Bees Are Good For The Environment, Not Your Houston Yard
You've probably heard by now that we need to save the bees and that their dwindling populations could have a dire impact on the world if they should disappear entirely. Bees are very important for the process of pollination. So, what should you do when bees come into your yard? Do you have to just let them bee? Sorry. We couldn't resist. No, you don't have to put up with bees in your yard, or worse, inside a wall void of your home. There's a way to remove bees from your home and your yard. We'd like to tell you about it.
Comprehensive And Conscientious Bee Removal In Houston
You may wonder, "Do exterminators get rid of bees?" First of all, we're not technically exterminators. Modern Pest Control is a pest management company. We help home and business owners manage the threat of pests. The way we perform bee control at Modern Pest Control puts a high priority on the safety of bees. We use a process that is 100% eco-friendly and 100% bee-friendly.
Inspection — Bee control begins with a thorough inspection by a licensed and experienced professional. Our bee control specialists know how to locate and assess the level of infestation and determine an appropriate strategy for removal. Entry points will be located and methods will be used to determine the size of any hives present.
No removal — In some cases, no removal is necessary. Sometimes, bees rest in a yard as they are migrating. Or they belong to a local beekeeper. If either of these is the case, you may be able to wait a few hours or a few days and those bees will move on by themselves. Your bee control specialist will let you know if you have an infestation and guide you in steps you can take to reduce the likelihood that bees will rest in your yard again.
Bee removal — If a hive is present and bees must be removed, our bee control specialists wear protective gear and use vacuums that are specifically designed for capturing bees. The goal is to capture them and take them off your property and release them into rural areas where they won't be a threat to anyone. We try very hard to make sure all the bees live to pollinate another day. In some cases, we may even contact a local beekeeper to transport bees to their facilities. We determine this on a case-by-case basis.
When complications arise — If a hive is inside a wall, it can be difficult to deal with, but our technicians have the necessary skills to open up wall areas to gain access to beehives if necessary.
What we do with hives — When we address a bee infestation, we take care of the hive as well. Your bee control specialist will remove all of the honeycombs from your walls and get rid of as much residue as possible. That means you won't be left with a mess to clean up or the possibility that a bee was missed and that you might get stung while cleaning the honeycomb up on your own.
Prevent future infestation — Once the bees are gone, the hive has been removed, and the mess has been cleaned up, your bee control specialist will treat the void to prevent new bees from getting into the location and creating another hive.
If you have had bees visit your property and you don't want them to visit you again, you may wonder what will repel bees or what's the best bee repellent to use? We recommend natural products that contain eucalyptus oil, citronella, or peppermint oil. These will repel bees without exposing them to harmful chemicals.
