The Risks Posed by Bees and Wasps

The primary concern with bees and wasps is the risk of stings. While bees typically only sting when they feel threatened or their nest is disturbed, wasps can be more aggressive and may even sting without provocation. 

For people allergic to bee or wasp venom, stings can cause severe allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, which can be life-threatening. Multiple stings or stings in sensitive areas can be painful and cause discomfort even for those without allergies. This risk is particularly significant if the nest is located near areas where people spend time, such as outdoor living spaces or entryways.

Bees and wasps can also cause property damage. When building their nests, they may choose locations like inside wall cavities or in roofs, which can lead to structural damage over time. Additionally, some species of wasps, such as yellow jackets, may construct nests underground, posing a risk to lawns or gardens. If left untreated, these nests can expand and potentially cause further damage. It is essential to address these infestations promptly.

How Do I Get Rid of Bees Permanently?

Here are some steps you can take to address a bee issue in an ethical and environmentally friendly manner:

  • Identify the species of bees involved.
  • Seek assistance from a local beekeeper or professional pest control service experienced in bee removal.
  • Locate the nest or swarm but avoid disturbing it.
  • Prevent future colonization by sealing off potential entry points after the bees have been safely removed.
  • Take measures to make your property less attractive to bees, such as minimizing outdoor food sources and sealing potential nesting sites.

It's important to prioritize the safety of both humans and bees, considering the vital role bees play in pollination and ecosystem health.

3 Reasons to Rely on Professional Help

It may be tempting to try and take on an infestation by yourself, but there are some significant advantages to calling in professionals: 

  • Safety: Bees and wasps can be particularly aggressive when their nests are disturbed or threatened. Our technicians, trained in bee and wasp removal, have the knowledge, experience, and protective gear to handle them safely. 
  • Effectiveness: Our deep experience has given us an understanding of the behavior and habits of different bee and wasp species, allowing us to devise appropriate strategies for removal. In contrast, DIY methods may not always be effective, and incomplete removal can result in recurring infestations or the relocation of the nest to another area of your property.
  • Eco-friendly Removal: Bees and wasps might be dangerous in our homes, but we need them for their pollination. We employ methods that aim for relocation whenever possible.
