Well it’s the autumn, frosty mornings and sunny days highlighting the tree’s in all their finery – russets, gold and yellow and just a few green leaves sprinkled about to lighten the palette, it is beautiful at the moment. The best thing about the autumn? Sunday roast when its cold outside, the smell of chicken roasting and the heat from the kitchen filling the house and a cold beer in my hand – now that’s what I call autumn. 
The word lawn comes from the middle English word launde which originally referred to a glade or an opening in a woodland, over the centuries the word adapted until it is as we know it today – lawn. 
 
Whats is it about wasp stings that make then so painful? I get that mossie bites itch and ants give you a nasty little nip but as a pest controller I do get stung by wasps from time to time and why oh why are they so painful? 
 
So I did a little research; for me its like a lightening bolt when they sting followed by nothing and then nothing, after a couple of hours I get the 'itch' and ohh what an itch. Then the swelling and more itching, no pain except for that first few seconds but the swelling is painful and the itch keeps me awake at night.

We often see a rise in pest control callouts following the return of holiday makers, and when you consider that in 2017 there were over 72,000,000 overseas trips from the UK then it’s a common occurrence for travellers to come back with more than a tan and some dodgy looking souvenirs.

We love bee's here at All Aspects Pest Control; we don't keep them but as someone who gets called out to destroy their nests and colonies you soon realise that these amazing insects don't actually pose a threat to us and they are something that should be protected. 
We get numerous calls to reports of wasps only to find out that they're bumble bee's or honey bee's so we have put together a quick visual guide to what is a pest and what isn't. 
Some hoverflies are disguised to look like wasps and we have a policy of not treating bee's unless its absolutely necessary, so use this guide to help work out if its wasps or bee's. 
A recent study of bed bugs by Sheffield University reveals that bed bugs are over 115 million years old and survived the extinction event that wiped out the dinosaurs, bed bugs were always thought to have evolved from a parasite that feeds off bats but their DNA shows they existed long before the bats were around. 
One of our most regular sources of pest control involves the control of pigeons and the installation of bird proofing measures: here is one of our latest jobs.
