The ever-popular BPCA Find a pest controller tool now includes options for ethical bee removal and Glis glis treatments.

Kevin Higgins, BPCA Membership Manager, said:

“We all know we shouldn’t be treating bees with insecticides unless it’s an imminent threat to human health and safety.

“New species-specific label conditions make insecticide treatment tricky for pest management companies.

“The new ‘Bee removal’ option shows our members’ commitment to protecting these important pollinators.

“Those with specialist skills to relocate bees will now be able share this service on their Find a pest controller profile”.

Dee Ward-Thompson, BPCA Technical Manager said:

“With Glis glis being a specific problem for the Home Counties, many pest companies will not offer this specialist service.

“We can now be sure that members of the public are only being pointed in the direction of companies that have the knowledge and experience required to deal with these pests”.
