Bee season comes every year from spring to mid summer without fail. It’s important to control bees early so they don’t take over your outdoor space. We know exactly how to deal with bee and wasp removal. Our bee removal services aren’t just for homeowners. We also remove bees and bee hives from businesses, apartment complexes and condominiums. Our technicians will inspect the structure to determine where and how bees are entering and exiting. After a comprehensive inspection, we'll remove the hive, seal up entry points and remove any bee debris left behind.
The presence of bees in your home can be a scary and frightening experience. If you think you may have bees nesting in your home, removing them quickly is important. If you find a bee nest, it can be dangerous to try to remove it yourself. Bee infestations can pose a health risk and the honeycombs can damage the surrounding structure.
Bees and wasps are often mistaken for one another, as both can sting. Wasps are generally more aggressive, while bees sting as a last resort. Knowing the difference between a bee and a wasp infestation is the first step to eliminating the problem. Bees are thick bodies and covered in hair, while wasps have smooth, shiny, slender bodies with a narrow waist. Bees and wasps like to nest in the cracks and spaces around your home. This includes around pipes, doors, windows, sill plates, and foundation.
While bees work to build a colony, it is unlikely that you will notice their presence on your property. Only after bees have built a thriving hive do most property owners realize they have an infestation. If you have an established hive in a wall, attic or crawlspace, do not spray the bees with bug spray or your garden hose. This will only agitate the bees and make them more likely to sting you. The bees, honey, honeycomb and other bee hive materials will all need to be professionally removed. Our bee removal team will safely remove the bees and prevent them from coming back.
They survive year-round and don’t need to reestablish their colonies. When the honey starts to melt it can cause damage, which can attract even more bees.
Carpenter bees are about an inch long, with hairless, black shiny bodies. They create perfect circular holes drilled into wood to lay their eggs before protecting them with sawdust. Carpenter bee burrowing can exceed 8 feet in length and can cause major damage to your home. Carpenter bee holes can be found in uncured wood siding, roofing, wooden decks or deck furniture, fencing, telephone poles, wooden mailbox posts, etc. These pests typically live solitary lives, but in large numbers can damage to woodwork in homes. Their tunnels often lead to moisture and decay, creating structural damage similar to termites. If you think you have carpenter bees in your home, give us a call. Our team of highly-trained technicians will help you rid your home of carpenter bees quickly.
Wasps are a common sight around homes, yards, gardens, flowers, tree blossoms, and gutters. The wasp family includes hornets, mud daubers, paper wasps, and yellow jackets. Due to the range in of species in the wasp family, nests come in a variety of sizes and can be found on poles, soffits, under house siding, or in trees. Wasps eat dead insects, rotting fruit or trash. Wasps have smooth stingers that allow them to sting multiple times. Wasps are dangerous and have no reservations about stinging you, your family, or pets. Wasp nest removal is highly dangerous and should only be carried out by a trained professional. If you see wasps buzzing around your property, call us to remove them.
These large wasps come in a variety of colors depending on species. Hornets are aggressive, especially when protecting a nearby nest. Nests should only be dealt with by a trained professional. These flying pests are beneficial in nature because they eat other insects. However, the immediate threat hornets pose to you and your family outweighs any pest control benefits they may provide.
These aggressive wasps are often mistaken as bees, but they are much faster and more dangerous. They are about 1/2 inch long, with yellow and black striped markings. Yellow Jackets create small nests that look a bit like paper mache. They are social species of wasp and live in large colonies.
Watch for hives and nests being built. Sometimes bees will use openings in existing structures like walls, roofing, rocks and trees. Use silicone-based caulk, fine mesh steel metal screens, and steel plates to seal common entry points. Plant flowers away from high-use areas to avoid aggravating bees. Peppermint works as a bee deterrent as they are repelled by the strong smell. Wasps are often attracted to rotting food, always clean and cover your garbage cans. Ensure all door and window screens are in good repair.
I had a bumble bee problem by my front porch. I emailed Chris at 5:20 p.m. on Wednesday. By 9:15 a.m. Thursday morning, he was at my house. Saw where the bees were, suited up and sprayed the nest. He made sure he got as many as he could that were returning to the nest. I highly recommend Chris.
Chris was fantastic, very knowledgeable about his business. On the first call he explained everything that needed to be done to solve my bee problem, and despite having already been in my area early that day, was able to come back and fit me in the same day we had our initial phone call. I found Chris to be very honest and knowledgeable, I hope I don't have another bee problem, but I would hire him again without question.
Chris was great! Very professional and knowledgeable. Explained what he could do and couldn't do, it is nature. We had wasps flying all over the yard and after spraying, bushes, trees, shed, swing set ext. we hardly had any flying around the day of the party. It's that tine of year for wasps and would definitely have him come out again to spray if we were having a gathering.
Chris came through after Terminex did not follow through on their appointment. It was nice to talk to an individual not an operator that was just taking a message. Chris listened to my problem and was able to come out the next morning. He sprayed the whole outside of the house for pest control beside the original problem which was bees. He was extremely informative and I will use Chris each year.
Wow! I called on Saturday and within 10 minutes I had a technician at my door. They were able to remove my wasp and hornet nests and spray the entire house the same day (they usually do not do service calls on Saturdays). Thank you for that exception. Great customer services and reasonable price. Will definitely use them again.
