Wasp & Bee Removal
Bees and wasps can be beneficial, but they can also be dangerous in large numbers. Orlando’s warm climate offers a welcoming environment for many species of bees and wasps. It’s important to take action if you find them on your property, and we can help! When it comes to wasp control and bee removal in Orlando, homeowners trust the trained and knowledgeable technicians at ABC Home & Commercial Services to lower the chances of a painful encounter with these stinging insects.
Bees and wasps are flying insects that are closely related to ants. Each species offers certain benefits, both to the overall ecosystem and to humans in particular. Many species of bee play a crucial role in pollination, which certain plants require in order to reproduce. People have also domesticated at least one species of bee, the honey bee, in order to harvest its namesake product. Wasps prey on other insect species, which can also be beneficial.
Identifying the Proper Pest Control After Spotting a Nest
Despite the benefits they offer, bees and wasps become pests when they take up residence in or around your home. Both types of insects have a painful sting, and people with certain allergies are at risk of dangerous reactions. Every so often, a person in Florida requires extensive medical care because of a large number of bee or wasp stings. After an initial inspection, our highly trained technicians will recommend a course of action to address your specific needs.
Services we can provide include:
- Locating bee and wasp nesting spots and removing or applying treatments in these areas to stop the spread of these insects
- Inspecting your property for cracks and openings in your home’s exterior, including soffits, wall voids, and window and door casings to eliminate future points of entry
- Utilizing effective, low impact products to eliminate existing flying insects
- Humanely relocating bee hives
Professional Bee Removal Services
Bee and wasp stings are painful, so it’s easy to get nervous if you see a yellow and black creature flying around your yard–especially if they show up in areas where you and your family enjoy spending time. The safest way to deal with stinging insects is to contact a pest control professional. Knowing where different bee species nest can help to do an initial inspection of your property before calling in an expert.
Although Texas is home to hundreds of bee species, these varieties are the most common:
- Mason bees nest in wood tunnels, wood boards with drilled holes and even in soda straws.
- Yellow-faced bees sometimes nest in dead stems.
- Andrenid bees nest in sunny spots in your yard, such as in sandy soil, bare ground, and even under leaf material
- Bumblebees can nest in virtually any type of cavity, including abandoned rodent nests and upside-down pots.
- Carpenter bees build nests in wood, so you can find evidence of these insects on your fence posts, in and around your decks, and on the roof and eaves of your home.
- Squash bees typically nest in sandy soil, gardens and along pathways.
- Leafcutter bees nest in wooden tunnels and even on the ground
- Sweat bees make their homes in sunny areas with compact soil and bee nests often aren’t covered with vegetation.
Depending on where you are seeing bee activity around your home, an ABC pest control expert 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 too many different types of wasps, including paper wasps, 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 and decks and around wall cavities, bird boxes, sheds and garages.
Removing nests on your own may seem like the easiest form of wasp control but it can be potentially dangerous if you or a family member is allergic to a wasp’s painful sting.

Different species of bees and wasps build distinctive nests. They are often found under the eaves of a house, inside a shed or playscape, or under a patio or porch roof, typically in a corner. If they can find a way inside, they may nest in rafters or similar areas. Nests may also be found in trees and bushes, and sometimes in the ground. Some nests look like honeycombs, while others resemble clumps or mounds of dirt.
Bee and wasp nests start small, but can grow to enormous sizes if left unchecked. If you see bees or wasps on your property, check the areas described above for nests.
