A late wasp queen looking to make a nest. Queen wasps are noticably larger than other wasps. They normally start making their nests around mid April. They are probably late due to the cold March we had.
This pigeon has built its nest in this house's roof space. It lands on the boiler outlet pipe before jumping in to a gap created by a missing brick. Multiple pigeons have started to enter the roof. The customer simply wants the hole plugging, bird proofing spikes putting on to the outlet pipe and the nest removing from the roof. We will also spray the area where the nest was with Ornikil a bird specific disinfectant. Job done.

Baiting rat burrows is one of the best ways to get a rat to feed on bait. This picture shows two rat burrows with bait bags pushed in to them. The burrows are on an embankment on a ditch. It is an ideal place for them as the ditch drains water, the hawthorn hedge provides protection and they are able to burrow in and around the roots. In this case the burrow system is just opposite a pig pen which is the rats main food.

Its been a few days since I last blogged. Not for lack of work or pictures, the thing keeping me from blogging is trying to straighten out the new website. Working on the computer after doing a days proper work is always unpleasant but now I've got as much in place as I need to for now so the blogging will continue.
The old website has been great and its always done well enough but has always had the slight school project look about it.
Anyhow over the past few weeks I've linked to the new site a few times on my Facebook blog and have re designed the old websites home page so it redirects to it so its not exactly new news but for those who haven't seen it please have a look and leave a comment if you see anything you'd improve. There are things I have still to do on it but you'll get the general picture.
I'll continue to update the old site both to keep its information current and to keep its galleries and blogs full.
A spider beetle found in a customers house. It was actually something the customer was quite happy about. Her and her husband thought they had bedbugs. They had bagged all their bedding and pillows and had booked themselves in to a hotel for the night so the bedbug treatment could be carried out. The spider beetles are in the house due to birds nests in the roof space. The beetles eat the organic debris in the nest. They find their way in to the house through gaps around the ceiling lights. In this case the infestation was quite light. An insecticidal spray solved their problem.

Mouse damaged chocolates can cost shop owners a huge amount even when there is relatively few mice in the shop. In this case mice have removed just the walnuts from these Walnut Whips. The rest of the box is not allowed to be used when it becomes contaminated like this. With over 50 individual sweets in this box its quite a loss for a few nights mouse food.
