Leigh and Atherton Wasp Nest Removal
Wasp Nests Removal £65.00
Wasp Nests, Hornet Nests, Bee Problems
Leigh and Atherton Wasp Nest Control are a regional Pest Control team extending their services across the Leigh and Atherton area. If you have a problem wasp nest, hornets or bee issues we can deal with the problem for you, rapidly, discreetly and at a rate which is not going to break your budget.
We cover Leigh, Atherton, Tyldesley, Astley, Lowton, Glazebury and Culcheth.
In Leigh and Atherton we have a set rate for
dealing with wasp nests of just £65.00 and that includes work done in the evenings or at weekends. We also work Bank Holidays at no additional charge.
We charge £65.00 to deal with wasps and £75.00 to deal with bees as they are rather more complicated.
Safety At Heights
Our operatives do not carry ladders and are not allowed to use ladders other than short step-ladders. We use telescopic extension lances which gives us a reach of around 10 meters (33 feet) which is more than adequate for most domestic properties.
If the entrance to the nest is above gutter height and not visible from the ground please inform us when you phone. For nests high on rooftops, in roof valleys etc it may be necessary to send a two man climbing team at increased cost. This satisfies our obligations under Working at Heights regulations and is safer for you and our operatives.
Seasonal Update Today is Sunday, May, 28th 2023.
We operate 7 days per week during the Wasps & bees season, roughly April until October
Tree Bumblebees – A Newcomer
In the Leigh and Atherton area we now have got a new and rather aggressive
bumble bee, the Tree Bumblebee (Bombus hypnorum). Though we try not to hurt bees, this species is unsafe when nesting low down in a garden or on the body of your building.
We do not generally like to kill bees but this bee is risky when nesting in the proximity of people, especially children and pets.
Its characteristic markings, black body, the orange thorax and white tail, make it simple to spot and we advocate calling a pest controller immediately you think you may possibly have a nest. In the interim keep away as this bee can and will sting.
If you are uncertain on about identification then please check out our Wasps and bees site.
If you are calling regarding a wasps’ nest in the Leigh and Atherton area between April – July please visit our Seasonal Chart Page to ensure that you actually do have a wasps’ nest, not harmless solitary bees. This may save you a callout charge.
We are lovers of bees and wildlife on the whole and in the year 2013 in an effort to try and assist honeybees we started to be beekeepers ourselves and are now often able to supply small amounts of local honey to our customers. Take a look at our Harrier Honey page for entire details.
A detailed list of the most common pests we deal with may be found by following the navigation at the top and right side of this webpage. Please do not hesitate to give us a ring to talk over your problem.

Most common pests
Our cost for the treatment of wasp nests is set at £65.00 and we will never ask you for extra unless access equipment such as scaffolding or a cherry-picker is necessary to reach the nest. Please note that doing work at height legislation is very exacting these days so please tell us if the nest is any taller than the gutters of a standard domestic house.
However, once we get much beyond mid-September we are working with what we call a late season wasp nest, and this may call for added work to make things safe for you. Please click the link for extensive details.
We try and destroy wasp nests from the outside of the building whenever practicable and we prefer to use extension lances rather than ladders, it’s much safer for everyone involved.
Also, and more importantly DO NOT attempt to close or block the nest entrance with mastic or mortar etc., you’ll drive the Wasps into the house and when we arrive we need the entrance to be open so as to perform the treatment.
If you call us out to a nest where you have sealed the entrance we will charge you extra for the additional time it takes us to deal with the nest.
On occasions when an entrance has been sealed or where you have attempted to deal with the nest yourself we reserve the right to charge you a call out fee without carrying out the treatment or to attempt the work with no guarantee given.
What we do
You will be provided with the first possible appointment, commonly same-day and our technician will destroy the wasp nest by injecting a tiny amount of insecticide into the hole where the wasps are coming and going. The wasps will transport this wasp killer powder into the nest on their bodies and the entire thing will be inactive inside of the hour.
As long as we can access the wasps’ nest from the exterior of the building you do not even have to wait in.
If we can get to the nest without going through the house we can take a card payment over the phone and deal with the nest without you having to wait in. Please be sure to leave unlocked any gates we may need to go through.
If you know of any difficulties which you are aware of that might have an impact on the process such as the existence of bats then please inform us of that on the phone.
People who have an ant infestation on the inside of their properties will recognize just how horrific it can be, particularly when the flying ants emerge.
However, we are currently a lot better equipped to contend with ants than we were even a couple of years ago. We can now with assurance offer a one year warranty on ant work in most instances.
The process is perfectly safe for small children and your pets.
Don’t spend money on ant dusts and ant gels when we can remedy your indoor ant infestation at a reasonable price and offer you a one year warranty in the bargain.
Cat Fleas and Dog Fleas are getting to be more troublesome in the Leigh and Atherton Pest Control region and we are getting more and more telephone calls from people who continuously treat their cats and dogs and yet are still suffering from flea infestations in their houses.
This appears to be simply because populations of cat fleas and dog fleas in the Leigh and Atherton Pest Control region of operation are becoming resistant to the active ingredients in the flea control products and solutions readily available to the public.
We are finding that dog fleas and cat fleas are extremely bothersome in places with town foxes.
It is vital to address a flea infestation rapidly, particularly in the presence of toddlers as fleas are intermediate hosts of tapeworm.
