Wasp Control - Wasps Nest Removal

Burben Pest Control provide a wasp control service by injecting professional-grade insecticidal dust into the wasp nest.

Wasps do not use the same wasp nest twice, so it is not neccessary to remove the wasp nest as they usually disintergrate with time. However, for your peace of mind we can return a few days after treatment to remove the wasp nest at an additional charge if required.

What do wasps & wasp nests look like?

The body of the Common Wasp (also known as the Yellow-Jacket Wasp) is made up of black & yellow bands. The length of a wasp varies between 18 to 23mm depending on if it is an adult queen (23mm), an adult male (22mm) or an adult worker (18mm).


A wasp nest is usually made up of chewed bark & dried timber mixed with saliva, and is a light grey/biege colour with a papery appearance. Wasp nests are most commonly found in the eaves of a building, attics, roof spaces, airbricks, sheds, cavity walls & sometimes trees.
