If your home has been infested by carpenter bees, hornets, yellow jackets or wasps, you want to know what to do. Before you figure that out, you probably should know more about what not to do when attempting to handle the problem. Here are two things to keep in mind.
Drop the Spray
Yes, you can easily find bug spray formulations designed to kill bees and wasps at a grocery or home supply store. No, you do not necessarily want to run out and clear the shelves with your bulk purchase of sprays thinking the more you spray the more you will get rid of these somewhat frightening creatures, especially Africanized killer bees.
If you have bee sting allergies or someone in your home does, you have a need to act fast. Bee sting allergies are no joke and can sometimes cause deadly anaphylactic shock. Still, you can be doing more harm than going bringing home a huge haul of bee spray.
Instead of a bee spray doing its job off killing them so you can remove a nest safely, it can cause them to attack. This is because some types of bees or wasps get angry. This is especially true of honey bees. Are you unsure of what types of bees are infesting your home? Then, unless you only have a few bees or wasps coming near your outdoor areas ñ perhaps to enjoy a barbecue you are hosting? – drop the spray for your safety and for that of your loved ones.
Florida Bee Removal
Call your bee removal professionals for help. They can tell you what to do while you wait for them to arrive. In most instances, you may be told to avoid the part of the home where the nests are or to keep doors, windows and screens shut to keep them from getting indoors.
Another tactic that many homeowners take in an attempt to stop a bee or other pest infestation from growing is patching up holes in walls. Sometimes hornets, yellow jackets and the like make nests inside walls where there is no insulation.
A homeowner thinks that they can spray the area, then follow up killing the pests for good by cutting off their ability to reproduce. They patch up the wall and close it off figuring that will solve the problem.
Again, it is a better idea not to take these steps because you may not have gotten to the real source of the problem. Other nests could exist in high or hard to see areas. Call your bee removal company for an immediate visit to assess the situation and make a recommendation for your specific situation.
Finally, while honey bees can be among the most dangerous when provoked, they are here to help make honey. The fact that they are growing nearly extinct is a problem for humans. This is why you should never try and handle any type of bee infestation in your home on your own. Call the bee removalists for humane removal solutions.
