The Importance of Yorba Linda Bee & Wasp Control
Wasps and bees are sometimes mistaken for one another, but there are actually several key differences between these stinging insects. There are many different types of bees, but as a rule of thumb, these insects do not sting unprovoked. Bees only sting to protect themselves or when they feel their home is under attack. Wasps, on the other hand, are predatory and much more aggressive, and may sting anyone they perceive as being a threat to their territory. Bees can also sting just once, and always die after attacking. However, a single wasp can sting you multiple times.
Wasps and bees also have different lifestyle habits. Some bumblebee colonies have populations over 75,000, while wasps' colonies usually have less than 10,000 members. Queen wasps build nests for a single colony, while workers bees act as a kind of collective to maintain the hive. Wasps also hibernate during the winter, while bees survive on food reserves, staying alive by huddling together by the thousands in order to accumulate heat. And while wasps do not make honey, all bee species can produce and store honey in their hives.
If you have noticed a beehive or wasp nest on your property, you should:
- Give the bees/wasps their space: The worst thing you can do when you notice bees and wasps in and around your house is to get territorial. Trying to swat these insects away is just going to put them on the attack, and as we discussed above, it does not take much for a wasp to feel threatened. Bees are more likely to swarm to protect their queen and/or hive, so if you see a beehive anywhere on your property, steer clear until you can hire a professional.
- Keep anyone with allergies far away: Pets, children, and anyone else with a known bee/wasp sting allergy should be kept as far away as possible if you find a nest on your property. If the hive is outside, just make sure no one goes near it, and if it’s inside (most likely in your attic,) try to isolate the room, keeping everyone out and containing the bee/wasp activity as best you can.
- Determine where the insects are coming from: If you are dealing with a bee/wasp infestation inside your home, try to find where the hive is without getting too close. It isn’t too common to find hives inside, though as mentioned above, they sometimes end up in attics, as well as other small wooden cavities. Outside, you can usually trace a bee/wasp hive back to the eaves and soffits around your home, as well as trees in your yard.
- Do not use insecticides or traps: You might think that you can take care of a small hive by spraying insecticide or planting a trap. However, you should think again before going down either of those routes. Most of the powerful insecticides on the market have been banned by the EPA for bee extermination—meaning that to use them for an infestation is not only dangerous but illegal. Meanwhile, traps are simply going to be ineffective for stopping a serious infestation. At the end of the day, when there is a beehive or wasp nest on your property, calling a professional is really your only option.
- Remove Hive Residue: Even after you have removed a hive from your property, it is common for bees/wasps to leave behind traces of their presence. You may find honey and honeycomb in walls and cavities inside or outside of your house. If the hive was large enough, your walls may also be damaged, so you may need to undergo some property repairs. To exclude bees and wasps from making a home on your property in the future, you should also try to seal up any cracks and entry points where they could’ve gotten in.
If you have a beehive on your property, and there is a beekeeper in your area, feel free to call and check to see if they can take that beehive off your hands.
