Rentokil Pest Control strongly recommends you to contact an authorized beekeeper professionals if you have a bee infestation as bees are considered vital to a healthy environment. Moreover, attempting to remove a bee hive by yourself can be dangerous, especially if you or someone in your family is allergic to bee stings.
In addition to the threat of insect stings, bees can also attract secondary insects to invade your home due to the honey they produce.
Considering bees are highly beneficial to the environment, they should only be controlled when they pose a direct threat to your home or family.
Wasps make their nests from chewed wood pulp and saliva, giving them distinctive papery walls. Nests are usually built in sheltered spots with easy access to the outside. You can often find wasp nests in wall cavities, roof spaces, under eaves, in bird boxes, sheds or garages.
To locate a nest, carefully watch the flight path of the returning wasps.
The most effective way to get rid of wasps or hornets is to treat the main cause of the problem – the nest. Removing a nest can be very dangerous. Wasps inside the nest will feel threatened and often become aggressive. This could cause them to sting you and others as they defend their nest and young. To reduce the risk of stings to you and your family, arrange for a professional wasp nest treatment. This effective solution will eliminate the wasps and keep you safe from the threat of stings.
