Bee Control, Bee Removal, Bee Relocation And Bee Hive Removal &/or Extermination Services

Honey BeeHoney Bee

Honey Bees are the most common and well known species of bee. These insects are responsible for pollination, bees wax, and honey. Unfortunately Honey Bees are also widely feared due to their ability to sting. Honey Bees are more important to the local ecosystem than many people realize. Honey Bees are the most productive pollinator for local plants, flowers and agricultural crops. Without Honey Bees the loss of food sources would be devastating. This is why pest control services have to be incredibly careful when it comes to removing bees.

When you are wondering how to get rid of bees without detrimental side effects to the local ecosystem, contact ICU Pest Control. We use a eco friendly honey bee extractor that will relocate the queen and the hive without extermination. Depending on the species of bee in question will determine the plant or flower these bees will forage for nectar or pollen as some bees are opportunistic foragers gathering nectar and pollen from a wide range of plants and flowers, while other bees are oligolectic foragers gathering nectar and pollen from one to a few species of plants and flowers making all species of bees important to their local ecosystem and the planet.

Carpenter BeeCarpenter Bee

Carpenter Bees are among the most common and beneficial species of bees. These insects are feared by humans but are very beneficial to our existence. Carpenter bees are pollinators that pollinate local plants, flowers, and crops. Without these insects many of our plants, flower species, and crops would cease to exist. Carpenter bees resemble bumblebees more than they resemble honey bees. This species builds their nests in trees or wooden supports (which gives them the name) by excavating the wood.

Unlike other species of bee, Carpenter Bees drill single holes into wood to house their young. They do not build large hives so there is no need for large bee hive removal. The holes that are excavated are perfectly round and no less than 1 inch deep. These tunnels will be enlarged when it is time to breed and raise young. Each female can excavated up to 8 holes for their young. Even though the damage to a wood frame can become extensive, Carpenter Bees are incredibly important to the ecosystem. Like Honey Bees, Carpenter Bees are also pollinators. In order to learn how to get rid of Carpenter Bees without harming these helpful insects, ICU Pest Control can help.

Honey Bee Control Recommendations

  • Honey bees can be dangerous and to some people deadly, any and all honey bee hive removal and/or honey bee hive relocation should be carried out by a trained bee control specialist or experienced honey bee keeper.
  • In some situations it is much to dangerous or not possible to relocate the colony of honey bees which makes extermination necessary and the only option to protect your family and property.

Carpenter Bee Control Recommendations

  • Varnishing or painting of wood surfaces makes areas less appealing to carpenter bees to aid with carpenter bee control and prevention.
  • Seal all cracks and crevices to prevent carpenter bees from using these areas to provide cover for their holes.
  • Starting carpenter bee control and/or carpenter bee prevention, in spring before they start nesting will increase success.
  • When filling holes for carpenter bees it is important not to plug holes of any active nest sights until the problem has bee solved or the carpenter bees will chew themselves a new exit in a different location
