Well at this time of year that is what we should be doing…..wasp busting in Bolton and the rest of Lancashire and the North West! Seems this years its been as much a case of flea busters! Plenty of call outs from all areas with fleas needing attention. If your suffering from flea infestations then take a quick look at my flea section. I would say there has been at least 1 inquiry a day asking for advice about fleas.
Wasp Control Calls
Wasp calls have been coming in steadily though and we have been kept busy. Surprisingly though there has been some quite busy nests about for this time of year there has also been some really small ones as well that don’t seem to be particularly old, I guess its part of the issue I have discussed on here before that there just does not seem to be a set pattern anymore.
Active Wasps Nests
The picture above wasp taken a riding stables located in Bolton. It was quite a busy nest, though not a massive one. It certainly would of been a good size in October! I broke the wasps nest open to show the owner of the stables and even I never fail to be amazed by how intricate the inside of a wasps nest is, all made from chewed wood and wasp spit! I recently saw some wasps drinking some spilled beer in a beer garden (even pest controllers deserve a quick pint now and again!) so it looks like some wasps are now starting sweet feeding…again this is early.
