As the weather hots up and we leave our windows and doors open and spend more time outdoors, you will no doubt be pestered by flying insects including bees and wasps, amongst others.
Wasps and honeybees are often mistaken for one another as visually they appear similar in body shape and colouring, and both insects are capable of giving painful stings! But how can you easily tell the difference.
According to experts, the UK’s meadow flower species have decreased by 97% since the 1930s, so there has never been a better time to begin creating your own wildflower areas and to help halt the rapid decline of our native wildflowers.
It's surprisingly easy to create a wildflower area, and it doesn't need to be the size of a football pitch, a small bed or even a planter will suffice.
