Don’t Let Bees Control Your Yard

Bee removal can be a sticky subject, so any bee problems on your property should undoubtedly be left up to the professionals at D-Bug Pest Control. If you haven’t heard the latest pest control practices for bee removal, or about the bees you see where you live in, here’s the buzz:

Honey Bees 

Honey bees do a lot more than just make honey. They actually pollinate approximately 80 percent of your food, making them an extremely important part of the ecosystem, as well as your next meal.

Honey bees can, however, become a problem if they get too close or take up too much space on your property. They do sting, but only once as this defense is fatal to them. More commonly, honey bees become problematic when they move into a chimney or attic, because their colonies can survive for many years.

Honey bees should never be exterminated, only humanely moved to another place if they have become bothersome or dangerous to you or your family. At D-Bug Pest Control in Latrobe, we know that honey bee removal can be messy and needs careful consideration, so we are here to help.

Carpenter Bees

Carpenter bees may live a solitary lifestyle, but they can certainly cause as much trouble as an entire colony. Female carpenter bees can cause major structural damage to the wooden parts of your home by boring holes to lay eggs. If carpenter bees have damaged wood around your Latrobe property, calling a pest professional like D-Bug Pest Control is the best option.

Female carpenter bees can sting, although they do it rarely. Male carpenter bees, despite lacking a stinger, are very aggressive and can startle you and your family.

These bees feed on nectar, making them beneficial to the environment despite the danger they pose to the structures of your home. Like other bees, carpenter bees need to be carefully removed from your property by a bee removal professional.
