Bee Source Inspection

Knowing how to properly inspect and determine the source of a bee infestation is crucial to being able to maintain a pest-free environment. Bees are winged insects that can be black or brown with red, yellow or even blue stripes, and there are several different types, including Megachile pluto, the largest and reported to be 3.9 cm long, and Perdita minima, the smallest at under 2 mm long. Common types found in and around your home include the carpenter bee and honey bee.

It’s also important to note that hives filled with honey inside wall voids can ferment over time and attract other insects, damage support structures or stain surrounding structures. Be sure to carefully identify the particular species invading your home so as not mistake them for wasps, which require different treatment methods. If you have a bee problem, contact Safeway for a bee inspection, and our team will find the source of the infestation in order to move forward with the best treatment plan.

Bee Treatment Options

Bee infestations are a nuisance. Not properly addressing the problem early on can lead to more complicated and expensive treatments and can even become a danger to you and your home. Safeway’s licensed pest specialists are able to properly identify the type of bee infestation you’re dealing with to determine the best treatment plan moving forward. If you currently have a carpenter bee infestation, it is crucial to seek out professional treatment as soon as possible. Why?

Female carpenter bees drill holes into any wooden structure they can find to lay their eggs, which makes them a prime suspect for invading your home. Using residual insecticides to spray the areas where the bees might drill their holes is an effective treatment plan, and the best times to spray are early spring before infestation starts or during active infestation. Other options include treating existing holes with insecticide dusts and plugging the holes after the bees have been exterminated, while a non-chemical approach requires the use of carpenter bee traps or natural repellents.

Bee Prevention

Bees entering your home can be a nuisance, and you might be wondering how it happened or how to prevent it in the future. Bees tend to find their way into homes in search of a place to nest, and since they prefer dark and protected areas, wall voids or chimneys are often prime choices. If you have a living space at all exposed to the outside, you’re at risk for bee infestations.

Properly sealing your doors and windows is a helpful bee prevention tactic. Sealing up exterior openings as well as cracks in walls or wood is also important for keeping out bees and other species that might try to invade your home. Carpenter bees attack unfinished wood under decks and sills, so finishing all of your exterior wood surfaces will go a long way in preventing future bee infestations.
