Bee Friendly Pest Control
Bees form complex social colonies with a single fertile queen and are an incredibly important pollinator. Because of this our primary priority as pest controllers when bee’s nest removal is required is to keep the bee hive alive and intact.
The key is to locate an experienced beekeeper who will receive the bee hive and take care of it, and we can in most cases assist in this process.
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, feed the larvae, produce honey, create new wax honeycombs for the larvae and secure the nest. More mature workers go out from 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 thought of as pests and (unless provoked) will not attack you. The sting of worker bees is barbed and can not be retracted, and holds 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 instance, nearby to your home, or even in it (chimneys being a prime candidate), action may be needed to move it. This should only ever be attempted by an experienced pest controller or bee keeper, each of whom will put on special protective clothing.
Eradication is very much a last resort for a pest controller, and will depend upon his ability to remove the honeycomb and/or seal the nest shortly after the work is completed. There is a significant risk of secondary poisoning if robber bees gain access to a previously poisoned nest and carry the insecticide back to their home colony.
How To Tell The Difference Between Bees and Wasps
Both bees and wasps are members of the Hymenoptera order of insects, but they can be readily distinguished from each other. Honey bees are commonly dark brown, with a pale orange/amber band and, importantly, they are hairy. Wasps possess bright yellow and black stripes and have a narrow waist and smooth skin.
