1. Unlike bees, wasps can sting people many times. Although typically an individual sting will wear off within 24 hours for a small minority of people the venom in their sting may cause anaphylactic shock.

2. Wasp queens start their colonies in spring every year, and in August the wasps die apart from a few new queens.

3. Wasp nests are made out of paper. The wasps will chew up small strips of tree bark and spit it out again to form a building material.

4. Worker wasps can live on average between 12 and 22 days, drones for slightly longer, and queens will typically live for around 12 months.

5. Wasps can mobilize an entire nest to sting in defense very quickly by releasing a pheremone. This can be highly dangerous to humans and animals.


1) Ant colonies can be many different shapes and sizes, some species have colonies of only a few dozen however on average a colony can typically have thousands of ants.

2) Ants can lift many times their body weight due to their extremely small size and because their muscles are much thicker relative to their body mass.

3) Ants can be found almost anywhere on Earth. Out of around 11,000 species globally, 50 of these live in the UK.

4) Ants will often explore into human’s homes in search for food, meaning they can often be found hiding in kitchens during summer months.


1. Clothes moths such as the common clothes moth and case-bearing clothes moth evolved to eat fibres from animal origin such as fur, feathers and wool.

2. Some rare moths in the UK can be more serious pests such as the Brown-tail moths’ caterpillars can cause severe skin irritation and rashes. The oak processionary moth’s caterpillars can also cause irritation and respiratory problems from their hairs, which can become airborne.

Bed Bugs

1. Bed bugs are typically found in beds, small cracks and crevices and can thrive not just in human homes, but also schools, hospitals and offices.

2. Their primary food source is human blood, when they feed they will inject the skin with their saliva which contains an anesthetic.

3. Bed bugs do not spread disease, but their bites can cause red, itchy welts. These patterns on exposed skin can be a definite sign of a bed bug infestation.


1) Cockroaches can run up to three miles in an hour, which means they can spread germs and bacteria throughout a home or business location very quickly.

2) Some people may have an allergic reaction to cockroaches or have asthma symptoms as their feces and saliva contain allergens.


1) Male house spiders strike out in search of a mate in the autumn, which is why you notice them more indoors – especially when they sprint across your living room floor!

2) Most spiders in the UK are not poisonous however their bites can cause skin irritation.

3) Spiders are attracted to other pests, meaning if you notice a large number of spiders in your home you may have other pest problems that you have not yet noticed!


1) Flea pupae can live for up to one year in homes and Fleas can lay up to 1,500 eggs in their lifetime.

2) Due to their feeding and breeding habits, flies come into contact with a range of harmful bacteria such as Salmonella and E.coli. Because of this, flies will often aid the spread of these bacteria.

3) Although they do not pose a direct risk to humans, prolonged itching from their bites can lead to infection.

4) Fleas are not just attracted to cats and dogs but also humans, other mammals and birds.


1) Flies feed by regurgitating their stomach digestive fluid onto food that they land on.

2) Flies leave traces of fecal matter where they walk, which is one potential way that they can transfer harmful bacteria to humans.

3) House flies have a lifespan of about 30 days, however in that time they can lay up to 500 eggs in that time.
