Pest Control

The following is a list of pest control companies who cover various locations and may be able to help dealing with non-honey bee issues, but you are urged to please ensure that there is no other action that can be taken to resolve the concern and protect the insects.

Please click this link Honey Bee Swarm Collection to see details of the honey bee swarm collection service provided by Reigate Beekeepers. The use of pest control companies should only be an absolutely last resort in dealing with a problem caused by honey bees, and only where the honey bees cannot be saved.

  1. I really love your blog.. Pleasant colors & theme. Did you
    create this site yourself? Please reply back as I’m hoping to create my own website
    and want to find out where you got this from or what the theme is called.
    Kudos!

    • Hi, Thanks for the feedback. The website was created using the WordPress.com theme ‘Newsy’ a s the starting point, customized with background/font colours and header etc. I believe that ‘Newsy’ is no longer available, but browse the WordPress themes for similar.
      Top Tip. When browsing the themes, try to focus on the layout, structure and menu styles and not be distracted (or put off) by the sample content or colours used.
