About Bees

Our pest specialists are trained and qualified to handle the unwanted bees buzzing about in or around your property. Home or business, we have the services you need.

They look to build their hive in a variety of places, depending on the type of bee. Many are solitary creatures, building little burrows in the earth. Others, like the honey type, look for hollow wood logs or the partitions of your home as an ideal location to develop a honey-producing hive.

They enter homes when a hive splits and they are in search of a new house. The tooth cavities in chimneys and walls are much like a hollow tree, therefore becoming a very desirable nesting ground.

Is It Really a Bee?

Real honey types are around an inch long and stout with furry bodies, straight antennae and 4 wings. Large flying insects of this appearance are often Carpenter Bees. Smaller sized, similar bugs are usually some range of non-social type (indicating they will not produce huge hives or nests). They can be a variety of colors from yellow and black, to green to all black. If you find a brownish type it is likely a Honey Bee. Although it is not a bee, a yellowjacket is about the exact same size of a bee but features a deeper black and brighter yellowish color.

The main risk from these flying insects is stinging. There is a range of protein toxins, enzymes and biogenic amines in their venom. Nevertheless, the results of their sting are not caused by the venom’s alkalinity or level of acidity, just the toxicity of that specific bee’s poison. It takes a great deal of stings, about 10 per pound, to kill a typical human. However, it’s important to know that an allergic individual could risk fatal results just from one sting. We really encourage you to phone a professional bee removal expert, even if it’s not one of our own. These stinging insects can be hazardous to try and handle on your own.

Why Are They Here?

Bees are often very random in choosing their nest locations. They do appear to prefer areas with morning sun, often East or Southeast facing places. Even extremely small holes enable access for them. It is likewise likely that they were already on the property. You just hadn’t noticed them until now.  Perhaps a previous hive wasn’t cleaned out correctly and is calling them back.
