Bee Friendly Pest Control
Bees form complex social colonies with a single fertile queen and are an exceptionally valuable pollinator. As such our first concern 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 accept the bee hive and maintain 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, feed the larvae, produce honey, produce new wax honeycombs for the larvae and defend the nest. Older 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 generally 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 carries 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 house, or even in it (chimneys being a top 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 wear special protective clothing.
Eradication is really a last option for a pest controller, and will depend on his ability to remove the honeycomb and/or seal the nest shortly after the main task is completed. There is a significant risk of secondary poisoning if robber bees access a previously poisoned nest and bring 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 usually 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.
