Wasp Nest Removal Cost & Prices 2024

Expect to pay on average £70 for a visit to remove a wasp nest, but this can be more depending on the contractor and if the work is at height. A callout is usually around £35-£40, which may be applicable if the wasp nest is already dead or dormant. Extra nests are about £15-£25 per nest.

Average Cost

We received quotes from 27 different contractors across the UK. The prices quoted below involve first treating the nest, then removing it.

Typical Range£50 - £100

Treatment is usually done with pesticides. It is necessary so that there are no live wasps when the nest is removed.

If the contractor is able to remove the wasp nest without any treatment (i.e there are no wasps present and the nest is already dead/dormant) then the quote could be a bit less (£35 – £40 average).

Most contractors will have a fixed price and will guarantee their work. This means if the problem persists within a certain timeframe, a contractor will come back out to your property to fix the problem free of charge.

Factors Affecting Cost

Access to Nest

In situations where specialist equipment is needed such as cherry pickers for high-rise buildings, there are additional costs.

If a contractor cannot reach the nest and has to hire longer ladders, this will increase the cost.

If the nest is within a wall cavity or similar enclosed space it may not be possible to remove it at all.


Labour costs in London and the south of England are generally more expensive than elsewhere. Expect to pay around £80 for a wasp nest removal in London.

If the contractor needs to travel beyond a certain radius, then they may add an extra fee on top. Most pest control companies should be able to deal with a wasp nest. However, some may not, so if you live in a more rural area, you may need to get a quote from a contractor further afield.

Extra Nests

Expect to pay an extra £15-£25 for any extra nests that are present.

What is the Difference Between a Hornet and a Wasp?

Hornets and wasps are similar. However, hornets are typically larger than wasps.

Wasps usually build nests in open, partially sheltered areas like eaves and branches, whereas hornets typically build large, enclosed nests in trees or overhangs.
