Facts About Bees In Phoenix, Arizona
Although bees are an essential component of agriculture and the natural environment, providing essential pollination services, they can become a liability in and around areas inhabited by humans. Many people are allergic to bee stings, and hives pose additional risks, even to those that are not.
There are 25,000 species of bees worldwide, but most homeowners in the Phoenix area are unaware that over 90% of wild bees in the Valley are, in fact, Africanized honey bees. These bees can be quite aggressive and may even cause death. Therefore, you should never take bees in the wild lightly.

Signs Of A Bee Infestation
Look for bee infestation progression. Homeowners will observe increased bee activity on their property, usually around windows and eaves. Bees are irritatingly noisy and will get your attention. This activity is typically a sign that they are nesting nearby. Bees move in swarms as they look for new locations to colonize. Spotting swarms around your home will alert you that they are scouting for a place to nest nearby. Active nests show that the bees have made a home on your property. They tend to nest in low-activity areas such as floorboards, trees, and walls. Homeowners suspecting a bee nest in their home can determine its location by observing their activity. Honey bees tend to stain ceilings and walls with the honey they produce. This honey will leave dark spots and point out the precise location of the infestation.
Bee Control Solutions From ACTION Termite & Pest Control
Spotting bees in your home is usually a red flag for many. Ignoring the manifesting problem will not make it go away. A solution needs to be effected by the homeowner to make the property safe for them and their family. We recommend you contact us at ACTION Termite & Pest Control whenever you believe there is an infestation at your Arizona home. Our trained service team members are experienced and well versed in removing and relocating these insects.
We will dispatch an expert to inspect the infestation situation and decide on a course of ACTION. These service team members are well equipped with specialized material to handle this species safely. After locating the nest and determining a course of ACTION, we request the property residents to move to a safe location until the work is complete. In severe cases, our service team members will use ideal insecticide sprays to destroy the colony. This eradication method usually requires more than one visit as it does not affect the unhatched eggs. Once the service team member eliminates the bees, they will extract the hive to keep leaking honey and wax from damaging your structure. This measure also ensures exclusion to keep another swarm from moving in. Once our service team members remove the bees and nest, they will take the necessary steps to seal off entry points and prevent re-infestation.
In some cases, we will inflict no harm on the bee colony. However, we relocate it to a more ideal and safe location where the bees will pose no threat. This procedure involves beekeepers baiting the honey bees, placing them in a box hive, and relocating them. Service team members can only use this method if the hive is accessible. Those in walls and under floorboards are harder to handle using this method. Natural bee solutions are also available at ACTION Termite & Pest Control. Our home bee control service focuses on the principle of ensuring the safety of the homeowners. This safety measure is why we will not begin extermination until all the residents have moved to a safer location. Experts tailor our services to suit honeybees and deliver the best elimination results.
