the easiest to deal with and will usually incur the lower price. Whilst more difficult nests under roof tiles/slates, in loft spaces, behind facias, soffit boxes or gutters will incur the higher charge.

Some times a job turns out to be easier than expected once I've arrived and seen the exact nest location and dismissed any likely problems that I thought I might encounter. A lower price may be offered in these circumstances.

I will always tell you the exact price of the treatment before any work commences.

Nests in extra tall or 3 storey buildings, chimneys and nests with poor access can incur extra costs depending on whether or not the nest can be treated successfully with standard telescopic application equipment and/or ladders.

Bee Nest Treatment Costs

I do not treat any Bumble Bee nests without a genuine reason being put forward for their destruction. We need our Bees.

Where it is not possible to re-home Bumble Bee colonies and a justifiable reason for killing them is given, prices are as follows;

Bumble Bee Nests from £60.00

No treatment is offered for Solitary Bees.


Any previous DIY attempts that have failed in treating a nest may result in additional charges if the correct treatment process now takes longer to carry out, or is likely to require a follow up treatment as a direct result of the failed DIY treatment.

Typical DIY failures examples include:

  • Blocking up of original entrance points to a hidden nest.

  • Using "Amateur Use" insecticide products designed for use on a visible nest, on a hidden nest. 

Prices for other Wasp and Tree Bumble Bee Services


£35.00 --- Removal of old and previously treated wasp nests. (subject to access)

£45.00 --- Re-Homing of a Tree Bumble Bee colony, where possible and subject to availability of new nest locations. (There are limitations as to what is actually possible when it comes to collecting a Tree Bumble Bee nest)


The prices above are for all areas within an approximate 20 miles travelling radius of Preston.

Wasp nests requiring treatment further than 20 miles will incur a travel surcharge of £1.00 per mile for mileage incurred over and above 20 miles. For example: you live 30 miles from PR1, you will have an additional charge of £20.00. That is another 10 miles out and 10 miles back @ £1.00 per mile. Total 20 miles @ £1.00 = £20.00.


Any additional nests found and treated at the same time are charged at £10.00 each.

It is quite common to come across properties with two or more active nests.

Please ensure that payment can be made at the time of the nest treatment or removal.


A re-treatment (Call Back) for a nest that is still active a few days after the initial treatment is Free. This can happen occasionally where the nest cannot be seen and there may be many entrance holes and flight lines being used by the wasps to the actual nest. If the insects decide to stop using the routes I have treated then no insecticide will be carried back into the nest.

I do not offer any services for Cluster Flies, Hover Flies or any of the Solitary Bees.   Many people confuse these insects with wasps, honey or bumble bees


If you are unsure what species you have, please try to give me as much information as regards colour, size, numbers seen and where you think the nest might be.

I'm on WhatsApp, so you can also send a photo but please ensure it's in good focus.
