Pest Control: Reporting a failed treatment

Wasps and bees

If the treatment was only undertaken in the last few days you will need to wait 48 hours to give the treatment time to work. Wasps that were not in the nest at the time of the treatment will die overnight. Wasps from other nests will forage around the treated nest for 48 hours but will not be able to enter. After that there should be no activity in the vicinity of the nest.

If the treatment is more than 48hrs old, submit the form below.

Fleas, cockroaches and other insects

If the treatment was undertaken in the last 14 days, you will need to wait until 14 days have elapsed to give the treatment time to work. Insects will hide in cracks and crevices and it may take days for them to emerge, also they will lay eggs in similar places that can take up to 14 days to hatch. Residual insecticides will kill the insects but it may take time for them to come in contact with the poison.

If you are not prepared to wait for 14 days we will come out sooner but you will be charged a £26 respray charge.
