A swarm of bees or wasps is usually a large collection of these stinging insects that are travelling from one location to another. In contrast, a hive or nest is a permanent home that bees and wasps will defend if threatened or disturbed. Contact A-Tex Pest Management as soon as you locate a nest or hive in or around your Austin property before these stinging insects becomes a danger to the health and safety of your family and friends.
While an individual bee sting is annoying, multiple bee stings from a disturbed nest or swarm, can be extremely dangerous and even life threatening. Bees, wasps, hornets and yellow jackets attack when they feel threatened or anticipate danger. Some individuals are allergic to bee stings and may require immediate medical treatment if stung. Multiple bee stings for the young, elderly and sick are also of particular concern. Bee control is important, but bee removal and relocation when possible is desirable. Bees are beneficial insects and are an essential ingredient to our environment as they help to pollinate many of the preferred fruits and vegetables we eat. Our societies could collapse if we eradicated bees altogether and this is why bee removal is more preferable than bee destruction.
Bee and Wasp Prevention and Protection
Stinging insect control and treatments include removing their hives and nesting sites from your property. Bees and wasps will often look for old tires, furniture and other piles of junk to establish a quiet and safe location in which to reside.
A-Tex Pest Management can advise you on how to prevent bees and wasps from infesting your property. We recommend that fine screens be installed around vents and openings to prevent these insects from making their homes around your pipes and gutters. Chimneys, walls and all plumbing should also be carefully sealed.
Bee and Wasp Control
A regular check and bee inspection around your property will reveal any attractants and opportunities that may allow stinging insects to build a hive or nest on your property. If you see bees or wasps entering or leaving an area of your home, you may be dealing with an infestation.
You should never disturb or hive or nest on your own. A-Tex Pest Management has the skills and experience necessary to remove bees from your property and protect your family, pets and visitors from the threat of bee and wasp stings.
