Grand Prairie Bees, Wasps, & Hornets

Grand Prairie Honey Bee Removal

Grand Prairie Honey Bee Removal

Honey bees generally do not infest homes as much as other flying pests.  However, when they do, they can do quite a bit of damage.  Honey bees can chew through walls to get inside where they then begin storing large amounts of honey, which invites other bees and wasps.  Their waste will also attract moths and beetles.

If a bee colony is found within a building wall it must be removed.  Call Grand Prairie Pest Control for your honey bee removal.

Africanized Honey Bee Extermination

Africanized Honey Bee Removal

Because Africanized Honey Bees are more aggressive than standard bees, they are often feared more.  When a bee stings it will release an alarm pheromone that signals for others to come attack. With Africanized Honey Bees you are sometimes talking about the entire hive. This can be dangerous for anyone, not just with bee allergies.

Africanized Honey Bees will often find their way into a home through small holes in the exterior walls  of the home.  Once they are inside, like the standard honey bee they will create a nest.  You may also find their nests hanging in various places on your property.  Although generally found in the Southern parts of the United States, they are believed to be making their way North, so be on the lookout and protect your home by having Grand Prairie Pest Control seal your home against invaders.

Ground Nesting Bee, Wasp, and Hornet and Removal

Ground Wasp Nest Extermination

Generally people only think to look up when looking out for stinging insects.  Unfortunately, that will not protect them from those insects that have ground nests such as wasps, hornets or yellow jackets.  These insects will burrow into the ground with multiple openings or entry points.  These burrows are often found along the edge of a bank or along a line of trees.  Some types of ground bees, wasps, and yellow jackets are very dangerous to treat.  Because of this it is very important that you keep all children and pets away and do not try to remove them yourself.  Protect your family by calling Grand Prairie Pest Control to exterminate any ground nesting bees, wasps, hornets or yellow jackets.

Grand Prairie Carpenter Bee Extermination

Grand Prairie Carpenter Bee ExterminationCarpenter Bees can cause quite of damage due to their burrowing into the exposed dry wood of building decks, fascia and soffits, windowsills, railings, and wooden siding.  They bore holes that are about 3/8″ in diameter then build their nests inside the hollowed out space.  You should suspect a carpenter bee infestation if you find large amounts of sawdust and pollen below the hole which is being chewed and excavated.  Grand Prairie Pest Control will get rid of carpenter bees for you and seal up any areas where they have bored holes.
