Eliminate Wasps & Bees From Your Monmouth County Property
Bees are a vital part of our ecosystem. Recent farming practices and extermination efforts have caused great concern recently as bee populations are diminishing and no longer able to pollinate crops the way they once did. However, bees, when they are in the wrong place at the wrong time, can be harmful to the humans that have begun a mission to protect them. That is why it is important to distinguish between the bees and other stinging insects before beginning an extermination program to eradicate them.
Our Wasp & Bee Removal Process
Identify The Stinging Insect
As soon as you hear the first buzz of a stinging insect, there is a temptation to panic. Where there is one, there are more creating a nest or swarm that may endanger your family, pets and property. It is important to not panic. The first step in getting rid of a swarm or nest is to identify the stinging insect that is buzzing around your patio, porch, pool, hot tub, or other enclosed area. Fortunately, the professional Pride Pest Service technicians are ready to assist at a moment’s notice. During our site visits to your home or business, your Pride Pest Service technician will speak with you about your observations. For your safety, family and pets need to remain indoors while the process is underway. Your Pride Pest Service technician will verify the swarm or nest and evaluate the extent of the infestation. They will also identify the particular type of insect that you are dealing with.
Formulate A Plan
Once your Pride Pest Service technician has identified the stinging insect, they will formulate a plan to eradicate or move the swarm, depending on the type of bee, wasp or stinging insect you are dealing with. Bees will need to be relocated to an appropriate place where they can continue to perform their function in the ecosystem. Wasps and other stinging insects, on the other hand, can be eradicated using a variety of insecticide, prevention and nest removal services.
Communication Is Key
Your Pride Pest Service technician will advise you of all actions taken to eradicate the infestation and what you can expect in the 24 to 48 hours immediately following treatment, such as the presence of straggler bees. They will also prepare you for any further colony removal services that may need to take place.
Colony Removal Service (Additional Service)
It is not enough to simply relocate the bees to their new home, away from people and animals that may otherwise interfere with their important role in pollination. Once they have been relocated, their prior home, including any honeycomb left behind, will need to be removed as well. Bees provide a natural cooling process to the honeycomb that keeps the wax solidified. Without the beating of their wings, the wax liquefies releasing the honey from its comb. Once honey runs down the walls of the honeycomb, it quickly molds and begins attracting ants, cockroaches, beetles, and other insects. Not to mention that moldy honey lets off an offensive odor. Other bees may even try to reinhabit the old honeycomb. Fortunately, Pride Pest Service has a colony removal service that takes care of the leftover honeycomb in a safe, effective manner that prevents secondary pests, mold, and re-infiltration.
Preventative Annual Bee Reduction Programs
Bee Scout TrapScout Traps:
Bee scouts perform a vital function to the hive. They are constantly scouting areas to relocate the queen, places that have pollen for honey and other bee colonies. If you trap the bee scout, you can effectively prevent a bee swarm from finding a home in your home. These pheromone-based traps attract and trap scout bees without endangering the rest of the hive.
Bee Swarm TrapSwarm Traps:
If a bee swarm has already made themselves at home on your property, it may be necessary to trap and relocate the entire swarm. These pheromone-based traps attract entire swarms and act as a containment system so the entire swarm of stinging insects can be relocated or exterminated as the case may be.
