Pest Control in London & Essex
Safeguarding Homes and Businesses from Pests
Bees, Wasps and Hornets are seasonal pests that are active in the UK between the months of April and October. Even though there are many species of these individual insects, it is the Common Wasp, Hornet and the Honey Bee, that are commonplace both within and the surrounding areas of a property.
They are fairly large for insects (bees and wasps being anywhere between a 1/3rd of an adult's little finger whilst hornets are somewhere near 2/3rds) and tend to reside in locations where warmth, humidity and safe shelter are present (such as loft spaces, air-bricks, eaves, cavity spaces, soil, tree root systems and many more). All three species can be found foraging for food externally though it's the wasps and hornets that can be found foraging within a premises for food and materials, and are very likely to cause structural damage to wooden materials.
Unless a beehive is visible or activity indicates the presence of a hive (in which case we should should be contacted), the presence of bees is not something to concerned over as they are the least aggressive of the of the three species in the UK and should be left to pollinate flowers and plants. On the other hand wasps and hornets are pests to be concerned over as they both bite and sting especially with the wasp showing extreme aggression if disturbed or threatened. All being said, all three are capable of causing severe harm via their stingers causing anaphylactic shock to hypersensitive individuals. They are also capable of reproducing in the 1000s which makes them a considerable threat to occupants making their eradication extremely urgent.
