The removal of a wasp nest can vary in price based on location, type of wasp or hornet, the size of the wasp nest, and the chosen treatment to eliminate them from your home. On average, you can expect to pay anywhere from $90 for smaller, less aggressive, or easier to remove nests, to $350 for a nest located on structures way up high – and harder to reach.
Hornet removal, the most aggressive of the wasp family, tends to be more expensive for obvious reasons, while a ground nest can typically be removed for about $125 depending on the size and location of the nest.
Not all wasps are aggressive, and most do not bother humans, but if they are bugging you a pest control company will charge you somewhere in the neighborhood of $90 to remove a non-aggressive wasp nest (ie, this is the common wasp in Vancouver area, and is the typical paper wasp removal cost).
