Pest Control Bees

Bees are treated using “Ficam D” which contains the chemical Bendiocarb 1%w/w. This is a very modern insecticide, which is not highly toxic to mammals, but is highly toxic to the hymenopterous group of insects. i.e. wasps, bees and ants.

After treatment the nest can remain in a hyperactive state for a few hours and will usually completely stop within 7 warm days, longer in cold or wet days. Honey bee swarms will usually die out within 24hrs.

The main bee types are bumble and honey, with many sub species of wild bees. Bumblebees are the largest species and usually live in the ground or places like compost heaps. Great care is taken when dealing with theses Honey bees, to prevent any contamination of local hives.

Proofing is highly recommended after treatment to stop other honey bees contracting the poison and transferring it to another local hive. Honey bees often nest in chimneys which may require two people to safely treat. This work is extra to the normal standard charge.
