Bees, Wasps, & Hornets

Garland Honey Bee Removal

Honey bees generally do not infest homes as much as other flying pests.  However, when they do, they can do quite a bit of damage.  Honey bees can chew through walls to get inside where they then begin storing large amounts of honey, which invites other bees and wasps.  Their waste will also attract moths and beetles.

If a bee colony is found within a building wall it must be removed.  Call us for your honey bee removal.

Africanized Honey Bee Extermination

They will often find their way into a home through small holes in the exterior walls  of the home.  Once they are inside, like the standard honey bee they will create a nest.  You may also find their nests hanging in various places on your property.  Although generally found in the Southern parts of the United States, they are believed to be making their way North, so be on the lookout and call our Garland bee removal experts if you need help protecting your home against these invaders.

Because these are more aggressive than standard bees, they are often feared more.  When a bee stings it will release an alarm pheromone that signals for others to come attack. With them, you are sometimes talking about the entire hive. This can be dangerous for anyone, not just with bee allergies.

Ground Nesting Bee, Wasp, and Hornet and Removal

Generally people only think to look up when looking out for stinging insects.  Unfortunately, that will not protect them from those insects that have ground nests such as wasps, hornets or yellow jackets.  These insects will burrow into the ground with multiple openings or entry points.  These burrows are often found along the edge of a bank or along a line of trees.

Some types of ground bees, wasps, and yellow jackets are very dangerous to treat.  Because of this it is very important that you keep all children and pets away and do not try to remove them yourself.  Protect your family by calling usl to exterminate any ground nesting bees, wasps, hornets or yellow jackets.

Carpenter Bee Extermination

Carpenter Bees can cause quite of damage due to their burrowing into the exposed dry wood of building decks, fascia and soffits, windowsills, railings, and wooden siding.  They bore holes that are about 3/8″ in diameter then build their nests inside the hollowed out space.

You should suspect a carpenter bee infestation if you find large amounts of sawdust and pollen below the hole which is being chewed and excavated.  Our Garland bee exterminators will get rid of carpenter bees for you and seal up any areas where they have bored holes.

Rodent Control

Garland rodents, such as mice and rats, are social creatures. This means that they tend to get lonely without companionship. Once they find a good source of food, warmth, and security, such as your home, they’ll bring their entire family and start adding to the family. This is why it’s important to contact one of our experts as soon as you suspect that you might have them invading your home.

More Rats & Mice Information

Not only are most people disgusted by the thought of rats or mice in their home, but these are also pose a number of health threats. According to the CDC, they can carry the following diseases:

  • Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
  • Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome
  • Lassa Fever
  • Leptospirosis
  • Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis (LCM)
  • Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
  • Plague
  • Rat-Bite Fever
  • Salmonellosis
  • South American Arenaviruses
  • Tularemia

While not all it will be carriers of the above diseases, they can still be a nuisance around the house as they chew everything in sight.  It is not uncommon to find chewed electrical cords and food supplies when mice and rats are involved.  They will chew through practically anything when trying to get to food.  In fact, they will even chew through a wall if they think there is food on the other side.

Now, they don’t have to chew a very large hole because they can squeeze through tiny holes.  In fact, they can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel while rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half dollar.  This is usually how mice and rats originally get into a home or business.  They have squeezed through some tiny hole that no one noticed. That is why it is very important that any rodent control measures include finding the gaps and holes that allowed entry in the first place.  This is a service that our pest control specialists can perform for you.

Below is a list of the common areas to find these holes and gaps inside your home.  Remember that they are not restricted to low areas as they are expert climbers.  The common areas are:

  • Around doors.
  • Around the fireplace.
  • Around the pipes under sinks and washing machines.
  • Around the pipes going to hot water heaters and furnaces.
  • Around floor vents and dryer vents.
  • Between the floor and wall juncture
  • In the basement or crawl space and in floor drains of basement or laundry room
  • Inside, under, and behind kitchen cabinets, refrigerators and stoves.
  • Inside closets near the floor corners
  • Inside the attic.

Fill any small holes and gaps you find with steel wool which is kept in place with caulking around the edges.  Larger holes can be fixed with metal sheeting, cement, lath metal or screen, or hardware cloth.  Flashing can also be used around the base of your home to prevent entry.  If this all sounds like too much work for you, don’t fear.  We’d be happy to send out our pest control experts to not only rid your home of existing rodents, but to secure it from future invasions as well.  Just give us a call at (972) 479-5710 to schedule your consultation.
