There are over 250 types of bees in the UK but there is only one European honey bee (Apis mellifera).

Please see below to identify what type of bee you have and who to approach for help and information.

If you feel you need to have the bees destroyed please contact MIDS Pest Control.

Bees are endangered but they are not protected.

Our beekeepers are only able to help in cases of honey bee swarms.

STEP 1: Identifying honey bees

If the insects are not honey bees, this part of the website shows you how to recognise other insects and gives some advice on what to do.

Bumblebees

Bumblebees are often confused with honeybees. However, they are rounder, larger and furrier and come with a variety of coloured stripes across the end of their tails. Are they in a bird box, under the decking, in the compost?

Beekeepers are unable to assist in the removal of bumblebees, therefore, Call MIDS Pest Control on 0800 9997600 we happily help you

Solitary bees

Are there lots of small bees popping in and out of the wall or very small holes in the ground. Do they have a “reddy/brown” bottom? Are they almost black?

These are solitary bees, of which there are 225 species recorded in the UK and they post no threat or harm to you, your family or pets. Solitary bees are important pollinators and should be left alone. Their numbers will decrease over the summer and their nests should be left alone.

 

Wasps

Is it bright yellow with black stripes? Very smooth, mainly yellow with black stripes? Is it on the roof of your house? Are they coming from around nest in a tree? Is there a nest in the shed? Do they have a high pitched buzz? Are they after all things sweet? Then these are probably wasps.

European Hornets

Are they very big with a loud buzz? Are they black and brown with a hint of orange? Living in the roof or shed? Do they have a very big curved tail? These are European Hornets and are valuable pollinators usually found in wooded areas.
