Wasp and Bee Pest Control
WaspsWasp nests should treated and where possible removed, when noted in late spring and though the summer season ideally before the formation of mated queens in late autumn, nests are used for one season and can produce up to 300 queens each although they are very unlikely to nest in the same place again the following year.
BeesThere are many species of bee, therefore care should taken in Identification before any plan of action undertaken, usually most colonies can simply be left to carry out their good work but occasionally relocation will be necessary due to health and safety related concerns. We work closely with local beekeepers to recover bees to suitable locations where possible.
True wasps, which include the domestic species, belong to the family Vespidae and can be recognised by their habit of folding the wings lengthwise when at rest.This family includes both social on solitary species, and among the latter is the famous Potter wasp, Eumenes coarctata.
This little insect lives on heathland and the female builds a number of small ‘flasks’ from sand grains, cemented together with saliva.
