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.

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...

It is that time of the year again for the wasps to suddenly appear on the scene and cause fear and possible panic. They are definitely a nuisance pest and are often a threat to health and wellbeing, with many people having a phobia towards wasps. A wasp sting is certainly painful and in some cases, can be fatal, as the wasp is capable of multiple stings. 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...

Across the south of Dorset from Bournemouth to Christchurch and Poole to Verwood and not forgetting nearby Ringwood, wasps are very busy building their distinctive...
