Wasp & Hornet Control

Pest Solution offers wasp and hornet control throughout the entire region of East Anglia – Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex. Wasp and hornet nest destruction is not usually a DIY job. Pest Solution has all the correct protective and application equipment, that allows safe and efficient treatment of nests.

Why do wasps and hornets need to be controlled?
  • Stings
  • Bites
  • Damage to fruit crops and bee hives
  • Damage to property

Wasp and hornet venom is a cocktail of chemicals and whilst most stings give an uncomfortable swelling, to some people one sting may cause life threatening anaphalaxis.


Due to the feeding activities of wasps, their jaws harbour a large variety of different disease causing bacteria. This can lead to infections and it has been said that wasp bites can be more painful than their stings.

Damage to fruit crops and bee hives

A new pest to the UK is the Asian hornet. It is smaller than the European hornet and it kills bees. We are all on alert for this new invasive species.

Damage to property

Wasp activity can cause staining to ceilings and in some cases can lead to them eating through the plasterboard and entering the room below.

Nest Destruction

The nest can be treated with an insecticide which kills off the wasps/hornets usually in about four hours. Usually we do not remove the nest but if you want us to, we can, at an extra charge. Our wasp nest destruction service in guaranteed and if there is any sign of activity after 24 hours, we will return and retreat at no extra cost.

Wasp nest destruction is no longer a statutory duty for local councils. Some councils that no longer offer this service are West Suffolk Council (formerly St Edmundsbury and Forest Heath), Mid SuffolkIpswich and Babergh. Some councils do offer this service, but we can often treat for a lower cost and offer an appointment to suit your schedule.


Wasp Trapping
If the nest cannot be traced, we can provide industry leading wasp traps that will control feeding wasps without damage to resident honey bees. This is part of an integrated wasp management plan.
