Efficient Hornet Pest Control and Bee Nest Relocation Services

In September 2018, an Asian hornet sighting was confirmed near Fowey in Cornwall; the presence of this predator to bees is a considerable threat to their population. Whilst the Fowey area remains a focus of the National Bee Unit’s attention, everyone can help to prevent a significant Asian hornet related population decrease by being vigilant.

Asian hornets arrived in France in 2004 and were first spotted in the British Isles in 2016.Earlier this year, an Asian hornet was discovered in Lancashire.

Asian Hornet Pest Control Is Vital

“While the Asian Hornet poses no greater risk to human health than a bee, we recognise the damage they can cause to honey bee colonies. “Nicola Spence, from DEFRA, told the BBC. “It is an invasive species providing a major new emerging threat to our beleaguered pollinator populations.”

Asian hornets feed by hovering in front of bee hives, when a bee is sighted the hornet bites its head off and then eats the rest. This is called hawking. It’s estimated that a single Asian hornet can eat 50 bees in one day.

Across the region, please be aware of any species of hornet activities; they are larger than wasps. Whether you suspect that a wasp or hornet may be a threat or not, contact hornet pest control specialists like Pest Control Berkshire immediately. They have the training, experience and the latest data from DEFRA to act correctly to minimise risks and ramifications.

The Asian hornet is often confused with the Giant Asian hornet, also known as the Japanese hornet; professional evaluation is imperative.

Seek out pest control near me. Act with resolution to protect the bee population. Whilst a pest controller may charge a fee for treatment or relocation of an infestation, the alternative is hugely worrying.

Bees and wasps in the ecosystem

Although you may find bees and wasps a nuisance, chasing after you, your food or drinks throughout the warmer months, without them the ecosystem and therefore the food chain, would be at great risk. Every fruit and vegetable in the diverse range we enjoy requires pollination from bees or the wind.

To replicate our flying friends’ activities would cost billions globally each year.  Varieties of a fruit or vegetable might disappear if cross pollination was to be compromised. It’s too great a risk and we shouldn’t allow this to occur by being passive about an Asian hornet sighting a few hundred miles away.

Bee nest relocation, not eradication

If you spot an Asian hornet, want to ensure your bees are safe or you discover a nest on or around your property, wasp and bee nest relocation is the normal course of action rather than eradication. Please entrust this task to professionals who know exactly how wasp and bee nest relocation should be achieved, without being stung numerous times.
