Bees, Wasps, and Hornet Removal
If you’ve ever gotten stung by a bee, wasp, or hornet, then you know how inconvenient and dangerous they can be. Aside from stings, they can also damage your property. Especially if you’ve got them swarming on your property, it’s important that you take it seriously and put a plan in place for long-term removal.
Here are some of the most effective methods you can use to remove the pests:
Use of Pest Traps
Pest traps are used to trap these insects, to either kill them or move them to a secluded place away from your home. If you can, always try to remove honeybees without harming or killing them. Their populations are dwindling, and aside from honey production, they are important to the environment. Wasps and hornets are more aggressive and should be handled in a serious manner for permanent removal.
Use of Baits
One trap that works for all three types are sweet and scented bait traps. Bees, wasps, and hornets are known to love sweet and scented flower nectar, as it’s their food source. Use the same idea to attract and remove them from your premises. You may use fruit juice, beer, wine, sweet soda pop or water mixed with jam, maple syrup, or molasses for your DIY traps.
Use of Selected Chemicals
When it comes to using chemicals or pesticides, consult a pest control professional instead of handling it on your own, as the chemicals can pose a health risk to you or your pets. If you need to use them on your own, follow the manufacturer’s instructions and take all safety measures. It is not wise to use chemicals for bee removal as you need them safe for honey production, but that does not apply for wasps and hornets.
If you have any doubts about your ability to remove the bees, wasps, or hornets, then consult a pest control professional that can help you get rid of the insects safely and effectively, as they the correct training and equipment. Especially before removing the insects on your own, determine whether you are allergic to bees, wasps, or hornets as the effects of their stings can be fatal.
