**Squirrels: We only provide treatments to control squirrels in loft areas. We will give advice on proofing but we cannot undertake any proofing work.

*** Wasp nests: Cost is for nests at low level (first floor eves level) or is safely accessible from a boarded attic. Nests above first floor level require a survey - a service charge will still apply. We will give you a quote if access equipment is required. We do not remove the nests or treat nests that do not cause a problem.
