Wasp and bee control

Why do I need wasp and bee control?

Many of us have been stung by a bee or wasp in the past and have experienced first-hand just how excruciating the pain can be. Having wasps and bees nesting in and around your home dramatically increases the likelihood of you or your family members getting stung – highlighting the need for effective wasp and bee control.

Both species of insect are highly territorial and will defend their homes against anyone who gets too close, which can be especially dangerous with children or individuals with allergic reactions to the toxins of these insects. There are different control methods recommended for each of these insects.


The bee population is endangered and vital to the environment. Without a substantial bee population, entire ecosystems can collapse, the effects of which can be devastating on both the natural environment and the agricultural industry.

Occasionally bees will create a home in an area that is close to human activity, and while this can be inconvenient and occasionally dangerous, it is imperative that you contact a pest control professional who will often refer the job onto a beekeeper to ensure that the hive is relocated to a safe place.

Saving the bees: Precision Pest Control’s collaboration with Sydney Bee Rescue


While bees typically have fairly large nests with many individuals members, wasp nests can sometimes be relatively small in comparison and are often hard to find. There are two main species of wasps in our areas of operation:

  • Paper wasps – this species of wasp build their nests in manmade structures like open pipes or in bushes and trees. We treat these wasps by removing the nest where possible, or treating the nest and immediate surroundings with an approved liquid spray.
  • European wasps – this species of wasp establish larger nests, occasionally accumulating as many as 4000 members. These wasps typically build their nests in wall cavities or holes in the ground, and are attracted to sweet drinks and food, often hanging around areas where pets are fed or garbage disposal. Wasps can be highly territorial and dangerous, so it is highly recommended you contact a Precision Pest Control pest professional.
