Vermin -“Wild animals which are believed to be harmful to crops, farm animals, or game, or which carry disease, e.g. rodents.” Origin: Middle English (originally denoting animals such as reptiles and snakes): from Old French, based on Latin vermis ‘worm’. There is a lot of talk about vermin or vermin control and it usually refers to rodents, rats, mice, birds including pigeons and sometimes foxes. It normally means that a certain animal has become a pest and needs to be killed or removed. No animals or birds are actually classified as vermin and what one person may consider to be vermin may...

What a summer! The weather has been very hot to say the least and many people have enjoyed the sun and reaped its benefits. Nature has had to adapt to the very dry conditions to preserve valuable moisture, none more so than the mole. A very hard-working animal that few have ever seen, but its results are everywhere – MOLEHILLS! As the ground dried out, these industrious creatures were forced to new areas to feed on their primary source of food, worms. Molehills started to appear everywhere very soon in the season as the heatwave took hold and the ground became parched. It is generally...

As the summer period progresses and autumn rapidly approaches, wasps can become more of a problem, not only to humans, but to the general bee population as well. There are six species of wasp in the United Kingdom that could cause serious problems for bees and these include the common wasp, the German wasp and the European hornet. Their respective nests can be found in trees, shrubs, hedges, underground and in many cases human properties! This year, so far, has seen a dramatic increase in the number of nests found in general houses, outbuildings, such as sheds or garages and even in...

Wasps – The basics

Wasps are not considered as a public health risk, but if a wasps nest is found in or around your property or garden, then I am sure you will disagree! If a nest is disturbed in any way, either by human or animal interference, then wasps will sting and will protect their nest vigorously, attacking anything within a suitable distance. The effects of a wasps’ sting can vary from person to person, ranging from being painful, to being very serious, especially if the person stung suffers an attack of Anaphylaxis, this is a severe and potentially life-threatening reaction to a trigger such as an...

Verwood is a town and parish found in Dorset and is situated 5 miles north west of Ringwood in Hampshire. The local river is called the Crane which eventually becomes the Moors river. The town is surrounded by both heathland and forest and also farm land. The heathland has always figured in the history of the town, providing clay and sand for pottery products and the natural ingredients for animal food and brushes. Agriculture has always played a large part as well. Being a larger town often attracts animals, insects and birds and this is certainly the case in Verwood due to its rural...

The first sign of a pending wasps nest is the queen wasp’s nest, the size of a golf ball, in a loft, shed or other quiet position, somewhere in Moordown, Bournemouth, where she has spent the winter months.           Cells are built into the nest a few at a time to begin with in Parkstone, Poole until the first batch of eggs pupate into workers.         As more worker wasps arrive the nest is enlarged in Christchurch and full scale production can commence!         Depending on the weather and temperatures, the nest can grow rapidly in Ringwood and further layers are filled with yet more eggs....
