Wasp Nest Removal Cost & Prices 2023

Wasp nests are often found in late summer and can contain thousands of individual wasps.

Removing a wasp nest can be tricky. Whenever they feel threatened, they can often become aggressive and sting you to defend their nest.

Therefore, it’s best to let a professional pest control company treat and remove it. However, how much can you expect to pay to call out a specialist?

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 - £80

Treatment is usually done with pesticide. 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.

The only thing that will affect the cost is if we cannot reach the nest and we have to hire longer ladders. That would be very unusual as we have ladders and extension poles.

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.
