25% Of All Bee Types Present In The U.k Are Endangered

Some facts about your bee infestation

  1. Bees aren’t protected by law and can be treated, but this should be the last resort once all other avenues are exhausted. If the location of the nest is dangerous or removal isn’t possible, then eradication may be the only viable option.
  2. A bee infestation can cause alarm and distress but it’s important to remember that they do not normally attack humans unless provoked. Instead of destroying any nests, it may be possible to relocate them somewhere suitable as bees are great pollinators and help many plants survive.
  3. If you’ve got a bees nest in your premises, then you can probably see them entering through holes in the ground or near your walls/ roof area. Different types tend to nest in variable areas. Bees can be a problem, especially when they nest inside your home. lofts/attics are common places that nests can be found so it’s worth checking these areas as they are often forgotten.
  4. We are in favour of bees, particularly the honey bee species as new studies have shown that the honey produced by bees is more beneficial for our health than some antibiotics. Honey is known as one of nature’s ‘superfoods’ and it’s important that honey production is protected and sustained.
  5. It’s very important to remember that honeycomb is a source of food for humans. The honeycomb can get contaminated by insecticides or pesticides which can have devastating consequences. Other bees will steal the contaminated honey and ingest, ultimately killing them, or fly back to there nest poisoning other members of their colony.
  6. The Health and Safety Executive’s Wildlife Incident refers to bees as “beneficial invertebrates that should be protected where possible” further stressing the need for bee preservation and protection.

Signs of a bees nest

A queen bee can lay approximately 2,000 eggs in just one day and around 3 weeks later, you have mature adults. This can cause their numbers to spike out of control quite quickly so swift action is recommended for this reason.

As mentioned above, beehive removal services are recommended instead of extermination as relocating would preserve them. They are vital sources for pollination and we rely on them for a wide range of our foods.

  1. Excessive bees gathering
  2. Swarms in one area
  3. Noises coming through walls and ceilings
  4. Active nests
  5. Dark patches caused by honey
  6. Spotting them inside frequently

The Difference Between Bees, Wasps, And Hornets

Wasps and hornets have a similar appearance to bees and it’s important to know what type of species you are dealing with. Wasps and hornets have more predatory characteristics and the chances of getting stung is alot higher than bees.

Wasps aren’t as large as bees; they have thinner heads with a black and yellow coloured jacket. Hornets are larger in size than both wasps and bees, measuring upto 4cm in length. Their patterns are yellow and dark brown and despite the fact that they are usually less aggressive than wasps, they can give a nasty sting.

Hornets tend to build nests in tree cavities although it’s not uncommon to find them inside buildings. Bees will have a hairy look, whereas wasps and hornets are smooth, shiny bodied.

Male Bees (Drones) Cannot Sting You

As the nest is completely removed from your premises, the problem is 100% solved. It is possible however for new nests to form which would then be classed as a separate nest and would require another treatment.

What Happens If The Wasps Come Back Or The Treatment Doesn’t Work Fully?

A world without bees would be troublesome and challenging considering that they are responsible for pollinating around a third of everything we eat. You should bare this in mind when considering lethal action that would permanently destroy a colony of bees.

How To Prevent A Bee Infestation

Bees can cause structural damage to your premises as they explore the exterior and interior of buildings. They exploit any gaps or vulnerabilities and this is why it’s important to identify and remove a nest as soon as possible. If relocation isn’t possible, then they need to be destroyed unfortunately.

Honey Bee Queens Can Live Up To 5 Years

Pest Proofing Your Home

You need to fill or seal any gaps or holes as if they cannot enter, then creating a nest would be hard for them. A pest control technican can perform this task for you and this will also keep others pests out such as: rats, mice, and squirrels, etc.

Prevent them coming indoors by keeping your areas clean as they are attracted to various things such as perfume fragrances, flowery sweet scents and sugary snacks/fruit.

Soft drinks are full of sugar which they love, as bees like to feed on sweet nectar. Any spillage/crumbs should be cleaned up immediately as they could entice bees into your home.

There’s not much you can do for bee control outside and you should allow nature to run its course. it’s best to leave them be as they are crucial for our eco system.

Extenuating circumstances may cause more concern and if anyone is allergic to bee venom in your home or business, be extra careful and DO NOT attempt or go near their nests.

Furthermore, never swat at a bee as this could send signals to the rest of the colony that there is a threat and to attack.

Once summer is finished, most bees will not return to an old nest the following season. Old nests can be left alone and removal isn’t nessacarily needed. This is a common scenario with bees and wasps as the nest can be in some very tricky, hard to see or reach areas, like inside wall cavities.

