Throughout Surrey there are about 26 different species of bumble, from quite small white tailed bumblebees to the larger buff tailed bumblebee.

The most aggressive of all bumbles is the Asian Tree species, with an orange thorax and white tail this particular bee nests above ground level unlike other bumblebee species.

Bombus Hypnorum or Asian Tree Bees are now the most commonly seen in the UK and are a real threat to native bees. Food source is scarce for all bees but this particular species is quickly taking over and they do need to be controlled.

If you are experiencing bees in the gutter line, under loft insulation or in a discarded bird box then you have an infestation of Asian Tree Bumblebees. Extreme caution should be made as these bees will attack.

Which species is the most dangerous?

The Asian Hornet is by far the most dangerous species in the UK, but Asian Tree Bumblebees, European Hornets and wasps can cause fatalities.

Is the wasp nest destroyed?

Not initially if occupied, bees, hornets and wasps need to feed and collect construction materials and therefore many will be away from the nest when treatment is applied. The foraging insects need to return and go through the treatment for complete eradication.

Can you take a nest away?

Absolutely, this would need to be done two days or more after the initial treatment, the cost is the same as a wasp control Surrey treatment. If you remove the nest yourself we suggest to wait a week or two to ensure all wasps have died.



Hornets pose a real risk to the public if disturbed, only professional pest control technicians should ever approach an active hornets nest.

Are Hornets a protected species?

No. European hornets can be left alone if nesting away from the garden or home area but Asian Hornets require rapid extermination because they kill our native honeybees.

Do Hornets Nest on homes?

Very much so, hornets have become far more urbanised and are regularly seen nesting on buildings within the Surry and surrounding area.

Do Hornets sting?

Yes and it is very painful, although the sting has no more venom than a wasps sting it will penetrate far deeper and enter into the muscle which causes immense pain.
