Although bees and other stinging insects offer a large benefit to our ecosystem, not to mention their honey is delicious, it doesn’t mean you want them in or around your house. They are a risk to the health and safety of your children and can do a considerable amount of damage to your house and property.
If you notice bees swarming around your house or around your children’s play areas, chances are they’ve taken up your residence as a nesting ground. When dealing with bees, it’s always better to act sooner rather than later. To get your free quote for bee removal call Senske at or request a free estimate.
For your own safety, you should not attempt to remove bee hives on your own. Fifty to sixty percent of stinging attacks and deaths happen because of people trying to DIY (do it yourself) bee removal. Novice bee removal attempts involve blocking the entrance to the bee hive. This only creates a bigger problem and will aggravate the colony. An aggravated colony can become very aggressive. Using bee repellent or bee killer will also exasperate the problem.

When you call us to remove an invading bee hive, we will remove the nest, the beeswax and the honey, and will also make sure the area is clean of honey residue so bees aren’t attracted to return.

It’s especially important to check for bees if you have children. One of the most common incidences of stinging attacks is due to accidental nest disturbances, caused by children playing in the yard or around their property and surprising ground or hanging nests. Because children are smaller and have less body weight, they are prone to be more affected by a bee sting. Statistics have taught us the kill ratio for bee attacks. A person can die from getting 10 stings per pound of their body weight. A child is at a much greater risk of dying from a stinging attack simply because their body weight is lower. Considering bee hives usually have between 10,000 to 40,000 bees, it’s IMPORTANT to remove bee hives and wasp nests from your property as soon as you recognize their existence.

Not only are bee hives dangerous to children and pets, they can be destructive to houses, fences, and wood structures on your property. It’s common for bees to take up residence in an unvented chimney or within the walls or ceilings of a house. Bees can damage houses and property by both their nesting habits and their honey production. When creating nests, they burrow into wood, which can immediately pose a problem to the structure of a house. More slowly, bees can cause damage by producing honey within the walls of a house. One beehive can produce up to 80 pounds of honey!
The most common types of bees in the western US are Africanized honey bees, European honey bees, carpenter bees and bumblebees. Wasps are different than bees and have distinct behaviors. Although there are 20,000 different species of wasps, the most common types of wasps in the western US are paper wasps, yellow jackets and hornets.
The Africanized honey bee is known more generally as the killer bee. Although it is a honey bee, it is more aggressive than the European honey bee. The killer bee is brown with black stripes and just under an inch long.
Killer bees have only resided in the United States since 1990. At their arrival, they lived in warmer temperatures in the south and have been migrating to colder destinations in the north. Although at first it was thought that they could not survive in colder temperatures, it’s now apparent killer bees can survive anywhere as long as they have food.
Killer bees are known for swarming and aggressive behavior. They will attack if they feel threatened or if their nest is destroyed. They can only sting one time and will die immediately after they lose their stinger into a person or animal.
The European honey bee, most commonly just called the honey bee, resides all over the United States. Honey bees provide the most pollination out of all bee types. They live year-round but are more dormant in the winter than in the warmer months. Honey bees that are born in the summer months have a lifespan of just 6 weeks whereas honey bees born in the winter have a lifespan of four months. There are between 5,000 to 50,000 honey bees per hive. When they migrate they produce a large swarm, however this is rare to see.
Honey bees are not as aggressive as other bee types. Like the Africanized honey bee, when it stings a person or an animal, it loses its stinger and dies. If you get stung, make sure to remove the stinger immediately. Poison from the stinger continues to be released up to one minute after the event.
Carpenter bees look like bumblebees and measure around an inch long. Unlike the honey bee, carpenter bees nest underground. Carpenter bees are the most-likely bee candidate to invade your walls and destroy parts of your house by their chewing and burrowing. Oftentimes carpenter bees are the hardest to remove because they can hide in hard-to-get places. In this case, it’s extremely important to call a bee removal professional to remove the hive.

Bumblebees are large and round and appear fuzzy. They have smaller nest sizes and usually will include less than 50 bees per nest. Because bumblebees don’t have a barbed stinger, they can sting repeatedly and not die. If stung by a bumblebee, there will not be a stinger left inside of you. Although bumblebees aren’t normally aggressive, if their nest or colony is threatened they will attack.
Bees are most active in late summer and early fall. The easiest way to remove bees is if you can catch them in the springtime before they signal for their entire colony to follow them to your property. It’s much easier to remove 100 bees than 45,000! Remember, when dealing with bees, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Help protect your home and your family from stinging insects.
