Wasp & Bee Control

Prominent in the warmer months, Wasps and Bees can be a genuine and dangerous problem once they begin building nests in and around buildings.

About Our Wasp & Bee Control

Paper Wasps and European Wasps are increasingly becoming a serious pest around the Canberra and Queanbeyan regions.

While waps and bee stings will typically inflict pain, it’s important to know that the results can be fatal in some cases.

Armageddon Pest Control recommends that you do not attempt to approach or remove nesting wasps or bees. Call us, and we’ll take care of it.

Wasps & Bees Common To Canberra

While there are many Wasp species found in Australia, Canberra being no exception, you’ll commonly find European, Paper and Mud Wasps locally. When it comes to Bee’s there’s no shortage; in fact, there are over 1500 native bee species!

Paper Wasps

Paper Wasps build their nests on human-made structures such as eaves, open pipes or in bushes and trees.

The nest and surrounding areas are treated with an approved liquid spray. If the nest is accessible, we will remove it. We also check the area for other nests.

Paper Wasps can be a real issue around Canberra homes, call Armageddon Pest Control if you spot them nesting.
We take care to preserve and remove bees in a safe and controlled manner around Canberra.


Bees are endangered and are vitally important to our ecosystem. However, occasionally bees can create a hive in a wall cavity or somewhere that poses a risk to humans.

If you have a problem with bees in or near your home, call us. Often you will be referred to a Beekeeper for the safe removal of the bees (safe for both humans and bees) as bees are beneficial for the environment.

European Wasps

European Wasps establish their nests in Canberra in the Spring. By late Autumn they can read up to 4000 wasps per nest, quickly becoming a dangerous hazard.

They build their nests in well-hidden holes in the ground, wall cavities and roofs. Their nests can be spotted by paying attention to their activity.

If nests are disturbed accidentally or otherwise people can be stung, making them particularly dangerous for young children. Wasp stings are becoming increasingly common in Canberra.

The wasps are attracted to sweet drink and food, including pet food. Wasps, unlike Bees, have the ability to sting you more than once.

Feed pets inside and never attempt to remove a nest yourself.

European Wasps are truely pesky critters and they love building nests in and around Canberra homes.
