If you first understand what kind of bees you’re dealing with, you can determine the best plan to remove them and prevent them from coming back. When possible, OIRC works with local beekeepers to remove beneficial honeybees. Other bees that may be aggressive or destructive to your property may require extermination.
If you’re worried about bees making themselves at home in your residential or commercial space, there are a few things you can do.
Painting or staining wood helps to keep Carpenter Bees away. They typically do not like to drill into treated wood.
Other bees are drawn to sugary foods and drinks. Ensure your home or commercial building doesn’t have open trash bins around to draw these bees.
It’s not typically recommended to remove bees on your own because of upsetting the bees and causing them to sting. Professionals are arm with the knowledge and tools to get the job done right. If you have a bee problem, call OIRC today to see how we can help!
If you begin to notice round holes in the eaves or other wooden structures of your home, you may have a Carpenter Bee problem. You’ll also likely experience they flying aggressively around you when you come near these holes. The males of these species can’t sting you, but the females can and will if they are provoked.
