What is the best wasp nest

9 Sep

Bayer is seeking the UK’s most impressive wasp nest and they are currently running a competition for pest controllers to send in their entries.

At Abate Pest Management we have treated lots of wasp nests over the past few weeks for both domestic and commercial clients, but most of these nests are in roof trusses and lofts, nothing like these!

One entry is a nest that over the course of a year had clung to the hem of a shirt in a wardrobe.

Plus a  nest that was built on the duvet of a bed in a terraced house. According to Andrew the nest only took a few weeks to grow to this size after the resident moved out.

Eight days of Christmas

20 Dec

A cheery rhyme for Christmas; just for you!

 

On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me, a giant rat sitting in the middle of our pantry

On the second day of Christmas my true love sent to me, 2 blind moles

On the third day of Christmas my true love sent to me, 3 wasp nests

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, 4 hungry squirrels

On the fifth day of Christmas my true love sent to me, 5 grey pigeons

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love sent to me a nice bout of Weils disease

On the seventh day of Christmas my true love sent to me, a very dicky tummy

On the eighth day of Christmas my true love sent to me 8 tons of guano

 

Ok, enough is enough!  9-12 will only get very messy and after all, it is Christmas and the season of good will.

On a serious note though, with all of the extra food and then the inevitable left-over food over the Christmas period, make sure that it is wrapped and disposed of properly as rats will be attracted to it, particularly in sheds and outhouses.  If you do find an unwanted furry friend sitting on your doorstep, we are open over the Christmas period, so just give us a call, although, I hope you won’t have to!

Have a very merry Christmas and happy new year to you all.
