Lakeland Honey Bee Removal
Honey bees generally do not infest homes as much as other flying pests. However, when they do, they can do quite a bit of damage. Honey bees can chew through walls to get inside where they then begin storing large amounts of honey, which invites other bees and wasps. Their waste will also attract moths and beetles.
If a bee colony is found within a building wall, it should be removed immediately. Call Lakeland Pest Control for your honey bee removal.
Lakeland Africanized Honey Bee Extermination
Because Africanized Honey Bees are more aggressive than standard bees, they are often feared more. When a bee stings it will release an alarm pheromone that signals for others to come attack. With Africanized Honey Bees you are sometimes talking about the entire hive. This can be dangerous for anyone, not just those with bee allergies.
Africanized Honey Bees will often find their way into a home through small holes in the exterior walls of the home. Once they are inside, like the standard honey bee they will create a nest. You may also find their nests hanging in various places on your property. Be sure to call our Lakeland Africanized Honey Bee specialists if you think you’re being invaded.
Ground Nesting Bee, Wasp, and Hornet and Removal
Generally people only think to look up when looking out for stinging insects. Unfortunately, that will not protect them from those insects that have ground nests such as wasps, hornets or yellow jackets. These insects will burrow into the ground with multiple openings or entry points. These burrows are often found along the edge of a bank or along a line of trees. Some types of ground bees, wasps, and yellow jackets are very dangerous to treat. Because of this it is very important that you keep all children and pets away and do not try to remove them yourself. Protect your family by having our Lakeland bee and hornet experts come out to exterminate any ground nesting bees, wasps, hornets or yellow jackets.
Lakeland Carpenter Bee Extermination
Carpenter Bees can cause quite of damage due to their burrowing into the exposed dry wood of building decks, fascia and soffits, windowsills, railings, and wooden siding. They bore holes that are about 3/8″ in diameter then build their nests inside the hollowed out space. You should suspect a carpenter bee infestation if you find large amounts of sawdust and pollen below the hole which is being chewed and excavated. Lakeland Pest Control will get rid of carpenter bees for you and seal up any areas where they have bored holes.
