Aderyn Pest Control

Flying Insects

Flies, midges mosquitoes, and wasps are all unwanted pests in residential and Commerical properties. For the most part, flying pests can be prevented from entering premises through insect screens and fly control measures. If breeding sites can be found, populations and subsequent infestations can be resolved with our services offering wasp removal in Cardiff.


Where to Find Them

Locating where adult flying pests congregate can lead to nearby breeding sites. Look for fly marks on light and alighting surfaces. Larval food must be moist so look for areas, where this accumulates for example, drainage channels, under equipment, and anywhere where waste food tends to accumulate. Is there a soggy residue in the base of bins? Look in residues for larvae.

Flying Insect Breeding Grounds

  • Musca domestica (Housefly)
    Rubbish tips, moist foods, damp mops.
  • Fannia canicurlaris (Lesser Housefly)
    Semi-liquid decaying organic matter.
  • Culicidae (Midges and Mosquitoes)
    Requires water for larval and purpae stages.
  • Calliphoridae (Blow Flies, Blue and Green bottles)
    Meat products, dead animals including rodents.
  • Drosophila spp (Fruit Flies)
    Fermenting vegetable matter.
  • Psychodidae (Filter Flies)
    Sewage, wet, rotting material.
  • Ceratopogonidae (Biting Midges)
    Damp soil, boggy areas.


Our pest control services in Bridgend encourage removal of breeding sites as a priority. Treat alighting and breeding sites with insecticides. For large numbers of flying insects, use Microgen. Sprays of dust are useful in treatment of refuse.

Wasp Infestations

Wasps are a highly evolved order of insects with a caste system, similar to ants, where workers (sterile females) build the nests, raise the young and forage for food under the direction of the queen wasp (egg-laying female).

Wasps play an important part in the ecosystem and natural nests should not be disturbed. They achieve pest status when they build their nests in buildings, roofs, and cavity walls, or forage for food around waste containers, confectionary manufacturing areas, preserve factories, restaurants, and food shops.

It is important to tell the difference between bees and pest wasps. All pest wasps have a narrow waist which gives the abdomen great mobility, elbowed antennae, mouth parts with powerful mandibles and fore and hind wings. They also have a characteristic black and “highlighter yellow” colour, and the ovipositor is modified to form a sting. 

The Importance of Controlling Wasps.

  • Prevention of food product contamination that could result in lost product or fines
  • Prevent wasp attacks on employees, tenants, and customers, causing stress and dissatisfaction
  • Prevention of health issues, wasps stings are unpleasant, painful, and dangerous for people with wasp allergies
  • Prevention of building damage, wasps build their nests out of wood which is problematic for cavity wall infestations
