We do wasp control across Auckland

New Zealand has some of the highest densities of social wasps in the world. They cause an estimated $130 million of damage to the New Zealand environment each year. Wasps have very few natural predators here in Aotearoa, our winters are mild and food is plentiful which makes our country a perfect place for wasps to flourish.

Wasps can ruin our summer al fresco dining and picnics.  You can trust us to protect you and your family from these destructive pests.

Stop the stings

Wasp stings hurt, and for some they can be life threatening. To reduce the risk of anybody at your home or business being stung by wasps, arrange for professional wasp control by calling Bug King. We’ll come and clear out the wasps nests, eliminate the wasps and keep you, your family, colleagues, customers and friends  safe from the threat of stings.

Spotting wasp nests

Wasp nest eradication is critical if you want to get rid of wasps buzzing around your home and stop those painful wasp stings.

If you get too close to a wasp nest, or even worse, disturb it, wasps can attack. Multiple stings are a serious and sometimes life threatening, even for those who are not allergic to them. Wasp swarm attacks do happen in Auckland and they are dangerous.

Leave wasp control and nest eradication to the professionals at Bug King.

We take wasp control seriously

Wasps can be dangerous so we treat them with urgency. We’ll do our very best to to your home or business ASAP.

How will we approach your wasp problem?

We’ll work out they type of wasp problem you have and we’ll work out where the wasps are nesting. The two types of wasp that cause the most harm around Auckland are the common vespula wasp and the paper wasp.

We’ll then decide on which type of treatment is best suited to your situation and give you a quote. In most cases, we will use a powdered permethrin. This kills wasps  on contact and other wasps will not return to the nest.

And wasp nest removal?

Once the nest has been treated and wasps exterminated, we recommend leaving it in place. Wasps don’t re-use old nests and if you remove it, the spot becomes free for another queen to build a nest.
