The higher cost will include wasp nest removal from hard to access areas like loft spaces and walls, and the lower end is for an easily accessible location for wasp nest treatment.

Our pest controllers use the right equipment to reach and address the most inaccessible wasp nests. You usually do not need to leave your home and property during or after wasp treatment unless your safety is at risk.
Ants – We will inspect, target and eliminate all indoor ants, in particular the black ants that are a common pest during the summertime between the months of late May-August.
Whether ants are in your garden or flying insects in your home, our service uses the most effective methods, from targeted sprays to selective baiting gels to remove your ant problem.
Here are some popular questions we get asked.
The most popular reason that ants will invade your home is that the worker ants have found access to foods like sugars. When ants do find a food source, they tell the rest of the ant nest, by sending a message to the other worker ants, and suddenly swarms of these ants will come into your home to collect food for the rest of their colony.
To avoid attracting more ants in your home, it is best not to squash them. By squashing ants, you are triggering a scent that will attract more insects. A pest control expert can identify the type of ant that has invaded, and remove the nest and the entire colony from your home quickly and with the best effectiveness.

Pros address ant issues by locating the main colony. Typically this process starts by laying bait traps, which contain poisoned food taken back to the ant nest. Once identified, an exterminator will use a variety of methods, including chemical sprays, to eliminate the ants in your home.

We Resolve Your Rats and Mice Issues
Mice and Rats: The differences, Habits and Prevention
Seeing a mouse or a rat in your property is never pleasant. In most cases, there is always more than one. These rodents never leave your property on their own, and an infestation is imminent as they rapidly reproduce.
Although both rodent species do the same damage to your home and carry the same diseases, the exterminators from Apex will inspect and reveal the causes of your mice or rats, and how to solve the infestation problem quickly.
Rodent Control – In general, both species will eat almost anything. However, their favourite foods are wheat products like bread and cereal. Some rats will get pickier and eat only fruit. You can become infected with hantavirus through exposure to rodent droppings, especially those of the deer mouse.
For the reasons already mentioned above, it is vital that you act quickly to remove the rodents from your property.
Traditional rat snap traps are now ineffective against an infestation of rats. Pro-grade baiting using a mixture of pesticides for fighting rats is a choice for successful control. And selecting the right level of pro rodenticide to place in the bait stations.
Call Apex today on 0114 3491098 for rat infestations.
The First Step in dealing with a Rat infestation is Inspection. Inspection is important to assess the size and work needed to get rid of rats. Once you know the location of the rats, you can place the bait, stop sources of food and water then protect the property using proofing methods.
Call Apex today on 0114 3491098 to solve your rat issues.
Rodents will invade any home and property in search of food and a safe place to nest and raise their young, particularly during winter to avoid the worst of the cold. Food source will attract rats like bits of food, fruit bowls or bird feeders. Rats and mice get also invited to water sources like pet dishes.
Rats are mainly active at night therefore it is often easier to spot the signs of a rat infestation than just one rat.
Typically one rat produces 40 droppings, more than this means more than one rat.
Signs like rub marks, footprints, scratching noises and shredded building fabrics like loft insulation, cardboard and gnawed wood will be signs of rats nesting.
