For those people lucky enough to have a garden, now is the time to experience some unusual occurrences that only happen this time of the year, but the conditions have to be just right! If you have sandy based soil and short grass with a sunny outlook, you may notice small holes appearing in the ground and insects busily excavating. It may be a couple, or hundreds depending on the location and the culprit is the Ivy Bee. The Ivy Bee is a solitary bee and is the last to emerge in the year, normally mid to late September until November. Once mated, the female digs a burrow in loose sand or...

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...

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...

With the Autumn equinox now with us, the days will get shorter and the nights longer and life in general tends to slow down a little? Not so for animals and insects, the rush in on to feed up before possible hibernation, or to find suitable homes ready for the inevitable cold weather that will eventually arrive in the winter. Rodents including rats, mice and squirrels are already testing new locations or even returning to areas previously used for nesting. To the owner of the properties involved this can be the start of possible distress and unexpected costs if left to develop. Insects...

DOES HOUSE INSURANCE COVER RODENT OR VERMIN DAMAGE?

How often do we really read the small print and fully understand the consequences? With all the austerity measures currently being used to save money, insurance is one of the many areas we look to save money on and the results could end up costing thousands of pounds. Household insurance policies that actually cover rodent damage in their wording are far and few between. Many have the following phrases included: “We will not cover: damage caused by wear and tear, settlement and shrinkage, vermin, insects, fungus, weather conditions, or any damage which happens gradually.” Or: “We will not...
