In Runcorn & Widnes we now have a fresh and rather aggressive bumble bee, the Tree Bumblebee (Bombus hypnorum). While we attempt not to destroy bees, this type is dangerous when nesting low down in your garden or on the body of your home. We do not generally like to eliminate bees however this bee is risky when nesting in the proximity of people, in particular children and pets. It is an simple bee to distinguish with its orange thorax and white backside and if you believe that you might have a nest of these bees we suggest ringing us right away. You shouldn’t get too close! For assistance with distinguishing this species pay a visit to our wasps and bees site.
If you are calling regarding a wasps’ nest in spring 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 do all we can to support bees wherever possible and we our selves now own a hive of honeybees are often able to sell a jar of honey from the vans. Please visit our Harrier Honey page for full details.

Most common infestations
Runcorn & Widnes Pest Control destroy wasps’ nests in the summertime for a fixed price of just £49.50, we will never demand more to eliminate a wasps’ nest except in cases where specialised access machinery such as a cherry-picker or scaffolding is required to reach the nest
However, once we get much past mid-September we are coping with what we call a late season wasps’ nest, and this may call for added work to make things good for you. Please click the link for full details.
On nearly all occasions we will not even need to have to climb ladders as we use long extension poles which are less dangerous for our technicians, your self and your property.
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.
Our contractor will arrive by scheduled appointment, inject a little bit of powdered insecticide into the entrance to the wasps’ nest and the returning wasps will bring it into the heart of the nest and within just an hour all of the wasps will be dead.
On condition that we can access where the nest is without going through the property then you can pay online and we’ll destroy it while you are out. Our specialist wasp control website offers a PayPal button for you to use. We will then destroy the nest while you are out, but you need to call us to tell us that you have paid and leave open any gates we might need to go through.
If you are aware of any problems which you are aware of which might hinder the process such as the presence of bats then please make us aware of that on the phone.
The prevalent pest of the moment is bed bugs, they are a world-wide pandemic and extremely easily transmitted to your property.
Quite A Few people mix up bed bugs with dust mites. Every bed has tiny, imperceptible to the naked eye dust mites, bed bugs are wholly a different thing.
Bed bugs are easily seen and look like an apple pip, especially when completely developed and newly fed. They are not signs of poor hygiene, all they desire is a blood feed every few days – your blood!
Getting bed bugs is very easy, you don’t even need to stay in an infested hotel, you can catch them on tubes and buses even.
Once set up in your house they will rapidly spread to any linked properties and in a very bad infestation it is possible to experience upwards of 500 bites a night.
These pesky bugs are not a pest which can be tackled by an amateur, you will need to have professional support or you could make things a whole lot worse. If you even think that you may possibly have got bed bugs then talk to Runcorn & Widnes Pest Control.
Many individuals immediately go out and get fresh beds or mattresses, this really is a waste of time and cash as the new bed will be quickly infested by bugs from elsewhere in the house.
Ants are a leading pest of the spring and summer months. Lots of people will know the horror of flying ants coming into their households and hate the summer time for this reason.
However, we are currently a great deal better equipped to deal with ants than we were even a couple of years ago. We can now with confidence offer a 3 year warranty on ant work in the majority of cases.
The treatment is perfectly safe for young children and family pets.
Why throw away cash and struggle for years with powders and potions which fail to work when we can overcome the infestation and give you a guarantee, renewable in 3 year stages.
Cat Fleas and Dog Fleas are proving to be more bothersome in the Runcorn & Widnes Pest Control area and we are getting more and more requests from people who continuously treat their dogs and cats and yet are still getting flea infestations in their houses.
This presents itself to be simply because populations of cat fleas and dog fleas in the Runcorn & Widnes Pest Control region of operation are becoming resistant to the active ingredients in the flea control products and solutions on sale to the public.
The growth of these fleas is also brought about by the increase in the presence of urban foxes in many areas.
It is important to take care of a flea infestation rapidly, particularly in the presence of infants as fleas are intermediate hosts of tapeworm.
