A bee and wasp removal are one of the most important chores for anyone who lives in a home with honey bees or other hive colonies. Not only do these pests cause significant property damage, they also can be dangerous. Honey bees can be aggressive, and if not removed properly, could harm people, animals, or even buildings. Wasp nests, however, are not generally aggressive. In fact, they can sometimes be beneficial. When people think about a wasp nest, they usually picture a huge nest full of winged creatures that are full of hundreds of small black flying insects. These are indeed the most common types of nests, but there are other types of wasp nests as well, some of which are more attractive to potential insect pests.
The appearance of wasp nests is very different from those of other types of nests. Carpenter bees, yellow jackets, and queen bees all have a long thin upper body that ties into the thorax and ends in a short, stubby abdomen. In contrast, the abdomen and thorax of wasps are relatively short. This style makes wasp nests more aerodynamic and quicker than most bees. Because wasp nests are smaller than bee and wasp nest boxes, they also tend to be more difficult to detect.
When it comes to wasp removal, there are several things to consider when choosing the right removal method. First, you should check to see what type of wasp is nesting in your home or business. If you suspect wasp activity, the first thing to do is to see how many wasp eggs you have and if they are all still developing. It may take several wasp eggs to produce one fully mature wasp. If you have had wasp removal before, you will be able to tell if a nest box is full of eggs by the shape of the entrance holes and whether or not they appear to be coming apart.
Once you have determined the size of the wasp, you can begin your search for the nest. After locating the nest itself, you can either remove the whole wasp colony or the individual wasp eggs. If you choose to remove the entire wasp colony, be sure to remove all eggs and larvae. The best option is to do this in a professional bee and wasp removal service, because removing them by hand is very dangerous and can often lead to an accidental death.
Once you have removed the eggs and larvae, it’s time to determine which type of wasp you are dealing with. Yellow jacket wasp nests can be dangerous to humans or animals, so it is advisable to call an expert removal company that specializes in this type of work. Carpenter bees are not aggressive but do sting to defend their hive. They can be quite aggressive and can even sting when threatened, but they are no more aggressive than any other type of wasp. Honey bees have very little aggression and will usually move out of the way.
The best method to deal with queen bees is to remove all of the wasp or honey bee colony, including the nest box, while leaving the bees in place. If you do not know what to do with the colony, call an exterminator to come and handle the problem for you. By using a specialized bee and wasp removal service, you can prevent future damage to your home or business.
