Halloween is the time for ghosts, ghouls and other scary monsters! As the days grow shorter and the nights grow longer, strange things can be heard or seen that may send a tingle down the spine! Not everything may be an apparition, some things will be real and could have a scary and possibly, an expensive result. As the temperatures drop, rodents and insects will be looking for warm, secure lodging and properties are the obvious choice, with many at risk from invasion. Now is the time to check for any defects in buildings, fill any holes or cracks, replace missing tiles or seal holes around...

After the tremendous heat and vast quantities of sunshine during the past summer, autumn has finally arrived with lower temperatures and rain. Now is the time to think about winter and even cooler temperatures and this is exactly what the majority of pests will be doing. Squirrels are already invading many properties to seek out dry, safe areas to escape cooler weather. Other rodents, including rats and mice have already invaded many areas and with previous conditions during the summer and large amounts of available food, numbers are at very high levels. This can only lead to more properties...

The latin name is Talpa europaea and they are mammals. The male mole is referred to as a “boar”, the female is a “sow” and a group is called a “labour”. Moles are capable of digging through up to 15 metres of soil an hour! Most of a moles’ life is spent underground. The first signs of mole activity or mole digging are molehills, which is the excavated soil from their tunnels. The mole has poor eyesight and no ears, relying on extreme senses of smell and touch. Moles are carnivores. The saliva of a mole can paralyze worms! Continuous tunnelling by moles can undermine plant roots causing...

We are now over half way through the summer and with record breaking temperatures and even flooding, the environment is certainly changing. Already this year we have seen vast numbers of flying ants on several occasions, with numbers so large that great swarms even appeared on weather radars giving the false impressions of rain clouds! Birds were in the news when licences for culling were suspended (and indeed are still in doubt) giving the chance for some species numbers to swell rapidly, which could have a dramatic effect in the future. Nesting birds can also cause problems, not only with...

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 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...
