Why do you want a bee hive removed?

  • The bees are good pollinators and are needed, so save them when possible.
  • Their hives in walls or roofs can damage your home.
  • You need to be sure they are honeybees and not wasps or hornets.
  • All stinging insects have the potential to hurt you or your children, so remove them!
  • Often, the nests are hard to reach, so professional help is needed.

Nest Pest Control Removes Bee Hives Safely

There are three major species of flying stinging insect here in the DC area. First are the helpful pollinators. Honeybees are in decline recently, so we take pains to save their colonies when possible. We then make sure to take them to a beekeeper so they can continue to do their work of pollinating plants.

Next, we have non-honey bees. Usually these bees stay away from homes. They tend to build their nests in trees or the ground far away from people. But occasionally they will attach to a home. We will remove these nests, too.

Then we have Hornets, wasps and yellow-jackets. Wasp nest removal includes destroying the colony, and we do that. We destroy hornets nests and yellow jacket nests, too. These can be especially harmful to homes as the “glue” they use to attach to the house can sometimes destroy the siding or stay on the brick for years.

We Know The Difference Between A Bee Hive And Wasp Nest

You probably know the difference between a beehive and wasp nest, too, but a lot of people do have trouble recognizing the difference. This is especially true when the hive is in the rafters, or behind a wall or otherwise obscured or high in the air.

There are a couple of things that we do when preparing. We need to know:

Is it a bee hive? (We will get a local honey producer to take the bees if so)

What story is the nest on?

How big is the wasp nest or bee hive?

After we determine what kind of insect we need to work with and where the nest is located, we can get to work removing the hive. If it is a bee’s hive, we will put them to sleep and as carefully as possible remove these precious pollinators to a different locale where they can be put to work. If the hive is too invasive, we save what we can, but must destroy the rest.

If the nest is of wasps, yellow jackets or hornets, we will spray them with a chemical that is lethal to these pests. After all are dead, we will carefully remove the hive from wherever it is and destroy it for good. We then douse the area to make sure no other wasps will create a new nest anytime soon.

Here’s a job we did…

When you have a swarm of bees building a nest on your house, you need to get them out of there quick! They can destroy the house by eating the frame or siding to make the paper for their nest, plus the nest itself damages siding, soffits and fascia. The insects are also potentially dangerous to your family, whether they are wasps, hornets, yellow jackets or even honey bees.

When we were called to come out and remove the enormous hive on this house, we were surprised it had grown so large! Then again, if it’s not in your face when you are going in and out of your house, a nest can grow without you even realizing it. This nest was made apparent once the bees started to fly around the family’s son’s room.

They called Nest Pest Control to come and remove this hive. The last image is just another example of a removed wasp’s nest from the job we did with the image earlier on this page.

FAQ

Maybe you have had a question about bees, pest control or our company. So have others and here are a couple. Call us with any other questions!

Do you remove carpenter bees, too?
We do. And there is a great reason to do so. Unlike termites, carpenter bees typically do not damage the structure to the point of collapse. However, their natural predator, the woodpecker, will be attracted to your home to eat them and their larvae. This can really cause damage, so we need to get there fast, exterminate the bees, seal up the holes and keep those birds from pecking your home to bits.
How much does it cost to remove a bee's nest?
I hate to say it, but, that all depends on your situation. How high above ground is it? Is it inside the structure or on the surface? What kind of insect are we treating for (carpenter bees really dig in and sometimes multiple treatments are necessary, for instance.)
The best thing to do is to call us, or send a message using our forms, and tell us about the situation. We can then give an estimate that will be pretty accurate, unless we find some other problems to deal with.
How soon can you remove this wasp nest?
If you call now, we can usually schedule you in within a day or two. In late summer, it might be a little longer, whereas in the winter, we might be able to do it same-day (almost no nests are around or made in winter, unless it is existing.) The nice thing about winter is that all the insects are hibernating and easier to remove. But in summer they are easier to find, so either way, you need them removed!
Who will I talk to when I call?
You will speak with James, most likely. If not, you will speak with one of our dispatchers and they can answer your questions, etc. James is the owner of Nest Pest Control, a DBA of Nest Services
