Prices and Coverage Areas
£30.00 --- Wasp and Bumble Bee nest treatment for nests at ground level and in wall cavities up to a height of 3 metres.
£40.00 --- Wasp and Bumble Bee nest treatment for nests in loft/attic spaces, under roof tiles or above 3 metres. (Nests in chimneys will most probably incur extra costs depending on whether or not the nest can be treated with telescopic application equipment, or if hired access equipment is required)
£25.00 --- Wasp and Bumble Bee nest removal after a successful nest treatment, and/or sealing of the entrance holes after a successful nest treatment. (This is an extra cost in addition to a treatment and is done at a second visit)
£40.00 --- Loft/attic space fumigation for late season Queen Wasps. (For one fumigator, extra fumigators @ £15.00 each. Large loft spaces will require two fumigators. Some situations may require a conventional nest treatment as well if the nest is still active at a discounted price of £55.00 for both nest treatment and one fumigator)
£40.00 --- Bumble Bee colony re-homing, where possible and subject to available new nest locations. (There are limitations as to what is actually possible when it comes to collecting a bumble bee colony)
Honey Bee nest treatments can be very complex, especially if the colony is well established and situated in a wall cavity or disused chimney. Prices for a straight forward Honey Bee nest treatment and sealing of the nest nest entrance afterwards start at £75.00. A chimney treatment and sealing of the entrance will incur additional costs for access equipment. The minimum would be cat ladders for a bungalow and full scaffolding for a two storey property.
If you want the honey combs to be removed from a cavity or chimney after a successful nest treatment, then many other trades people will be required eg, scaffolders, brickies,joiners etc. The total cost can work out very expensive.
The prices above are for all areas within an approximate 20 miles travelling radius of Preston town centre, post code PR1.
This means virtually all parts of Preston PR and Fylde FY post code areas are covered.
Also covered are parts of post code areas:
Wasp nests and bee colonies requiring treatment out side of 20 miles will incur a travel fuel surcharge of .25p per mile.
Any additional nests found and treated at the same time are charged at £10.00 each. I have done properties with up to 4 wasp nests and some I've done have had both wasp and bumble bee nests.
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/bees to the actual nest. If the insects decide to stop using the route/s 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 and where you think the nest might be.
