Swarming season may be the busiest time of the year for bees but for humans, it is the most treacherous. Typically, swarming is at its peak from September to December. A regular event in the reproductive life of bees, a swarm typically begins when the weather is on the sunny side, during late morning to early afternoon. Warmer temperatures and a spike in the nectar and pollen in the environment triggers the colony’s population to multiply. It is this overcrowded situation in the hive that leads the bees to reproduce and swarm.
What Makes Us Different?
What separates our professional pest control services from the rest is our integrated approach.
This enables us to offer a variety of methods in getting rid of your bee problems, namely:
- Examination – closely inspecting and carefully evaluating the situation
- Education – informing homeowners about bee behaviour, nutrition and habits
- Documentation – formulating a plan covering preliminary inspection and follow-up services
- Deliberation – determining the best products to use for pest extermination
- Separation – taking out spots where bees are likely to nest and reinforce structures and surfaces with anti-bee sprays and solutions
- Sanitation – maintaining cleanliness of the area and minimising sources of food for bees
Removing bee nests is an extremely risky task. If you attempt to do it on your own, you are putting yourself in danger. If you try hosing them down or throwing objects their way, you will likely get stung in the process.
Locating swarms and removing them yourself is always a no-go. We recommend hiring professional bee catchers to do the job for you. With state-of-the-art equipment, they directly apply a special kind of bee treatment into the wall to solve the problem. The next time you find a swarm, leave it to your local honey bee removal expert to remove the threat to you, your family and pets. Call Masters pest control for eco-friendly solutions to bee hive removal.
Difference Between Bees and Wasps
From afar, bees and wasps look a lot alike. To the untrained eye, they might even look the same. But while bees and wasps are both classified under the Hymenoptera order of insects, they share far more differences than similarities.
- Bees only bite once as their stinger is left in the skin of the victim. Wasps, on the other hand, can sting repeatedly. They also emit certain pheromones to alert others in the nearby nest to attack. As far as venom goes, bees and wasps are the total opposite of each other. Bee stings are acidic in nature, whereas wasp stings are alkaline.
- Another thing is that bees usually attack when they are provoked or feel threatened. Wasps, however, are more aggressive and attack when they sense sudden movement.
