Bees, Wasps, Hornets, and Yellow Jackets

Bees are an essential part of our ecosystem. But in some situations, bee removal is necessary. In addition, wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets can be dangerous … even life-threatening.

Croach® bee removal services are conducted by professionally-trained technicians with the equipment, materials, and knowledge to achieve results safely.

Do not attempt to eradicate, remove, or relocate a beehive on your own. Stay clear of bee swarms, hives, and nests, and use caution when working in your yard or otherwise enjoying the outdoors.

How to Avoid Getting Stung

Yellow Jacket - Bee Removal and Control - Croach Pest ControlWasps, Hornets, and Yellow Jackets can be particularly aggressive when they feel a threat to their nest, above or below ground.

Honeybees pose less aggression but may nest in areas dangerous to people, especially those with a bee venom allergy.

If honey bee removal is necessary, Croach® will always physically relocate the nest when possible. Spraying honeybee nests is a last resort.

Avoid getting stung when enjoying the outdoors by following these tips:

  • Wear light-colored clothing like white, khaki or beige. Bright colors attract bees, and dark colors resemble their predators.
  • Tight-fitting clothing is less accessible to bees than loose-fitting shirts and pants.
  • Eliminate the use of strong smells such as fragrant shampoo, perfumes or even chewing gum.
  • Avoid swatting at a bee. The movement makes it feel threatened. Stay calm and slowly, quietly move away.

Wasps and Bee Removal

Paper Wasp - Bee Removal and Wasp Control - CroachYellow Jackets, Hornets and Paper Wasps are the most common types of wasps you’ll probably encounter.

Wasp nests are often found on building overhangs, in walls or pipes, tree branches, attics, garages, and other high spaces.

But they are also known to build a nest under your lawn furniture or in a crevice of your home.

Yellow Jackets prefer to conceal their nests underground or in the hollows of playground equipment or similar structures. In late summer and throughout the fall, Yellow Jackets become far more aggressive as they forage for a less available supply of food.

These bees can sting multiple times if they feel their colony or survival is threatened. They may also swarm if you get too close to their nest or disturb it in some way. Some bees release a chemical when they sting that prompts others to sting as well.

If a colony of bees is creating a perilous or disturbing situation, contact Croach® for professional and safe pest control and bee removal services.
