Bees, Wasps & Hornet Control

Getting rid of bees, wasps or hornets is a dangerous task. Stings are painful and could even prove fatal for those nearby.

Our local teams are trained to deal with problems from bees, wasps and hornets, quickly, safely and efficiently.

Wasps, hornets and bees only sting in self-defence when either their nest or queen is under threat. So, if you find a nest, avoid disturbing the area. Wasps, bees and hornets can attack in large numbers if disturbed. That’s why getting professional help is crucial.

If you need bee, wasp or hornet control we can help. There’s no call out charge and we can apply our treatment and eradicate the problem. Call us for a no-obligation quote or to book an appointment with our bee, wasp and hornet specialists.

We’re also here if you need us in an emergency, with engineers on hand 24/7* if you need specialist help urgently.


If you want some advice, our expert advisors are on hand 24/7* to help. They can talk through your problem and give you a free, no-obligation, estimate based on your specific situation. Or take a look at our frequently asked questions below and see how our professionals can help you.

Do you offer a guarantee?
Xpress Pest Control pest control offers a guarantee that will vary in length depending on the nature of the pest problem and the treatment being used. In some cases we are unable to offer a guarantee, for example treating during sub-optimal weather conditions, but the technician will talk you through this so you are aware before any work starts.
What should I do if I discover a nest inside my house?
If you find a nest inside your house, it's essential not to disturb it. Close off the area and avoid approaching the nest to prevent the risk of stinging. Contact us immediately and we can assess the situation.
Why should I remove a wasp, bee, or hornet problem?
Treatment is essential for safety reasons. Stinging insects can be aggressive when their nests are disturbed and pose a threat to people, especially those allergic to their stings. Leaving a swarm near your home could lead to potential stings and an increased risk of injury.
How do professionals treat a nest?
Our professional stinging insect treatment typically involves protective gear, using appropriate techniques to neutralise the nest's inhabitants. Our professionals are trained to handle stinging insects safely and effectively.
How much does professional treatment cost?
The cost of our professional treatment varies depending on factors such as the type of stinging insect, the nest's location and size, and the accessibility of the nest. Xpress Pest Control offers free no-obligation quotes and estimates. We don’t charge for call outs and there are no hidden costs.
How long will it take to complete the treatment?
The time of treatment varies depending on factors such as size and location. However, for some works we charge our labour rates per half hour. That way, if a job takes 20 minutes, you are not charged a full hour for the job. Some works may also be charged at a fixed price. Therefore, you are only charged one price even if the job runs over the estimated time to fix.

Bee Treatment

If you see a lot of bees around your roof soffits or cavity walls, you might have a nest. Bees only sting in self-defence so it’s really not advised to carry out bee removal yourself. If you are nearby, the bees could see you as a threat to the nest and attack.

In serious cases stings can cause an allergic reaction that’s life threatening. Instead call the professionals.

Wasp Treatment

Often confused with honey bees or hornets, wasps are notorious for nesting in places where people are, such as eaves of your home, attics and lofts and are often unnoticed until the queen emerges in spring, and the warmer weather.

Wasp removal is usually dangerous and should be done by professionals to prevent them from returning.

Hornet Treatment

Hornets are larger than wasps, and although generally less aggressive if undisturbed, their stings are extremely painful. While hornets often choose to nest in hollow tree trunks, you can find them in places such as wall cavities and air bricks. Hornets attack if they feel their nest is being threatened.

If you think you have a nest in a closed space, call in our professional hornet removal services.

Nest Removal

If you find a nest it’s never a good idea to remove it yourself. Blocking a nest will only make the situation much worse as returning insects that can’t get inside will become agitated and become more likely to sting. If they are trapped they could try to chew their way out through the inside of your property, making nest removal much harder.

Instead call our professionals who can properly remove the nest without agitating the insects.
