  • 1. ARE BEES BECOMING A Prevent Stings in your Yard This PROBLEM? Year
  • 2. AN IMPORTANT PARTNER Bees are an important part of Florida’s ecosystem. Without bees, many of the farming operations throughout the state simply wouldn’t be able to survive. Even with that in mind, though, they can often be a nuisance to homeowners and cause serious problems to some. Many people are allergic to bee stings and need the help of bee pest control experts to keep their home bee & wasp free.
  • 3. WHAT KIND OF BEES ARE YOU FACING?There are approximately 20,000 speciesof bees worldwide. All of them, though,live in colonies, and if you’re facing aswarm, you may be dealing with beeslooking for a new home.Identifying them can be essential todeveloping the right treatment method.If you need help determining the type ofbees around your home, contact aBrevard County bee control expert, itmay help to determine what kind ofbees you’re dealing with.
  • 4. THE BUMBLEBEEBumblebees typically nest in the ground, butthey can also be seen near your patio or deck.In some cases, they’ll build nests in attics orunder roof beams.If you become a threat to a bumblebee, theybegin to buzz at a louder volume. They getquite aggressive when they think their nestsare in danger.They have six legs and are black with yellowstripes. The best way to prevent this problem isto remove potential nesting materials from thehome.
  • 5. THE CARPENTER BEECarpenter bees build nests forthemselves and their young. They canliterally drill through the wood in yourhome. Because their stingers aren’tbarbed, they can repeatedly sting anindividual. Just an inch in length, thesebees are have a blue-black colorscheme.They tend to prefer bare wood, andpainting or staining the surfacesoutside your home can be a gooddeterrent. They also like nests inhigher places, so the nesting site canbe tough to reach.
  • 6. THE HONEYBEEHoneybees are responsible for pollinating manycrops in the US. They are the most recognizabletype of bee. Golden with yellow brown bands,they will build natural nests in the crevices oftrees, but some have found nests in the attic orthe chimney of their home.They can only sting once, as their stinger tearsoff when they try to get away. The coloniesthemselves can be quite large, and removal isoften a messy job.
  • 7. THE KILLER BEE “Killer Bees” are actually Africanized Honeybees, and they can chase someone up to a quarter of a mile if they become aggressive. While their venom is no more dangerous than that of a traditional honeybee, their attacks can be more serious because they often attack in larger numbers. Like some other species, they can only sting once as their stingers tear off when they attempt to escape. They have the ability to build nests in strange places, including old tires, crates, and even boxes. If you are being chased by one of these bees, try running in a zigzag pattern, then find shelter inside a home or a car immediately. If you find a “Killer Bee” nest on your property, call a bee nest removal company right away.
  • 8. BEE PROOFING TIPS One way to make certain you don’t have a problem with bees is to locate areas that may prove attractive to a swarm. Holes outside your home that lead to attractive covered areas, voids in tree branches, and large recesses in your home’s roof are all the perfect places for bees to hide. Be sure to block these off with screens or caulking to prevent a potential problem and call a Melbourne bee control company for assistance.
  • 9. IF YOU DO HAVE A PROBLEM Your first step if you notice an issue should be to call a professional. Don’t try to cover up the nest or cut off the bees’ access to the nest, as you need to remove the colony before you do that. You should also try to avoid the bees, as a sting could be life- threatening. Leave this job to the Brevard County bee control professionals.
  • 10. IF A STING OCCURSIf you are stung by a bee, check tosee if a stinger has been leftbehind. If so, gently scrape it out ofthe skin. Bug do not pull it. Use yourfingernail or a credit card to scrapeit out, then wash the area with soap& water.Apply a cold pack for a fewminutes, then take acetaminophento help control the pain.Watch for signs of an allergicreaction, which could includedifficulty breathing, larger areas ofswelling, or even fainting.
