Wasp Extermination & Control

Bee Control

Complete Pest Control provide a professional bee control service for business customers & individuals alike, however, we view bees as being an integral part of our environment and as such will only treat colonies if we consider they pose a significant risk to people. Many of our bee species are dying out at a rapid rate and if this continues it will have a devastating effect on our ecology.

Complete Pest Control believe wherever possible that bees and their nests should be left undisturbed and all possible solutions including relocation should be considered before destruction of their habitat. .
There are four main groups of bee you are likely to encounter in the UK which are:-

Honey Bee

Unfortunately, these are now mostly kept by Bee Keepers, as their wild numbers have declined rapidly over recent years. However, if you are lucky enough to spot these in their natural habitat their nests can be found in chimneys, lofts and roof spaces and inside wall cavities. They are mostly black in colour, furry and a similar in size to wasps and is a species known to swarm.

Bumble Bee

Bumbles bee is quite large compared to a honey bee, are furrier and have a dark coloured body with gold stripes on their tails. Nest locations include holes in the ground, wall cavities under sheds or outbuildings and compost heaps.

Solitary Bee

Solitary bees are a non-aggresive species of bee and visually similar to the honey bee, although they nest on their own, solitary bees can often be found near other solitary bee nests in groups called villages. Some species tunnel in soil, cement in old houses or use air bricks to nest in.

Masonry Bee

Masonry bees also known as mortar bees, nest in the naturally occurring holes & crevices in brickwork. Chances are you will these on south facing walls as they favour locations that receive sunlight most of the day. The masonry bee is a non-aggressive species and highly unlikely to attack and favour the warmer climate of Southern England

Disease & Damage

Bees do not pose a significant risk as disease carriers, however, as with any insect, you never know where they have been foraging - the most serious danger bees pose is via their sting which apart from being very painful can cause anaphylactic shock in people who have an allergic reaction to bee venom.

Bee Prevention

Preventing an infestation of bees is usually very difficult unless you know where the nest is, all humane methods of bee control are considered before destroying the nest and unfortunately, some species, notably the honeybee, are in steep decline.
