Bee Hive Removal
If our pest control specialist determines a colony of honey bees is setting up shop on your property, we will ask you to work with a local beekeeper to safely remove the hive as we do not treat honey bees.

Frequently Asked Questions
Stinging Insect Control FAQs
In our opinion, stinging insects are active at the worst time of year. When the weather is nice and you want to spend time outdoors, stinging insects are buzzing around. Not only that, as the summer goes on, colonies will reach peak numbers, and when their natural food sources deplete, workers will start foraging for food. Late summer and early fall are when Midwest property owners should pay even closer attention to stinging insects on their properties.
While a professional is your best, most effective option for stinging insect control, there are a few ways you can help make your home safe against these dangerous pests!
To help make your home and yard less attractive to stinging insects, you can:
- Keep a tight-fitting lid or lock on all trash cans and compost bins around your home
- Clean up any leftover food or drinks after eating outside—ants aren’t the only ones who enjoy a picnic
- Keep trees, bushes, and shrubs off the exterior of your home
- Place tight-fitting caps on all chimneys—this helps keep rodents, wildlife, and other pests out as well
Common nesting sites include, but are not limited to:
- Hollow tree trunks
- Underground in abandoned rodent burrows
- Inside HVACs
- Behind window shutters
- Under the edge of roofs
- Beneath decks and patios
- On playground equipment, swings and toys
