Insect Control in Yorkshire

Insect infestations have the potential to cause anxiety in the domestic environment, as well as having serious implications for businesses if the issue is not resolved.

AgriPest Management carry out treatments to all insects including:

  • Wasps
  • Bees
  • Bed Bugs
  • Fleas
  • Ants
  • Flies
  • Carpet Beetle
  • Clothes Moth
  • Cockroaches
  • Silverfish
  • Storage Product Insects
  • Textile Pests and Mosquitoes

There are two common pest species of wasp in the UK; the Common Wasp and the German Wasp. The Queen will construct a small nest from wood pulp and raise a few workers. These workers will go on to continue constructing the wasp nest and care for the next batch of wasps that emerge. By September, generally, the nest is at the limit of its size and capacity – with up to or in excess of 10,000 workers. In Autumn, the Queen mates and then leaves the nest to hibernate over Winter in tree bark or in buildings and emerge in spring to create a new nest. The rest of the colony will die after the Queen has left. This is the time that most people are stung or wasps become a major problem. With no Queen, no pheromones and no purpose, they are likely to sting people for no apparent reason. Once the wasp nest has expired, it will not be re-used the following year.

How can wasps effect you?

  • If a nest is disturbed or broken there will be a lot of angry wasps loose around your home or business.
  • This can lead to staff or home occupants being stung.
  • Large amounts of wasp activity can be distressing to children or those allergic to the sting.
  • Dead and dying wasps are unhygienic and can cause contamination of stock and food preparation.

How AgriPest can help

Getting rid of wasps and their nests should be a job for experts. We have often been asked to attend homes and places of work to treat wasp nests, only to find someone has had a go at doing it themselves, resulting in a lot of aggressive wasps flying around.

Our highly trained and experienced technicians will carry out a full assessment before treating the nest, to make sure there is minimum risk to staff, customers or home occupants. All of our technicians use specialist safety equipment ensuring a fast, effective and professional service.

Ants are highly organised social insects. It is the foraging worker ants that invade buildings in search of food. These are from 3 to 5mm in length and are attracted to sweet foodstuffs which they take back to the nest to feed to the larvae and queen.

 The so-called ants’ eggs sold for aquaria fish are actually the pupae. Flying ants are the reproductive males and females. These mating ants are winged and have a nuptial swarming flight during only a few days in July or August. Mating takes place in the air and the female then seeks out a nest site where she stays for the Winter, laying eggs the following Spring in order to start up a new colony.

AgriPest Management offers not only rapid extermination of ants but also advises on how to ‘Ant-proof’ your premises so that infestations do not reoccur.
