As the summer starts to fade and we move into autumn thoughts turn away from pests of the summer such as wasps and turn into more winter issues with rats and mice featuring quite highly. Of course rats and mice can and do occur at any time of year, but there seems to be a greater association with them as the nights get longer and days colder.
We are now in the swing of full summer as this is ripe time for flies. We have all been plagued by the nuisances that are flies at some point in our lives, but did you know that flies are more than just an annoyance? They can pose quite a serious health risk and in our latest blog post we will look more closely at this.
This is now our fifth post on the subject of bees and wasps and we hope you have found the series useful, informative and helpful. In this our final posting on the subject, we take a look at the life cycle of wasps and offer an insight into how these insects behave.
Moths are a common problem in many households. They are quite small, and can seem to enter through the most insignificant of spaces. This makes controlling them difficult. There is reported to be over a million homes in the UK which suffer from some kind of moth infestation, and when you think about that number, that really does give the scale of the problem.
There is no doubt about it that one of the most hated things about bees and wasps and what leads us humans to dislike them so much is their defensive sting. At best stings can be uncomfortable and unpleasant while at worst they can be life threatening and (especially in the case of multiple stings) fatal. In this article, we consider stings from these insects.
