With calls for rats still coming in on a daily basis, especially from the Bournemouth and Poole area, it might be worth just looking at, what is in fact, causing a lot of the problems. In the urban environment the main problem is our way of living! Food is in plentiful supply and waste is on the increase. It is not just the odd discarded half eaten burger or kebab, discarded sweets, unwanted sandwich, or thrown away tins or bottles that are feeding the ever growing number of pests including rats, mice, squirrels, birds and even insects.

Wasps are very good at adapting the local environment to suit their needs and this is especially true when foliage is removed to allow easier flight paths to an established wasps nest.
