Identification is Your First Priority

To determine whether or not you have a bee infestation, you must first figure out if you are actually dealing with bees and not some other stinging insect. While often confused with bees, wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets are just some of the nastier insects that can be mistaken for bees.

Honeybees and Bumblebees

The different bee varieties all have different nesting behaviors. Bumblebees and honeybees are social creatures that create massive communal hives with large honeycombs and expansive nesting galleries. most honeybee swarms are not dangerous if they are left alone and kept at a distance.

Bumblebees, on the other hand, often nest in the ground, but can be found above ground near decks and patio areas. They will sometimes build nests under roof beams and in attics. If disturbed, bumblebees will "buzz" in louder volume and will aggressively defend their nests. Honeybee hives can remain active for years, while bumblebee colonies typically die off each year.

Wasps and Hornets

Although some species of wasps can be bothersome and dangerous to people, the majority of the species are non-stinging and solitary. Additionally, wasps are vital in the control of other pest insects because they eat almost all of them.

Although helpful to the environment, wasps and hornets can also be extremly defensive and dangerous when encountering people. Wasp infestations are fairly common in residential areas. If wasps are flying near your home, there is most likely a nest located nearby. If you are able to locate it, our pest removal specialists can professionally remove the hive or nest without you risking a painful sting.

We don't like the household presence of hostile bees any more than you do, which is why we've mastered the ways of pest extraction and removal. For comprehensive pest control solutions, look no further than Harpoon Pest Solutions!
