Bee Friendly Pest Control
Bees form complex social colonies with a solitary fertile queen and are an exceptionally important 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 accept the bee hive and look after it, and we can in most cases assist in this process.
Worker bees form the vast bulk of the colony and their numbers can get 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 guard the nest. More mature workers go out from the nest in the search 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 holds a poison sac which continues to pump venom.
A tiny minority of people are hyper allergic to this venom and if a hive is in close proximity to people, for instance, close to your property, or even in it (chimneys being a prime candidate), action may be required to relocate it. This should only ever be undertaken by an experienced pest controller or bee keeper, both of whom will wear 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 main task is done. There is a significant risk of secondary poisoning if robber bees gain access to a previously poisoned nest and bring 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 normally dark brown, with a pale orange/amber band and, importantly, they are hairy. Wasps have bright yellow and black stripes and have a narrow waist and smooth skin.
