One of the important elements of bee control is to initially destroy the source, which is the nest. Aerosol bee sprays can be used to effectively take down bees around the nest. However, applying small amounts of dust/powder pesticides directly into the nest will provide better control. In some cases, the attempt alone to destroy a nest can potentially become a health risk. Did you know around 100 people die every year from bee stings? Majority die due to allergic reaction to the venom of the sting. Close to 1 percent of the nation’s population is allergic to bee venom. Those who are allergic should always carry epinephrine injection kits at all times, especially during the summer. Be careful! However, if a nest is discovered in the vicinity of humans posing a stinging threat, especially those of social species, it must be taken down immediately. A nests of bumble bees, carpenter bees, yellow jackets, wasps and mud daubers should always be approached with caution. Heavy clothing or a bee suit should be when attempting to take down a nest. The best time of year to control bees is during the month of June which is when colonies are still in the beginning stage of construction. In addition, the best time to control bees is during the night, when they are less active.
Bee nest removal or the process of getting rid of bees is fairly simple. At the entrance of the bee nest, apply aerosol bee spray into the opening during a late evening (refer to label directions). If you do not see any activity the next day, the extermination was successful. If activity is still noticeable, then repeated day-to-day treatment should be applied until they are all dead. If there is direct nest access, a dust pesticide is recommended. If possible, an injection of the material into the nest should suffice in treatment and total control. It may be necessary to drill into the structure to facilitate the injection. Use extreme caution when performing bee control from a ladder. Contact us if assistance is needed.
