Bee Pest Control

Bees are essential for our environment; these insects help pollinate plants that help grow our ecosystem. If you or someone on your property is allergic to bees, it is best to stay away from the bees or hive and call an expert.

Types of Bees

There are a variety of different bees, typically they are broken into two categories, social bees and solitary bees.

Social bees

  • Bumble bees
  • Honey bees
  • Africanized honey bees

Solitary bees

  • Carpenter bees
  • Ground bees
  • Digger bees
  • Mining bees
  • Leafcutting and mason bees
  • Sweat bees
  • Plasterer bees
  • Yellow-faced bees

Why do I have a bee problem

There is no “cause” for bee swarms and hives, per se, other than the fact that Africanized honey bees and European honey bees live in Arizona. However, you can determine what type of bee infestation you have by determining a few simple things:

  • Swarms: Swarms are generally a group of bees that cluster around an outdoor area, say near a tree branch or building. Swarms form when about half of an established colony breaks off to start a new colony. The bees stay together in a swarm as they search for a new home. However, swarming bees often aren’t aggressive – even Africanized honey bees – because they don’t yet have a home to protect.
  • Beehives: Beehives are home to bee colonies, where the queen lays eggs and where bees build honeycomb and produce honey. Bees often build their hives outdoors, such as in a hollow tree trunk, but they frequently build hives in attics and spaces between exterior and interior walls, as well as other wall cavities. If you notice large numbers of bees coming and going from one side of your house, or near the eaves or roofline, it is best to call a specialist who can safely check your house or building for an active beehive.

How to get rid of bees?

Bees are essential for our environment; these insects help pollinate plants that help grow our ecosystem. If you or someone on your property is allergic to bees, it is best to stay away from the bees or hive and call an expert. The only way to truly determine the next steps is to inspect, because different bees may require different treatments. Our overall approach requires fewer treatments by proactively preventing future problems.

How to prevent bees in the future?

There is no way to prevent a swarm from landing on your tree, and there is no guaranteed way to prevent a hive from moving into your home. Bees love dark, secure spaces, like the hollow of a dead tree or the space of a wall cavity. There are, however, a few tricks to discourage bees – killer or otherwise – from moving into your house.

  • Seal the house: Caulk cracks or spaces in walls or along eaves and rooflines.
  • Fill empty spaces: Use foam insulation to fill empty spaces in walls or seal off access to them.
  • Screen vents: Install fine-mesh screening across attic vents or baffling or vents that lead to other areas of the home.
  • Limit pollinating flowers: Avoid having pollinating flowers near doorways or patios
