How Does The Infestation Work?

Bee infestations typically starts when swam of bees seeks a new nesting site, either because they outgrow their previous ones or the previous nests were attacked. The process starts with scout bees searching for suitable nesting sites, which could be hollow trees, wall cavities, etc. Once they found the suitable area, the swarm moves in and start building wax combs for honey storage and brood rearing.

As the queen lays eggs and the worker bees continue to expand the hive, the nest gets bigger and more bees population grows, leading to larger and larger infestations. Typically, a small bee colony shouldn’t pose a threat to people and residential areas but larger ones need to be taken care of, if it gets out of control.

Key Difference Between Bees and Wasps

  • Appearance: Bees are typically hairy, with stout bodies whereas wasps have smooth bodies and narrow waists, and longer legs.
  • Behaviour: Bees are generally non-aggressive whereas wasps are likly to sting multiple times.
  • Nesting: Bees build wax hives in protected areas whereas wasps construct paper-like nests from chewed wood fibers.

Elimination Tips

Small bee nests can be removed by yourself and easier compared to wasps. If you’re looking to remove wasp nests yourself, we highly recommend you take our wasp control service to because it’s more dangerous. Below are the steps to control and remove bees from your home and building:

  1. Wear long sleeves, pants, gloves, and a bee veil or hat before starting. Make sure to approach the nest at night or early morning when bees are less active.
  2. Start with the treatment and removal method. There are many methods to choose from (chemical and non-chemical). If you prefer the non-chemical ones, you can mix dish soap with water and spray the nest. The soap will suffocate bees and force them to leave the hive. Another option available is to use specialized vacuum to capture bees without harming them for relocation. 
  3. For the chemical methods, you can use insecticidal dust or pesticide available in the market to kill them.
