Although I didn't use Andy for treatment, he provided me with good advice and was very helpful. He clearly cares about his customers and wants to help!

I called on a Friday after noticing what turned out to be a wasp nest in our facia board. Andy managed to make space to come over the following evening which I was extremely grateful of. Once he got here he thoroughly inspected the nest to make sure it wasn't Ivy bees and once satisfied he quickly went to work. The nest has now been destroyed and he even offered advice on how to minimise the risk of this happening again. Andy was very friendly and professional throughout the process and even offered to come back for free the following day if the nest wasn't completely cleared after treatment. I would thoroughly recommend his services and will be calling again if we have any further problems in the future.

Andy is a great guy, really professional and dilligent and got the job done with as minimal impact on the surrounding area as possible. Also provided environmental advice to prevent insecticide affecting anything else and ensuring that it does not go beyond the targeted area where it was applied. Couldn't ask for better service. Great job!

Andy was brilliant! He took the time and care to inspect the whole property to better understand the source of the problem. He understands pest behaviour and tailors treatments accordingly. Great communication, friendly service and competitive pricing.

How To Tell The Difference Between Wasps And Bees

Bee Behaviour

Bees will tend to be found on plants flowers or hovering around water areas or close to their nest or hive. They rarely bother humans unless we are around the plants they are on or in their flight path for some reason.

Bees pollinate plants which allows plants to breed. This is important for food production as well as trees and all other plants survival. It is important not to kill bees unless it is absolutely necessary.

Bee Appearance

Honey Bees which are often mistaken for wasps have darker yellow and dark brown stripes compared to a wasp.

Honey bees have a more rounded appearance and the whole of the body of the insect is roughly the same width from end to end.

Wasp Behaviour

Common Wasps are quite often found nesting around humans in houses or outbuildings and usually make themselves known from June through to late September.

They are attracted to sweet items like jam or fruits and can often be found around bins. They can harass people who are eating or drinking outside or may enter kitchens to look for food sources.

Wasp Appearance

Wasps have much brighter markings than bees they are yellow and black stripes that are quite thin in comparison to those of the honey bee.

The shape of a wasp is much more pointy than a bee and wasps have a very pronounced waist.

From a distance a wasp will look more yellow than a bee.

Other Similar Insects

There are many types of both wasps and bees in the UK. Many types of wasps will not cause issues and bees should not be killed unless there is an immediate danger caused by their presence.

Bees should be dealt with by an experienced bee keeper who may be able to re home them.

Wasps are best dealt with by a professional pest controller like AF Pest Control.
