Bees are an essential part of our world, and we need them to ensure our plants and flowers and trees continue to grow. Bees are fantastic additions to our gardens, and they help to improve the quality of plants and flowers, which lead to better quality fruits and vegetables. Most gardeners love when bees show up in their yard. Even though bees are part of our world, you still need bee control in your homes.
However, there is a limit to the good of bees, and in some cases, a bee can be a significant pest, causing strings, and other issues. So, when this happens, bee control and bee removal are essential, and this is where a company like 24H Pest Pros comes into play. As you keep reading, you will learn about the following:
There are three major types of bees that you might encounter on your property: honey bees, bumblebees, and carpenter bees.
Honey bees are the smallest of these three bee types, and they often live in hives, which people install in their backyards so that they can harvest the honey. They are small and make homes in commercially made hives or in hollowed out trees. They might also create a home in your attic, garage, or even fence posts. These bees are known for their stings when provoked, but once the bee stings, it dies.
Bumblebees are more massive than honey bees, and they are fuzzy and less aggressive, too. These are the bees that gardeners love because the fuzz on their bodies helps to fertilize plants and flowers in the garden. Just keep something in mind…though these bees are “cute” and not as aggressive, they can still sting if they don’t feel safe, and unlike honey bees, the bumblebee doesn’t die when it stings…so it can sting over and over again.
Finally, we have the most problematic bee…the carpenter bee. These bees are large, too, and they look similar to a bumblebee. However, they are not fuzzy. The carpenter bee does not make hive-like other bees. Instead, it burrows into the wood, such as the wood that makes up your home, and as their populations grow, they can easily cause hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in damage to your property if bee removal is not done.
We can help with bee problems across the country, including in the following areas:
In many cases, the bees that might be problematic on your property just show up randomly. However, they also have found a nice place they want to live, so if you have a lot of plants or flowers, bees will naturally show up. However, bees also like sweet things, so if you have a lot of sugary sweets out on your property, you can expect bees to be close. In the case of carpenter bees, they love untreated wood, so if you have wood that is not painted, treated, or stained, they will burrow right in.
They may settle into any wood, but it is much less likely that they would go into the wood that is painted or stained than wood that is not. If you see bees, you need a bee removal service like 24H Pest Pros.
Hiring a bee exterminator is the absolute best way to remove the bees from your property. You can find several different bee control options over the counter, such as a spray, but if you don’t get the hive or nest away from the property, your problems will simply continue. A bee infestation can be challenging to deal with if you don’t work with a bee removal service, and with professional bee control, you won’t have to worry.
Again, some bees on your property are great to have, especially when you have honey bees or bumblebees. However, when you have carpenter bees, you could soon be facing a lot of issues, as they tend to invite their friends to build a home right next to theirs, and before you know it, these bees could literally be eating your home from the inside out.
We would love to offer our bee control services to you, and we can guarantee full removal of any beehive or nest that has appeared on your property.

How much does it cost to get rid of bees?
Bee removal prices can start at $150 and go up to $2,000. It all depends on the spacing, where the bees are located, and how large of an infestation it is.
How do you keep bees from coming back?
Bees dislike the smell of mothballs, so you can put them inside the home and around the yard to keep bees away. However, this method doesn’t work if you have pets, as mothballs are toxic to them.
How do I get rid of bees without killing them?
You can burn paper and wood from below the beehive. This creates smoke and gets the bees to leave without hurting them.
