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.
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. For this reason, they should be taken seriously as a threat if they set up a nest on your property.
We will send an inspector to your property who will check every nook and cranny where bees and wasps could be hiding and give you a treatment or removal recommendation. Our wasp & bee removal Orlando specialists will remove all nests. We also use this tool for other pest problems, such as spiders. For bees, your pest control specialist will recommend either treatment or relocation. We will treat the area where we removed the nest to ensure that there nothing is left behind. Like spiders, other bees may visit your home to build new hives, and if they do, call us right away so we can relocate them as well. When possible, bees will be relocated to a safe site.
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.
