Houston Pest Exterminator: Bee & Wasp Removal

Bees and wasps serve a critical role in nature by pollinating plants and flowers. That said, people usually don't want hives or nests near entryways, patios, and eaves, especially if anyone in their household is allergic to stings. ABC pest control services include wasp extermination and bee removal in Houston. Homeowners trust the trained and knowledgeable technicians at ABC Home & Commercial Services to lower the chances of a painful encounter with these stinging insects.

Identifying the Proper Pest Control Services After Spotting a Nest

Spotting a bee or wasp on your property may indicate these insects nest in and around your home. It can be challenging to determine what type of pest you’re dealing with since they often share similar characteristics. After an initial pest inspection, our highly trained technicians will recommend a course of action to address your specific needs.

Services we can provide include:

Depending on where you see bee activity around your home, an ABC technician can determine the best course of action for safely removing them from your property. Contact a Bee Removal expert at ABC today and get started with a free consultation.

Expert Wasp Control 

Texas is also home to many types of wasps, including paper, yellow jackets, hornets, cicada killers, mud daubers, and Mexican honey wasps. Wasps tend to make their homes underneath overhangs, so you can often find evidence of nests under eaves, porches, decks, and around wall cavities, bird boxes, sheds, and garages.

Removing nests on your own may seem like the most straightforward form of wasp control, but it can be potentially dangerous if you or a family member is allergic to a wasp’s painful sting.

When you contact us, we will schedule an inspection to get an understanding of the problem. In some cases, we can give you a quote over the phone.

Step 2: Get An Estimate

If you have an inspection, we will send you a custom treatment plan and estimate afterward. Once we get your approval, we will schedule your treatment.

Step 3: Treatment

We will come to your property and treat for pests in common hiding and nesting areas. Over time, you will start seeing less and less pest activity.

Step 4: Prevention

Customers with our ongoing pest management services will receive periodic retreatments to prevent the return of the most common pests in our area.

At ABC, we recognize both your need to keep your family and pets free of painful stings and the important ecological role of pollinators.

Our concern for the environment extends to  your home , and that means only using low-impact products.

We offer a full range of pest control services.

In some cases, we may not be able to remove bees from your property without killing them. If the location of the hive makes the bees impossible to remove, or if the risk that these stinging insects pose to your family is immediate, we may recommend a bee kill treatment. In such cases, we will let you know and leave the decision up to you before moving forward.

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon can you come out?

We understand that once you see bees or wasps in and around your home, you want the problem taken care of immediately. Give us a call and we will send a pest control expert to your home as soon as possible to inspect your property and recommend a course of action.

Can I remove bees on my own?

We learn at a very young age that it can be very dangerous to disturb a bee or wasp nest. Bee and social wasp species use alarm pheromones to send a chemical signal to the rest of the colony to attack if they feel a threat is imminent. Avoid the risk of painful stings by calling in the experts at ABC to handle bee removal or wasp control.

How does the bee removal process work?

Once our pest control experts survey your property and locate a hive, we will use our Bee-Vac to suck the live bees out of their nesting spots. Then, we remove all viable honeycombs and nest sites. Live bees are transported, unharmed, from your home to a remote location. Then, we seal the entry point to the colony to ensure that bees no longer choose your property as a nesting spot.

What if I still see bees and wasps after a treatment?

It is not unusual to see an increase in activity as we apply treatments which drive these flying insects out of their normal hiding spots. This increase is only temporary.

If we remove an entire hive, we guarantee that you will not see bee activity in that spot for one year. If you do continue to see bees at the spot of removal within a year, we will return to take care of the problem, at no cost to you.

“I would definitely recommend ABC!! They were professional, courteous, and did a great job. During the treatment my blinds had to be removed, and they graciously put them back up before they left. Blair came three weeks later to do a follow-up check and was extremely friendly and helpful. He gave me more information and suggestions in regards to staying bed bug free. He even carried my large Amazon package into the garage for me. I would definitely recommend them for all your pest control needs. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”

“Do your research, but this is the company to choose for your pest and rodent control. A new townhouse community is being developed in an adjacent wooded field, so all these woodland creatures started relocating to our established neighborhood. I get it, this land was theirs before it was ours, but after 20 years, they had no right to move into my house rent free. The cute hares/ rabbits were ok at first. They would flop around, and the worst they would do is leave small chocolate eggs in the yard. But when we heard scurrying in the attic, our anxiety levels started to rise. We were already overwhelmed by a pipe bursting in the garage in February due to a flash freeze. Then we noticed droppings as the restoration company came and cleared out the garage. But we really didn't connect all the dots because simultaneously we were caring for my 85 year old grandmother who was on hospice care from terminal breast cancer. So our hands were a little full at the time. But when we saw evidence that there was probably a mouse or something, we had to make it a priority. I called 3 or 4 local companies for quotes. 2 came to the house and 2 acted like they could care less about actually securing my business but were willing to quote hundreds of dollars for the service. One thing that stood out was the other companies said they would plug the holes leading into the house, but 2 said they don't go into the attic. Well that's where we heard them and so it didn't make sense to not go in the attic to hunt them down. Then Kirby from ABC came out. He did a thorough inspection and designed a plan to attack the problem. They definitely weren't the cheapest company, but they provided the best proposal with the strongest warranty. So we pulled the trigger. The crew was very professional and plugged holes and set traps. And the we waited. But there were no dead mice for weeks. So they came back out and found more holes to plug. Then the rodents got more desperate. One was bold enough to entire the kitchen at night. I was ready to burn down the entire house. Frustration was level 10. By this point my grandmother had passed away. Grief plus phobia and a general sense of absolute exhaustion had settled in. All the techs that came out were nice, friendly, professional and courteous, BUT we were sick of the rats running our house. I was also frustrated by what seemed to be a long wait between reporting sightings and an available appointment time. Mark Rodriguez came out and did a good job observing the situation and he realized that a supervisor was needed for a solution. Enter Kenneth! He was absolutely amazing. Between crawling through the attic and discovering new holes to tracking down a food source (a case of mac snd cheese boxes) in the garage that my grandmother left months before her passing (she was always prepared for when her great-grandchildren came over), Kenneth understands the mind of a mouse and the rationale of a rat. He made it his mission to eliminate these evils. And one by one, he did. Kenneth is a hero in our household. He will be receiving a Christmas card this year. My grandmother's dying wish was to rid the house of these invaders, and Kenneth and his team were able to accomplish that. It was worth ever penny for the complete customer care and warranty on the work. If you are looking for a quality solution, you've found it. Be patient, because rodents can be tricky and hard to eradicate, but ABC is committed to the long haul.”
