Bees and wasps are a common problem during the summer often building nests in walls, eaves, attics, and underground. Due to the dangers surrounding the removal of bees and wasps, only a professional pest management firm, such as PestFree™, should be handling bees and wasps are encountered in a structure. Our Technicians are equipped with a bee-suit and a hood to protect from stings and are specially trained to handle all circumstances. PestFree™ can safely remove a swarming hive of bees, in many that leave your home, children and pets safe and undisturbed.
Additional work may be required to eliminate the honey and honey combs that may be present and attract other pests once the bees are removed or eliminated.
No nest is too large or small for Pest Free.
Common Bee Pests
Bald Face Hornets are 3/4 inch long. These hornets are easy to recognize because of their color pattern. The head, thorax, abdomen, and antennae are black and white. Wings are smoky, Bald-faced Hornet nests are usually found in meadows, forest edges, gardens, and parks. Their nests are made by chewing up strips of wood and mixing it with sticky saliva. One nest may hold up to 700 hornets.
Honey Bees are a common problem during summer, often these bees seek to establish a new hive inside a wall cavity of a residential or commercial premises.
A swarm of bees can be extremely aggressive and are known to attack a person in such large numbers that they can cause death. They are also known to carry a highly toxic venom which is injected directly into the victim’s bloodstream, thereby inflicting a hideous swelling of the skin, particularly of children and people with a fair complexion.
In some cases, death may arise to people who are allergic to the bee venom or who are bitten by the swarm of bees in large numbers.
The Yellow Jacket Wasp can attack as a group and may sting many times which is very painful and highly inflammatory particularly if stung around the throat or other glandular parts of the body.
The Yellow Jacket wasp can be identified by the bright yellow and black stripes on its abdomen. Yellow Jacket Wasp nests are usually found in the ground, rockeries, tree stumps, wall cavities and roof voids. Deaths are known to occur when a European Wasp stings a person after the wasp has been swallowed. The Yellow Jacket Wasp may enter a soft drink or beer can (they like sugar) and if swallowed, it will bite and inject it’s venom inside the persons throat which will causing massive swelling of the glands and possible asphyxiation (suffocation).
The Paper Wasp has brown and orange stripes and is usually found in a small papery nest usually hanging from a horizontal surface, such as, on walls under ceilings, window sills, awnings, shrubs and similar locations. Paper Wasps can be very aggressive in hot weather and may cause severe pain from their sting. They are about 20 mm in length, and should be approached with extreme caution.
