Generally, wasps, hornets and bees do not pose a major threat to your property. However, their stings are nasty, many people are allergic to them (anaphylactic shock), and even those that aren't can suffer reactions to large quantities of stings.
Bee and wasp nests are created using a pulp formed from wood, bark and saliva, and are generally found in the eaves of a house or in trees in the garden.
At Essex Green Shoots, we never kill bees unless it is absolutely necessary. We safely remove a nest and relocate it within a hive in order that the bee population is preserved. We do this by locating and removing the queen bee - the others then follow.
Insect Species Identification
Common species of bee in the UK include masonry bees, bumble bees and honey bees, with the bumble bees being by far the largest. Honey bees and bumble bees live in colonies with a sophisticated social hierarchy, and nests are most likely to be from these species. The common wasp and German wasp are the most prevalent species in the UK, and the ones most likely to venture indoors.
