Proper removal depends heavily on correctly identifying which types of bees have invaded your space. In areas like Springfield and Hampden, you are most likely to find honey bees, bumble bees, or carpenter bees. Honey bees tend to swarm most frequently in the spring. They also display less aggressive behavior. Similar pests, such as wasps, hornets and yellow jackets, are often spotted as well and are the more aggressive flying pests. Most bees are shorter than two inches long. While they can come in different hues, the most recognizable color combination is black and yellow.

How To Get Rid of Bees

There are a variety of methods for addressing your bee problem. Hive removal and aerosol treatments are popular methods for a lot of homeowners. It may be tempting to try and tackle the problem yourself, but it’s always safest to have a professional at least take a look. Reports show that people who attempt to use dangerous or hazardous materials to solve what is actually a severe insect issue can cause more immediate and long-term damage. Pest professionals are armed with the knowledge, proper equipment and expertise to assess the situation and generate a logical and safe solution.
