Professional Bee Extermination
Certain species of bees can become pests in and around homes. At Anteater Exterminating Inc., we specialize in bee extermination and other pest control services like rodents, cockroaches, and scorpions in Phoenix.
Some species require more attention, primarily because of their ability to inflict stings, while others may also cause structural damage as a result of their nest-building activities. Bees become a primary concern when a feral hive takes up residence on a property occupied by humans.
Why are there bees in your home?
A feral or wild hive has a queen that all the drones will follow, and you should strongly consider calling a pest control specialist for bee extermination. The estranged colony is just looking for a safe, new home. The feral hive will remain in transit until the queen locates a sustainable place for her brood or bee babies. A lot of times, when a wild colony lands in a tree, bush, or the side of a structure, it is because the queen is merely resting herself. If the brood does not have protection from the environment, it cannot stay long. As with all natures’ creatures, protection from the sun, rain, wind, and cold are essential to survival.
Usually, if you leave the hive alone and wait until the next day, it will move on. Once in a while, it can take a few days. If the bees are not in a sensitive area and you feel comfortable, wait a few days to see if they will leave. Doing this can save you money and preserve a beneficial hive of busy bees. If the queen finds protection from the environment, the colony will take up residence leading to the need for extermination services.
The queen may find a crack or crevice on the side of a building and move into the hollow wall voids for protection. The drones filter in one by one and begin the process of constructing new honeycombs. Bees commonly harbor in block wall voids, in-ground utility boxes, underwood floors of sheds or houses, in different voids of the walls of our structures.
Types of Bees
There are many different species of bees. Some bees are beneficial to the environment for pollinating crops and flowers. Other insects, like wasps and hornets, don’t help pollinate and can be quite a nuisance.
The decline in the bee population is a significant concern for many people. Honeybees are a substantial contributor to the pollination process. Without these bees, crops will die, and there will be food shortages worldwide. Honeybees are typically not a problem for most people, but if they happen to build their hive in an inconvenient place, their removal could be necessary. These bees are not known to sting unless in self-defense because they can only sting once.
Bumblebees are also excellent pollinators and beneficial to the environment. You can typically find bumblebee nests in the ground, but it is not unusual for them to nest under patios, in attics, or under roof beams. These bees can sting more than once and will do so if someone or something threatens their hive.
As often as possible, removing these bees instead of exterminating them is the best thing to do. These bees are necessary for the environment, and their population is at a drastic decline. At Anteater Exterminating Inc., we are happy to refer to your local beekeeper that will remove and relocate the bees to a safer environment.
The difference between wasps and bees is as different as night and day. Wasps only have two pairs of wings and are not fuzzy, which means they do not contribute to pollination. They can also sting more than once. Which makes them more of a concern when they build nests in public areas.
Hornets are considered a subcategory of wasps and are much more aggressive. They will actively defend their territory even if you happen upon it accidentally. Hornets can sting multiple times and can be quite painful. Those with allergic reactions should take extreme caution until the nest can be dealt with appropriately.
At Anteater Exterminating Inc., we understand how uneasy it can be to have a wasp nest near your home, especially with children or pets. For these reasons, we take extreme caution when handling these situations.
Dangers Of Bee Removal
Once a queen has established her brood in or around property humans occupy, the hive will have to be dealt with by a local bee exterminator in Phoenix. The chances of effectively removing or exterminating the colony on your own are slim. The only option is to contact an exterminator. Anteater Exterminating Inc. technicians are ready willing and able to take on the unwanted guests and root them out.
Do not ever attempt to exterminate or relocate a hive yourself; it can be a fatal mistake
All bees aggressively attack when there is any threat to their colony. The drones will release a pheromone that triggers a swarm of aggressively stinging bees. If you are allergic, your breathing passageways can swell shut.
