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 always live in a colony with a queen bee in charge, in which, numbers could reach up to 20000 bees. 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.

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?...

With summer now disappearing, autumn is here and already the Horse Chestnut trees in Meyrick Park, Bournemouth are changing colour and ready to give up their crop of “conkers”!

The heatwave has certainly triggered a flurry of activity, not least concerning wasps. The calls for bee swarms are still happening, but general wasp activity has really accelerated, with many properties reporting unwanted invasions from wasps. It does not matter if the property is a house, bungalow, shed or even a caravan. A wasps nest can be found wherever the conditions are suitable for the queen wasp to set up home and build the initial nest. If a ground location is chosen, then once the nest goes into full production, a lot of soil excavation will take place to keep track of the...

It is that time of the year again for the wasps to suddenly appear on the scene and cause fear and possible panic.

The wasp sting can produce swelling, which in turn can cause respiratory obstruction, or even worse, anaphylactic shock. The wasp nest is constructed by a queen wasp and can be found just about anywhere, from in the ground, in bushes or...
