The Trouble

  • Bee stings can cause severe allergic reactions

  • They return every year if the queen isn’t removed

  • Thorough inspection to locate all hives and entry points
  • Gentle vacuuming to safely extract the queen, workers, honey, and combs
  • Strategic use of approved sprays, dusts, foams near hives/nests when needed
  • Sealing cracks and crevices they use to enter and establishing future population

About Bees

There are over 20,000 known species of bees globally. Most species don’t have painful stings or live in hives. In our region, the main ones that nest in and around homes are European, Bumble, Carpenter, and Paper wasps.

Common Signs of Infestation

  • Buzzing sounds coming from vents, chimneys
  • Small piles of wood shavings or sawdust on the ground or windowsills
  • Entering small cracks or crevices around your property
  • Swarms gathering on shrubs, or under roof overhangs

Our services are designed to safeguard your trees and plants. We want to create a harmonious space for you to enjoy all the places your garden has to offer.

Difference Between a Swarm, Nest, and Hive

Swarm – A large group of worker bees surrounding and protecting the queen while scout searches for a new nesting site. Swarms cluster on tree branches, bushes, houses, etc temporarily.

Nest – The structure bees build using wax combs to contain their eggs, larvae and food stores. Nests can be exposed or enclosed in cavities.

Hive – An enclosed structure made for housing domesticated bee colonies, usually made by beekeepers. Hives contain removable frames and protections from the elements.

Common Types

Honey Bees

Produce and store excess honey. Live together in hives of up to 60,000 workers with one queen. Include various types like Italian, Carniolan, Buckfast.

Bumble Bees 

Nest in small population underground. Make little honey. Fuzzy pollinators best known for their loud buzzing during flight.

Carpenter Bees

Solitary bees that drill holes in wood, logs, and concrete to lay their eggs inside. Resemble bumble bees.

Mason Bees 

Named for their skill in building nests using mud, pollen, or chewed leaves. Important early spring pollinators. Generally docile and non-aggressive.
