Pest Overview

Bees, Hornets and Wasp Removal

With current hybrids delivering stings that can last for days its time to get a professional in. Keep children well away from any nest and give us a call.

Wasps are one of the more aggressive species we deal with and can sting even when unprovoked. Several people die from being stung and their reaction to it every year. If you suspect your child is showing more than what might be an upset reaction to having been stung please be aware of the signs and symptoms of anaphylactic shock which can be potentially life threatening.

Bee and wasp numbers within a nest can be as high as 20 – 30,000 however with bees showing a general decline in numbers TP Pest Services wherever possible will try to remove the nest and relocate wherever possible.

How we help
Free Site Survey

It will be obvious you have a problem however we do offer a free site survey and will advise what type of nest we are dealing with and how best to provide the most sound solution with minimal impact to your family/business.
You remain under no obligation.

Control Method

We use a very fine powdered insecticide which we spray directly into the nest in most cases and can where possible remove the nest at the same time. Wasp nests unlike honey bees are never re-used. If a honey bee nest remains further bees will be attracted by the smell from the honey.

Please do advise us if you think a high ladder will be necessary, we do have long lances that in most cases can reach.

Please don’t delay in phoning us, wasps although not carriers of disease can in numbers be a health risk. Call 07557 880872.

Facts about the pest

Bees, Wasps and Hornets

Bumblebee and European Honey Bee.

These two are the most common of the 24 different types of native bumblebee; however bumblebees sometimes confused with honeybees are larger in size, rounder and are furry in appearance. They also have many variations in stripe colour across the ends of their tails.

Honeybees are as the name suggests the source of honey, they are small and range in colour from brown to black. Honeybees die after stinging as a result of the barbs in their sting pulling out the venom sack from their body which continues to pump after the bee has been swiped off. Only the queen and females can sting. A small number of people have a higher sensitivity to the sting which can be very serious causing anaphylactic shock and immediate medical help should be sought.

It is possible a colony may number as many as 30,000 bees so it is advisable to leave well alone and give a professional pest controller a call.

Bees are essential as pollinators crucial in our eco system but contrary to what you see on some sites they are not protected. They are however in decline and TP Pest Control Services works with local bee keepers and associations to remove the bees and nest and relocate wherever possible.

Solitary/ Masonry Bees

Solitary bees and masonry bees again as the name suggests can be found popping in and out of poorly pointed households and buildings including small holes in the ground. There are over 200 species in the UK and characteristics include a red to brown to brown tail and will be almost black.


Wasps at 10 to 15mm long are quite large and are especially noted by their high pitched buzz. Bright yellow with black stripes the body is smooth in comparison to the hairy bumble bees. Mainly found in the roof space or garden shed they also make a round nest in trees and bushes. The nest is made by chewing wood and mixing with saliva which forms a paper mache like material. You can expect over 20,000 wasps in a typical nest and treating the nest can be dangerous as the wasps will react to protect their young and the nest.

Wasps are one of the more aggressive species we deal with and can sting even when unprovoked. Several people die from being stung and their reaction to it every year.

TP Pest Control services offer a free call out and site survey correctly identifying the target species and treating with the appropriate insecticide.

Trading Standards Reviews

  • Extremely thorough

    We contacted Terry after seeing rats in the garden, then hearing them in the attic - this was on a Sunday. We got in touch with Terry straight away and, despite being very busy, he came in the next couple of days. He explained his methods and prices and agreed a plan beforehand and then got started immediately with checking our house, the drains, all around the garden, etc. He was extremely thorough and stayed over an hour, checking everything and giving advice. There were then 2 more visits, one a few days later - by which time most of the rats had already disappeared and then again 2 weeks later to be totally sure. Terry is friendly, polite, and very professional. Lovely to meet Max, his clever little dog, too! Great job - would definitely recommend Terry (and Max!)
