Have you seen bees in this season? With the rain we had in the fall and a extremely fair winter season, flowers are starting to bloom early this year. Blooming flowers mean feeding time for bees. We’ve already had multiple calls regarding bee removal. Because of the danger of getting a bee sting, especially if you’re allergic to bees, you should definitely rely on the experts at Alpha Pest Control to help remove them from your home or business.
Some of the most common places you’ll find them are voids in and around your home. These little pests find any hole possible to set up camp. If you hear a buzzing in your wall, or if you see several bees around a tree or near your eaves, you probably have a swarm of bees in your home. Other great hiding places are those little irrigation boxes, backyard grills, block fences, under a shed, or even in an empty can.
Normally in Arizona, we see Africanized honey bees. They get nectar from the flowers in your yard or landscaped areas, and then they bring that back to the hive in order to produce honey. Contrary to what you may have heard, there are plenty of bees and they aren’t actually endangered. There is a virus that does kill bees and bee keepers have actively been working to eliminate this virus.
And, what about those big black bees? Those are carpenter bees and they aren’t prone to sting. They just seem scary. They drill holes in wood to make their homes.
Bees can be dangerous, so please don’t try to take care of bee pest control by yourself.
