Bees & Wasps

Bees & Wasps Control

These stinging insects live in hives. Destroying the hive is one method to remove them, however, this can be quite dangerous. These pest insects will swarm and protect the hive. The stings from these insects can cause serious health issues like painful swelling, infections, nausea, and in rare cases even death from an allergic reaction. Hiring a professional exterminator in Dallas is the safest and most effective way to remove bees, hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets from your home.

How Did I Get Bees & Wasps?

Bees, hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets are always looking for the perfect place to build their hives. They like to build nests or hives inside attics and gutters, or under decks or eaves. These locations are desirable to the insects as they provide natural structural protection.

Why Is It So Difficult To Get Rid Of Bees & Wasps?

Killing these stinging insects is potentially dangerous. Not only can they attack, but the locations of the nest and hives may often be in high or difficult to reach areas, putting you at an added disadvantage when they respond to your attempts to destroy the hive. Chemical sprays may not kill these insects and just further aggravate them to attack. It is best and safest to hire a reputable pest control company.
