Having a problem with Bees?
PGM & SON Pest Control will not treat bees unless there is a serious risk to public health. Bees are great for the environment and, as they are beneficial, we do not consider them to be a pest. Bees will not normally sting unless provoked so we encourage you to try to live in harmony with your bees.
If, however, your bees are causing a nuisance we can suggest that you contact your local beekeeper who may be able to remove the swarm. Visit: www.bbka.org.uk/swarm And enter your postcode at the foot of the page to find your local beekeeper. Alternatively, you can contact the British Beekeepers Association on 0871 362 0138 (please note calls to this number cost 24p for the first minute and 9p per minute thereafter plus your phone company's access charge). They should be able to point you in the direction of the nearest beekeeper.

Information on Bee Nest Control
At PGM & Son, WE LOVE BEES! We do everything we can to remove honey bees without harming them, this goes for Bumble bees too.
All bees are beneficial and at PGM & Son we do not consider them to be a pest.
And bees are endangered so unless there’s a serious threat to human life, pest controllers will not use pest control treatments. If your pest controller recommends using a pesticide on your bee problem, THINK AGAIN! Here’s some useful information about our much loved insect:
The Honey Bee (Apis Mellifera)
They live in the wild or are kept by bee keepers. Either way, they will not sting unless provoked. Because of their importance to the eco-system we strongly recommend that every effort should be made to avoid controlled treatment or removal of a bees’ nest. Use of a pesticide should only ever be considered as a last resort.
There are several species of bees native to the UK. All bees are pollinators and, if left undisturbed, will cause no harm. They’re very helpful to gardens and crops and that’s why we love them at PGM & Son. Our beautiful county of Herefordshire is in no small way owed to our friend the bee!
Risks of treating with pesticides
If foraging bees ++locate a nest which has been treated with a pesticide they may come into contact with the pesticide and carry it away. This could result in contamination of honey supplies (including in other nests).
