We work 7 days per week for the insect season, April – November, including bank holidays. We cover the whole of the Southport and Sefton area.
In the Southport area we now have a fresh and fairly aggressive bumble bee, the Tree Bumblebee (Bombus hypnorum). While we strive not to hurt bees, this type is hazardous when nesting low down in a garden or on the body of your premises. We do not ordinarily really like to get rid of bees but this bee is risky when nesting in the proximity of persons, particularly children and pets. It is an simple bee to recognise with its orange thorax and white hindquarters and if you believe that you might have got a nest of these bees we suggest getting in touch with us straight away. In the meantime keep away as this bee can and will sting. If you are uncertain on about identification then please visit our wasps and bees site.
We are devotees of bees and wildlife generally and in 2013 in order to try and help honeybees we got to be beekeepers our selves and are often able to supply small amounts of local honey to our clients. Take a look at our Harrier Honey dedicated web page for further information.

Most common pests
Our fee for dealing with wasps’ nests is set at £49.50 and we will never ask you for more unless access apparatus such as scaffolding or a cherry-picker is needed to access the nest. Please note that working at height laws are very exacting these days so please advise us if the nest is any higher than the guttering of a standard domestic house.
The only exception to this rule is in the case of a late season wasps’ nest, where a supplementary treatment to your attic space may be necessary.
We try and handle wasps’ nests from the out side of the building if at all feasible and we like to use very long lances in place of ladders, it’s less dangerous for all involved.
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 come along by scheduled appointment, inject a little bit of powder insecticide into the entry to the wasps’ nest and the returning wasps will transport it into the centre of the nest and within just an hour all the wasps will be dead.
As long as we can get to where the nest is without walking through the house then you can prepay on-line and we’ll destroy it whilst you are out. Our specialist wasp control website offers a PayPal button for you to use. We will then get rid of the nest while you are out, but you need to telephone us to let us know that you have paid and leave unlocked any gates we might need to go through.
If there are any issues which may be related such as the presence of bats etc then please don’t wait until we arrive on site to tell us about them, we won’t carry out a treatment if it’s dangerous but we will ask you for a call-out fee.
The prevalent pest of the moment is bed bugs, they are a world-wide plague and effortlessly transported to your property.
There is a large amount of misunderstanding between bed bugs and dust mites. Distinct From dust mites which are quite safe, bed bugs are not found in every bed but only in the beds of individuals unfortunate enough to become infested.
Bed bugs are approximately the size and shape of an apple pip and dine only on blood, your blood!
Acquiring bed bugs is very easy, you do not even need to stay in an infested hotel, you can find them on tubes and buses even.
It only takes a lone female to rapidly establish an infestation in your home and they spread like wildfire through attached premises, semi-detached and terraced etc. If the infestation is very severe you can suffer 4-600 bites per night and become really very ill.
Whatever you do PLEASE do not try and deal with the infestation by yourself, I promise that you will simply just make matters a lot worse. If you suspect that you might have got a bed bug infestation then please call us for information well before you do anything at all.
Well before you consider any actions at all, definitely do not get a brand new bed or bedding as it is going to be infested by bed bugs on the first night.
Ants are a major pest of the spring and summer months. So many people will understand the fear of flying ants rising into their homes and dislike the the summer months for this reason.
Pest control know-how has progressed in leaps and bounds over the last couple of years and Southport Pest Control now have the means to overcome ant infestations inside your home, and in the majority of instances give a three year guarantee on the property.
The procedure is very straightforward, leaves no mess and is safe for all concerned.
Do not spend money on ant dusts and ant gels when we can remedy your indoors ant infestation at a sensible rate and offer you a renewable three year guarantee in the bargain.
Cat Fleas and Dog Fleas are getting to be more bothersome in the Southport Pest Control area and we are getting more and more requests from people who continuously treat their pets and yet are still suffering flea infestations in their homes.
This may perhaps be that populations of cat fleas and dog fleas are starting to be resistant to the active ingredients in the flea treatments 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 vital to take care of a cat flea or a dog flea infestation as they can bring about significant problems, particularly for children as they can carry and pass on tapeworms.
