Preventing Pest Problems in Minnesota
Of course the best solution to bees and wasps is prevention. Now is the time to check your home for holes and gaps, (BEFORE the bees move in), especially under the edges of wood siding, and around windows, roof lines and soffits. These are the kinds of places that bees love. Bees can construct large wax nests rapidly once they enter a home. For this reason, both bees and nests should be removed as soon as possible.
Look out for low-hanging branches on trees and decks. And yes, as you can see, BBQ’s that have been stored for the winter!
MN Bee & Wasp Control and Nest Removal
Of course most of us would rather not deal with a bee swarm. The last thing you want to encounter is a cranky bee. If you discover bees already in your home, look for a Minnesota Pest Control Expert that performs bee removals. Look for a company that is familiar with both extermination and the removal of bee nests. They can also repair any damage they may have caused in a way that will prevent them from coming back!
Failure to remove a bee nest can result in big headaches later. The larger the nest, the more problems you may have with odors (from dead bees and fermenting honey), staining, and other pests such as ants, cockroaches, carpet beetles, wax moths, mice and other rodents. Traces of old comb are highly attractive to bees, and they will reinfest the building unless the nest is removed.
We’ve waited this long for spring; we should be enjoying it and not worrying about bees and wasps. If you’ve got some bees you’d like removed, please Bee Careful! Or contact us and we will remove them for you!