Been hearing scuttling for about a week until two nights ago when it sounded like someone was breaking into our kitchen. We went in to find a huge rat running around the surfaces. The next day we called James from pest cure and he was here within a few hours. During the visit he located the hole the rat was coming through & even saw the rat. By the time he left the kitchen was put back perfectly with two heavy duty traps hidden by the hole (non of those Amazon pieces of plastic). Although he said it could take a week, that night we heard a thwack and saw a dead rat in the morning. Called up James and he said he’d be here the same day to pick up the rat and fill the hole.For something that can make you feel so disgusting in a house, James sorted us perfectly and I highly recommend Pestcure. 10/10.

James is a very professional and knowledgeable pest controller. We are currently using his services for a bed bug related issue and he had been brilliant throughout the process, always able to fit in an appointment at convenient times. Would highly recommend him.

Unfortunately my issue with Mice in my flat was not resolved. James told me I had a “mild infestation” which I assumed would have been easy for a professional to deal with.Unfortunately, a bit more than a month after James’s initial visit, we still see mice in the flat.James was professional and explained that that there are holes in my walls which are large and difficult to reach which I understand and appreciate. Additionally, James was very responsive and came out to the flat a number of times to investigate the situation which is highly appreciated.However, I hired Pestcure to help me sort out an issue, paid their fee, but after a number of visits the issue continues to persist.Response to reply: I don’t understand why this is so disappointing to you. Imagine my disappointment then when I still see rodents in my flat after I paid your fee. I did mention that I appreciate the fact that you came out multiple times and I did mention that James tried his best. Also the claim that I did not close the holes is ridiculous and undermines your response. This is because I could not close the holes while James had traps and other rodenticides down there. I had to wait until James’s last visit before I took action with another professional.

Had bedbugs. Appointment was arranged quickly with Pestcure and James came for 3 treatments to get rid of our itchy friends.Was always easy to arrange the next step and James was always flexible and also let me know exactly when he was likely to arrive. James was always extremely pleasant and informative.Most importantly, the difference has been great and it’s been a fortnight (before the 3rd treatment) since we last saw a bedbug.

I can honestly say that pestcure is one of the best companies I have dealt with. My horses stable was plagued with rats and I was at my wits end! James knows his stuff 100% and I am so grateful that my horses food is no longer being eaten by rodents. Thank you so much Pestcure!

I would highly recommend Pest Cure. James provided excellent service and advice. He was very pragmatic and reassuring. The costs to deal with a mouse issue were very reasonable. The follow up was excellent and he went above and beyond to prevent further incursions by sealing up holes and grates. Overall, excellent, pleasant and professional service.

Highly recommend this company. James was so helpful and invested so much time with us to sort our problem. James’s was always on the other end of the phone to provide support and information and really cares about his clients to get the problem solved. Just want to say thank you to James as he helped me through a very challenging time!

Fantastic experience, James is v knowledgeable and has all the lot needed to remove any issues. Thinks about the client and is reasonably priced unlike other big big competitors who I feel don't have the same skill set. Would definitely re use although I'm hoping I won't need to!So my original review above was last year's issue, this year I had a larger rodent problem, called out James and yet again he's resolved the issue.Issues arose due to rodents living under an outbuilding. James' initial reaction was that it was a drainage issue. He was so thorough, put 2 x cameras down below the outbuilding, removed the decking himself and refused to leave the issue until it was resolved. He came out for 5 visits and after activity seen on camera for over 5 weeks, I've now been 11 days without an issue. This chap is the best in the business full stop, he's fitted drain valves (to stop the rat issue) and persistent rodent bait to eliminate the issue. If the issue comes back I know who to call, but I am at ease now because he has solved the source of the problem and has guided me on how to prevent it in the future. Absolutely brilliant experience and 5 stars really doesn't do his service justice.

James is an extremely professional and kind individual who explains what the problem is and gives his honest opinion. He follows up with good solutions and walks you through the how, what and why. Furthermore, he's helpful throughout the process and is happy to take any further questions or concerns. We used his services for rodent issues and the situation has been improving. Obviously some of it is down to construction issues, but he's more than willing to make you understand the underlying reasons as well. Would highly recommend his service.

How To Get Rid Of Bees

We do not recommend any home DIY methods as removing a nest can be very dangerous. It’s possible to go into anaphylactic shock just from 1 sting and although this is unlikely, there’s still that chance. Do not put yourself at risk!

It is advisable to call professionals; Pestcure Ltd supply bee keepers aswell as pest control technicians and are experts in dealing with bees.

Relocating is always our first choice, causing no harm and supporting our eco system. If this isn’t possible because of health and safety reasons, then eradication is the only option left.

All of our technicians are BPCA level 2 (British pest control association) certified, which is the industry’s recognised standard for pest control.

Technicians are both professional/affordable and will offer you the very best service possible whilst protecting our environment.
