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”! A useful by-product, of which, is used against spiders to keep them out of our homes, because now is the time for these and many other creatures to start planning for the colder weather. Many eyes will be focused on our warm, centrally heated properties, as a place to set up home and spend the next 5 or 6 months or even longer. It is not just the older properties in places such as Parkstone, Southbourne or Westbourne...

Go into many built up towns and you will see ever increasing numbers of pigeons either roosting or feeding. Pigeons are very good at surviving on hand-outs from man, be it food or shelter. Bournemouth, Poole, Boscombe, Winton, Christchurch, Ringwood, Verwood and other towns locally have all become victims of the feral pigeon and evidence of their presence can be easily seen on ledges, roofs and even on the ground, where they leave behind large amounts of droppings. It is these droppings that can harbour nasty surprises. Here are just a few: Histoplasmosis Histoplasmosis is a disease caused...

Of all the parasites found on our pets, fleas are the most common and apart from being unpleasant, they can cause harm, both to you and your pets. They are not confined to certain properties. It could be a flat in Bournemouth or Boscombe or a house in Charminster or Southbourne or a bungalow in Poole, Verwood or Christchurch. In some cases the owner or tenant may not even have a pet, but the previous occupier might have kept a pet and left behind a nasty surprise. The life cycle of a flea takes 2-3 weeks in a warm environment   (eg a house with central heating) and  consists of four main...

It does not matter if you live in the countryside or a local town or built up area, sooner or later you will come into contact with a squirrel! Squirrels have become part of everyday life and can be found in many local gardens, parks, woodlands, towns and even industrial estates. The local area has an effect on squirrel numbers mainly because of food supplies and suitable nesting locations. In wooded areas squirrels will live in Dreys that are located high up in trees and constructed of twigs and sticks lined with leaves and fur. In urban areas there may be a lack of trees, but the squirrels...

Grey Squirrels were originally introduced from America during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century and since then have spread widely and today they are a well-known feature of parks, gardens and woodland especially in Poole, Bournemouth and surrounding areas, producing different reactions amongst the general public and while many people enjoy seeing and feeding them, others see them as nothing more than tree rats. They are certainly very entertaining by their very nature of being extremely agile, but they remain a serious pest, not only to forestry but to homes and buildings too,...
