Bees and wasps

While bees are important for our ecosystem and food production, they can pose a risk to humans if they feel threatened or provoked. To stay safe from bees, it’s important to avoid disturbing their nests or hives, and to stay calm and still if a bee is flying around you. Avoid wearing strong fragrances or bright, floral clothing that may attract bees.

Do you know that?

Bees lies in their ability to communicate with one another through complex dances and pheromones. This enables them to work together efficiently, gather nectar and pollen, and ultimately produce honey.

Like all other invaders, bees and wasps do serve helpful purposes. Without honey bees, more than half of our fruit and vegetable crops wouldn’t exist. And, if not for wasps, those crops would be eaten by other insects before we got the chance to enjoy them. 

Even though they serve a remarkable purpose, bees and wasps can be dangerous. Bees can become aggressive when challenged. Some wasps are even aggressive by nature and will sting without being provoked. 

It is always recommended that if you see a nest near or on your property, you should call a pest management professional right away! Attempting to treat the problem yourself can be dangerous.

How can Pest Guru solve my bee or wasp problem?

Our trained specialists will start with a thorough inspection of your property to identify the root problem. We’ll remove active nests and treat potentially troublesome areas with material to reduce the chance for future nest building. 

The outdoor formulated liquid spray we use is a product the EPA labels low-risk, meaning it’s safe for kids, pets and all beings that are not insects. These products are designed to have the wasp come in contact with the residual, causing the wasp to pick up the residual and carry it back to the colony (if there is one), where it can infect up to 50 other wasps. Those 50 wasps can infect up to 50 wasps of their own. This results in very quick extermination, typically taking 1-10 days. We will spray all the gutters, soffits, roof vents and any other areas where wasps are most active. 

Homeowners typically get nests in the same areas every year—our solutions help make sure that doesn’t happen in the future!
