FAQS - Insects

There is a swarm of bees in my garden, what do I do?

Bee swarms must be reported to your local police station.  They should be able to advise you of the best course of action.

I have a wasp’s nest in my loft

Unfortunately The Wildlife Aid Foundation does not get involved in wasp removal.  If you contact a specialist company they should be able to deal with this for you.

I have found some large white grubs in a pile of logs in my garden. What could they be?

They could quite possibly be stag beetle larvae.  Please try and leave them alone, as they are endangered and need certain conditions to be able to hatch.  For more information about stag beetles and all insects please visit the Amateur Entomologists’ Society website (www.amentsoc.org)
