Think you’re living with bees in the walls?

Every once in awhile homeowners will find themselves petrified to discover insect nests within their homes. In some cases, bees in the walls can be heard buzzing within your home. Naturally, getting rid of such an insect infestation will immediately become a homeowner’s first priority. Certainly, only professionals should attempt such a potentially dangerous extraction method. Pest control companies and/or beekeepers should be notified to ensure that any bee infestations within your home/business are removed safely.

Many are aware of the fact that bee populations have been dropping worldwide during the past ten years or so. With recent growth, it’s still important to protect the lives of bees in most scenarios, even when they are buzzing behind your walls.

If the bees in the walls happen to be easily accessible, then our beekeepers will try to extract the bees in order to put them to economic use. If these insects are a clear danger to house-dwellers, or hard to access, our trained pest control professionals will make your house safe once again. In all cases, a pest professional should be notified first so that the type of bees invading a home can be properly identified.

Identifying the different types of bees in the walls.

Different types of bees should be approached and handled accordingly. For instance, yellow jackets look like bees, but they are actually aggressive wasps. Therefore, handling yellow jacket infestations are handled in a manner quite different from bee infestations. When the bees in the walls are in hard to reach areas, plumbers or an electrician can often pinpoint their location. After their location is identified, a pest control professional will handle the identification process and possible eradication if necessary.
