From spring through to autumn in Yorkshire, wasps are normally the most abundant of all fearful insect nuisance pests in homes and commercial premises.

Wasp stings can be extremely painful, and individuals react differently to being stung, from a mere redness and swelling in some, to severe allergic reactions resulting in death caused by anaphylactic shock if not treated in time in others.

Evidence of wasps nests can be wasps continually entering your premises under the eaves, roof tiles or air vents, increased activity in and around trees or a hole in the ground.

Once the Queen has found her nest site she will commence building her golf ball sized nest and produce her workers, which are sterile females. These will then take over the nest building duties and feeding the larvae whilst the Queen is left to produce more eggs until the end of summer, when she will produce her fertile males and females.

Once these wasps have mated and left the nest the males will die and the fertilised females will become Queens and hibernate over winter to begin the process once more.

Gary and Wendi at Excel Pest Management recently attended my ageing Auntie’s flat to investigate mice on the premises. Their response time and service was second to none and they went the ‘extra mile’ to ensure that my Auntie can now sleep peacefully at night without having to worry about vermin.
I would certainly recommend Excel Pest Control to get rid of your pests.

goodbye wasps

We had a problem with wasps nests which was resolved very quickly. Excellent service provided, punctual, reliable and thorough. If we have any further problems we now know who to contact.


We just moved into a property and realised the place was riddled in fleas. We called excel pest management and he reacted fast. He was with us within 24h of the phone call. He came in done the first spray which did the job then 2 weeks later done the second lot of spraying to be sure all eggs and fleas have gone. Really pleased with his service and would recommend to anyone with the same problem. Fantastic job done!!


After using various companies for mole control unsuccessfully, Excel Pest Control had the situation under control after one visit. A very responsive, knowledgeable and professional service who have proved invaluable in helping us keep our grounds looking good at our holiday cottages !
