Don’t Try to Remove the Hive Yourself!

Homeowners often misidentify wasps or yellow jackets for bees. A pest control specialist from our team will perform a thorough inspection to confirm the presence of bees, find the hives, and map out an effective removal and protection plan. Bee sprays will only provide temporary relief and wives-tales of natural remedies such as vinegar or smoke do little to nothing at all. Full removal of the hive and all honeycomb is required to keep away new swarms of bees and other pests such as rats and mice. A DIY hive removal is extremely dangerous and should not be attempted by anyone other than a trained professional.

While bees pose only slight risk to human health, it is still not safe to let a hive thrive near your home or office. Contact the team at Champion Pest & Termite Control to help keep your yard bee-free and shielded for the future.

Have You Noticed an Increase in Bees Around Your Home?

We love honey bees and understand how incredibly important they are to the environment and ecosystem. In fact, one-third of the food you eat grows because of bee pollination. There are over 500 species of bees in Ohio. Bees might live in large hives made of honeycomb or they may make nests inside tree trunks and they can even live underground in your yard. A single beehive can contain up to 50,000 individuals. Homeowners are usually alerted to a hive by the sounds of buzzing and sighting of bees.

To identify and remove bees safely and protect your home for the future, you need to contact the expert team at Champion Pest & Termite Control.

Are Bees Harmful?

Are Bees Harmful?

Bees are not generally aggressive, but they can still be very dangerous to humans. About 1% of children and 3% of adults have severe allergic reactions leading to anaphylaxis. In the spring and summer, you may see large black bees that appear to charge at humans; these are male carpenter bees. Although the males do not have stingers and the females rarely sting unless provoked, these bees pose a big risk to your home.

½ holes in the softwoods of your home (e.g. siding, eaves, attics, walls, and decks) along with piles of sawdust mean you have a carpenter bee infestation. Although only a few holes may appear, carpenter bees create tunnel systems inside wooden beams and boards, weakening their structural integrity from within. These holes are used for shelter and to lay eggs. They also invite other pests and even insect-eating birds such as woodpeckers, which can increase the damage to your home.

Bee Control FAQs

What Month Do Bees Come Out?

Great question! Bees typically come out during the spring months. They become active during these months because of the warmer temperatures and the flowering of plants.

What Causes Bee Infestations?

Bees look for a new place to live in spots that are familiar to them. If there have been beehives in your area before, or if there were beehives that weren’t properly removed, bees may take up residence.

Can Exterminators Get Rid of Bees

With a trained professional, yes. The only way to properly remove bees is by removing the hive entirely. It’s important to consult an expert when doing this, as you don’t want to put yourself in harms way or have the chance of the bees returning.

How Much Does It Cost for an Exterminator to Get Rid of Bees?

It will depend on the expertise of the company you choose. A safe estimate is anywhere between $100-$500, and sometimes even more. It will all depend on the complexity of the job and your specific needs.
