Once again the wasp season has begun, with our phone lines slowly starting to heat up with customers requesting visits from us to remove the troublesome pests!
How do you identify whether or not you have a wasp nest?
Well unless you can visually see the paper like nest that most wasp species build then you need to look for an entry point and the usual build up of wasp activity as they gather around the nest area. Check along gutter lines and look across you roofline. Air vents and under cladding are also common spots.
At the start of the season you may notice only several wasps entering and exiting over a few minuets. By mid to late season you will see high numbers flying around the entry point.
Wasps also become aggressive later in the season, so take care not to get too close to a wasp nest or you may find yourself getting stung!
Wasps also become more aggressive later in the season, so take care not to get too close to a wasp nest or you may find yourself getting stung! And remember an individual wasp can sting repeatedly, unlike honey bees who can only sting once.
If you discover you have a wasps nest or multiple nests that require a treatment, feel free to get in contact with us and book a visit with a qualified and insured wasp specialist.

We have recently completed a job for a tricky rodent clearance, whereby we were required to install a rat drain blocker. It’s a one way non- return flap, which is installed into the furthest drain outlet on your site perimeter to stop rats from entering your property through the drain systems.
The rat flap idea was first thought up by a Danish company. In Denmark, local councils are required by law to fit these units as standard into all new build housing.
They are a great way of containing rodent infestations into an area where you can control them by sewer baiting. A safe and secure way of dealing with a rat population.
So why haven’t we caught on to this idea in the UK yet!?
A recent report by a large London based pest control company, has seen a dramatic increase of rodent infestations gaining access to properties via the drain systems over the last 10 years.
This has lead to a large percentage of their current work (around 70%) being solely rat flap installation. It is fast becoming a popular fix or even a requirement throughout the industry, especially in urban areas.
At Bentley Environmental we are slightly more rural based, so we haven’t had a huge demand for these units yet!
But that’s mainly because a lot of the properties we look after have their own sewage system in place, also known as cesspits. So unless rats dig into the drain pipes, the rat flaps aren’t required.
All pest technicians should carry out checks to the drain systems when carrying out a site survey for rodents. Sometimes we are called in after another company have failed to remove a rodent problem and the customer asks why we’re checking the drains…
If you’re experiencing problems with rodents or would like to just be proactive and have peace of mind that your drains are secure. Please reach out to us and book a site visit or for more information on rat drain flaps at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our contact page
Did you know that Median Wasps like to build their nests in shrubs and trees. They are a European wasp that arrived in the UK back in the 1980’s and are slowly spreading across the country from the south up.
We’re finding we attend more jobs for these species of wasp each year.
They tend to be more aggressive than our own native yellow jacket wasp, they’re also slightly larger and have more black than yellow on them.
