We now have the Tree Bumblebee (Bombus hypnorum) in the North West. Although we try not to harm bees, this species is dangerous when nesting low down in your garden or on the body of your house.
It is very defensive of its nest which will often be found in bird boxes and sensitive to any movement in the vicinity of the nest.
Its distinctive markings, the orange thorax and white tail, make it easy to spot and we recommend calling a pest controller immediately you think you may have a nest. Do not get too close! For help with identifying this species visit our wasps and bees site.
If the tree bumblebee nest is above gutter height we would recommend that you leave it alone as it is unlikely to cause you any problems. The tree bumblebee appears very early on in the summer, from April onwards and many people suspect that they have a wasps’ nest. Please believe us when we say you cannot have an active wasps’ nest before June at the earliest in our area.
If you are calling regarding a wasps’ nest in spring between April – July please visit our Seasonal Chart Page to ensure that you actually do have a wasps’ nest, not harmless solitary bees. This may save you a callout charge.
We are lovers of bees and wildlife generally and in 2013 in order to try and help honeybees we became beekeepers ourselves and hope to be providing honey to our customers in the summer. Please visit out our Harrier Honey page for full details.

Most common pests
Harrier Pest Control destroy wasps’ nests in the summer months for a fixed fee of just £35.00, we will never ask for more to destroy a wasps’ nest unless specialist access equipment such as a cherry-picker or scaffolding is needed to access the nest.
The only exception is in the case of a late season wasps’ nest, where an additional treatment to your loft may be necessary.
On most occasions we will not even need to use ladders as we use long extension lances which are safer for our operatives, yourself and your property.
Also, and more importantly do NOT attempt to close or block the nest entrance with mastic or mortar etc., you’ll drive the wasps into the house and when we arrive we need the entrance to be open so as to perform the treatment.
If you call us out to a nest where you have sealed the entrance we will charge you extra for the additional time it takes us to deal with the nest. On occasions when an entrance has been sealed or where you have attempted to deal with the nest yourself we reserve the right to charge you a call out fee without carrying out the treatment or to attempt the work with no guarantee given.
Our technician will come along by appointment, inject a small amount of powdered insecticide into the entrance to the wasps’ nest and the returning wasps will carry it into the heart of the nest and within an hour all the wasps will be dead.
Providing we can access the wasps’ nest from the outside of the house you do not even have to wait in. Our specialist wasp control website offers a PayPal button for you to use. We will then destroy the nest while you are out, but please telephone us to let us know that you have paid and leave open any gates we may need to go through.
If there are any issues which you are aware about which might affect the treatment such as the presence of bats then please make us aware of that over the phone.
Bed Bugs are rife in the Harrier Pest Control area of operation.
Many people confuse bed bugs with dust mites. Unlike dust mites which are relatively harmless, bed bugs are not found in every bed but only in the beds of those unlucky enough to become infested.
Bed bugs are about the size and shape of an apple pip and dine exclusively on blood, your blood!
You can transfer bed bugs to your home simply by staying in an infested hotel or even by sitting next to the wrong person on the bus.
Once established in your home they will rapidly spread to any attached properties and in a severe infestation it is possible to sustain upwards of 500 bites per night.
They are not a pest which can be tackled by an amateur, you will need professional help or you will make matters worse. If you even suspect that you may have bed bugs then talk to Harrier Pest Control
Before you take any steps at all, certainly do not buy a new bed or mattress as it will be infested by bed bugs on the first night.
Ants are a major pest of the spring and summer months. Many people will know the horror of flying ants emerging into their houses and dread the summer for this reason.
Pest control technology has developed in leaps and bounds over the last few years and Harrier Pest Control now have the means to eliminate ant infestations indoors, and in most cases give a 3 year guarantee on the work.
The treatment is perfectly safe for children and pets.
Don’t spend pounds on ant powders and ant gels when we can cure your indoor ant infestation at a reasonable price and offer you a renewable 3 year guarantee in the bargain.
Cat Fleas and Dog Fleas are becoming more troublesome in the Harrier Pest Control area and we are getting more and more calls from people who regularly treat their pets and yet are still getting flea infestations in their homes.
This may be that populations of cat fleas and dog fleas are becoming resistant to the active ingredients in the flea treatments available to the general public.
It is important to deal with a flea infestation promptly, especially in the presence of toddlers as fleas are intermediate hosts of tapeworm.
