As the temperatures have slowly risen the wasp season has started with a bang! The calls for wasps’ nests and wasp invasions have dramatically increased over the last couple of days and it is likely to continue for the rest of the season until late Autumn. So far the majority of wasps’ nests have been situated in gardens, mainly shrubs, hedges and in the ground. This is slowly being replaced by building invasions taking place where wasps are entering properties via gaps in brickwork, air bricks, under roof tiles and via gaps in lead flashing. It is very important before commencing any...

Honey Bees Mainly kept by beekeepers, but can be found living wild. They are a similar size to a wasp but are overall darker in colour, ranging from black to tan coloured banding.

Honey bees frequent gardens to collect pollen and nectar and require fluids to survive, often visiting ponds or other water sources to collect. If left alone, they are normally harmless but can cause panic when they swarm in large numbers and will sting to protect the queen. Honey bees are valuable to the...

A wasp can fly faster than a running human! If you try and swat a wasp, it will emit a pheromone which will attract other wasps. Only female wasps can sting and it is used as a way of defence. They can sting multiple times, unlike a bee that can only sting once. The two main species of wasp in the UK are Vespula vulgaris and Vespula germanica. The Queen wasps come out of hibernation, usually in early April to commence nest building. When the first batch of eggs hatch out and pupate into wasps, these will then support the Queen by bringing back food and continuing the nest building, allowing...

        The wasp season is certainly upon us and it is VERY busy! When selecting a nest site, the queen wasp can be very inventive and take advantage of whatever locations take her fancy. It might be where she has been hibernating over the winter in a cosy shed. Where there is plenty of room to expand in a dry environment, perfect for producing more wasps.       Outside may be a better option, how about under the eaves of a house ?         Or maybe putting a wasp nest in a shrub in the garden?   Or how about building inside a hedge?...

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...
