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:

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.

At ABC, we recognize both your need to keep your family and pets free of painful stings and the important ecological role of pollinators. That’s why we make every effort to relocate bee colonies to areas that are better suited for both humans and these important insects. 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.

“So far the service we've been getting is as scheduled. However, this time I was not notified 30 minutes prior to arrival as originally told. The front looks great as usual. The backyard wasn't edged as nice as the front (or at all?), and I really would have appreciated deep edging around our firepit. Addendum 12/8/23: Changed 3 stars to 5 stars for follow-up service! After the above review, I was contacted by ABC in regards to my initial review. Anne was very courteous and eager to send someone out to follow up on my concerns. Arrangements were made that met my schedule, and the crew was very prompt in their arrival on said scheduled date. Our backyard is now 10 times better. Granted, there is still clean up to do on our part, but now it will be so much easier. Certainly worth the subscription price based on customer service alone! Photos depict final work first vs initial service.”

“He had ABC home and commercial services treat our home for a flea infestation. They were quick efficient and extremely informative. The technician was very thorough, advised what we should expect when he would be out again, he took great care of our Furniture, and personal affects as he moved him around and sprayed the house. We will absolutely be using ABC home and commercial service going forward”
