The Problem With Bees

Many bees that take up residence in your home or property can sting, and will often swarm and do so when disturbed.

Bees benefit the environment in many ways, however, it is inconvenient and possibly dangerous to let a beehive thrive near your home. It is important to properly identify the species living near your home, as bees are often mistaken for wasps due to their similar physical characteristics. Different methods are used for wasp and bee control, so effective treatment relies upon proper identification.

There are many kinds of bees from the docile and helpful honey bee to the dangerous Africanized killer bee. Some bees will build nests in the ground, while others will build them in trees, off roof eaves, or even within the walls of your home. Bee infestations are very common in the spring and summer months. Before attempting any kind of bee removal, you should seek the help of a licensed professional who can identify which type of bee you are dealing with and recommend an appropriate bee treatment.
