How to get rid of bees

As beneficial as bees are for our environment, they can present a problem when nests and swarms appear in and around your property. This can cause major distractions in the environment and potential dangers to those who may have allergies. Bees can sting and depending on the severity, they can pose a whole set of health and safety risks for you and your property. 

Contact your Ehrlich bee specialist today for more information on how to get rid of bees on your home or commercial business.

How Ehrlich gets rid of bees

Our certified and trained stinging insect specialist will perform an inspection to properly identify the insect. Once the stinging insect is identified, treatment options will be discussed with the home or business owner. Ehrlich will make every effort to protect our customers. In some instances, it involves a beekeeper, or, it may involve eliminating a nest that poses a serious health threat.

How to get rid of bumble bees

Bumble bees are fuzzy and usually build their nests under or close the ground. This type of stinging insect is not does not typically sting humans or animals but will sting if they feel threatened. The bumble bee can sting other insects repeatedly without dulling their fang. Make no mistake; this insect can become aggressive when their hive is disturbed.

What you need to do

Once you have identified the nest, the best way to get rid of a bumble bee nest is to relocate the nest. However, there are treatment restrictions on controlling bumblebees in most states, so Ehrlich will work with a local bee keeper to help us remove the nest.

Getting rid of carpenter bees

Carpenter bees bore into wood and feed on nectar. These bees will make their nests in and around planks of wood laying around most construction sites, hence the name carpenter bees. An infestation is likely if the wood isn’t discarded, or if there is a lot of loose wood lying around.

What you need to do

Since carpenter bees like wood, we insert specialized treatments such as pesticides that come in dust, wettable powders and aerosol residual formulas targeted at the nest in the holes to eliminate the bees. We also recommend sealing the holes in the wood after eradication. We like to use wood putty to seal up the holes the bees bore into the wood.

How to get rid of ground bees

Ground bees are pollinators, so control measures should only be taken in cases of necessity. To deter them from nesting in your yard, you can use a sprinkler on the lawn during their nesting season. Cover exposed soil with turf to make it less hospitable for ground bees.

Although ground bees are unlikely to do much damage to your lawn, we understand that they can be cause for concern. If they are becoming an issue around your property or if you are concerned about health risks, an Ehrlich pest control specialist can provide solutions to eliminate the problem. When you contact us, we will inspect your property to better understand the problem and identify the best method of removing the bees. Get in touch with us today to get more information about ground bees and how Ehrlich can help.
