How To Hire Exterminators
What to look for when choosing a bee pest control professional:
- The pest management company should be licensed by the state and insured.
- Bee exterminators should be certified pest management professionals and fully licensed in the state.
- The company should be a member of a professional organization, such as the National Pest Management Association.
- The company should have a staff entomologist or access to one.
- Technicians should have experience with bees.
- Choose a company based on their quality of service, not the price. Research user reviews and testimonials to solidify your choice.
- A pre-inspection should be conducted to assess the scope of the work.
- The proposed work should follow the steps of integrated pest management, not just pesticide application.

Common Questions About Different Types Of Bees
How can I tell the difference between a bumblebee and a carpenter bee?
The upper surface of a carpenter bees’ abdomen is bare and shiny black. A bumblebee will have a hairy abdomen with some yellow markings. Male carpenter bees will have a yellow face, and the female is entirely black. The carpenter bee’s nesting habits are that of tunneling through the wood to lay their eggs, whereas a bumblebee will usually nest in ground areas.
Where are carpenter bees nests most usually found?
Carpenter bee nests are usually found in weathered softwoods, especially cedar, redwood, cypress, and pine. Common nesting sites include eaves, window trim, facia board, siding, decks, and outdoor furniture. Carpenter bees will form entrance holes that are perfectly round and about the diameter of your finger (3/8″). Often, coarse sawdust can be found beneath the entry hole.
Do carpenter bees sting like other wasps and bees?
Carpenter bees are less aggressive than other bees, but they can and will become aggressive when disturbed. Female bees protecting their nest will become the most aggressive towards disturbances and can sting. Males will fly close to the disruption for mere intimidation, for they have no stinger.
Why do I have bees in my home/business during the winter?
If you have yellow jackets during the winter, you have a nest located within your home. Over winter or nesting inside occurs in attic areas where they enter through ventilation holes, soffits, or ridge vents. Another conducive place where bees can nest is in the basement or crawl spaces where access to the exterior is located. This happens where water pipes, electrical and cable lines exit your dwelling.
Will bee stings cause any harmful side effects?
There will be a considerable amount of pain associated with the sting of a yellow jacket, depending on your pain tolerance. The only side effects will be a bump and skin irritation; ice will often heal faster. If the stinger is still in place after the incident, you must remove it immediately; if left, a possible infection to the area can occur.
How do I keep wasps/bees from entering my dwelling after your treatments?
Entry points should be filled with either steel wool or a liquid foam, we can assist you in this process as much as possible, but your efforts will be the real test in keeping yellow jackets from entering your dwelling in the future.
I don’t see any ladders in your truck; how will you reach the peaks and eves of my home/business?
We can reach the highest points of your dwelling by not using ladders with our equipment. We use a backpack sprayer that builds high amounts of pressure to shoot over 45 feet. We also have poles that extended to high peaks and eves for injection points of conducive areas.
