             Bees and Beekeeping

Bees are incredibly important for our society, and especially in Britain where around 70 crops that are grown here benefit from or even rely on bees for pollination. It is thought that a third of the food we eat would not be available if it weren't for bees!

Whilst bees can be threatening and can sometimes pose a real danger to people, they are in danger themselves. They are disappearing from the environment due to parasites and disease. We must work to look after our humble bees!

Simon is a beekeeper himself, and a member of the BBKA (British Beekeeping Association) and fully understands their environmental importance. However, he also understands that on occasion they can become a pest control issue when they form a colony on, or inside the buildings we live in.

When this occurs, Pestology will carry out an inspection and assess the best course of action. The bees will sometimes move on quickly by themselves and no action will be necessary. The bees will only be destroyed as an absolute last measure when there is no other option. Otherwise, the bees can be collected and given to other beekeepers with empty hives!
