Maidenhead Pest Control
We believe that we have a duty to be ethical in all our pest control treatments and how we deal with wasps, hornets and bee's should be the same.
We will recommend that honey bee's are relocated if found in a building void such as chimney; legislation requires us to seal the treated area to prevent wild bee's from becoming contaminated if in case they stumbled on the left over honeycomb.
Most chimneys are in use; it maybe a gas flue and therefore impossible to seal. Specialist companies exist to open up, remove the bee's and then make good and that is what we recommend for honey bee's.
Mining bee's emerge in late summer; in the event that they are in a wall then the autumn is the time for repointing and making repairs.
Mining bee's emerge from well drained sandy soils in late August, often in huge numbers and can be frightening for those that believe them to be wasps.
Small, furry and clumping together in groups this is the nuptial flight and is a spectacle that should be enjoyed.
