The Truth About Bees

It is worth remembering that maintaining a healthy bee population is beneficial to humans!

One reason bees are beneficial is pollination, helping to provide food in the form of fruits, berries, nuts, leaves, roots and seeds. One out of every three bites you put in your mouth was pollinated by honeybees! . Bees are an important part of our ecosystem and contribute substantially to our economy.

If you have bees in trees or bushes near your home keep people away from them. Often, the bees are merely resting and will be gone within a few days. Killing bees should only be done when absolutely necessary. If you have a bee infestation that poses a safety risk to you or your pets, we can help you.

Considering Hiring a Bee Removal Specialist?

We offer many services for flying, stinging insects including: live bee hive relocation, insect elimination, hive or nest removal, opening and structure repair and bee proofing. Bee proofing is necessary to guard against future bee colonization. Repair services are priced separately from bee services.

The Bee Situation in Southern California

If you live in Southern California, such as in San Diego, Orange County, or the Riverside area, you should expect to have a beehive to contend with on your property around every 15 years on average. In reality, you may get them more or less often – and if you’re fortunate enough, you might never have a problem with bees at all.

Bees are a common pest, but they can result in serious damage to your property, as well as pose a public safety threat to residents and guests on your property. For these reasons, if there is an infestation of bees on or around your property, it should not be taken lightly. Bee Protection in California.

Early Signs of Potential Swarms

Early Signs of Potential Swarms

It’s important to note that simply having bees buzzing around your home or property is not necessarily a surefire sign that you are dealing with an active beehive. You may be seeing scout bees, which have been tasked with the responsibility of swarming out to look for a new home to build a hive in.

To the untrained eye, these scout bees may look like the same bees you’d see coming from an active hive. Those trained in bee control, however, can spot the subtle differences in the way the bees are behaving to tell whether or not they are part of an active beehive within the structure, or scouting to create a new one.

If you do have these scouting bees around your property, it’s important to call for pest control in San Diego. It’s the first step to discourage these scout bees from inviting tens of thousands of fellow bees to make a home in your yard. Without taking these steps to get the bees to continue their search elsewhere, there is a 50/50 chance that your home will soon be invaded by a swarm of aggressive bees looking to share your property with you.

Scout bees tend to scout an area for around three days before they have the larger swarm move in to make their permanent home in the location. If you’ve been seeing bees swarming around your property for five days or more, then it’s usually safe to assume that the bees in question are from a growing or active hive and aren’t just scout bees.

Bees vs. Wasps: What’s the Difference?

As we said before, while they are a pest, bees fulfill an essential role in keeping our plant life growing. Wasps, however, don’t have nearly as impressive or important of a job – and they can pose a much larger threat to humans.

Wasps often are identified wrongly as being bees, as both share their signature black and yellow striped design on their bodies. This misconception can cause issues down the line, especially when a pest control San Diego company seeks to remedy the situation using bee removal and extermination services. While wasps and honeybees share some similarities, you should be able to tell the difference between the two quite easily by keeping a few simple facts in mind.

When it comes to seeing either pest on your property, here is what you need to know in order to be able to tell them apart:

  • Wasps have longer, more slender bodies. They also make their nests on the underside of things like awnings and eaves, away from rain and sunlight. A wasp’s nest tends to have the appearance of globs of mud that have been stuck under the eaves or within the walls of the structure it’s been built on.

Treatment

We offer many services for flying, stinging insects including: live bee hive relocation, insect elimination, hive or nest removal, opening and structure repair and bee proofing. Bee proofing is necessary to guard against future bee colonization. Repair services are priced separately from bee services.

Bees Treatment
  • Corky’s supports environmental stewardship and recommends live bee hive removal whenever possible. Bee service starts @ $250.00 and requires a trained professional who practices safe and stress-free removal for the bees keeping the colony together.
  • The actual price of hive removal depends on the complexity of the removal process. After the hive treatment and removal there will still be bees that were not in the hive at the time of the service. If a hive is not removed, it could draw bees back in to establish another hive. If a bee hive containing wax and honey is left in a structure it can ferment, stink and ooze down the walls.

  • The number one goal of our service is resident safety. Any hive or nest causing you concern on your property can be treated for elimination or removal. It is important to stay away from hives or nests and let the experts handle them.

The Bee Removal Process

1

Confirm You Have Bees on the Property

Sometimes these insects with stingers might look like bees, but in reality, they might actually be a hornet or a wasp. Because different insects require different equipment and methods to remove, it’s important for us to first inspect and know what we are up against.

2

Find the Hive

If you do indeed have a hive on your property, we need to find its location. There may even be multiple hives to contend with, depending on the severity of the infestation. Our bee specialists will be able to determine where the entrance points are on your property that needs to be closed off in order to prevent more bees entering.

3

Remove the Hive

Our professional bee removers are equipped and trained to handle a wide range of type of nests and hives. We use tools such as protective suits and bee poles to ensure that our bee removal is an effective and safe process throughout.

Recommendation

Even big bees can get into a hole a quarter of an inch in diameter. This means even the small gaps between siding may not be safe.
However, learning to seal those places with caulking or patching holes in your window screens should help deter bees from entering your home.
