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...

Calls are literally flooding in for wasps and bees at the moment, the “season” is in full swing with multiple conflictions between man and insects! The majority of calls at the moment are for Bumble Bees which are invading properties of all types from houses, mobile homes, caravans, sheds and even bird boxes! Bumble Bees are not really classed as a pest and are in fact a useful commodity, as they pollinate plants and flowers. In most cases that I have seen lately, they are White-Tailed Bumble Bees and most have been picking vulnerable locations at higher levels. When they enter a property...

        With the warmer weather that is now with us, the calls for help regarding Bees and Wasps have dramatically increased over the past couple of weeks and are likely to continue until the end of the season. With many different types of insects involved identification can be confusing, so here is a little help!         There are 24 species of Bumble Bees in the United Kingdom and 225 species of solitary bees, but only 1 species of Honey Bee. There are also 8 species of Wasps. Confused? The general rule is to leave alone until you are sure what you are dealing with and the safest way is to...

An Insight into Bees

As the calls for help regarding Bees and Wasps are starting to increase, it is a good idea to look into what Bees are likely to be doing during the coming year. Spring Species of Solitary Bees are emerging from their respective holes and in some cases, causing alarm, because they are being mistaken for Wasps. Nesting areas can include holes in loose mortars of buildings and walls or from areas of short, mown grass, whilst others prefer bare soil.   As temperatures rise, Honeybees will be seen more frequently as they collect pollen for local hives. Single Bumblebees can be seen foraging early...

Summer appears to have finally arrived and if we needed any confirmation then go out into the garden and look at the increase in the number of insects that are flying around! This week has seen a dramatic increase in the call for wasps nests in the area, both inside and outside properties. Nests have varied in size as well as location, ranging from inside air bricks, in lofts, along, or in roof lines and even in ventilation grills. It is VERY important to treat any potential wasps nest with the correct method or chemicals, if not, possible disaster or injury could follow. Wasp control should...

Asian Hornet

Vespa velutina, sometimes known as the ‘Asian hornet’ is an invasive non-native species from Asia. It has recently arrived in France where it is spreading rapidly. As a highly effective predator of insects, including honey bees and other beneficial species, it can cause significant losses to bee colonies, other native species and potentially ecosystems Although it is not yet present in the UK, it is considered likely to arrive soon.  The places it is most likely to be found are in southern parts of England (it may be able to cross the channel from France) or goods among which it...
