Wasps are probably the most familiar and generally disliked of all British insects.


Two types of mice are found in Britain which can become pests if not dealt with.


Adult Fleas are about 2-7mm long and brownish in colour. Their bodies are compressed which allows them to move efficiently through hairs, and their relatively large hind limbs allow them to have excellent jumping qualities.


Cockroaches are large insects which range in size from 10 - 23 mm in length, they have long whip like antennae and two pairs of wings.


The grey squirrel is a common sight in local parks and gardens and because of its prolific breeding has to some extent led to the demise of the native red squirrel.


The feral (meaning "wild") pigeon is about 33 cm in length and weighs between 280 and 560g - average about 350g.
