In our region we now have a brand-new and somewhat belligerent bumble bee, the Tree Bumblebee (Bombus hypnorum). Though we strive not to cause harm to bees, this variety is hazardous when nesting low down in the garden or on the body of your premises. We do not normally like to destroy bees but this bee is risky when nested in the proximity of people, especially youngsters and pets. It is an easy bee to recognise with its orange thorax and white hindquarters and if you suspect that you might have got a nest of these bees we recommend calling us immediately. Do not get too close! For assistance with distinguishing this variety pay a visit to our wasps and bees site.
We do all we can to help bees wherever possible and we ourselves now maintain a hive of honeybees and aim to be able to provide honey for sale in the autumn Please check out our Harrier Honey dedicated webpage for more information.

Most common unwanted pests
Our cost for handling wasps’ nests is preset at £49.50 and we will never ask you for more unless access equipment such as scaffolding or a cherry-picker is necessary to get to the nest. Please note that operating at height legislation is very restrictive these days so please advise us if the nest is any higher than the gutters of a standard residential premises.
However, once we get much beyond mid-September we are coping with what we call a late season wasps’ nest, and this may need added work to make things safe and secure for you. Please click the link for broad details.
On almost all occasions we are not going to even have to employ ladders as we use long extension poles which are less dangerous for our agents, yourself and your household.
Our operative will arrive by scheduled appointment, inject a small amount of powder pesticide into the entry to the wasps’ nest and the returning wasps will transport it into the core of the nest and within just an hour all the wasps will be dead.
Providing we can get to the wasps’ nest from the exterior of the premises you do not even have got to wait in. Our specialist wasp control website offers a PayPal button for you to use. We will then get rid of the nest while you are out, but kindly phone us to tell us that you have paid online and leave unlocked any gates we may need to go through.
If you know of any factors which you are aware of which could affect the treatment such as the presence of bats then be sure to inform us of that over the phone.
The prevalent pest of the day is bed bugs, they are a world-wide pandemic and extremely easily transferred to your home.
There is a tremendous amount of misunderstanding between bed bugs and dust mites. Every bed has tiny, invisible to the naked eye dust mites, bed bugs are wholly a separate thing.
Bed bugs are easily seen and resemble an apple pip, particularly when fully grown and recently fed. They’re not indications of bad hygiene, all they desire is a blood feed every few days – your blood!
You can transfer bed bugs to your property just by staying in an infested hotel or even by being seated next to the wrong person on the bus.
Once well established in your household they will speedily disperse to any attached premises and in a very bad infestation it is quite possible to sustain upwards of 500 bites a night.
Whatever you do PLEASE do not try and deal with the infestation your self, I guarantee that you will simply just make matters a lot worse. If you suspect that you may have a bed bug problem then please phone us for information before you do anything at all.
Before you undergo any actions at all, most certainly do not purchase a new bed or bedding because it is going to be infested by bed bugs on the very first night.
Ants are a leading pest of the spring and summer months. So many people will know the horror of flying ants emerging into their houses and dislike the summer for this reason.
However, we are nowadays a great deal better prepared to contend with ants than we were even a handful of of years ago. We can now with assurance offer a 3 year guarantee on ant work in nearly all instances.
The process is absolutely safe for small children and family pets.
Do not spend money on ant dusts and ant gels when we can get rid of your indoors ant infestation at a sensible price and offer you a renewable 3 year guarantee in the bargain.
Flea problems are on the increase again, even with people who on a regular basis treat their dogs and cats.
This presents itself to be simply because populations of cat fleas and dog fleas in the Knutsford & Lymm Pest Control region of operation are growing to be resistant to the active ingredients in the flea control products and solutions readily available to the general public.
The growth of these fleas is also caused by the increase in the presence of urban foxes in many locations.
It is essential to take care of a cat flea or a dog flea problem as they can result in significant problems, especially for small children as they can carry and transmit tapeworms.
