We have answered several of the most frequently asked questions we receive about bee, wasp, and hornet removal below, but please call our friendly staff if you have any additional inquiries.
What are Africanized bees?
Africanized bees are also known as killer bees because they are prone to attacking humans who approach their hives. They are found on every continent except Antarctica, but they have a dense population in the Southwest because of its desert climate. You may find these bees nesting in your home, mailbox, rotted logs, or other areas of your yard. They reproduce rapidly and can become a danger to you and your pets. Not only can they inflict pain by stinging you, but many people are allergic to them. Africanized bees are indistinguishable from European honey bees, so call IPM for bee control services whenever you notice a hive.
Why do bees often return to the same place in my yard?
Bees need food and water sources to survive. If you have an area in your home or yard where they can thrive despite the dry climate, they may eventually return. IPM’s services eradicate them for an entire season, and we can also suggest ways to minimize the chances of subsequent infestations. However, without professional attention, you are vulnerable to annual bee infestations at your Phoenix house.
How do you get rid of bees?
IPM will visit your home to determine what type of bees has begun nesting at your residence. We will employ a different approach for Africanized bees than we would European honey bees. We use organic products that are safe for you and your family to eradicate these insects from your property. Our team will use protective equipment to avoid being stung, which is one of the leading arguments in favor of not attempting to eliminate bees on your own. We will also provide solutions to ensure the problem does not recur. Once we treat a hive, it typically takes two to three days for the entire colony to die.
What is the difference between wasps and hornets?
Wasps encompass a wide range of stinging insects that are native to Phoenix, AZ. They include bees, yellow jackets, and ants. The largest species of wasp is a hornet. It can reach up to 1.5” in length and has two pairs of wings. Wasps are attracted to your home because of an abundance of food sources, such as sugary drinks, open garbage cans, and uneaten treats. They will establish a nest in the area and become frequent visitors. Hornets typically build their nests in trees or shrubs, and they are very aggressive in their protection of them. Hornets will attack as soon as they sense danger, and they pose a more significant threat to humans than wasps or bees because they have a higher concentration of venom. Furthermore, hornets can sting repeatedly – unlike bees, which can sting only once before dying – so their attacks could become deadly. Because wasps and hornets pose such a risk, it is essential to rely on a professional like IPM for pest control services.
