Bee & Wasp Control
Bees and Wasps
Bees & Wasps provide necessary and beneficial pollination for flower, crops, shrubs, etc. Nature depends on their activity to keep the natural order of plant life as we know it.
If there is no safety threat let them live. We need them!
Honey Bees are approximately ½ inch in length and golden brown in color.
In the spring they often leave the main hive with a queen and seek a new nest area. They may temporarily rest on a tree, fence or building in a large mass.
Contact a Bee Keeper, when you find a hive.
Yellow Jacket Wasps
Yellow Jacket Wasps are ½ to ¾ inch approximate length with yellow and black markings
They will occasionally nest in ground nearby or within walls of structures.
Do not attempt to seal holes overnight during Wasp inactivity. This will compound the problem by creating multiple entries/exits or forcing them into the structure. Contact us.
Aerial Yellow Jackets / Bald Face Hornets
Aerial Yellow Jackets/Bald Face Hornets are ¾ to 1 inch in length and are cream & black colored.
They will make exposed “pear” or “football” shaped nests in trees, shrubs or under eaves and soffits. They can be very aggressive wasps when the nest is disturbed. If left alone in high nest places away from homes, they are better left untreated.
As with all wasp treatments, if you do not have proper safety equipment and treatment procedures, it is best to call us.
Carpenter Bees and Bumble Bees
Carpenter Bees and Bumble Bees are similar in appearance. Both are approximately ¾ inch in length, black & yellow with a “fuzzy” or hairy body. Carpenter Bees differ by having a black shiny abdomen.
This bee will drill a perfectly round ½ inch hole into bottom edges of wood and construct gallery nests within.
These bees show aggression but are not known to sting, like Bumble Bees.
