Bee Friendly Pest Control
Bees form complex social colonies with a solitary fertile queen and are an extremely valuable pollinator. As such our primary concern as pest controllers when bee’s nest removal is necessary is to keep the bee hive alive and intact.
The key is to locate an experienced beekeeper who will take on the bee hive and look after it, and we can usually assist in this task.
Worker bees form the vast bulk of the colony and their numbers can make it to over 30,000 in the height of the season. Some workers remain with the queen to tend her, nourish the larvae, produce honey, produce new wax honeycombs for the larvae and safeguard the nest. More mature workers leave the nest in the hunt for sources of nectar and pollen. The queen may lay a million eggs in her lifetime.
Bees are normally not regarded as pests and (unless provoked) will not attack you. The sting of worker bees is barbed and can not be retracted, and carries a poison sac which continues to pump venom.
A tiny minority of individuals are hyper allergic to this venom and if a hive is in close proximity to people, for example, close to your property, or even in it (chimneys being a prime candidate), action may be needed to move it. This must only ever be attempted by an experienced pest controller or bee keeper, both of whom will put on special protective clothing.
Eradication is really a last resort for a pest controller, and will depend on his ability to remove the honeycomb and/or seal the nest after the work is completed. There is a big danger of secondary poisoning if robber bees access a previously poisoned nest and carry the insecticide back to their home colony.
How To Discriminate Between Bees and Wasps
Both bees and wasps are members of the Hymenoptera order of insects, but they can be easily distinguished from each other. Honey bees are usually dark brown, with a light orange/amber band and, notably, they are hairy. Wasps possess bright yellow and black stripes and have a narrow waist and smooth skin.
