We would like to welcome Roy Martin to the team at Old Bill’s Pest Control covering High Wycombe and surrounding areas.
Roy has over 20 years’ experience in pest control and used to be the head of Wycombe Council’s Pest Control Department prior to it being outsourced.
The warm weather has resulted in early Glis Glis activity this week. We caught one today, although they do not normally become active until mid-May onwards.
We are also getting regular sightings of queen wasps. If the weather continues both these pests could be very active this year.
Feral pigeons also appear to be on the increase with large numbers taking up residence on buildings around Amersham, Chesham and Little Chalfont.
We have begun to receive calls regarding wasps this week. The warm weather means queens have started to emerge from hibernation to restart their life cycle. The queens are easily distinguishable being larger than normal wasps.
If you are seeing queens at this time of year there is a good possibility that you will have an established population later in the year.
Staff from Old Bills Pest Control had an away on 4th March to attend a work shop in Guildford.
Of particular interest were talks by Dr Mathew Davies regarding the Campaign for Responsible Rodenticide Use followed by the control of flies in Hospitals.
That’s what we call an away day!
All part of ensuring that we are fully up to date with the latest developments within the industry.
