In the Urmston area we now have a brand-new and fairly aggressive bumble bee, the Tree Bumblebee (Bombus hypnorum). Though we seek not to hurt bees, this variety is hazardous when nesting low down in a garden or on the body of your home. We do not generally want to eliminate bees however this bee is risky when nesting in the proximity of persons, particularly young children and pets. It is an easy bee to identify with its orange thorax and white backside and if you suspect that you might have a nest of these bees we recommend contacting us straight away. In the meantime keep away as this bee can and will sting. If you are unsure about identification then please visit 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 ourselves now keep honey bees and are able to supply small amounts of honey. Please visit our Harrier Honey dedicated web page for further information.

Most common infestations
Our fee for destroying wasps’ nests is fixed at £39.50 and we will definitely not ask you for extra unless access apparatus such as scaffolding or a cherry-picker is necessary to gain access to the nest. Please note that operating at height legislation is very restrictive these days so please advise us if the nest is any higher than the guttering of a typical household premises.
The only exception is in the case of a late season wasps’ nest, where a supplementary treatment to your loft space may be required.
We try and deal with wasps’ nests from the outside of the property whenever possible and we have a preference for to use extended lances in place of ladders, it’s much safer for all concerned.
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 operative will arrive by appointment, inject a little bit of powdered wasp killer into the entry to the wasps’ nest and the returning wasps will bring it into the centre of the nest and inside of an hour every one of the wasps will be dead.
Providing we can reach the wasps’ nest from the outside of the property you do not even have got to wait in. 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 make sure you phone us to tell us that you have paid and keep open any gates we might need to go through.
If there are any problems which you are aware of that may hinder the treatment such as the presence of bats then please inform us of that over the phone.
Bed Bugs are rampant in the Urmston Pest Control area of business and numerous specialists feel that the Olympic Games will result in an increase in these disgusting infestations over the next few years.
There is a huge amount of misunderstanding between bed bugs and dust mites. In contrast to dust mites which are quite benign, bed bugs are not present in every bed but only in the beds of people unlucky enough to become infested.
Bed bugs are very easily spotted and resemble an apple pip, especially when completely grown and recently fed. They’re not signs of bad sanitation, all they need to have is a blood feed every week or so – your blood!
You can transport bed bugs to your residence just by staying in an infested hotel room or even by sitting next to the wrong person on the train.
It only takes a single female to swiftly develop an infestation in your property and they disperse like wildfire through connected premises, semi-detached and terraced etc. If the infestation is very bad you can acquire 4-600 bites per night and become really quite ill.
These pesky bugs are not a pest that can be dealt with by an inexperienced, you will want specialist help or you will make matters worse. If you even suspect that you might possibly have bed bugs then talk to Urmston Pest Control.
Many people immediately go out and purchase new beds or mattresses, this truly is a waste of time and cash as the new bed will be immediately infested by bugs from everywhere else in the room.
