Summer is approaching and so are the ants


The summer months are fast approaching and if you are a Warwickshire resident you know what else comes with summer – all kinds of ants. Ants are fine if you notice just one or two but the problem is that when they come in the hot months they come in numbers. They will get into your home because it is too hot for them outside – they are looking for somewhere cool to be just like you are. In addition to that, there are more ants than usual during Warwickshire summers because the warmth allows them to multiply fast.

Ant nests in or near your home are definitely going to be a problem. For one, there are some ants that are famous for destroying property – they will chew through wood in just a few weeks and leave you with lots of damage to repair. In addition to that ants will go at food in your kitchen and pantry and render it inedible. Even worse, there are ants that attack humans and pets and you may find your family at risk. That is why it is important to deal with ant colony problems as soon as you notice them.

You will know that you have an ant infestation when you notice more than a few of them around. They usually stay together in clusters and move on the ground in long lines, usually to and from their nest in the ground. You may also notice wood damage on your property or see ants where you store food.

So what is the best way of dealing with ant nests? You may have seen that there are many commercial options available in the supermarket – they are usually in powder or spray form and but the problem with these is that although they may work when you have a few ants they will not work when you have an ant infestation. You see, to kill ant infestations you have to get to the nest and kill their queen.

The best way to get rid of ant nests is to call in professional Warwickshire pest exterminators such as Avon Pest Control. They have the necessary equipment and chemicals to get rid of ants completely in your home. All the chemicals that they use are safe for humans and pets and they are also fast and efficient.

What do Masonry bees look like? How can I identify them and why are they pests?


The summer season is synonymous with insect infestation in many homes and businesses. In fact, countless owners will experience bee problems and bee nests in their trees and backyards. As we all know, bees do pollinate flowers and are a great source for honey production. Like wasps and hornets, however, bees possess deadly stingers and venom that can cause a range of health problems for humans and pests. If you spot bee hives or believe an infestation is occurring, simply contact Avon Pest Control. With years of extensive industry experience, we have the tools and expertise to safely remove bee hives and bees from all your residential and commercial properties.

Masonry Bees
Like other insects, there are several species of bees. This includes South American bees, along with African bees, honey bees, and Masonry bees. Masonry bees are active from spring to later summer, and specialise in making compartments of mud within their hives. This is where they breed, take care of their young and gather food. Most Masonry bees live within the mud holes they create. However, they do have a tendency to swarm if they sense potential predators and danger nearby. You can easily spot masonry bees by the brown, beige, and sometimes blue colors on their backs and bodies. These bees also love to congregate in tree holes, as well as in wooden planks in and around the home. If you spot these bees, contact the experts at Avon to take care of them at once. Avon utilises the following to eliminate masonry, honey, and other bees from your home or office:
·         Expert hive and mud pack removal from homes, businesses, and trees located on your property.
·         Pesticides and sprays that eliminate bees within their dwelling holes – especially the queen and her offspring.
·         Pesticides sprayed on flowers and other vegetation to lure bees in. Once they pollinate and take the liquids back to their hive – the hive will die off. (These pesticides will not damage your flower beds or plants).
·         Complimentary quotes and assessment for all residential and commercial property owners experiencing bee infestation.

Masonry Bees are Pests
Masonry bees are no different than other pests and critters. In fact, they can ruin your trees, plants, and even home exteriors with hives and mud packs. They also tend to be a bit aggressive around humans and domesticated pets. As a result, they need to be taken care of in a timely, effective, and lasting manner.  For more information on bee hive and bees removal, contact us today!

What do Honey Bees look like? How can I identify them and why are they pests?


Honey bees specialise in pollinating flowers and creating honey. While they are useful insects, honey bees do sting when they sense danger and potential predators. Honey bees also look like bumblebees; however, they have more slender and wasp-like bodies. Their wings are also more vertical than flat, and they do congregate in hives, trees, and mudpacks they create on the exteriors of houses. If you are dealing with honey bees and other bee nests, simply contact the experts at Avon Pest Control. With years of extensive industry experience, we have the tools and expertise to deal with any and all bee problems across the board.

Honey Bees as Pests
Honey bees tend to congregate in warm and arid areas. They also emit a buzzing sound that is truly annoying and a nuisance for home and business owners. These bees also tend to create hives in smaller trees – so they can keep track of potential prey on the ground and within the woodwork. Furthermore, these bees can also damage your flower beds, plants, and other vegetation in and around your property. Again, if they sense danger –they will swarm and attack like any other bee. As a result, it is essential to contact Avon Pest Control to handle all types and species of bees. For years, we have helped home and business owners with expert bees and bee hive removal.
