Bees & Wasps
Every now and again, bees head off to start a new hive. This is sometimes inside the wall of a home. They go in through a weep hole under a window in the bricks. This is normally on the northerly facing side of the house.
It may be kind to leave them there, but in the end they will do damage to the house.
We have treated homes where irate bees have suddenly emerged into a small toilet room, with someone visiting!
One home had honey from the honey comb soaking through the plaster and dripping down from the ceiling that divided the upper and lower levels of a two story house.
Bees can be scary or annoying if they are buzzing around an entrance way.
First we would recommend calling a bee keeper and see if he is interested in smoking out the bees and moving them to a better location.
However if you want them destroyed, then we can come and inject poison into their hive that will kill them.
A basic treatment will cost about $295
There is a 30 day warranty with bees. Interestingly, they tend to return every year, so we will advise you how to prevent them from re-entering your home.
Ouch! That sting really hurts.
There are many types of wasps on the Gold Coast, some are aggressive and will sting easily and others not. If you have wasps hanging off your eaves, or nesting in your window frames, you may want to call us.
Many people get stung trying to treat wasps themselves, or when they are in the garden and brush up against a wasp's nest in a bush.
A simple spray will kill wasps, and soaking the nest will kill the juveniles.
A basic treatment will cost about $145 or for $185 we will include spiders as well if you wish.
There is a 3 month warranty with wasps. We will treat other nests for free if they return!
Fortunately, European wasps are rarely found on the Gold Coast. These wasps are very aggressive and their sting is very painful, and multiple stings may lead to death. These wasps tend to live in a hollow, and if you suspect you have them, then you should ring us for professional help straight away. You should also keep children and pets well away.
We prefer to kill these wasps from a long distance, whilst wearing protective clothing. Once the main defenders are dead, we will soak the nest to kill the juveniles.
A basic treatment will cost about $250.
