There are many different species of bees in the UK from masonry bees and bumble bees to honey bees, some providing honey, some not, some can sting whilst others cannot, but they all have one thing in common and that is that they are viewed with affection worldwide.
Bumble bees occasionally set up colonies in cavity walls, and whilst this may seem undesirable, they should be left alone as this nest will only last for one summer.
Bumble bees are social insects where the Queen and her worker daughters will live in this colony throughout the summer until her fertile females and males leave the nest to mate. These ‘New Queens’ for the following year will find somewhere to hibernate over the winter months before starting their own colonies. The Queen and the workers from the original nest will simply die off in the autumn leaving the nest to decay naturally.
How best to manage bees?
Certain bee species have been declining at an alarming rate in recent years, and as they play such an important role within our environment they should ideally be left alone as they will not sting humans if left undisturbed.

Gary and Wendi at Excel Pest Management recently attended my ageing Auntie’s flat to investigate mice on the premises. Their response time and service was second to none and they went the ‘extra mile’ to ensure that my Auntie can now sleep peacefully at night without having to worry about vermin.
I would certainly recommend Excel Pest Control to get rid of your pests.
Gary is a true professional, I have hired him on a good few occasions and cannot fault his work ethic, knowledge and passion.
He is trustworthy, consistent and reliable and I would recommend Gary and Excel pest management to all.

Gary has an excellent professional approach to his work, from initial survey and quotation, through to delivering ‘what it says on the tin’ – always with a friendly yet committed customer focus.
Attaining accreditation within the first year probably says it all and it is a pleasure doing business with him.

Friendly, cheap and speedy service. Came out the same day as I rang with no extra cost. Would truly recommend to anybody.
We had a problem with wasps nests which was resolved very quickly. Excellent service provided, punctual, reliable and thorough. If we have any further problems we now know who to contact.
We just moved into a property and realised the place was riddled in fleas. We called excel pest management and he reacted fast. He was with us within 24h of the phone call. He came in done the first spray which did the job then 2 weeks later done the second lot of spraying to be sure all eggs and fleas have gone. Really pleased with his service and would recommend to anyone with the same problem. Fantastic job done!!
