Pest Control for Wasps, Bees & Hornets

Wasps and Bees are generally the most common and disliked of all the insects and a wasp and bees nest can be a nuisance and problem to any residential or commercial premises. In some instances, a wasp or bee sting can be extremely harmful to individuals who suffer allergic reactions to them and it can lead to hospitalisation or occasionally even death.

Wasp and Bee Nests are usually found in roof spaces, in wall cavities, in eaves of buildings, hanging from trees as well as underground. Possible signs of a wasp, hornet or bees nest:

• Buzzing or humming sounds
• Regular wasps, hornets and bee activity at a specific location
