Our Bee Treatment Service
Honey Bees are true bees and are vital pollinator’s that are important to Ohio’s agricultural success. As such, they shouldn’t be harmed unless it’s unavoidable. Furthermore, bees only attack people when their territory is threatened. The problem is these stings are painful and can be deadly if the person being stung is allergic and goes into anaphylaxis shock. So if you have bees or hives on your property, you’ll want to get rid of them as soon as possible! We most often refer customers to the Miami Valley Beekeepers Association to attempt to remove honey bees safely. If extermination is unavoidable, please give us a call. Carpenter Bees are a common seasonal problem here in Ohio that can cause unsightly damage to your home. Dayton Pest Control can quickly resolve this issue with a simple one-time treatment!
Our Unique Approach To Bee Removal
Calling a licensed professional to help you get rid of bees is your best option, even if you feel comfortable removing them on your own. Bees make nests in tricky spots like the ground, your home’s walls, and other hard-to-reach areas, plus getting rid of bees depends on the time of the year.
1. BEE INSPECTION
We’ll inspect different areas of your home, including the ground, grass clumps, and structures on your property, to locate each nest and identify the bee species. This step allows us to properly treat and remove the nests we find during our inspection.
2. LIQUID BEE TREATMENT
We’ll use an aerosol or chemical application to knock down the nest. This leaves a residual that lasts for 8+ weeks. For severe infestations, we may need to repeat this process a few times to ensure your bee problem is taken care of.
3. DUSTING BEE TREATMENT
Occasionally, we’ll apply dust in the hive’s opening, ensuring everything inside dies, including larvae and immature bees. We’ll also use dust around the top of the hive to prevent bees from coming out of other locations.
4. BEE EXCLUSION Recommendations
After the bees are gone, we’ll provide recommendations on areas to seal to prevent future bee habitation. The best time to do this is in the early Fall months, so bees don’t chew new openings in other locations.
