We Abolish Bees & Wasps
A bee or wasp nest at your home or business can be unsettling to see and comes with the threat of a painful sting. Let the trained pest control technician from Abolish Pest Control Services eliminate the immediate population with pesticides. They also conduct a visual inspection to detect any areas where mechanical control can be applied to get rid of the infestation.
Managing Bee & Wasp Swarms
The most important element of wasp and bee control is to destroy the nest. Aerosol "wasp and hornet" sprays can be used to knock down bees and wasps around the nest. Small amounts of pesticides (dust and wettable powder formulations work well) applied into the nests of carpenter bees and cicada killers provide good control. Nests of mud daubers can be controlled this way or by simply scraping them off structures.
To prevent re-infestation, we apply finishes to unfinished wood to discourage carpenter bees. Sometimes, yellow jacket and honeybee nests occur in empty spaces like vents, attics, crawlspaces, or hollow walls. Destroying nests in these locations can be difficult, requiring the services of pest management experts.
Another special case occurs when large numbers of yellow jackets forage in public areas such as parks, schools, and zoos. Attracted to human food, especially meats and sweet liquids, wherever they are being prepared, eaten or discarded, yellow jackets pose an increased threat to humans. Control is often difficult. When located in wooded areas, the nests can be difficult if not impossible to find and treat.
