Eliminate wasps in your business

The Forest of Dean District Council pest control department can help you to eliminate wasp nuisance in your business. In addition to offering a cost effective treatment for wasp nests, we can provide traps for protecting prone areas such as:

  • beer gardens & food stalls
  • cafes & restaurants
  • food businesses and rubbish bins

Using a unique pesticide and toxin free baiting system to attract wasps, the trap is an efficient and contains the wasps in the unit.

Aborted visit charge

A 50% call out fee applies for any visit where treatment is unable to be undertaken due to non-infestation on arrival, health and safety issues, or you fail to be at your premises at the time of the appointment.
