We now have the Tree Bumblebee (Bombus hypnorum) in the Oldham area. Though we seek not to destroy bees, this type is dangerous when nesting low down in the garden or on the body of your building. We do not usually want to kill bees but this bee is risky when nested in the area of people, in particular small children and pets. Its characteristic markings, black body, the orange thorax and white tail, make it straight forward to recognize and we advocate calling a pest controller right away if you think you could possibly have got a nest. In the meantime keep well away as this bee can and will sting. If you are not sure about identification then please go 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.

Our price for destroying wasps’ nests is set at £35 and we will definitely not ask you for more unless access equipment such as scaffolding or a cherry-picker is needed to access the nest. Please note that operating at height legislation is very rigorous these days so please tell us if the nest is any taller than the guttering of a normal residential house.
The only exemption is in the case of a late season wasps’ nest, and this may call for additional work to make things good for you. Please click the link for entire details.
We try and tackle wasps’ nests from the outside of the building whenever feasible and we have a preference for using long lances instead of ladders, it’s less hazardous for everyone 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.
You will be offered the first available appointment, frequently same-day and our technician will eliminate the wasps’ nest by injecting a small measure of powder into the entrance where the wasps are coming and going. The wasps will transport this powder into the nest on their bodies and the whole colony will be dead inside of the hour.
So long as we can get to where the nest is without going through the premises then you can pay on line and we’ll destroy it whilst you are out. Our specialist wasp control website has a prepayment facility for you to buy by paypal or credit card, sorry we can accept credit cards online or on site but not over the phone. Kindly telephone us to tell us you’ve prepaid and to advise us where the nest is. Also please don’t forget to open any gates etc that we may need to pass through and move any dustbins etc which may be in the way.
If you are aware of any difficulties which you are aware about which may hinder the procedure such as the existence of bats then make sure you make us aware of that over the phone.
The prevalent pest of the day is bed bugs, they are a world-wide plague and extremely easily transmitted to your property.
There is a tremendous amount of misunderstanding between bed bugs and dust mites. In contrast to dust mites which are quite safe, bed bugs are not found in just about every bed but only in the beds of individuals less than fortunate enough to become infested.
Bed bugs are readily spotted and look like an apple pip, particularly when fully grown and newly fed. They are not indications of bad hygiene, all they require is a blood meal every few days – your blood!
You can carry bed bugs to your residence merely by staying in an infested hotel room or even by sitting next to the wrong person on the tube.
It only requires a lone female to quickly create an infestation in your dwelling and they spread like wildfire through linked premises, semi-detached and terraced etc. If the infestation is very severe you can get 4-600 bites per night and become really quite ill.
These pesky bugs are not a pest which can be tackled by an nubile, you will need expert assistance or you could make things worse. If you even think that you could possibly have bed bugs then talk to Oldham Pest Control.
Well before you take any steps at all, certainly do not invest in a brand-new bed or mattress since it will probably be infested by bed bugs on the first night.
Ants are a major pest of the spring and summer months. So many people will appreciate the horror of flying ants rising into their properties and hate the summer time for this reason.
However, we are currently much better prepared to contend with ants than we were even a handful of of years ago. We can now with confidence offer a three year guarantee on ant work in the majority of cases.
The process is completely safe for children and your pets.
Don’t spend money on ant powders and ant gels when we can remedy your indoors ant infestation at a sensible price and offer you a renewable 3 year guarantee in the bargain.
Fleas infestations are on the increase again, even with people who frequently treat their dogs and cats.
This may be that populations of cat fleas and dog fleas are starting to be impervious to the active ingredients in the flea remedies sold to the public.
We are finding that dog fleas and cat fleas are particularly bothersome in places with town foxes.
It is essential to address a flea infestation rapidly, especially in the presence of little ones as fleas are intermediate hosts of tapeworm.
