Bees and Wasps

Bees and Wasps

Bees and wasps have a painful sting, producing histamine in the human body which can be life threatening in some cases. It is important to be careful if you identify a bees or wasps’ nest in or around your home or business, as bees and wasps aren’t only annoying and harmful to your family, they can also be quite damaging to your home.

Bees and Wasps often set up nests, hives or swarms in the cavities of the structures, this can require costly repairs if left for long periods of time.  A bee hive is full of honey which can cause considerable damage to your home. A wasp nest in a cavity of your home can eat at the plaster, if you see bubbling in your walls or ceilings don’t poke at it, you may get a nasty surprise.

What to Do If You Have Bees or Wasps in or Around Your Home

  • Do not try to treat this yourself, our licensed, professional pest technicians use personal protective equipment to ensure they do not get stung. Many of our clients have called us from the hospital to treat the problem as they got stung trying to alleviate the problem themselves. It’s not worth it.
  • Cautiously identify the whereabouts of the nest, hive or swarm. If you do locate the area stay well clear and remove your pets from the area.
  • Keep food sources (especially sugar and protein) inside and secure. Bees and wasps feed on and are attracted to sugar and protein based foods. This includes pet food as well!
