We now have the Tree Bumblebee (Bombus hypnorum) in the North West. While we try not to harm bees, this variety is dangerous when nesting low down in your garden or on the structure of your building. We do not generally really like to destroy bees but this bee is dangerous when nested in the proximity of people, in particular small children and pets. Its characteristic markings, black body, the orange thorax and white rear end, make it straight forward to spot and we advise calling a pest controller promptly you suspect you may possibly have a nest. Do not get too close! For aid with identifying this variety check out our wasps and bees site.
We do all we can to help bees whenever possible and we ourselves now maintain a hive of honeybees and aim to be able to provide honey for sale in the autumn Please visit our Harrier Honey dedicated web page for further information.

Most common infestations
Harrier Pest Control destroy wasps’ nests in the summer for a fixed rate of just £35.00, we will never ask for more to destroy a wasps’ nest unless specialised access apparatus such as a cherry-picker or scaffolding is needed to get to the nest
However, once we get much beyond mid-September we are coping with what we call a late season wasps’ nest, where an added treatment to your loft space may be required.
We try and take care of wasps’ nests from the outside of the property whenever practical and we like to use extension lances rather than ladders, it’s less risky for everyone concerned.
Our operative will come along by scheduled appointment, inject a small amount of powdered pesticide into the entrance to the wasps’ nest and the returning wasps will bring it into the heart of the nest and inside an hour every one of the wasps will be dead.
On condition that we can get to where the nest is without passing through the home then you can prepay using the internet and we’ll destroy it while you are out. Our specialist wasp control website offers a PayPal button for you to use. We will then eradicate the nest when you are out, but please call us to inform us that you have paid and keep unlocked any gates we will need to go through.
If there are any factors which may be significant such as the presence of bats etc then please do not wait until we arrive on-site to inform us about them, we won’t carry out a treatment if it’s dangerous but we will ask you for a call-out fee.
Bed Bugs are rife in the Harrier Pest Control area of operation and numerous experts believe that the Olympic Games will trigger an explosion in these revolting infestations over the next couple of years.
There is a great deal of confusion between bed bugs and dust mites. In contrast to dust mites which are relatively harmless, bed bugs are not found in every bed but only in the beds of people unlucky enough to become infested.
Bed bugs are easily spotted and look like an apple pip, especially when fully developed and newly fed. They aren’t symptoms of bad sanitation, all they need to have is a blood feed every few days – your blood!
Acquiring bed bugs is quite easy, you do not even need to stay in an infested hotel, you can find them on trains and buses even.
It only requires a single female to quickly create an infestation in your house and they scatter like wildfire throughout connected properties, semi-detached and terraced etc. If the infestation is very severe you can suffer 4-600 bites per night and become actually quite ill.
Whatever you do PLEASE do not try and deal with the problem by yourself, I guarantee that you will simply just make things so much worse. If you suspect that you may possibly have got a bed bug infestation then please contact us for information well before you do anything at all.
Before you undergo any steps at all, most certainly do not purchase a brand new bed or bedding because it will be infested by bed bugs on the very first night.
Interior Ants are a major pest of the spring and summer months. Many people will know the terror of flying ants rising into their houses and are afraid of the the summer season for this reason.
However, we are nowadays substantially better prepared to tackle ants than we were even a few of years ago. We can now with assurance offer a 3 year warranty on ant jobs in the majority of cases.
The process is perfectly safe for children and your pets.
Why spend cash and fight for years with dusts and potions which never work when we can cure the problem and give you a guarantee, renewable in three year periods.
Flea infestations are on the rise again, even with people who frequently treat their dogs and cats.
This appears to be mainly because populations of cat fleas and dog fleas in the Harrier Pest Control area of operation are growing to be resistant to the active ingredients in the flea control products sold to the public.
We are discovering that dog fleas and cat fleas are especially troublesome in places with town foxes.
It is important to address a cat flea or a dog flea problem as they can lead to serious problems, particularly for youngsters as they can carry and transmit tapeworms.
