In the Wigan area we now have a brand-new and fairly belligerent bumble bee, the Tree Bumblebee (Bombus hypnorum). Although we try not to harm bees, this variety is dangerous when nesting low down in your garden or on the structure of your house. We do not generally want to remove bees but this bee is risky when nesting in the area of persons, particularly young children and pets. Its characteristic markings, black body, the orange thorax and white tail, make it simple to spot and we advise ringing a pest controller straightaway you believe that you might possibly have a nest. In the interim keep well away as this bee can and will sting. If you are undecided about identification then please visit our wasps and bees site.

Our fee for destroying wasps’ nests is set at £39.50 and we will definitely not ask you for more unless access apparatus such as scaffolding or a cherry-picker is needed to gain access to the nest. Please note that working at height procedures are very strict these days so please advise us if the nest is any taller than the guttering of a normal domestic property.
The only exception is in the case of a late season wasps’ nest, and this may require additional work to make things safe and secure for you. Please click the link for extensive details.
On nearly all occasions we are not going to even need to have to employ ladders as we use long extension poles which are less dangerous for our technicians, yourself and your home.
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 come along by scheduled appointment, inject a little bit of powder insecticide into the entrance to the wasps’ nest and the returning wasps will carry it into the heart of the nest and within just an hour all the wasps will be dead.
Provided that we can access where the nest is without going through the premises then you can pre-pay on line and we’ll deal with it while you are out. Our specialist wasp control website has a prepayment feature for you to pay by credit card, sorry we can take credit cards using the internet or on-site but not over the telephone. Kindly call us to inform us you’ve prepaid and to inform us just where the nest is. Also remember to don’t forget to unlock any gates etc that we might need to pass through and move any dustbins etc which might be obstructing our path.
If you know of any problems which you are aware of that may have an affect on the treatment such as the existence of bats then you should inform us of that over the telephone.
Bed Bugs are rife in the Wigan Pest Control area of business and most authorities are convinced that the Olympic Games will bring about a surge in these disgusting unwanted pests during the next few years.
A Lot of people confuse bed bugs with dust mites. Unlike dust mites which are reasonably safe, bed bugs are not present in just about every bed but only in the beds of individuals unlucky enough to get infested.
Bed bugs are roughly the size and shape of an apple pip and dine exclusively on blood, your blood!
Acquiring bed bugs is quite 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 single female to quickly establish an infestation in your house and they disperse like wildfire throughout linked properties, semi-detached and terraced etc. If the infestation is very severe you can get 4-600 bites per night and become actually quite ill.
Whatever you do PLEASE don’t try and cope with the infestation by yourself, I guarantee that you will only make matters worse. If you think that you could have got a bed bug problem then please call us for information well before you do anything at all.
Well before you take any steps at all, definitely do not buy a new bed or mattress since it will be infested by bed bugs on the very first night.
People who have got an ant infestation on the inside of their properties will understand just how horrific it can be, chiefly when the flying ants present themselves.
However, we are currently a great deal better prepared to cope with ants than we were even a couple of years ago. We can now with full confidence offer a three year guarantee on ant work in the majority of cases.
The process is completely safe for young children and family pets.
Don’t spend pounds on ant powders and ant gels when we can cure your indoors ant infestation at a sensible rate and offer you a renewable 3 year guarantee in the bargain.
Cat Fleas and Dog Fleas are growing to be more bothersome in the Wigan Pest Control area and we are receiving an increasing number of telephone calls from people who routinely treat their pets and nevertheless are still getting flea infestations in their houses.
This appears to be mainly because populations of cat fleas and dog fleas in the Wigan Pest Control area of operation are proving to be resistant to the active ingredients in the flea control products readily available to the general public.
We are finding that dog fleas and cat fleas are especially bothersome in areas with town foxes.
It is important to address a cat flea or a dog flea infestation as they can cause serious problems, especially for small children as they can carry and pass on tapeworms.
